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 bought a toyota vista ardeo with shiftmatic on the steering wheel and I dont know how to use it.kindly help.


Hi, i have the same kind of Ardeo and this is how the steer matic shift works.
Stop vehicle and shift gear lever to DRIVE position then press on the steermatic shift button and M will high light above the top of the semi auto shift high lighter to show that you are in the steering wheel gear shift manual mode.At this point you can use the down shift buttons on the front part of the steering and the up shift buttons on rhe rear side of the steering.the down shifted or up shifted gear will high light on the dash.if you want to boot back to semi or automatic drive press steermatic button again.ENJOY YOUR DRIVE

1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock


if the shifter is loose and sloppy feeling then the shift cable bracket has come loose under the dash at the steering wheel. remove the lower panel under the steering wheel so you can see under the dash then get flash light and look while jiggling the shifter. you should be able to see the cable and bracket. if the bracket is loose then tighten the bolts. note this bracket is at the steering colum.
