Hey has any one had this problem. The map light i.e dome light by sunroof has gone out two times in three months and Lexus replaced the unit. They said they have had alot of cars with this problem. I had my other car for three years and the lights never went out. I'm afraid my cd changer is going to go out soon! i'm just curious :eek:

Almost all of the people i have heard with this problem with the map light bulbs are with the 02' models... and like you said Lexus definetley knows about it... but haven't heard of any recalls yet... it is most likely not the bulb... but the housing..

My map light went out at 7k miles and i dont wanna bring it to the dealer cus my warranty is shot and they are dicks over here, so they wont touch the map light housing to spite me for modding the intake/exhaust/header/ECU. Any way to change this yourself??

It's a light. Of course you can replace it yourself.

...just determine which light is the correct replacement and blammo.

I set my dome light to turn on when the doors are open but sometimes it does not turn on when the door opens. I think that this part of the car is cheaply made or just a bad design. I have only had the car for 2 1/2 months.
