Question about 2005 Lexus Ls 430

1 Answer

Car won't start after using Auto headlights on 2005 Lexus LS430

I make sure that all lights are off when locking car-however if the auto headlights switch is left on-the battery will be dead. My old LS 400 never had this problem
The 2005 has only 31000 miles and I purchased the car 1 month ago. It looks like a new battery.

Also the auto-trunk lifters don't seem to be working. I have to manually pull open the trunk once I release it. Isn't it supposed to slowly open/close itself?

The trunk should auto close when you manually lower the lid to the almost closed position, but it is NOT designed to open up fully when you hit the trunk release on the key fob, nor when you open the trunk manually using the touch sensitive button under the lip of the trunk.

You must have the dealer scan the system with a special tool to see what is causing this unwanted activation of the vehicle stability control system.

Check your gas cap, it may not be sealing properly that's why your getting the VSC light on the dashboard. Eventualy the light will go out after you fix. Good luck.

Headlight level warning


check your height sensor on your suspension. theres 4 sensors that look at ride height for the headlights to adjust when going up and down hills. you may have bent one when working on the car.

How do I adjust headlights on 2005 lexus LS430


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

Is the "certified" distinction for an '05 LS430 worth the extra $


I say a factory warranty is always worth the money, but read the fine print.

I have LS430 2001 yesterday it stoped suddenly the battery was dead, but i recharge it. then when i start the car it start, but when i remove the ground wire from the battery the car turns off.


This is NOT a VALID test of the charging system on these newer vehicles if that's what you were trying to do. As a matter of fact by doing that with engine running you run a risk of damaging the computer on this vehicle or blowing battery main fuses. DON'T DO THIS!!. Here is my suggestion to check everything out battery and alternator and starter. Take vehicle to an Auto Zone ,THEY CHECK CHARGING SYSTEMS FOR FREE. Have them check the battery alternator and if possible a starter draw test. Good Luck contact me if you need more info.
