Intermitten starting problems 1999 Lexus GS400

I've had the starter, battery, and alternator checked out what should I check next? What could the problem be? Does the cold weather have anything to do with this problem?

SOURCE: HAVE A CODE PO446 1999

P0446 is an evap code. Most likely, you need to change the charcoal canister vent valve (CCV) under the trunk floor. Fuel cap codes set 3 codes at once, P0440. P0441 and P0446, all at the same time.

When a repair shop performs the maintenence, they should be able to reset it for you. usually you have to hold the trip reset in and then turn the key on, keep holding the button until it resets.

SOURCE: jeep liberty starter sticking in cold weather

Generally I have seen this happen when water gets into the starter and freezes overnight. When you first try to start it, the starter won't work correctly but heat generated while it's stuck will quickly melt the ice and then it works. Only way I know of to eliminate it is to remove the starter and use grease on all the moving parts that connect the solenoid to the starter Bendix drive. Not sure why, but it seems to happen on some starters but not all, even on identical vehicles. I have corrected the problem on many customers cars by greasing but have left mine alone and actually never had a problem other than the initial "being stuck" in the AM. If your starter is very old, you could replace it but that is up to you.

Check battery connection terminals. Check the battery for intermittent internal connections. I had this same problem, was looking at a $750 started before I found it was a defective battery.

The factory anti-theft system may not like the chip in the key you are using.

I have a 1999 Lexus LS-400. Appears to have charging problems (ABS, VSC, & Battery lights on). While running if I disconnect red terminal, car remains running (alternator). Starter checked was OK....


firstly check with your car scanner ,read for fault code, as my experience the alternater fault due to leak in alternator regulator ,check with multimeter for your voltage, at least with light and air con on, it should at least 13.6volt.normally with alternator light on when engine running.conform alternator,replace one thank you

My 2006 Lexus IS 250 has starting problem. Have replaced battery and was fine for a while but problem is occurring again. Don't think it's the starter. Runs fine for days or weeks then all of a sudden...


check the alternator. Sounds like your battery is not being recharged adequately. If you go to AutoZone they will do a circuit diagnosis for free. If its not the Alternator start looking at the starter
