NUMEROUS ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS ALL AT ONCE ON '96 LEXUS ES 300-136,000 MILES
INTERIOR LIGHT WILL NOT WORK WHEN DOOR IS OPEN-WILL COME ON MANUALLY BUT VERY DIM. MY INSTRUMENT PANEL IS INCREASING LOSING LIGHT SO THE INTERIOR IS VERY DARK AT NIGHT.
ANTENNA WILL NOT GO UP OR DOWN, THE MOTOR IS RUNNING BUT NOT OPERATING THE ANTENNA
MASTER KEY LOCK NOT OPERATING DOORS. SOMEONE MENTIONED INSIDE ONE OF THE DOORS THE SWITCH HAD POPPED. IS THAT A SIMPLE FIX?
REAR WINDOW ON DRIVERS SIDE WILL NOT OPERATE FROM DRIVERS CONTROL PAD, BUT WORKS FROM THE DOOR ITSELF .
IS IT WORTH TAKING MY CAR IN FOR AN OVERALL DIAGNOSIS OR JUST ACCEPT THESE MINOR FLAWS? I WORRY THAT THESE MALFUNCTIONS WILL LEAD TO ADDITIONAL ELECTRONIC FAILURES IF NOT CORRECTED. I LOVE MY CAR AND I LOVE EVEN MORE NOT HAVING A CAR NOTE. IT RUNS GREAT, STILL GETS GOOD GAS MILEAGE, AND BURNS VERY LITTLE OIL. I HOPE WITH SOME RECOMMENDATIONS AND TLC I CAN KEEP ON TRUCKIN FOR AWHILE.
Re: NUMEROUS ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS ALL AT ONCE ON '96 LEXUS...
My ES300 problem is that the battery runs flat over a period of about 2 weeks of remaining idle. I have had all the fuses out looking for a drain on the electrics but nothing is found. The battery is nearly new and passes all manufacturers tests. I have a charger continuously in use to fully charge the battery but when not connected the charge lasts about 2 weeks. Most frustrating. Do you have any suggestions Thanks, Maurice

Hi. If you find an answer to your problem with the trac off/engine light comming on way too often, please tell me so I can get my wifes 2001 es300 fixed. The dealer claims to have replaced the computer and numerous sensors on it's many trips back to the car lot. Once, it was kept for two months with the same problem comming back after 72 hours of regular use. I found, if you disconnect the battery for app. 20 seconds, then rehook it the lights on the dash go off for about 3 days. Help!!!
