Question about 2000 Lexus ES 300

Gear shift panel does not light up

I bought this car used two months ago and it seems that the gear shift does not light up. All other dash lights seem to work. It's a 1999 Lexus ES00.

The car also has another issue... a squeaky steering wheel. It squeaks off and on when you turn the car more than 90 degrees, kind of sounds like Harry from "Harry and the Hendersons". I just tried some clear lubricant in the crack on top of the steering wheel casing, it may be helping a little.

Any ideas?

For the gear shift there should be a small bulb need to replace on most car replaceable. for you squeaking you need the clock spring this for your air bag you dont need to short out your airbag system

My car does not start after 3 months in the garage...the headlights and other light work, horn works, hazard lights work...but no electricity when i turn the key...the dash panels don't even light up.


First check the battery terminals. CLEAN THEM in and out
Otherwise
If you hear a click when you turn the key and the lights dim then it sat longer than 3 months.
If a stick shift you could get it loosened up by towing it in gear.
Use a breaker bar and pipe to turn the main crankshaft
Many other reasons

I have a Lexus RX300 1999 model and have this recent problem. engine running normally but gear gets stuck in Parking mode and won't shift. had to depress the emergency button on the gear shift and


Hi there,

Some automatic vehicles rely on the brake switch (mounted on brake pedal) to be activated by depressing brake pedal. This signal then operates a relay and switch, to release the gear lever.

Firstly, I would check the brake pedal switch (are your brake lights working?).

If brake switch is confirmed OK, then inspect the relay (and related circuit components) of the gear release switch.
