I was changing the low beam headlight on the driver side which is a bit awkward to get to. It probably would have been easier if I had completely removed the filter housing but I didn't. Anyway, got the old bulb out, put a new bulb in and just loosely put it through the hole. I switched the lights on at this point to test that everything was working and it was fine. Now I should have put the lights off but I didn't, instead I went in to rotate the bulb to lock it in place. It fell out slightly, the glass of the bulb shattered and there was a bit of a bang. I put another bulb in and tested it but it didn't work. I tested with a second bulb and it didn't work. Turns out there is no voltage at the connector, I assume there was a short when the bulb smashed and it has blown a fuse.
My Lexus is a IS220D 57 plate and has the type A engine compartment fuse box. According to this the left and right headlights are on the same 30A fuse, but my passenger side light is working fine. Is there another fuse somewhere that just controls the driver side? I wouldn't have thought there would be two fuses in line. Any other ideas?
Any help much appreciated as I can't seem to find anything online.
Happy new year all,
Just joined as I'm finally glad to become an owner of a 2014 NX300h Premier, so happy with the car!
The first thing I plan to do is hardwire a dash cam. I've found the fusebox in the passenger side footwell, but I don't seem to be able to find a detailed description of all the fuses anywhere. There are some fuses which seem to feed a variety of circuits, and some fuses seem specific to certain function in the car. Does anyone have a clue, for example, what the "ECU-IG NO.1-5" fuses actually feed?
Also, has anyone found a grounding point/screw near their fusebox? I saw a screw near the fusebox but its screwed into black plastic and I'm not sure if it is actually grounded. I don't have a multimeter either, so before I buy one I thought I'd see if anyone here knows for sure.
I blew the ign and inj fuses whilst jump starting the car. I replaced the fuses and it starts fine but the steering column does not move into its set position when I put the ignition key in and the steering is heavy. The dashboard warning lights do not flash up when the ignition key is turned. I think another fuse must have blown but I checked all the fuses in the boot, drivers side and under the bonnet. Can anyone help to identify what component has failed!
I hope you can help.
Wife's Lexus had a flat so in my wisdom, I decided to jump it using my Mercedes. Stupidly, the Mercedes dealer at some point placed the red Battery cap on the negative terminal and the black on the positive. Not double checking, I inadvertently connected the terminals incorrectly and well.... you can guess the rest.
I checked the fuses under the bonnet... The fusible link was broken (it looked like 19 - Alternator 150amp). The car still started but the dashboard was lit up like a Christmas tree and the car was in limp mode. The central locking didn't work nor did the electric seats (I didn't test everything at this point).
Lexus wanted £130 for the fuse but then I found one for £30 off ebay. I replaced this yesterday and there was certainly some improvements. Car started but only the engine management light and VSC was on. Car is still in severe limp mode (barely revving). However, central locking and electric seats now working.
I have checked every single fuse under the bonnet (1 x box next to the Battery) and the 2 fuse boxes beneath and either side of the dashboard. I haven't checked the relays yet as I need a multimeter but can't see how Noise Filter, Defog, GLW RLY2 (Fan no3 Diesel), Head LP, GLW RLY1 (Fan no1 Diesel) or Starter could be causing this.
Can anyone assist further in helping me diagnose and hopefully resolve.
Many thanks :)
