I made sure not to mess with the damn thing during the install, but when I was pushing the arm down to install the shock/spring it somehow bent in the "Z" position. It took all bout 5 mins to flip that bad boy around the correct way "L" and problem solved! No more damn warning light!

Thanks JoeZ you da man!

BUT......



Agreed.... So it's easier than pulling the small plug/harness out of the AFS ECU....

Still NOT the solution I'm looking for... Looks like black tape inside the cluster led is going to prevail on this one..

Now I'm confused... So the problem cannot be solved?

I'm still thinking of where to get my 2011 light installed on my 09 isf... it looks too complicated for me ...sigh...

I ended up plugging the AFS computer back in and pulling just the fuse. After a while I decided, like Joe, that I liked my auto leveling feature. There is no easy way to really stop the flashing only work arounds. I searched and found a thread on how to remove the instrument cluster and take the left side apart. After I got it off I just cut a small piece of black electrical tape to cover the light. Again it took some searching but the thread is out there to guide you step by step. Good luck.

yes the problem can be solve but with only those 2 options so far. either use black tape to cover it or pull the fuse. its really an easy job if u have a dremel tool to cut some of the brackets off and probably the hardest part is getting the ballast out and reusing it. its a bit tricky but there is a youtube video that shows you how.

Hey Joe I saw you have quite a bit knowledge on the headlight upgrade for the Lexus ISF. I purchased the lexus upgrade lights from ebay that were prewired a while back, and I pulled the plug on the afs so the light would stop blinking, but the issue I'm having is every time I make a right turn my right headlamp goes out. Once I turn my head lights completely out and back on the light turns back on, but as soon as I make another tight turn the light goes out again. Do you have any idea what that could be or if there is a remedy? Thanks so much in advance it means a lot.

Joe
