Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2022 Repair Manual: Transmission Control Switch Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The transmission control switch detects when the shift lever is moved to M.

Moving the shift lever to "+" once selects the next higher gear, and moving the shift lever to "-" once selects the next lower gear.
