Default HeadLight Leveling Sensors needed.Where do I buy besides Dealership?

hello, where and who selling "HeadLight Leveling Sensors"? its located in the rear axle. I was told by the dealership today that mine is faulty and not covered under warranty. (my warranty is up)......

where can I buy these HeadLight Leveling sensors since the dealership wants close to $400.00 for one.

There are two possibilities that come to mind...get the part number and check with your local toyota dealer... Obviously Lexus parts are made by toyota. Other than that, a salvage yard.

The link below has a thread regarding IS Headlight Leveling Senors... it may give you some ideas about how to tackle your problem. BTW what year is your SC? There are differences between some year models and removing the ECU .... some, like the 05 model requires disconnecting the negative battery terminal to prevent airbag and pretensioner activations

For example this is procedure for my 2002 model

that ebay link is NOT the right one.... what I need is a "senor" that goes on the back, on the rear trailing suspension arm, its suppose to Level the Headlights. the "Headlight Leveling warning light" will go ON in the dash if this sensor is out of place.

thanks for the ebay link though.

For that part your only options are the dealer and salvage.. It's not to difficult a job to replace them if you can find them. These three PDFs may help.

Default website?

anyone know a website of salvage SC430 Junkyards? or used Toyota/Lexus Parts..... I want to buy a HeadLight LeveL Sensor that goes in the rear suspension arms. I don't want to spend $300.00 plus on a very uncommon replacement..... thanks all.

my bad...I read your original post quickly and thought you were looking for the motors in the front. Now after reading all the later posts I see you need an ECU in the rear.

More on eBay after I refined my search:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Lamps...Q5fAccessories

it says it's a: Lamps BCM/ECU LEXUS SC430 2002 2003 2004 2005

Notes: LAMP ECU,LEVELING,89960-24010
Mileage: 43,000 Miles

$114 beats $400 that's for sure. They have two of them. Hope this helps better this time!
