This service is for the factory rebuild or upgrade of your 1992 – 2000 Lexus SC300 and SC400 climate control unit. The base price you see on the listing covers replacing burned out bulbs with new bulbs only. Use the drop downs to “add-on” options if you need more items repaired or changed.
We began repairing and selling these climate control units back in 2011. We quickly designed and manufactured our TAE branded LCD screens and also created the very rare 8v bulbs used behind the LCD screen. Lexus used 14v bulbs behind the buttons. We are not sure why they used two different voltage bulbs in these units. Buy confident knowing that we will replace the lighting correctly. Other repair shops will use a generic 12 volt bulb for the entire climate control. This will lead to an excessively dim screen compared to everything else in the cabin.
If you are looking to upgrade the look of the standard yellow or golden lighting to something more colorful we do offer LED conversions. We will install long life, low heat colorful LED’s in various different positions. We can change the screen color, button color, and even the indicator color which are the small square lights above each button.
There are many times it’s more beneficial to ship your SC300 or SC400 climate control to us versus just buying another used unit. Typically a used unit will be in worse condition than your original, it may have a damaged or scratched front lens, a bad LCD screen, or bad lighting. You will be in the same predicament again. Our repair service is much more cost effective than spending 2-3 times more on a replacement.
The climate control HVAC controllers are year specific. You can only interchange climate controls between 1992 and 1994, 1995 and 1996, and 1997-2000. If you mix and match climate controls you will have blower motor issues, fan speed issues, and other unwanted problems with the climate control not working correctly.
Keep in mind that when you install a brand new LCD screen and lighting in your climate control it probably will not match the old worn out screen and lighting in your factory Nakamichi or Pioneer stereo. Unfortunately there are no new LCD screens available for these units and not enough demand for us to produce brand new LCD screens. We do offer a service to replace the light bulbs in your factory radio, assuming that is the only issue you need fixed. We don’t repair sound or power issues on the radios.
Also available is a similar repair service with your choice of our black or blue LCD screen!

Excellent service and turn over time. Couldn’t be happier with the finished and updated climate control for my 1998 lexus sc400

This is my second experience with Tanin and it was flawless from placing the order through receipt of the completed services. I previously purchased a refurbished instrument cluster for my 93 Lexus SC400 about a year ago – the limited lifetime of LED ‘needles’ are the one of the weak points of an otherwise over engineered car, as is the Climate Control Unit’s LCD. Tanin provided courteous, prompt and reliable service. I am extremely pleased with the results and so thankful that their services are even available to maintain the vintage car I love to drive!

Looks great, makes my factory radio look like it needs replacing though! I have two SCs and will likely send in another climate control in the future in order to have one that’s nice and colorful, rather than super fresh OEM. Not to say that Tanin didn’t do a great job restoring it to factory spec, but it would be interested to switch up the color scheme in a car that’s not quite as OEM spec.

These folks couldn’t more easy to work with. Sent my unit off and in a few days it was returned in perfect working order. I especially appreciate the “how to” video making the job even easier. In the future hopefully nothing else needs repair but if the worst does happen I’ll be right back here. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.

My climate control screen on my ’96 SC400 was mostly blacked out, so I sent it to Tanin Auto to have it rebuilt. When I got it back and installed, it looks great. I forgot how nice it was having it looking new again. Thanks guys
