Customer Question
I have a 2007...

I have a 2007 es350 with the blinking AFS light. I replaced the bulbs and the AFS light started blinking. The on/off switch will stop the blinking for a few seconds and then it starts again. The rear sensor seems ok, nothing broken.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

AFS on dash and just blinks

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '07 Lexus?

ES350

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I have removed the rear sensor and put it back on. The lights will move right and left and do not bind. When the lights turn on they start at a low position and then raise to driving status.
