Question about 2001 Lexus Gs 430
Car dies at the stop sign. I put the car back in park and start the car and it starts. I get home turn off the car and start the car a few times and it started fine. The next day I don't drive the car and on Monday I go to start to the car to get to work and the car doesn't start at all. The lights on the dash still turns on and when I turn the key all the way I just hear a click. What could be wrong? A few months before I had the alternator, battery, belt, and belt tensioner replaced.

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.

I had a similar problem. My 1998 Lexus ES300 wouldn't start. I had to change idle control valve. I don't have such problems ever since. I read that many used Lexus/Toyota owners had the same problem with that valve.

I had the exact same problem or almost 2 years. I kept buying a battery, because I thought that was the problem. I eventually took it to a mechanic and off course the car didn't act up when the mechanic had it for several days. Finally, I checked all of the fuses. It was the cigarette lighter fuse that was blowen. Since I changed that fuse, the car starts up with no problem. It's frustrating everytime you get in the car you cringe when you start it - LOL Hope this helps.
