Question about 1994 Lexus LS 400

1 Answer

Maybe starter? Here is my problem. I drove my car home and turned it off. About three minutes later I went to move the car and when I turned the ignition all it would do is start clicking.

    I tried jumping the car and it still wouldn't start. If the battery is dead would the radio turn on? My radio turns on.

    No the horn doesn't blow at all. If you listen closely you can hear some very light noise.

    That was the problem. Thanks

You have a dead battery, the noise is relay chatter from low voltage. Have the alternator tested before you just buy a new battery.

If you had white smoke then you have a blown head gasket. Even though it hasnt yet mixed with the oil you are still having the white smoke. Is there any water left in the radiator or reservoir?

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...


Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Sounds like the starter.If you can locate it,tap on it with a hammer 3 or 4 times and try to restart.It may take several tries but should eventually start because starters don't quite fail 100%,they just kind of get stuck.If you can't find the starter,call a couple of parts stores or a dealer,someone is always willing to tell you for free to attract your business.It should work and you need a new starter.I put in a used one a couple of years ago and no problems yet,but the decision is yours.Good luck!

Key will not turn to start vehicle.


Try pushing in the key while turning the wheel either way. And jiggling it. This happens because the steering locks for the car's protection. If we park it with the wheels turned, it locks in that position. If that does not work, you may have to call a good mechanic to help you.
