Turning Lights....


Recommended Posts

Noticed the turning lights on my friends 98 LS400 weren't working. Removed the light to check for failed bulb and no bulb, nor place to put one. The back of the assembly is plainly labelled 12 Volt, W5W bulb, but no hole, no socket, no wiring that we could find.

Anyone know why Lexus would go to the trouble of having a non-functioning turning light?

At one time there were pre-production photos on which showed these unused lens housings being the front side marker lights. One story is that the lenses were slightly below the minimum DOT height requirement so Toyota quickly came up with the surface mount lenses. Also on clublexus is a tutorial on how to convert these lens housings to additional marker lights.
