What happens when you turn the key?... is there a clicking or clunking noise?... try tapping the starter and the solenoid that is attached to the starter and see if that helps. It may help if you have someone else turn the key while you tap on the starter and solenoid.

SOURCE: Suspected immobiliser problem
Immobilizer unit is connected in series with the neutral safety switch.
Next time your Luxes GS fail to start.....put you foot on the brake,shift to NEUTRAL (N) and turn the key.
A shorting/shorted neutral will draw power and kill the battery.
Give it a try.
Please post result on the comment window.

SOURCE: Left lights on ,and ran
Find the alarm and disconnect it, or locate the fuse to the alarm and remove it. Then you can charge the battery without all the noise. Once the battery is charged, hook the alarm up and disarm it with the remote.
