Hmm... when I pulled apart my dash to install the iPod adapter I had a similar thing happen. To be honest... first thing I'd do is give the switches a bit of a love tap. Sometimes that'll "wake up" the light. If that doesn't do anything... just check out all the connections for the switch/bulb and make sure they're connected. To be honest... if the bulbs were working before... it's probably just something loose.

If not... then just replace the bulbs. There are little bulbs inside the switches.

As for the ECT/SNOW switch issue there's a little bulb in there as well that can be replaced. The switch pushes upwards from underneath the transmission gate trim.

When I did my NAVI install, the TRAC button and DRIVERS heated seat light stopped working. I guess they're pretty fragile bulbs. But those ones only took 5 mins to re-install as pulling off that panel is a piece of cake. Its when your HVAC lights go out..........dang that's a pain.

They are little LEDs that Lexus will sell you at like $8 a pop!!!

i can get the harness locally from one of my wholesalers. it's definitely more pricey than anywhere in the states but it is local. pm me for more details.

Do you have any ideas for what you want in a deck? I really hope you're going Double DIN! Maybe NAV included? What's your budget?

Some quick comments...

the parts for the gas tank cover can be replaced...

the headlight washers sometimes don't fire when there's not enough fluid.

I notice that if I fire the headlight washers a lot... they'll eventually stop spraying... even tho there's still fluid to clean the windshield. However... once I refill the washerfluid reservoir... the headlight washers work again.
