RELAY!!! Can a mod please change the title for search purposes
*** I have no idea what thread this is supposed to be in. I picked Go fast stuff bc I figured more people would see it
I've been searching that some of you guys have been having this problem, where you hear a strange clicking from your fuse box when your car is off thus killing the battery.
For those of you who don't know what relay i'm talking about
For me at least, pulling this fuse did nothing, because when I pulled it, I still heard clicking. No point spend $100 to replace a functional part.
What you most likely need, is the ignition cylinder harness (the name will vary Sewell lexus calls it Ignition starter switch assembly
you can order it right from Sewell here
part # 8445012200
It looks like this,
The guys at Sewell (as always) were super helpful with ordering me this part.
My buddies at Tf Works
showed me what was most likely making a switch go crazy when the key was out of the ignition
Taken apart, If you see at 11 o clock (imagine the circle as a clock), that stupid piece of exposed copper on the wall. This is the culprit.
Now as far as getting to the part, yes it is behind the key, yes it seems like you have to take the dash apart or take off the steering wheel column. Which is what everyone
has been saying.
TF said looking around after taking apart the dash, they realized that they they could have gotten to this part under the dash (around where your right knee would be) without taking it apart. LOL
To fix this annoying problem which some people have said they paid 3 4 or 500, I spent under 200
with labor, parts and shipping.
Any further questions, don't pm, just post so everyone can benefit
