Question about 1996 Lexus ES 300

2 Answers

My lexus es300 96 wont start. Sometimes a jump would help but it cuts out in the middle of the highway. I've check the battery and I'm sure because the battery is good the alternator too should be fine. But where does the problem exist from?

Engine cut out on highway

From the description, you could have a few different problems. First thing to check would be to make sure that the car is getting spark. The easiest way to check is to pull a spark plug wire from the coil or distributor and hold it close enough for a spark to jump between the post and the wire. wear rubber gloves so you don't get shocked. have someone turn the key while you hold the wire and look for the spark to jump. If you have spark, you may have a fuel issue. When you turn the key forward you should be able to hear a hum by the fuel tank ( rear or middle of the vehicle) someone else will have to turn the key once again. Even if you hear the hum it could still be a fuel issue. The list of problems that it could be is long so start with that and after you determine if the engine is getting spark the list narrows dramatically. If you have an OBD2 engine code scanner that would help also. let me know what the results are and I can advise further.

Engine won't start, starter makes rattling sound

sounds like the battery disharged. If the key was on along with the lights than 20 minutes would be enough to drain the battery. Try a jump start. it should get you going. I would have the battery tested after driving for at least an hour at highway speeds just to make sure it is good.

if it starts with a jump, then your battery may be going bad. take it to an autoparts store to have them test it. if it's good, then start the vehicle, then remove the negative battery cable and if it dies right away, then you have a bad alternator. if it stays on then the alternator is good. anothe thing could be a battery drain. check out this video to determine if you have one.
