why 1991 Lexus ls400 dash light goes off when headlights go on?
My 1991lexus ls400 dash lights turn off when I turn my headlights on. When I turn off the
headlights, my dash lights go back on. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Its the cluster panel. Need to replace.
I have a '91 Lexus LS 400. When I turn on the headlights, the transmission drops into low range. I logged onto ASK HOW and talked to a 27 year Lexus Electrical Mechanic. She said the lighting circuits are wired through the transmission backup light circuit. She said I would have to replace the 2 complete taillight modules in the Trunk Lid. I removed both one at a time and had them bench tested. They both tested good. So, to fix my problem temporarily, I removed the bulbs from the taillight modules in the Trunk Lid only and it fixed the problem. When I get time I am going to rewire that circuit. Hope this helps.
