Check all fuses including the larger ones under the hood in the distribution box. You probably blew a fuse hopefully you didnt damage the ecu

I have 2002 pt . I have no problem with it, started it and put in gear, went to pull out and it shut off, now it won,t start back up, put new battery in, new switch, still nothing,


Possible starter failure if the engine doesn't crank. You can try tapping on the starter motor using a blunt object while turning the key to see if it starts. If it starts, suspect a defective starter motor. If it is a manual transmission, you can push start it in gear

Hooked up battery backwards now engine isn't


No. Replace the Engine control unit that was destroyed when you reversed the polarity to it.

Won't turn over


Even though all your other electrical bits are working it could be that your battery doesn't have enough juice to crank the engine. It doesn't take much power to run the radio, lights, etc, but cranking the engine requires the battery to have a very strong charge. If your battery is more than 5 years old, that's very likely the issue. I'd start there. Also, be sure to check the battery terminals and ground for corrosion and clean if necessary. If replacing the battery doesn't solve the problem it could be the starter solenoid or a loose electrical connection somewhere.

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

The car won't start; lights, ac, radio etc come on but car won't turn over or even click; checked battery cables; put different battery in; still won't start


Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle

My lexus sucksa aot of current and won't start. What can I do?


so you mean it won`t crank over or it will crank over but not start up.if it won`t crank over and it sounds like the battery is going deaf while trying to start it then it could be the starter motor as long as the battery is in good condition,and no just because the lights and radio work does not mean the battery is any good.it takes little voltage to operate these.

Hooked up the battery reversed polarity. Blew the fusible link but replaced it. Now the car will crank but not start.


start checking fuses hopefully its just another blown fuse if your lucky

but if all the fuses are good, you probably fried something like the computer or ignition module and probably the radio

hopefully its something simple and cheep but don't be surprised if you have to shell out some cash to replace the computer
