I recently replaced the tail light because the bulb was bad. It now works great but the dash indicator light that tells you something is wrong with the tail lights stays lit. Do I have to reset it somehow?

Gauge needles used to illuminate. Can I replace a bulb to get them working again? If so how do I? They used to illuminate red, can I change it to blue?

I recently replaced the brake pads and the ABS light stays on on the dash. Do I have to reset it? How do I? The brake fluid is full.

driving fine, no problems, get in to go to the store, it won't fire up. The engine has no clicking sounds and the battery seems to be fine.

Our Lexus has 85k miles and my wife recently took it for an oil change and was told that the pads on the front & rear were low. It was recommended that we get them done and the estimate was a total of $300 for front & back. We normally trust the service shop we go to but when we realized that the wheels have lug locks and were never removed. Which made us wonder if the "recommendation" was truthful or just an attempt to drum up business during the slow season. We also have not detected any braking problems or squeals. But on the same token we've had no brake work done.



When I drive and hit the accelerator the VSC and ABS lights come on. The VSC light blinks and the ABS light stays on. Every time I turn the car off the lights shut off. I went to get a diagnostic test but the lights were off so they couldn't do one. I have no idea whats going on. Any suggestions??

THERE IS A STRONG ROTTEN EGG SMELL COMING FROM CAR. Also my battery won't hold a charge, however, sometimes the car will just start and run fine for a couple months, then all of a sudden it won't and we have to jump start it. Could the smell be from the battery?

We have a 1998 ES300 with 110,000. Whenever it rains the back seat floors become soaked. The seats are not wet and there is no moisture around the inside of the sunroof. We are stumped and do not know where to begin to look for a solution

my drivers side door latch has broken inside door and window is jamming against it when I try to run window down how much will it cost to rplace or repair latch

My battery indicator light on my dashboard just started coming on, but so did the 'VSC', 'ABS', and 'VSC Off' indicator lights. The battery indicator goes away after a few seconds, but the other indicator lights stay on. When the battery indicator light comes on, it and the other indicator lights glow brightly, but when the battery indicator light goes off, the other indicator lights dim. This repeats while I'm driving or while the car is on. I did the obvious, replaced the battery, thinking that might be the problem, but no such luck, I still have the same indicator light(s) issue. I'm thinking I might have an internal regulator problem in my alternator, but not sure. Any guidance or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Dealer tells me that there is an oil leak and that I should replace / reseal the front timing cover. How critical is it to do this? How complicated is this repair? Can a regular, i.e., non-dealership do this? How much should it cost?

how can I gain access to tail lights, not the tail gait ones
