Electrical problem
1995 Lexus GS 300 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 144000 miles

Hello I have a 1995 Lexus GS300 with 144000 miles on it. Lately it seems as though some of my electronics are running a little slow. The windsheild wipers aren't as fast as they used to be, my HID headlights flicker like they aren't getting enough power, my power windows go up slowly, and even my cd player plays the cd's slower than usual. I've just replaced the battery to see if that fixed the problem but still the same and the altenator was tested and is in great shape. Could it be a bad fuse or maybe even the power wire coming off the battery?

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello and thanks for donating

It is not caused by a faulty fuse, fuses protect circuits so the components on that circuit will either work or not work. Most likely it is a loose ground. Check the battery terminals to ensure they are clean and free of any acid build up. Also ensure they are tightened properly. Check the same cables at the other end which will be at the alternator.
