Ect Snow Button Failure


Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of this button failing?

In the 18 months since getting the SE-L I've pushed this button about six times and until this morning an "ECT snow" indicator lit up on the dashboard and gear changes became muted but a lot smoother.

Any ideas what's up and why it's stopped today of all days?

Regards

Jay

p.s. When things break I often ask myself what's changed since the last time it worked? Well today it actually snowed...maybe that's it or maybe it's a Japanese psychological torture..the snow button won't work when it actually snows???

Take a look in the fusebox under the bonnet, there should be a fuse dedicated to the Lexus "Sod's Law" computer that's behind the passenger-side kick panel. Remove it.

Does the gearing still change (bulb gone) or does it ignore the switch completely (switch gone, or maybe something else)? In either case it should be covered by warranty.
