My radio, LCD display, and some lights do not come on. All

Customer Question

My radio, LCD display, and some lights do not come on. All fuses are good.
JA: Have you checked the fuse?
Customer: Yes. I checked all the fuses for continuity with multimeter and also visually checked radio 1 and 2, panel, and dome fuses.
JA: What is the model/year of your Lexus?
Customer: 01 rx300
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am. I sent the vehicle to Toyota dealership and another car shop. They said they could not find any reason for no power. So I bought a new radio and LCD, installed myself...still not working.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No ma'am

Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your patience and input to my questions to better help you. I read your notes and have a question before we proceed. Other then the radio illumination what other lights do not work? Do the gauge lights work?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
That's it. Everything works except for radio, display screen, and interior dome lights.
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 3 months ago.

If all fuses are ok then I would suspect the dimmer switch may be faulty , did they check or try another one of those?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No they did not. How do I check if summer switch is bad? Also how would dinner switch effect the radio not turning on when pressing power button?
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 3 months ago.

oh I thought it was just an illumination problem, sorry . If the radio is not turning on and if all fuses and I am assuming they checked them properly. I would suspect the power head is faulty.Did you have any work done on the dash or any accessories installed?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No work done. Just one day it all stopped working. Dome lights, radio, LCD screen. I didn't even realize the dome lights weren't working until I researched the issue after pulling the fuses. I saw others say their dome lights weren't working either. That's when I noticed.

this is too hard to diagnose over the internet , I would need hands on so will opt out so another one may shed some light on this.

Ok. Thanks for trying.
