    Does anybody have a spare LED brake bar (the one that goes on the rear gate ) for a LX450 ? My truck failed VA inspection yesterday because my LED brake light is not "bright enough". I ordered a new one on Ebay but is coming from Florida so....who knows when is gong to get here. I could go ghetto with some Walmart option but I thought I would ask you guys first.

    Many thanks,

    Not me, look for the thread about the crashed cruiser in our club section.

    I’d check the wiring before replacing it, sounds more like a bad ground.

    I did take it out and checked for corrosion. Didn't see anything obviously wrong. Wires look solid, although I didn't put the Fluke on them .I understand that the problem can be triggered by the Zenner diodes on the bar. There are people on mud talking replacing them and fixing the issue.

    I will check the wires when I get home

    I replaced the light and its all fixed now. Since Radio Shack is no more, I didn't feel like looking for Zenner diodes on the internet. Besides, I wanted to get the inspection done before the trip.

    I agree with BK. You need a better inspection Garage. They must not have liked your accent, and figured they could muscle a defenseless poor Eastern European immigrant.
