Rx300 Parked For 4 Months, Won't Start Now.


Recommended Posts


I have this Lexus RX300 (2000) that I had parked in the grage whe I went overeas on extended vacation. After coming, I tried to start but there was no actvity, not even a click, no auxiliary lights, nothing. I even tried to give it a jump start, but it was all the same. The car is just dead, before/after jump start. What surprises me is that even a jump start doesn't result in any click, lights on, or what not.

The battery in the car was new installed and was used for only about a month before I parked the car. I even unplugged the battery cables so the battery won't go down. But, apparently it is down. but any ideas, why the jump start doesn't produce any activity? thanks!

Hello skperformance,

Thanks for responding! I don't have a multimeter, but I took out the battery and took to a NAPA store. The battery was down, they charged it to full, did a load test which came out fine. I put it back in the car, but still the same problem. There's simply no sign of life.

I begin to suspect if the starter has a problem. unfotunately, I don't think I have any watranty left on this car.

I would hate for it to be towed for some minor fault. any suggestions?? anyone??
