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,

brelic

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

    i forgot to mention the circuit opening relay in behind the glove box you need to take all that apart to get to the relay.... you will see three relay in a row the one you want is in the middle....

Do you hear the pump come on briefly with key in run, not start? You should check fuel pressure-some parts stores rent a fuel pressure tester for small fee. Or try this: spray some starting fluid into the air intake when trying to start. If it starts and runs a few seconds, you know you have a fueling problem- pump or injectors or something with the fuel.
Always check for trouble codes with a no start. If checking for spark and have no spark to the plugs, then it could be the crank position sensor. That sensor is crucial for the computer to figure spark timing. But if no spark, it could be other things as well, like the cam position sensor, ignition control module, or a problem in the circuits for all these. The crank sensor is just an educated guess for no spark-not a certainty.
Since it won't run, you can't go to have the computer scanned for free at a parts store-do you have any friends or relatives with an OBD-2 hand held scanner? Just to check for any trouble codes, but do check for fuel and spark.

1998 Neon. Fuel pump problems...


Has the car been running one day and won't start the next and thats why you replaced those parts? This may be the distributor ignition modual later then when it is going out can act like its got demon in it. This modualator will shut power down to your fuel pump.

Now you can try something first though. Run a wire from a hot wire to the fuel pump and see if it will start and run while that wire is hooked up.
If it does then you can find a wire that only becomes hot when the key is turned on so the pump won't run all the time and only when the car is running. This is called gerry riggen in the service and not the proper way to do it. You may get an engine line on because of it too which will put the computer into trouble mode and cut your power down. But maybe not. Try it and see what takes place. If it still won't start then we need to look into testing the ignition modualator. Keep me informed and I will be glad to help you in the matter as well. Raz

this year model is notorious for fuel related probs...check the remainder of the fuel system, injectors, and the fuel pressure regulator also verify that the fuel pump is actually running and getting the correct amount of power to the pump itself..... it may not be bad just not getting enough power
