The 2003 Lexus GX470 classifies as a midsize luxury SUV that puts the LX470 through its paces. Automotive journalists across the board hail the GX470 as one of the best SUVs on the market, even beating out the former king, its cousin, the LX470. If you want an attractive SUV that drives well on and off the road, the Lexus GX470 makes a good choice for you.
The video above shows you how to replace the battery in your 2003 Lexus GX470. We recommend changing the battery in Lexuss every 4 years. Although some batteries last much longer, most batteries begin breaking down chemically after four years, so you could experience dimmer headlights and other negative effects before you have a dead battery in your GX470 that you need to replace.
Replacing the battery in your GX470 involves removing the terminals. When you reconnect the terminals, your radio presets are likely to be cleared out. In some GX470s, you may need to re-enter a security code to get your radio to work again. Check for this code in your owners manual - it will usually be either a sticker or small card in the booklet. If you can't find it, call Lexus and they will give you the code for free. In many Lexuss, the transmission "learns" how you drive over time and makes adjustments, so you may experience altered driving dynamics as your car re-learns your driving style after changing the battery.
The Lexus GX470 has an aggressive, monochromatic exterior with several similarities to other Lexus vehicles. The front windshield uses privacy glass with a green tint. This also provides ultra-violet ray protection. The 2003 Lexus GX470 remains a bit smaller than its SUV cousin, the LX470. Lexus offers an optional power sunroof and body-colored roof rack for the GX470.
The brake lights on your 2003 Lexus GX470 illuminate when you hit the brake pedal and help prevent you from being rear ended by the cars behind you. Brake light bulbs grow dimmer over time and eventually burn out. This video shows you how to change the brake lights on your 2003 Lexus GX470. When you replace the brake light bulb on your GX470, be careful not to touch the bulb directly with your fingers - the oil from your skin will cause the area that you touched to burn hotter than the rest of the bulb, which causes the bulb to burn out quicker.
If you are going to replace a bulb in your cluster, it is a good idea to replace all of them. Not only will the lights on your GX470 be brighter, you decrease the likelihood you will need to change any of the bulbs again in the near future. A burnt out bulb in the taillight cluster of your GX470 is an excuse for a police officer to pull you over. Check your bulbs frequently and change burnt bulbs promptly.
