Ok the initial issue was the sound system
Car was bought from an Acura Dealer, they had arranged with local Lexus Dealer t replace the amp
But after getting the run Arround for two weeks about they order the wrong part and then the part was bad they ordered
I just figured I would get fixed my self
Took $600 and was that worried about it
Then day the whole sound system came back to life
The battery was weak so I replaced it
Everything worked well for a week then one of the power windows stopped working and sound went off
Then the window started working the sound came back on
Then started noticing a really rough ride in the back
The height switch was not worked
Took it to local Toyota Dealer they spend 3 hours checking everything it all looked good except was not getting power to one air pumps
So I picked up every worked again
So I don’t know what it could be
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Now the Height works off and on, and same with sound, the windows are working OK now.
any thoughts?

based on what you have described I would suspect either a weak alternator or faulty ignition switch.

aside from that, it would have to be a failed module on the vehicle causing interference for other modules, taking other systems offline. in this case I would suspect the amp most likely.
