You say it doesn't start. Does it turn over good, but won't fire? Does it click and not turn over? If it turns over good but won't actually start, you would need to check fuel pressure output from pump, check spark coming from distributor to plugs and the control module could be bad if there's no spark, as well as the coils. If it doesn't turn over, but clicks when you turn the key, you could have a bad starter.

Alternator not charging battery on Lexus gs300-1998.No battery signal. All other warning signals appeared. Car started right up after a jump,cut back off less than 500 feet away. What can it be?

1. Remove the battery and put it on a charger overnight, see if it holds a charge. If not repair the battery.
2. If the battery holds a charge, replace or repair the alternator' Good chance the brushes need replacing.

The 'C' makes all the difference Barbara. This is not a specific Lexus code. It point to an ABS problem on the right rear wheel.

Last week, my 1998 Lexus ES300 wouldn't start (clicking sound) and I thought it was the battery. I jump started it but noticed that it still made the clicking sound, for my first couple of tries, it did...

If car wont start and clicking sound is heard this is a battery related or starter related, if your car battery is in good condition (which I think it was) then the problem is your starter, have it check to confirm.
