Are there any warning lights on in the dash, may a security warning light? If so you will need to reset the security system, refer to the owners manual or callthe local Lexus dealer for instructions.

Make a standard check of the car before you buy it.(running components and vital parts)
The LS400 is one great car as long as it was taken care of mechanically, you won't have any problems at all

1995 Lexus LS400. Car was left in garage for two weeks while we were on vacation. Upon return it won't start. Engine does turn over. Replaced fuel pump in attempt to troubleshoot. Mechanic ha


I assume the pump was replaced because it was getting power but no fuel pressure ?
Are you still not getting fuel pressure ?
Spark to the plugs ?
Normal compression when cranking the engine ?
Security light not staying on ?

All dash lights on won't start just clicking only


the dashlights should go off when it starts , that should be normal .
sounds like your batterie is flat. try to jumpstart it or charge the batterie overnight and try to start it.
if it runs after that and the dashlights dont turn off it could be your altinator. use a multimeter, set it to 20 v and connect it to the batterie while the engine runs, it should get more than 13,5 v. if you dont have a multimeter go to aany carbatterieshop and ask them to test yout altinator. its free usually. also let them check your batterie.

I have a 95 lexus ls 400...the battery had to be replaced. the radio doesn't come on after battery replacement. is there a reset issue?


if you can get the radio out of dash there is a serial number on the top of radio call lexus number in the owners manual and they can retrieve the code or they will put you in touch with tech support. This way you dont have to go to the dealership and pay hefty charge for the two do three minutes work.
