Warning Light--indicating a light is out--won't go out

Asked by Jan 28, 2017 at 02:57 PM about the 2002 Lexus RX 300 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've replaced every bulb that was out--including a couple of sockets--but the
warning light stays on.

2 Answers


The system senses ohms on the lighting circuits, so if the ohms are off it will turn on the warning light, sometimes even using the wrong wattage bulbs can trigger the light, this is assuming that you have already checked and repaired the grounds, and power circuits.

Thanks. I haven't gotten that far yet... and may be getting a bit out of my league. I did replace the bulbs with those recommended.
