Question about 2007 Lexus GS430

2 Answers

I have a 2006 Lexus gs 430. THe driver's side

I have a 2006 Lexus gs 430. THe driver's side headlight is ''stuck'' at the full 15 degree setting. Is there a manuel reset to bring to straight ahead position? The right side headlight remains focused straight a head. Also, where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter. I dont have an owners manuel so I opened the fuse box in side the engine comparment but didnt see a separate fuse for the lighter.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I may not have expressed the headlight problem though. The low beam is rotated all the way to the left, it is part of the adaptive headlight system. It appears to be some sort of shroud that pivits when turning to the left or right. From what I can find out, the left rotates to a maximun of 15 degrees and the right headlight will go to a max of 5 degrees on a right hand turn.

I can't guess at why the head light may be stuck, you may be able to try to push it a little and see if it goes to the right position. If you don't have the manual, I suggest buying a Haynes manual (about $20 from pepboys). It shows you all the wiring diagrams and fuses in the car, and how to fix things like the headlight

Most likely the adjusting actuator is bad and you can manual adjust the light from behind the headlight assembly with a screw driver. but i would suggest getting it looked at first. but if you want to bring down the low beam it will need to be turned counter clockwise. do this with the lights on and facing a wall to see the adjustment as you do it. the screws are plastic and there are two of them behind the low and high beam lights.

on the fuse for the lighter it will be inside fuse block and be labeled cig. it is a 15 amp fuse witch is blue.

let me know if you have more question i will be glad to help. good luck

    yes i know the system. from what i have seen the actuators some time go bad and the actuator is what makes it turn back and forth. if you want before you have it serviced you can try to remove the actuator and straighten the light out but don't know if it will stay in the position you leave it in. i can help you figure out if it is the actuator or the control module if you have a multimeter and some basic electrical skills. do you want to do that?

Your throttle position sensor might be stuck on the wide open throttle setting!

Do you have any check engine codes? Is the check engine light on?

It might not be if the TPS is still in the normal range...but is just sticking open.

Take a flashlight and look again under the dash.near where the plastic trim ends at knee level , drivers side I think on your car. If you have just had your tires changed or rotated your sensors themselves may need to be reprogrammed
