  1. Hello again everyone, Hope all is well. So I replaced the passenger side-view mirror motor, but the problem remains! The top row, most forward (to the front of the truck) red fuse “10” blows. After I replace the motor, I kept the switch in the center / neutral position and did not try to have the mirrors auto-dip while in reverse, but when I went to electrically adjust the front driver’s side-view mirror, the fuse blew and the slew of dashboard warning lights lit. I thought the problem was emanating from the front passenger mirror, as its auto-dip functionality was not working smoothly in recent time, as it’d skip / hop, shutter on its way down. Nevertheless, I guess this has been narrowed down to the mirror(s) being the problem. What am I to do at this time? Can someone please assist and tell me if this means I should replace the driver’s side-view mirror motor now, or can is be something else altogether? I’d rather not buy the driver’s side-view mirror, only for the problem to remain. Argh. :( Please advise at your earliest. Thank you very much. My best.
  2. Just wanted to check in on this. Should anyone be able to assist please do advise. Thank you so very much. My best.

  4. Thank you for the heads up on the TSB. I've seen it, but it's not what I was having difficulty with. Thank you though!

  6. I replaced the fuse again and made sure the mirror switch was in the center / neutral position. The instrument cluster lights cleared and the door locks work again now. Since these items work after stopping the mirrors from dipping automatically, I think I’ve narrowed it down to the mirror dip as the cause of the fuse blowing. Can someone please assist from here; what should I do next? If the mirror motor is the problem, how can I replace same myself? Any good instructions / videos to do so? Thank you again.

  8. What a pain it was to access the passenger side foot well fuse box! Was also difficult to pull the fuse as well. Argh. Nevertheless, the fuse was blown. I replaced the blown fuse, truck started up properly, but shortly after starting… Lights on cluster resurface, mirrors stopped while dipping, auto door locks stopped working. Can someone please advise how I can figure out what the culprit is that’s blowing the fuse? How am I to trace this back to the source of the problem? Any / all help would be greatly appreciated. My best.

  10. Hello everyone, Long time; hope all is well with you and yours. Kindly review the photo attached. When I started my truck today, the error lights lit. The instrument cluster gauges also shuttered / twitched a bit, then went steady; never saw this before! Furthermore, the passenger side view mirror wouldn’t dip down in reverse. AND… upon coming to a stop, shutting down and looking truck from the outside, all doors wouldn’t lock! I had to lock each door individually (note, however, that the power door lock button works if the truck is turned on!). Been raining a lot; hopefully not related to the problem? :( Can someone please help me figure this out. Thank you very much. My best.

  12. I received the parts today and unfortunately, the hydraulic lines are black and hose like (actually 50% flexible, 50% rigid). When the indy threw my car upon the lift, what he pointed out to me was silver / metallic and larger in diameter, and seems completely rigid. Is there is difference between the air suspension hydraulic lines on a 2004 LX and a 2006/7 LC? Can someone please shed some light on this? Can really use some help here.
  13. Can someone please confirm whether or not the 2006/2007 Land Cruiser AHC setup is the same as the 2004 LX setup? In other words, would the LC part numbers I provided above be a direct fit / replacement on my LX? I hope so, as I believe the lines are hard metal, which are not flexible. :| Shocks the same as well? Thank you again.
  14. I found these part numbers: 48530-69145 49164-60041 49163-60041 Do the hydraulic lines that run front to back on either side of the truck come in sections? Anyone know if the numbers above are the whole line, or only a part of the line? Thank you.
  15. Hi everyone, Hope all is well. 2004 LX470 with 200k here, which I want to keep. Active Height Control (AHC) system went yesterday. Rear axle on bump stops. Drove to indy, which stated the left and right hydraulic lines are rusted and I’d likely need both rear shocks as well, due to likely rust at the top mounting points (?). Quoted me $1,700, $1,250 for parts, $450 for labor. I’m told the parts would be OEM Lexus. How does this pricing sounds; high, low? Can someone please help provide me with the part numbers I'd need? I’d like to call dealers and search online for better pricing. ALSO, is there some Land Cruiser 100 Series model year that has AHC, or do all have conventional suspensions? As some of you may recall, my front steering rack was leaking, indy stated I must use Lexus parts, but I went ahead with an OEM Land Cruiser rack, which worked just fine. Please advise at your earliest as down a car. Thank you!
