'01 RX300 backup lights suck. Any remedies out there?


Recommended Posts

'01 RX300 backup lights are so dim as to be nearly useless.  Are there some super-bright replacement bulbs that will fit in the OEM sockets?  And if not, any other suggestions?

Are the bulbs in good condition?  Bulbs can deteriorate over time with the glass globes becoming brownish and inhibiting light.

You could add one or more additional backup light units - perhaps attached to the bumper cover.  Google "backup lights" and you should find aftermarket units.

The attached photo shows rear fog lights that I installed on two vehicles.  The same seller on eBay Germany has backup lights that look identical.  I had to fabricate "L" brackets to install them.  You would have to tap into the backup light circuit on your RX.
