Hi,

 

So you can see the issue that's developing in the photo below. It's more obvious taken from above but you can see it still while sitting in the car. Is this common, has anybody had it repaired or is it a matter of finding a new unit?

 

Thanks.592f4aaaffc83dee98acc0d24e789bc0.jpg

Watched "wheeler dealers" episode when they had an ls 400 and apparently it's a common thing with this display. Ed China sourced an upgraded replacement part which doesn't fade. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6jlhfs&ved=2ahUKEwi_hvHzrvXjAhXySRUIHT-aBNUQwqsBMAB6BAgDEAU&usg=AOvVaw1Snxs1UpBkmO3E1xiGWBOf&cshid=1565339341830

Strange Mark, I was going to refer to Edd China`s work on the Display on the LS 400 too.

The OP can search YOUTUBE  to see if the show is there.

Very common on the early models, mine was the same when I bought it.

I eventually managed to find a replacement RHD version from a guy who made them in California as the majority are made for LHD models.

The link below gives the details of the guy although this was some years ago so may not be of any help, if he still has some make sure you specify for RHD.

If you do manage to get one I have fitted quite a few in the past for other members for some beer tokens.

Thank you! I have emailed him.

You can get one from these people. Pity RHD costs more than double LHD but c'est la vie !

If I had the Soldering skills of this Man or lived near Steve in Cheshire I'd buy a RHD to replace my non-existant display. However...

  • Club Hybrid Poll

  • 355 Hybrid Reliability

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
