I have recently changed the front passenger side turn signal bulb on my 2000 Lexus Es300. there was a crack in the clear plastic housing which let some water in. I've since drained, dried, and sealed it. What i noticed when taking out the old bulb is where the bulb electrical connections had some chemical build up that i clean out as best as possible. What other options to i have in fixing this problem? Turn signal clicks abnormally and the dashboard still indicates light malfunction. HELP!
I have a 1992 Lexus es300.
All of my dash lights went out when I started my car, and the AC doesn't work, nor the cigarette
lighter. They do not flash or turn back on. The needles and gauges don't move either.
The car starts great! It can go on the highway and drive like a dream.
But when idling at a red light, stop sign, or pulling into the drive
way, I hear a small click (like a light bulb noise) and the car completely shuts off, engine and all.
When all of this happened, here is what we did:
I did have a loose battery cable, so we changed that and both are new and secure now.
I replaced the air filter, which had been rough/hardened and moderately dirty.
We replaced the fuse related to the dashboard (not sure which one, but
you experts probably already know), and it started working.... the lights, needles, and gauges, as well as the A/C and cigarette lighter... until (DUM DUM DUMMMM......♫)
about 10 mins later the fuse blew. And then we tried again and it blew
again. So I am guessing I have a short.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I would appreciate it like nothing else.
Also, this doesn't look right... Don't know what it is or why it's like this. It's just behind the radiator. #Helpasistah
The seat belt warning light on my console remains on, and I believe its likely that a fuse needs to be replaced to make this light go out; does anyone know which fuse (location #) controls this warning light? And, if it's not the fuse, where to start looking for a remedy?
Hello everyone. I am new to car maintenance and when I bought this car, I noticed that both the fog lights were out. I'm guessing the problem would be either the fuse or the bulbs. If it was the bulbs, how much work is expected to be put in to change both of them? What bulbs would you guys recommend? What type of fuse does the 1995 SC400 use? Blade fuse or mini fuse? or are these two the same?
also, is the daytime running light fuse also the same sized fuse(not amperage wise but physical fuse size) as those lights also do not work and I suspect blown fuses.
Thank you for the help.
