Headlights grow dimmer by up to 20% over time and eventually burn out - for this reason, we recommend changing your headlights in pairs. Manually turning the headlights off and on gets them on again. I do not have a case open with the Lexus corporation but they are singing the same song as the dealer. Then I am left to drive in the dark. I've since heard other people complain about this same problem in this car. Again, a safety issue because now I need to readjust my mirrors while I'm driving.
Sometimes if I turn the lights off they may or may not come back on again. Just recently my wife told me her headlights were not shining as bright as they once were. Because the headlights are beaming too low towards the road, causing poor visibility when driving at night. To add to the matter. I replaced the Halogen bulbs and they are shining brighter but not as far out. In some Lexuss, the highbeam is the same bulb as the headlight and it is possible for the highbeam to work, but the headlight be burnt out even if they are the same bulb and vise versa. I took the car the dealer and instantly they start talking about what I needed to pay.
These bulbs have a very high voltage that runs through them, even if the battery is disconnected. I have appointment with Lexus to fix, but should be a recall safety item. My husband was able to manipulate the window to get it to stay up. While driving at an unknown speed, the headlights failed intermittently without warning. Then the problem starts again.
It's worse obviously outside cities, but also difficult even where there are street lights. This has been going on for about 6 months. We took the car back to the dealer, who said he turned the afs off and it would be ok. No warning no indication only that the road goes black. The problem occurs regardless of whether the headlight switch is in the on or auto position. The failure mileage was 112,000.
It seems like it is a know problem and Lexus does not want fix it!!! At times both low beam headlights flicker and shut off completely causing no vision at night. The dash indicator light shows the headlights are on. I contacted the dealership and they said I needed the headlamp replaced but once I did some research on this issue with the make and model of my vehicle I realized there are numerous of individuals having the same dangerous issue with having the headlamps replace the issue still remains the headlamps shut off completely inhibiting the view of the highway at night. It seems like it's an accident waiting to happen. Sometimes I'd drove the car into work and someone would say I have a headlight out and I'd take it to my mechanic which happened more than I can say and they would be fine, until the next time. It has happened four times.
After stopping and turning off the ignition, the lights come on again after restarting the engine. As a result, the mount was unable to track. He said the company did not allow them to adjust the headlights. I should not have to pay for manufactures defect. This makes you out drive your headlights constantly, like driving blind. The old one , when opened up 4 screws was full of rusty water. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic.
A few times, both lights turned off at the same time, so that I was completely in the dark and I had to pull over and stop the car. Now they both completely shut off when I'm driving. I googled to see iof there have been other reports of this problem and I was shocked to see so many. Sometimes when I drive at night, the lights will just go out. Take you car to a Lexus dealer.
The only way to get them on is to turn them off and on. This makes you out drive your headlights constantly, like driving blind. Above the line is what can only be described as a black wall. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. I can be driving at night, and the lights will just go out. Sometimes it's the left headlight and sometimes it's the right headlight and other times it's both headlights. Usually, I can immediately switch back to my low beam and they will come back on.
I turned them off and on quickly and they came back on. After inspecting the lights, they found the plastic mount was disintegrating. You can switch them on and off several time and they usually come back on but when they both went off at the same time at 70mph they restored a 8 times! Makes me afraid to drive after dusk. . The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure.
