Lexus Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Lexus Expert
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question
Why not just get the problem repaired that is causing the link error voice?
I will need the vin number to pull the schematics for this, but if memory serves, the microphone and speaker for the error voice share same circuitry and cannot be uncoupled. But I will check once you post the vin number
Ok, here is the problem I see after studying the schematics. The sound signal for the Link error voice is on the same sound signal wires as the audio output wires for hearing the phone calls when using the hands free system for making phone calls. We can clip the wires for this to eliminate the Link error voice on start up but you lose hearing phone conversation as well, which is as bad as losing the microphone.
So unfortunately they are indelibly linked and no way to uncouple without losing the phone hands free system for phone calls.

Correct in that it needs a complete circuit.
That right speaker is part of the audio sound system so it could be unplugged without affecting the hands free system
