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.
I have a 2004 RX330 that was running fine. The other day the battery was dead and I jumped the car and it started right up. I guess the battery didn't charge all the way because I tried to start it back up again and it wouldn't. I tried to jump it again....this time the alarm/horn sounded constantly. I disconnected the cables and started over. I put the key in the ignition, in the on position. Left the door open, hooked up the cables. The alarm sounded this time but not a constant blast of the horn. After leaving the cables hooked up for a while it still wouldn't start so I went and got a fresh battery. The car will respond to the keyfob, doors lock and unlock. When I put the key in the ignition and turn it the dash cluster lights up but the car wont crank. I cant get the radio to come on, the windows wont roll down. All I get is the dome light and instrument cluster. I went through and checked fuses and everything looks fine.
Curious if this could be something with the security system or something else.
Need a little help.
It died on me last week. The flashy lights blinked a code 12, meaning a no rpm signal.
Suggesting a Crank Sensor replacement.
I am trying to get it out, its on the underside.
Problem is, it came up about 1 mm, then stopped and things broke off.
I am guessing I am not the first one having problems getting a 25 year old sensor out.
Is there a way to get it out by drilling ? Does the hole have a bottom ?
If not, when I drill it out, will stuff go in the hole and cause problems ?
Hi everyone. I have a 2006 GS300, 2 weeks ago when leaving work i unlocked the car and pressed the brake in and once i pressed the start button everything died electrical. After 2-3 minutes i saw the system restart and i was able to start and drive home. Today the same thing happened except this time no reboot, no electrical, cant even go into acc mode. No lights or power locks and the brake pedal stays pressed in. Anyone know whats going on? or possibly point me in the right direction?
I have a 99 gs300 that I drove to work and back perfectly fine but later in the night it wouldn't want to turn on. All of the lights turned on but all I could hear was a whirring. I'm not sure if the theft system turned on because the key is somewhat taped together and the chip might be bad
