Have the charging system rechecked. It sound an AWFUL lot like an alternator not charging the battery to me.

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.

My interior lights stopped working, my radio won't come on, and my locks stopped working when the car is off I have to lock them manually. Also when I'm driving at night my brake and battery lights bl


Assuming you have checked all fuses, the next step would be to locate central grounding points (there may be several) and remove and clean battery terminals and the remote ends of the cables at their attachment points.Locating some of these may be easier with a manual covering the electrical system of the car:
Sebring manual
When removing battery cables, always start with the negative cable first and reattaching it last.

Car would not start. I jump start car. now car is running but nothing is working,lights,radio, nothing won't work, it's like the car is not on but it's running. battery indicator shows in the red. runs for...


It is your alternator by the sound of it.  You can jump start your car but without a working alternator, you car will not stay running.  Basically, the vehicle is running off of the battery only.  This is a good indication when your radio, lights, and all the 'extras' stop working.  Its a good point to pay attention to these things when you are driving too.  Its a little scary to have the vehicle just stop running when you are still driving!!   Have it towed in, don't try to drive it to a repair shop!
