Battery not charging - Lexus ES300

Hello, I have a problem. I was replacing the water pump on my 1998 Lexus ES300 and when I was re-connecting the alternater I had forgotten to disconnect the battery. There was a pop and some fuses blew. I've replaced all the fuses, but the battery is still not charging... I took the alternater to a parts store to have it tested, and they said it was pulling fine when they put a load on it. I can't figure out what's wrong... Any sugestions?

Your problem is the main fuse is blown under hood. it will be like a 100 or 120 amp fuse bolted in from sides of fuse/relay box.

Replacing a starter on 1999 Lexus ES300 was not all that hard. You had metric socket and combination wrenches and a phillip's screw driver. In this video show you how uninstalled the starter and then replaced it in pretty good detail. This starter is used in 1998 to 2001, and so basically you could use the same procedure that is shown there.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

How much should it cost to replace the timing belt and water pump on a lexus es 2001


My car is a 2001 Lexus ES300 and has 106K miles. I brought it to my mechanic to replace Thermostat, Thermostat Gasket, Timing Belt, Water Pump, Camseals Kit, Crankseal, Air Filter, Fuel Filter, Timing Component and Spark Plugs for a total of $981.24 ($510 of it is labor). He charges at least 1/2 of a dealer so expect to pay more elsewhere. The care drives like a brand new car and I will keep driving it for another 10 years!!!

Timing belt should water pump be changed as well?


If it's a ES300 yes replace water pump, due to timing belt drives water pump, if it's a GS300 no need to replace water pump, not driven by timing belt.
