Discharge headlights

If voltage to the discharge bulbs is insufficient, the bulbs may not come on, or may
go out temporarily. The discharge bulbs will come on when normal power is restored.

LED light bulbs

The parking lights, side turn signal lights, high mounted stoplight and license plate
lights consist of a number of LEDs. If any of the LEDs burn out, take your vehicle to
your Lexus dealer to have the light replaced.

CAUTION:
Replacing light bulbs
- Turn off the headlights. Do not attempt to replace the bulb immediately after turning
off the headlights.

The bulbs become very hot and may cause burns.

- Do not touch the glass portion of the light bulb with bare hands. Hold the bulb by
the plastic or metal portion.

If the bulb is scratched or dropped it may blow out or crack.

- Fully install light bulbs and any parts used to secure them. Failing to do so may
result in heat damage, fire, or water entering the headlight unit. This may damage
the headlights or cause condensation to build up on the lens.

- Do not attempt to take apart or repair the low beam headlight bulbs, connectors,
power supply circuits, or related components.

Doing so could result in electric shock and serious injury or death.

Discharge headlights
- Contact your Lexus dealer before replacing discharge headlights (including light
bulbs).

- Do not touch the high-intensity discharge headlight’s high voltage socket when the headlights are turned on.

An extremely high voltage of 20000 V will be discharged and could result in serious injury or death by electric shock.

To prevent damage or fire Make sure bulbs are fully seated and locked.
