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.
So I have a 2006 Lexus ES330 with 83,000 miles. It's been a great car so far. I have noticed the acceleration slip that most people talk about but I'm ok with that. I just had a new battery put in three days ago under warranty because my battery of less than two years completely died. I also had my inspection done at the same time and passed. According to Firestone they tested my alternator and it was fine. So now three days later I am driving and my car goes nuts like it's having a power surge, I can tell the accelerator isn't engaging, the dash lights (brake, ABS, check engine and a faint battery light) come on and my air starts blowing super high, then low and does this about 3 times before I shut it off. I parked the car and after about 1 min all the dash lights go off but the check engine light. I go to auto zone and have them run a diagnostic and it shows my vehicle speed sensor caused the check engine light to come on. Well that doesn't explain the power surge and my speedometer (which is usually the first to go if the sensor is bad) is working fine. Any ideas???
Hi Guys / gals,
I have a 2006 GS 300 AWD, i am having issues with starting my car, it has starting issues intermittently,
- car wont start after being parked, had AAA come and jump start the car and seems to be fine. they told me my battery was dead so i took it to the dealer
- dealer did a parasidic test on the vehicle, and seems everything was opertating normally and advised I did not need a new battery, although they suggested the since the car is 6 years old it may require a new battery.
- I had the battery replaced, and the problem reappered a couple days back. Car wouldnt start after being parked for a short period of time. We waited for about 10 mins, pumped the brakes and seems to start the car.
- does anyone have any suggestions or had the same issues
this is my parents car and i need to get this problem solved ..... please help!!
