■After a fuse is replaced

■If there is an overload in a circuit The fuses are designed to blow, protecting the wiring harness from damage.

■When replacing light bulbs Lexus recommends that you use genuine Lexus products designed for this vehicle.

Because certain bulbs are connected to circuits designed to prevent overload, non-genuine parts or parts not designed for this vehicle may be unusable.
