Question about 1996 Lexus ES 300
Car was running fine went to the store one day,when I shut it off it would not start up. a friend replaced my fuel pump said wire contacts were melted.replaced pump new cotacts,car started right up ,then shut off. checked contacts ,and to see if their was power going to pump none! didn't see any relay for fuel pump in any of fuse boxes please help Ty
I had a similar experience just the other day, i stopped to get gas and turned the car off and when attempting to turn the car back on nothing would happen. Well, let me rephrase the lights inside and out would work as well as the ac and the radio. My initial train of thought was maybe it was the battery so i went and purchased a new battery which was around $100, I installed the new battery and the car still wouldn't start. Does your car make a clicking noise when you turn the inginition key or is it just silent? If it is silent, you might want to check to see if your starter has burned out. Luckly a friend of a friend does his own mechanical work and was able to remove and replace the starter for me. After the starter was replaced the car started right up and ran perfectly. Not sure where u live but in my area a starter ranges in price from $100-200, but they also charge a core fee ranging from $45+, which can be reimbursed if you bring in your old starter to the store. I would suggest getting a starter with a lifetime warranty as well, but thats just a suggestion.
Hope this helps,

What year is the es300? On my 1993 es300 the mass airflow sensor also plays a role in the electrical of the fuel pump... so if its not getting power at the fuel pump check the circuit opening relay and the mass air flow sensor.....
hope that works for ya
