  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: After Failed Update, Lexus Working on Fix for Broken Infotainment Systems

Recommended Posts

2016 Lexus RX350

Not even the great, all-reliable Toyota is immune from modern software glitches. A wireless update the company uploaded to late-model Lexus models on Tuesday rendered many owners without navigation, radio controls, and other critical functions within the infotainment screen.

As of now, Lexus hasn’t come with a solution. Customers reported their Enform systems were constantly resetting while driving, while others showed flashing violet screens. Several posted their complaints via Twitter, where Lexus also reported the problem.

-

Many of our owner's vehicle head units stopped working. We are working around the clock to find a solution. Stay tuned for more information

At this point, it’s unclear how many cars are affected. Lexus Enthusiast recommends disconnecting the vehicle battery as an interim fix.

We’ve experienced two similar infotainment problems within the past couple weeks. In a 2017 Jaguar XF, the stereo stopped working and all audio controls on the touchscreen wouldn’t respond. In a 2016 Chevrolet Cruze, the entire screen shut off for 20 minutes, even after locking and restarting the car multiple times, even disabling the physical radio buttons beneath the display. Automakers of all stripes: Please, hire more software engineers, or at least teach them that beta stage isn’t good enough to push into our cars.
