Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Recommended Posts

I have a couple of little niggles with the LS400 that ive decided to sort out, can anyone advise me:

1) the rear courtesy/map lights on the c-pillars have never worked - but the ones next to the switch above the doors both work fine.

I've always presumed the pillar map lights should come on with the map light switch, or the door switch on opening - (ie in tandem with the map lights above door) - am i correct?

If so i presume I have either a wiring problem or two blown bulbs?

2) headlight washers have never worked - cant hear any pump/motor noise so presume pump is kapput or wiring problem or fuse gone? Is the pump under near side headlight? where do i find fuse ?

any help appreciated!

many thanks

i'll throw some piccies up when it stops raining Keith!

mechanically she's excellent, (apart from the above 2 little issues) - in amongst the service history is a garage bill from 2011 for major service and cambelt change - £1200 !!!!

cosmetically she's just beginning to show here age, so once i get the 2 niggles sorted i'll be moving on to the interior and exterior to try and bring her back to glory.

done 200 odd miles in her since yesterday, and averaged 29 mpg, which is the same as my mrs ford streetka !

You sound like you might know where the fuse would be for the incar phone as my cradle has suddenly stopped working, I have checked inside the engine bay fuse box but no luck there. Mike

Headlight washer pump is attached to the same container as the windscreen washers and located behind the nearside wheelarch liner more or less underneath where the Battery sits, the liner extends right under the bumper and is held by a combination of crosshead screws and 10mm bolts.

For the rear internal lights check the rear courtesy light switches.
