Question about Lexus LS 400

1 Answer

I have a 1998 lesus ls400, when i turn off the car and remove the key, the engine shuts off however the dash lights, headlights stay on and the steering wheel does not return to the off position. I disconnected the battery then reconnected and everything worked as it should for about 20 seconds, then returned to not working. the electrical system thinks that the car is still running.

Sounds like you need to change your ignition switch. This happen when there are too many objects on your key chain.

SOURCE: with the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off

hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck

SOURCE: 88 cadillac deville, ac blower fan wont shut off,

Ralph,
Most common cause of this is the blower fan (proper name for the fan you refer to) continuing to run is a shorted out Electronic Climate Control Module. This solid state device replaces the older style fan speed resistor block (at about 4 times the price) This unit is found on the top of the HVAC box under the hood. (HVAC means heating, ventilation and air conditioning) The HVAC box is found on the passenger side of the firewall. Look behind the A/C's accumulator. It will have an electrical wiring plug on top of it. It will be fastened to the HVAC box with a few 7mm hex head screws. Very easy to change.
FYI, do yourself a favor and replace the blower fan motor at the same time. The Electronic Climate Control Module usually fails because the motor is drawing to many amps of current. This is because it's bushings are worn out or the brushes are worn out.
This is very common on Cadillacs and Buicks.
Charlie
PS Not sure why car won't start. Either you drained the battery or blew a fuse which controls starting the engine. Need more info regarding the "no start" condition.

My 2000 cavalier has done this for 6 months. You take your key out then open your door, wait ten minutes and the system resets itself and the car will start-annoying you bet!!!

Headlights stay on too long after engine is off


been working on the same issue for a week. fixed it last night after research and trouble shooting. The head lights are controlled by the head light dial/knob on your dash on the left side of your steering wheel. With the knob pushed in, if you shut down your car, the lights should automatically shut off as well. Mine didnt so what I did was i turned off my car, disconnected the positive battery terminal located inside a fist sized red box on the right side of your engine. Then I took off the dash panels to get to the actual connection on the headlight switch/dial/knob. I disconnected it and put it all back together. It fixed the problem.It worked for me, maybe theres an easier or faster way of fixing it but this worked. Good luck.

1998 VW Jetta GL . When I Put My Hand Break Down , Brake Light On Dashboard Doesnt Come Off Completly , In That Case HeadLights Wont Come On When HeadLight Swtich Is On .


the emergency brake needs adjusting. the cover around the e-brake should be removed, and behind the e-brake arm should be a cable and tighten the nut on the end of the cable until the slack is removed from the cable. turn nut, then turn key to accessory, then release e-brake , see if the brake light goes off, if not turn off ignition, tighten e-brake nut again, turn key back to accessory release e-brake, see if light goes off. do this until you see e-brake light on dash go out. headlights should come on.

It has something to do with the climate control. You have to have a technician repair it. ebay has many of those repair guys for mad cheap. I did my L of of ebay. They have ways of removing dash and climate control off of google. Just engine search it. Look for people that fix Dash and Climate control. If that does not work then it is a LD problem and probably need a new Radio.
