Starter, Ignition or Battery


1999 Lexus GS 3000

When starting the car, place the key in ignition and all of the electrical components will come on including steering wheel moving into driving position. Sometimes the car will start normal and then other times it will not start at all. If you turn the switch and start the process over when it fails it may fire up right away or it may not. Help.

Gs 300 ignition switch


Best guess is the Solinoid (on top of the Starter) is the cause.
There will be a Main cable from the battery bolted onto the Solinoid. Near this (a separate terminal) will be a much thinner wire. This supplies the current from the ign. Sw. to the Solinoid.
Disconnect it. Re-Connect the battery.
If this doesn't fix the problem, Repair the Starter Motor.
If this fixes the problem, turn the Ign. Sw. on and touch the wire back to the terminal.
If the problem is back, the problem is the Ign. Sw.

The factory anti-theft system may not like the chip in the key you are using.
You may have to get a new key or have the system tested.

Dead battery on 2000 clk 320 , after checking oil and plugs . first attempt to start click'd but did not turn over. Next i turned the ignition all the way off then on, it started. Next day, dead.


Well, first, the battery is not dead. You could have a poor electrical connection somewhere between the battery, starter, ignition switch, or another component of your start circuit, or possibly a failing starter solenoid, or ignition switch. Some electrical testing will be necessary to find the problem. A quick check the next time it won't crank over, is to pull the starter solenoid wire off and check for power on the wire when key is held in crank position. If power then, probably a failing starter solenoid. If no power there, then you have to diagnose the start circuit back through the ignition switch to the battery. Are all your battery and ground connections clean and tight? Starter connections? Use process of elimination, use care, and you'll find the problem.

Where is the starter locate on the 1995 lexus es 300 and how do you replace it


I have attached a diagram below also. You will need to climb underneath the engine and disconnect the batter cable line running to the starter and the ignition line. Then take out the starter mounting bolts, and drop the starter down and there might be a starter shim with it. Once it is out put your new one in place including the starter shim and re-insert and tighten the starter mounting bolts. Then remember to re-attach the battery and ignition line to the selenoid. Now start the car, If you hear the starter wind but not turn the car over you may need to install another shim. Well i hope this has helped you. dfeecb8.jpg
