#18 of 34 Something wrong with my lexus
May 12, 2010 (1:03 am)
I recently bought a 1994 lexus ls 400 and I was wondering how to fix the dashboard lights as well how to remove all the lights on the odometer saying I have the emergency on radiator problems supposedly oil light is on pretty much all lights are on and when I took the car in for a diagnostic test they said nothing was wrong with the car so how can I get rid of the lights and get my dash lights back like my ac controlling unit, radio, etc.
P.S. also if anyone knows if the seats from a 1995 lexus ls 400 can be put into a 1994 along with the dashboard from the 95 it will be greatly appreciated.

I have a 2004 LS430 with 80K miles. Recently a number of electrical functions stopped working . All are related to the left side of the car. The Driver's switches for RF,LR and RR windows do not work, but those windows all work from their respective local switch. The driver's window works from the drivers' window switch. The Driver's door lock switch fails to engage any of the door locks but the local switches work and the remote control switch on the key fob works. The driver's electric mirror will not work but the passenger mirror works fine. The auto mirrors close the right side, left side is dead. The driver's seat belt height adjuster switch is dead. The driver door panels have not gotten wet and I checked all related fuses in both footwell kick panels and have not found any fuses blown. Does anyone know if there is a fusible link or master fuse upstream from these devices ?

Believe it or not, all the problems I had went away when I installed a new battery. I never had trouble staring the car when the problems began and there was no traditional sign the battery was even weak, however it was six years old ( original equipment) . One night I was out visiting a friend and when I went to leave the battery was dead. I jumped it and got home. Next day I installed a new battery and voila everything worked as it should. I am stunned that with all the sensors on this car, a battery with insufficient capacity - even with the car running - would cause this issue. Then again it could be due to a reset of some setting on the car's systems which came about as a result of the battery disconnect and replacement.

I have a 2003 LS430. Tried to start car, nothing. Turned key off and back on and it started up. Intermittently the transmission is not working properly either. Any ideas?

Sure, clean/burnish the battery posts and connectors.

It has to be the battery and nothing else. These things do surprise you sometimes. It has happen me on several occasions. It could be something else that. Don't ruled anything else out just yet.

Yes, it has happened to me before, but on the driver's side. I also have a 2003 Lexus LS 430. It has happened to me on 2001 Lexus RX 300 and also on my cousin's 2003 GS 300.
