Black out LCD is almost in all first generation SC400 and LS400 or Celsior. If you are driving a 90-94 LS400/Celsior or 1992-1996 SC400 (SC400 LCD Replacement Tutorial), its time to change it out. More detail installation instruction on the SC400/Soarer. We are offering the LCD part with little soldering skills you can complete refurbish your ride. For an average person, the step by step instruction should able to get through this project. However, if you like you can take your LCD and the oem climate controller and they can swap it out for you. It was just too expensive to replace it with Lexus OEM climate control. Local dealers are asking $750 USD. Some re-manufacture unit runs about $300. Can not justify paying that much just for a display. This is a very common problem with the Lexus LS400/Celsior from 1990-1994 or SC400 1992-1996. As you might guessed I tried the capacitors replacement and did not do any good. There aren't too many choices for fixing the Lexus Climate/Clock LCD Display. One is to get an re-manufactured unit from a company in California for $300 or get a used LCD from a junkyard. However, getting it from a junkyard has no guarantee and most of the LCD over a decade would have the same problem sooner or later and the price would run you about $250-300. This is the best bang for your buck. Now available in both Left Hand Drive (LHD) like the U.S. Spec LS400 and Right Hand Drive (RHD) like J-Spec Celsior

The following instructions are for the removal of the A/C Climate Control Unit
on 1990 through 1994 Lexus LS400 model vehicles
Tools: The basic tools I used for this project was a screw driver, solder, solder cleaner and a volt meter
Time: Took me about an hour. Since this is my first time.
Warning: Since your unit had been exposed to extreme temperature like heat, cold, sunlight and UV light for the past 12-14 years. The clock control bottoms sometime get stuck into the plastic plate. Secondly, there is also some glue on the plastic face cover. If the used LCD doesn't come out easily, do not force it out. You will break the plastic piece guarantee . To avoid this problem, from my personal experience I recommended that you should use a blow dryer and slowly heat up the LCD and the plastic plate from the back. This will take about 5-8 minutes. Be patience the glue will soften up. Don't heat the LCD in the front of the unit. Heat it from behind. With heat, this piece will come out easier.
Impression: I am so impress with Jim's LCD product. Its easy and no guess work. I highly recommend this product to all the first generation Lexus LS400 owners. Its affordable and very easy task.

4.LCD Display Background light bulbs, $5 each
What would I do differently? You must be careful removing the LCD. Since it last installed and heat, sometime the clock got stuck on the plastic cover. Use extra caution on removing the LCD. Secondly, don't stay on the pin for too long when you use the solder. You can easily burn the board. The project can be done by an average handy person. If you are not comfortable with it, I would highly recommend someone with soldering experience or we can do it for you. Good luck! Once again, Jim did a great job on this unit.Here are some satisfied customers' comments:
I received the LCD in perfect condition and thanks for the extra bulbs. I installed it with the instructions you included and had no problems...very easy to follow. Except that when I pulled the old smudged LCD it cracked the front plastic lens on the cover. By the way, Do you have one for sale?...or know where I can get one? We'll anyways the LCD worked perfectly...Thanks to you. For anyone who owns a Lexus LS400 with the same LCD problem...I highly recommend these guys. By the way great website!!!...Lots of info.

positive feedback. This is a great, affordable product for a very frustrating
I received my LCD screen from you less than a couple of hours ago and it is installed and working perfectly. You have saved me a ton of money and now I can say that I repaired it myself. I was going to have somebody else put it in for me but my impatience got the better of me. Thank you again and I will pass your product along to anyone I encounter with the same problem as I. good luck and I hope you do well. Louis DeMaria Jr. Nightrain316@msn.com
David: After much frustration with my Lexis dealer, I was elated to find not only the parts I needed, but an honest person to deal with.
