I presume the repair has been made. I helped a co-worker with her 99, same symptoms. This has an elaborate climate system, accessed behind the glove box. Allow several hours, and at least $160 for the new air mix servo, the likely culprit. There are 2 others, the mode servo (floor/vent/defrost/mix), and recirc servo, less likely, since heat is the issue here. here is a forum link, a little googling will show the process. http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/topic/71031-no-cabin-heat-2000-rx300/ The Lexus dealer charges $500 and up to fix this.
