The only way to adequately see pedestrians, etc. It light up lightly and then total black out. While the vehicle is designed with a good fit and finish, the components are not indestructible. I again take in it under warranty and they replace the light bulb. The manufacturer was not contacted. I have notice a slight flicked few months back but barely noticeable.
I commute 2 hours round trip everyday on the highway for work and my child's school, and it's dark in the morning when we leave home and dark in the evening on our way home. Driving around with one light on and one light off. I definitely cant afford to pay that right now and not to mention I already got a ticket for this. I still drove the car since new with the faulty headlights until this day. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. This is not your fathers headlamp system - it is equipped with tracking control and automatic headlamp leveling. Open the hood of your 2006 Lexus and locate the mounting screws on the top of the headlight assembly.
Surprised me, they don't know what is it. While driving approximately 45 mph with the headlights illuminated, the headlights began to illuminate off and on independently. What I have found out that if I turn the lights off and back on, they work. After googling the subject, I found that there are lots of other concerned Lexus owners complaining about the same problem. I turned the knob off and on and they restarted, but now continue to turn off intermittently. This is very very dangerous in a rural area where there are very little street lighting. I would recommend scanning the body control module for fault codes before doing anything else.
The contact stated that sporadically, the headlights would fail altogether. I have 2 kids, what if my kids are riding bikes or your kids and someone else doesn't see them due to poor headlights. I have had the bulbs replaced but the problem still persists. This has been going on for 6+ month. The leveling system on this vehicle clearly has a problem. The contact replaced the bulb, but the failure recurred.
I slammed on the brakes and steered towards the curb. We both love your website and while I haven't damaged anything since or needed any additional parts I will always visit your site 1st because I am confident that based on my experience with your customer service team and the pricing as well as shipping time and fantastic communication that I will always find the best deal when ordering from you. Trans solenoid dtc p0761 was detected on November 23, 2011 and April 9, 2012. After reviewing this site, it was nice to know that I am not the only one, but at the same time it is unsettling to see that so many other people are having the same problem. It's extremely dangerous, especially on fog days and rainy days like today. At first I thought I needed to replace the bulb.
My passenger side light went out. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast??????? Adding More Information If you would like to help the Modified Life community by adding any missing information or adding a new light bulb size information to our resource, please feel free to or post it at the bottom of this page. Make sure you align the tabs on the bulb with the notches in the back of the new assembly and turn the bulb clockwise to lock it into place. Use of the replacement bulb size information is at your own risk. Thanks to a winter frost heave and a tiny canvas carport I had the misfortune of accidentally breaking my side mirror when the car rolled over a bump in the driveway due to the tire positioning and the closer than close proximity of the poles holding up the carport wall.

Clearly there is an electrical issue here, some kind of short or something, especially when every single day I see other vehicles on the road, just like mine, having the same issue. Every Lexus form has every complaining about the headlights! The problem is, it becomes a serious safety issue when they go out, because most times I am completely unaware until someone on the road gets my attention and tells me, or I'm constantly turning my headlights off and on, which seems to be the temporary fix. I had over 15 cars and never have I seen this problem before. The contact aneuvered to the side of the road to confirm that the light was no longer illuminating. Knowing that my bulbs are not burnt out in that they are able to turn back on leads me to believe something is wrong electrically and shorting. My passenger side light went out. I thought the ballast burnt.
The problem with that though is I'm constantly flashing the car in front of me turning my lights of and on. I went out to get milk for kids around 8pm, I drove up to the a local store and turning into the parking lot, mind you my headlights only let me see only about 6 feet in front of the car. It is scary when both lights go off in the highway at night. Sometimes if I turn the lights off and back on, they work. My main concern is that I worry that both lights are off and other driver's cannot see me. Most of the time, it is the passenger side. The failure mileage was 43,000 and the current mileage was 91,000.
