l If the replaced fuse blows again, have the vehicle inspected by your Lexus dealer.

CAUTION

- To prevent system breakdowns and vehicle fire
Observe the following precautions.

Failing to do so may cause damage, and possibly a fire or injury.

l Never use a fuse of a higher amperage rating than indicated, or use any other object in place of a fuse.

l Always use a genuine Lexus fuse or equivalent.

Never replace a fuse with a wire, even as a temporary fix.

This can cause extensive damage or even fire.

l Do not modify the fuse or the fuse box.

NOTICE

- Before replacing fuses
Have the cause of electrical overload determined and repaired by your Lexus dealer.
