#10 of 34 LS 400 dash board light flicks
Sep 15, 2009 (5:10 am)
Hello there, I have a Lexus 1993 and whenever I drive, the dashboard light will sometimes goes off, and comes back on. It fluctuates but stays off most of the times. It really doesn’t bother me during the day but at night. I cannot even see or know how many miles I am going most of the times at night. Please does anyone experience the same similar problem and what can be the cause or how do I fix this?

I have a 1996 Lexus LS400 with a cigarette lighter that has no power. What could be the problem? How difficult is this to change?

Normally a regular blade fuse, but there is a fusiable link on the back of the lighter socket in case the cigarette lighter gets stuck and overheats.

What are the steps to remove the cigarette lighter and get to that fusable link....it didn't look like there was an easy way or removing it.

2004 LS 430 with very low mileage - approx 25K. Everything was OK at last use 2 days ago. When I went to start it today it was totally dead. Cannot turn ignition even when wiggling steering wheel, cannot shift out of Park, smart key will not lock or unlock doors or trunk, under-dash levers for trunk and gas door don't work, horn won't blow and cannot lock or unlock doors using rocker switch on arm rest. When I push a button on the smart key to lock or unlock doors/trunk a red light comes on on the smart key. In short it appears the entire electrical system is dead. I have checked most of the fuses. Would appreciate suggestions. Thanks.

#18 of 34 Something wrong with my lexus
May 12, 2010 (2:03 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.
#19 of 34 LS 430 has suffered a "stroke"

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 ?
