Thanks for the reply. Can you narrow down? Do you know in particular which internal part of the radio that usually the culprit? Any idea the rough cost to repair it? Regards, Januar.
Lexus Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

No internal repair parts or service information for internal radio repair is available because they aren't serviced in the field. The only way to know what is wrong or what it will cost to repair is to allow a radio repair facility to diagnose the problem and then give you an estimate to repair it.
