    Have you tried to jump start it? Sometimes when the battery is on its last leg it will make a clicking noise and fail to start.

There are a number of things that could cause that. Try turning the key to the on position and crossing the starter terminals with a screwdriver. If it starts you have a bad ignition. If it still just clicks your starter has seized up or your battery might be lacking the charge to do the job. Hope these help you.

Some times you have a bad neutral safty switch so try moving your gear shifter in neautral or put it in between N and D and hold it and try it , if not hold it between N and R and try it . It happened to me too.It will start if you keep playing with it, be persistent.
hope it starts, fellow Lexus owner.

My Lexus LS400 was running perfect - no issues whatsoever. Today it won't start. Have tried jumping it but no luck. It acts like it is about to start but won't.


sounds like an engine immobilizer problem. close all doors,hood & trunk completely. lock and unlock the car three times with remote, then put key in door lock and lock & unlock three times.
did you accidently try to start with wrong key?

Telescopic Steering wheel won't move down or up


Yes it would be perfectly ok to disegauge the auto switch to keep it from moving again. It needs a tilt motor replaced . not a easy job.

Recently replaced starter, car turns over but won't start


Anti-Deterrent ECU:
This is also possibility especially someone else drive your car. This is very common if you lend your car to someone. The symptom of this condition is "No noise or sound at all" when ignition key is turned. If this is faulty, the symptom will be the complete ignition kill. Therefore, you will not heard and clicking sound or engine turning at all. If this is the problem, you can easily reset the Anti-Deterrent by using your key. Stand out side of the car and close all doors. Insert the key into the driver side door and turn the key to clockwise and counterclockwise for three four cycles. Basically, you are lock, unlock for 4 times and this procedure will reset the anti-deterrent ECU. If this happen to you, its quite scary at first, but the solution is very simple.
