Dear fellow Lexus owners, my 98 Lexus ES300 apparently has a burned out  center brake light bulb.  I couldn't figure out how to access it and change it.  Help! JC

I've never owned an ES300 but the high mounted center stop light housing on the 2000 LS400 I used to have was removed by prying up the front edge being careful not to break the springy tabs the hold it down. 

I'll attach two images:  A diagram of the 1998 ES300 stop light and a photo of what the one on my 2000 LS400 looked like.

      Yesterday, I was stuck in snow and after spinning my wheels and going back and forth for a long time I managed to get the car out. I do not know if this in any way affected the current situation, but afterwards several warning lights had come on: "P/S", red “BRAKE" light, the yellow brake light, “ABS”, “APS OFF”. The power steering has stopped working. The VSC and Check Engine warnings were also on. Also, and most seriouisly the speedometer and the odometer have stopped working.

      What could have caused this catastrophic situation?
      I thought maybe I had blown a fuse, and wanted to check the fuse box in the engine compartment in front of the passenger side. I opened it, but was not able to open the clear plastic cover over the back row of fuses. Is there a trick to prying open this cover to the fuses?

      The drivers side LED outer brake/ tail light has a few LED lights out. The middle row but not all the lights are out. They dont light up when the brake is depressed or just as running lights. What is needed to replace the LEDs? Has anyone else run into this? Does the whole Housing need to be replaced?
      I uninstalled the light assembly from the car but cant figure out how to replace the broken lights?

      Hey everyone,

      I'm not new to the forum, however haven't been on in a long while, and some how can't access old account.

      I have the following issues with my 2006 GS300 only 40,000 on my baby:

      All lights are coming on. P/S, Brake Light, ABS, AFS off, and Check engine light (possible tire pressure). Car will not shift out of park. unless using shift lock release button. A/C display on screen not working (Frozen), or manual buttons for usage. Gear indictator on dash not lighting up showing current gear. Temperature guage stuck on cold all the way on bottom. Gas light is always on and bounces up and down briefly. Windshield washer spray stopped working. All of this occured after installing Prestigious Society's module.

      The good new the module works!

      The bad new my car is a nightmare now and can't not be driven long distances now. I had a trip planned on Friday going to Toronto from Boston.

      I have attached pics below of everything that came on.

      I tried disconnecting the battery and letting it sit for an hour before connecting it back. Issue still remains.

      I had Vais Soundlinq 2 before and Grom in the past without an issue

      Can someone help me out with some advice!

      I would like to fix it before a sad trip to the stealership>Lexus or Toyota.

      Thanks again!! :chairshot:
