Lexus is300 headlamp adjustment

2001 IS300 w/HID headlamps. On the dash a light comes on and goes off showing headlamp auto adjust. The lights barely light the road 20 feet in front of the vehicle. Can't see when driving at night w/o high beams. Is the an adjustment I can make? Thank You!

How do i adjust the head lights in or out on a 2004 dodge stratus---or can i?


If by in or out you mean make the beam pattern move closer or farther away from the vehicle, then yes you can. There are adjustment screws (usually 2) on each headlamp assembly. One raises and lowers the headlamp. This will move the beam closer to (down) or further from (up) the vehicle. The other will adjust the beam from left to right. The screw at the top (or bottom) is for the vertical and the screw on the side is for horizontal. The easiest way to adjust the headlamps correctly is to, at night, go to a location where you can park about 50 feet away from a blank wall. Turn on the low beam headlamps. In order to "properly" adjust the lamps, the left side headlamp's main beam should cast is "ring" on the wall at about the centerline of the car (left-to-right adjustment), with the bottom of the beam just reaching the ground (vertical adjustment). The right side headlamp should be adjusted to shine along the right edge of the vehicle (where the white edge line would be) at the 50 foot mark (left-to-right) and the height should be the same as the left headlamp - beam just touching the ground. Many people make the mistake of pointing them straight down the road. This causes "overspray" into the oncoming lanes and blinds oncoming motorists. I'm sure you've experienced the annoyance of someone coming toward you with their lights right in your eyes. That is caused by misadjustment. If you get the low means right, the high beams will work well for approximately 200-300 feet down the road, which, unless you are night racing, is more than enough distance to see well to drive.

HID Headlamp flickers and then shuts off withing a few seconds after coming on.


Sounds like the head light is defective or the driver for the light. Normally both are replaced.

Head light goes off and comes back on I had a mechanic look at it but he couldn't find anything.Can you help?


When HID headlamps start doing that, it is usually time to replace the HID unit on whichever side is messing up. I hope you have lots of money, because Cadillac is very proud of their headlamp units!

I just installed the right head light on a 2000 f250. I'm trying to find the specifications on distance and height of the light beams, L &R when adjusting the lights.


Headlamp Adjustment —Screen Method Aiming NOTE: Horizontal aim is not necessary for this vehicle and is not adjustable.
NOTE: Consult your state's vehicle inspection manual for recommended tolerance ranges for visual aiming.
  1. NOTE: The sight shield may need to be positioned or removed for access to the adjusters.
    Before starting headlamp assembly adjustment:
    • Check the tire inflation.
    • Check that no other load is in the vehicle other than a half tank of gas.
    • Check that the headlamps are clean.
    • Check for correct headlamp operation.
    • Check that the vehicle is on level ground.
    • If the vehicle is equipped with air suspension, make sure the switch is on.
    • NOTE: The vertical wall or screen must be a minimum of 2.4 meters (8 feet) wide.
  2. Park the vehicle on a level surface approximately 7.6 meters (25 feet) from the vertical wall or screen directly in front of it.
  3. e4d4fd8.gif
    NOTE: The center of the lamp is marked by a 3 mm (0.12 in) circle on the headlamp lens.
    Mark a horizontal reference line on the vertical wall or screen.
    1. Measure the center of the headlamp height to ground and record.
    1. Make a 2.4 meters (8 feet) horizontal mark (masking tape) on the vertical wall or screen at the same distance from the ground as previously recorded.

  1. NOTE: This procedure should be done in a dark environment to effectively see the headlamp beam pattern.
    Turn on the low beam headlamps to illuminate the wall or screen and open the hood.
  1. NOTE: The appearance of the beam pattern may vary between vehicles.
    On the wall or screen, locate the high intensity area of the beam pattern.

7ced4e6.gif NOTE: The appearance of the beam pattern may vary between vehicles.
Identify at the top edge of this high intensity area a distinct horizontal cutoff in the beam pattern. If the top edge of this cutoff is not even with the horizontal reference line, the headlamp beam will need to be adjusted.
