Default AFS OFF flashing

My 2008 LS460 AFS light is flashing and telling me to take to dealer.
Is there any fix for this?
Thanks

If there is a warning then there is probably a problem with the system. If it just says AFS off then try to make sure that the switch wasn't pressed by accident . I did that the other day.

dude, go to your fuse panel and take out your AFS fuse and that will eliminate that light. I find the damn AFS USELESS anyhow. I dont need them to swivel or anything like that. It is pointless.

Welcome to Club Lexus!

I would start with checking the fix in post #5 -

Here you go, just scroll down -

Oops, the directions are for a different model, but the explanation is the same. On my '07 the AFS button is to the left of the steering wheel, below the mirror adjustment toggle button.

Thanks, Spin!

AFS (Adaptive Front-lighting System) (if equipped)
AFS (Adaptive Front-lighting System) secures excellent visibility at intersections
and on curves by automatically adjusting the direction of the light axis of the headlights according to vehicle speed and the degree of the tire’s angle as controlled by steering input.
AFS operates at speeds of 6 mph (10 km/h) or higher.
