Could you take the dust cover off the back of the headlight? Take a pix I just wanna see the plug harness just to truly verify it's a hid in there.

Here are some quick pictures I was able to take.

I made sure my AFS ecu was plugged IN, basically the opposite of this thread:

I then reset it by pulling the fuses. still no luck. One bulb being out shouldn't mess with the afs system, should it?

for 2008 the sport package was called the "X-Package" and came with a stiffer suspension, illuminated scuff plates, pedal covers and darker colored solid(not split spoke) 5 spoke wheels, my 08 came with the package and was listed on the window sticker. Here's the list of everything that came with X-Package http://www.automobilemag.com/am/2008...s_options.html

Sorry for taking the focus away from the AFS...

X-Package and Sport Package were 2 different things. Both were offered in 2008.

Jeff

EDIT: X-Package and Sport Packages from Lexus USA in 2008:

X-Package without moonroof $894
Available with the following exterior colors:
- Tungsten Pearl
- Smoky Granite Mica
- Obsidian
Sport-tuned suspension
Aluminum sport pedals
Illuminated doorsill scuff plates
Aerodynamic front air dam
Exclusive 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels

X-Package $1,394
Available with the following exterior colors:
- Tungsten Pearl
- Smoky Granite Mica
- Obsidian
Sport-tuned suspension
Aluminum sport pedals
Illuminated doorsill scuff plates
Aerodynamic front air dam
Exclusive 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels

Sport Package $3,805
Perforated leather-trimmed interior
Power tilt-and-telescopic steering column

EDIT 2: These were from the "IS350" section of the Lexus USA website. I'm 90% sure the IS250 packages were the same, but perhaps not.

Speaking of those lists I posted, and as Kurtz has said in the past, despite Lexus listing the illuminated door sills, they did NOT come with the car. They are easily added though.

I know for sure I have the sport package.

I just dont have the option to turn off AFS in the menu which is very odd. I also don't notice it auto leveling on start up. There seems to be some kind of disconnect. I guess no one else has experienced this?

There is definitely an issue with the AFS ECU and/or wiring and/or power to it. If the ECU is not working/connected, the rest of the car assumes you have no AFS, which is why there is no light on, and why the AFS is not appearing in the menu. You need to find out why the AFS ECU is not communicating with the rest of the car, whether it is due to no power (fuse or broken wire), or no connection to the rest of the car (bad ECU or broken/damaged wiring).

The car clearly has the components, they just aren't functioning.

Potential solution:

I went as far as messaging the OP to find out if he/she ever fixed this problem as I am having the same exact thing. Here's the thing - my scenario is not a matter of "pretty sure" but it is a for sure. I've seen the headlights move up and down and side to side before, as well I've seen the AFS in the menu before but now it's gone.

Recently I was doing a parasitic drain test on my batter (another thread) which involved removing each fuse one at a time and checking if the draw on the batter was changing. When I had removed the fuse for AFS and put it back in, I happen to put it back into the wrong empty slot right beside it. This did not trigger an AFS light to turn on or flash on the dash board. This made the AFS option not to show up even on the menu that allows me to control it. This also disabled the AFS system as well as the levelling system. Once I stuck the fuse into the right place, all is well and working.

Just wanted to post this up in case anyone else is having this same issue - check the fuse is not blow and it is in the right location. Hope this helps someone some day.
