Starting around 2004 Lexus, Toyota, Honda, and other manufacturers switched from interior bulb lighting to LED. The idea was that LED lasted longer than simple bulbs that you could twist out and replace.
Unfortunately we are starting to see complex LED failures in many interior switches, knobs, and indicator panels. The solution is fine circuit board work, soldering, desoldering, and replacing many microscopic LED’s.
Aside from our repair service for automotive interior lighting, the only solution is to purchase a brand new switch from the dealer. These can run up to $250 or more per switch.
The last photo is from a customers car after lighting repair was complete.
We can repair all of the switch lighting inside Lexus LS460 models from 2007 to 2012. Common part numbers and switches are listed here:
control assy integration rear sun shades
air suspension switch
push start switch
Our repair service solves this problem and restores your lighting to a bright white illumination. We can install other colors too! Our repair covers a “cluster” of switches in the same area similar to the picture. The climate control, navigation buttons, and steering wheel buttons are also common areas that tend to fail in Toyota and Lexus vehicles. Each assembly needing repair is a separate charge. Please select the items needing repair for accurate cost. We replace all of the LED’s so the color matches. The replacement LED’s will NOT match the rest of the your components because of several factors.
1) The manufacturer likely had specific, custom shades created for their interior. No aftermarket or replacement lighting will ever match the same tone or shade.
2) After 10+ years the original color has faded
