After an accident on my 2011 ES 350 I replaced the front headlights, cannot afford the originals - so bought the aftermarket ones. They look OK but they not equipped with AFS system, so now I have this AFS OFF warning light constantly flashing on my dashboard. I did some searching but wasn't able to find much on how to easily disable it. First I tried switching AFS ON/OFF button - but it did not do any good. Somebody suggested removing the fuse, but I was not able to locate one specifically for AFS. So now the last resort is to find the AFS Module and unplug the wires. I checked one location on driver's side under the side carpet but it wasn't there. Anyone knows where the damn AFS module is located on ES 350 ???
Retiring at 68 and thinking of selling my Honda Odyssey and getting a true Luxury car; a Lexius. Zeroing in on an older ES 350 or RX. Maybe even a Hybrid one.
So, I ask you experienced Lexus owners, is this a bad Idea for a single woman who can’t fix her own car? And the closest Lexus shop is 2 hours away?
I’d like to keep the price around 25,000 or less.
Thank you for any insights, advice, etc
I recently bought a used 2007 Lexus ES350 that has a melted dashboard. I’ve read everywhere that Lexus covered this problem until 2017 but the previous owner never took it in to get replaced. I got quoted at the dealership $1400 for the new dashboard plus an additional $800 labor fee to get it replaced. I’m not trying to spend $2200 to get a dashboard replaced so I am planning on replacing the dashboard myself if I can find a new one. I was wondering if anyone knows what part number the replacement dashboards are so I don’t end up buying another one that will melt?
