Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

Ok so I just recently got a 93 ls400 and the guy I got it from said the head lights won't come on.. (he's a master electricain) he told me he tinkered with it a little and could not figure it out. I looked at the fuses under the dash and all seem to be good... and ideas?? And u shook the relay under the hood and didn't hear a clicking noise so I would assume that they were ok. And the running lights do come on just not the head lights

Did you check the bulbs?

There is more than one fuse block in that car, under hood, under dash, and I think one in the trunk.

One fuse for each head light, including the high beams. If the high beams don't work I would suspect the switch.

Bets bet is to use a Test Light of Volt Meter to check for power at the headlights, and then chase the wires back until you find power, if you find power at the switch, but not after......... you have a bad switch.

The connections inside of the headlight switch could be bad. It happened to me after work one day. Although my brights would still come on if I held the switch. If you pull the plug off the switch and jump from power to the headlight prong and they work it's definitely the switch.

SOURCE: window stop working

the clicking u can hear is the relay for the window clicking, so i would say thats working, but u can also check with a multi meter, could also be the motor for the window, check all your fuses as it could be that also if its blown a fuse there is ur answer. and clean the window switch.

SOURCE: 1999 caravan under dash relay clicking

You may want to try pulling connections off BCM (body control module) and cleaning them with contact spray cleaner or similar & re-installing. Sometimes you'll get lucky & this will cure it, without replacing BCM.70846a5.gif

SOURCE: STARTER WONT ENGAGE ONLY CLICKS UNDER HOOD STATER

If the clicking sound is coming from the engine bay, from the relay, you may want to have the starter itself checked out. You need to check if the ground cable from the engine to the chassis is secured. If that is OK, you may want to have the starter motor checked.

2003 F-150 4x4..getting brake fade at stop signput in new master-power bled system-new pads-calipers ok-rotors fine-no leaks?? Could it be abs pump&module? No abs light on...help!


I was told by a dealership that the pedal fade is normal. GM products do it too. Replaced the master cylinder on a '93 GMC pickup owned by company owners son because of the pedal fade. The was told it's normal because the new one did the same. I still have that master cylinder in a box in the archives, because apparently it's still good. Ask the mechanics at a dealership about this situation and how you've changed things to no avail and see what they tell you. Good day.

I have 93 Lexus Ls400 when I hit the gas it makes a screaching sound as thou it needs a belt.Someone told me that it could be the buschings in the alternator. What could be my problem?


first look at belt if loose worn cracked glazed or just plain old and worn out change because a bad belt makes noise when slipping on pulleys ------if belt is good than look at belt tensioner ---- and pulleys to all components ---and listen to the area when vehicle running for grinding or squeal

Lexus 93 ls400 remote not working for driver's door


if all other doors work the door lock actuator needs replaced most likely. if door switch works the same. if not then it could be a bigger problem in the circuit or remote control module. use a meter to test for signal to lock actuator. if no signal then ck control unit. if signal replace lock actuator.

My 93 Lexus LS400 wont make a sound at start


Since work was recently done to the vehicle I would look to see if any connections were left unplugged or inadvertantly knocked loose. Make sure to check the battery terminals and cables to ensure tightness and a solid connection.
