Default Headlights problem?

I get 2008 Lexus RX 350 recently. I just put new battery. The problem is:
when I turn on low beams or high beams the instrumental panel lights (dashboard) become off.
Only DRL running with instrumental panel lights on.
How can I fix the problem, any advise?

Welcome to Club Lexus, .

Have you tried adjusting the brightness for the instrument panel using the Instrument panel light control? See page 129.

Thumbs up Thanks for posting link to the PDF

Is there any way to say "thanks" in these forums other than saying it? I know many forums have different ways of doing this - marking correct answer, helpful, whatever.

But thanks to RX330inFL for posting the link. I just got my RX350 about 2 weeks ago, and have lots of learning to go... but I did figure out pretty quickly to use the dimmer **** for the instrument panel.

Okay, how do you get to the full manual / document referenced? I found another area I need to read more on - cruise control - b/c mine was broken when I bought it.

You can search the Owner's Manuals for all vehicles here:

https://secure.drivers.lexus.com/lex...nual-search.do

If you need a new Owner's Manual for your vehicle Lexus Customer Service will more than happily send you a new one.

You have the brightness turned all the way down. Turn the **** back up.

No problem. BTW, you should also take the time to register your new ride with Lexus here -- just have your VIN available:

https://secure.drivers.lexus.com/lexusdrivers/home

That will give you access to any past Lexus service information provided along with recall information. You can also order up the new Owner's Manual there as well. Either way you ask it is free of charge.

Awesome! Thanks again! I'll be sure to do that... hopefully this week, assuming I don't forget.

Sorry took so long to respond, by the way - hadn't been on here in a while.
