SOURCE: all dash warning lights came


You're alternator has gone bad and the vehicle was running on battery power. The "clicking" sound is your now dead battery that does not have enough power to turn over the starter. You might also want to check your power steering pump for leak. This is a know problem with early LS400s and will most likey be the cause of the alternator failure. I just dropped $1050.00 to fix the very same promblems you have.

SOURCE: I have a 1996 Lexus LX450, engine light came on. The DTC is P0420

With that code you most likely have to replace the catalytic converter.You can try to reset the light but it will come back in time.

your battery is dead!! Even if jumped, if the battery is dead celled it will not have sufficient power to crank. Dead celled batteries will hold a charge momentarily then slowly die again. I recommend temporarily swapping a battery from another vehicle to try and start your ES300. This is to make sure it isnt the starter or alternator thats the problem. To test the alternator, use a voltmeter at the battery terminals (w/car started and running) to check voltage should be (13.5-14.5 volts). If you do not have a voltmeter,(old school way) simply start the car, while engine running pull the positive terminal off the battery(make sure NOT to ground the positive terminal). If the vehicle dies, possible alternator or alt circuit failure. Bring it to autozone or advance auto to test for free. Hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks

Air bag warning light remains on after complete battery drain. New battery did not extinguish the light. How do I fix this problem

That's a safety issue and even after repairing a fault, the light has to be actively turned off with a scan tool - trying tricks with the battery won't reset it.

The airbag light means that a problem with the airbag has been detected and that there is an error code stored in the airbag control module. The code will tell you what is wrong with the airbag. The code can be read at the nearest Lexus dealer, you will be charged a fee of $80.

Sometimes the light can be reset by disconnecting battery for ten minutes. Disconnecting battery will also delete the error codes stored. If the light comes back when you connect back the battery, that means that the problem is still there, and that the airbag control module detected the problem immediately.

All warning lights & dials on dash flip on and off continuiously?

I would suspect that the alternator is not charging sufficiently.

Be sure that it is charging or you risk a break down if the battery dies.

This time of year alot of batteries fail because of the cold but a bad battery will not turn on the charging light. This usually only occurs when the alternator isnt charging. When the battery drains enough its possible thats why you have these other issues.
Codes only set when the computer does not see the correct voltages
