Issue with tail light on 2005 rx330

Post by genjix » Tue May 14, 2019 7:28 pm


Was hoping someone familiar with this can guide me. My rx330 2005 had a tail light go out (left outer). I went to check again today but this time the light was on and the other side (right lift gate tail light) was off. This leads me to believe that the bulb is good but there is some other issue. Would this be a fuse, circuit, something else?

Sometimes older filament based bulbs will get a break in the filament but vibration will “reconnect” them and they will work again. As a starting point, I’d try replacing both bulbs (this is an easy DIY) and see if you have future issues.

Realistically, this is the wrong forum for this.

Check out the Lexus or RX3xx forums. Should be a plethora of information there.
