My car wont start. I checked the battery and was only showing around 5 volts. I charged it overnight and it was still showing 5 volts. I took out the battery and had it tested, it was bad. I put in a new battery and the car still won't start. The battery light and service engine light are on and the dash lights won't go out when the battery is connected. With all that the car won't even turn over. I could use some help if you have any ideas! Thanks.
After months of parasitic battery drain, I was told by my mechanic, a former Lexus mechanic, that the multiplex body control module is what's causing the drain. The car has 157K miles and I hadn't planned on doing another repair before selling it. Where is this part located, what labor has to be done to replace it, and is it possible to get a refurbished one that will work with my existing key? My mechanic says it's possible this is related to an accident in which the headlight was replaced, so the case is being reopened with the insurance company. Since the servo motor is also going bad, should I just trade in the car?
I have a 1999 RX300. About 4 months ago the battery started going dead after 48 hours on non-use. The battery was 3 years old and tested fine. I had it recharged and again...the car went dead. I had it replaced. Same thing.
Since then I have had three different mechanics test every electrical system. All fuses were fine and nothing showed up on the diagnostic meter. I changed the Body Control Module. Still no luck.
Some issues that occured around the same time the battery started dying were: My key fob would not work on the door lock system. My 6-disk CD player would not load one disk properly. My right-front ABS brake sensor went bad after the transmission was replaced last year. I have since had the ABS sensor replaced.
Please give me suggestions or insight. I am willing to try anything at this point.
Electrical problem with my 1999 Lexus RX300.
About 4 months ago the battery started going dead within 48 hours of non-use. I had the battery recharged and again...the car went dead. I had it replaced. Same thing. No matter what I tried the problem persisted.
Since then I have had three different mechanics test every electrical system and circuit. All fuses were fine and nothing showed up on the diagnostic meter. I changed the Body Control Module. Still no luck. Finally I purchased a Jump-and-carry.
Please give me any suggestions or insight. I am willing to try anything at this point.
