SOURCE: all dash warning lights came

Hatterasnc,

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: 1992 LS 400 Lexus. Car wouldn't start. New

remove black plastic relay cover in plastic underhood fuse box and activate relay9006980.jpg with a very small screwdriver and ignition on. If starts, obviously the starter is fine, if not the starter is indeed bad and needs replacement so hold onto your ankles cuz it's gonna hurt.

SOURCE: 1997 Neon dies, starts after electric fuel pump relay swapped

Hello, I would assume this is your fuel pump inside your tank. I would first however do some basics like a general tuneup. For starters I would replace your spark plugs and wires, rotary cap and button and check your fuses. Run some injector cleaner through your system. You know quick simple cheap things before you get to the fuel pump inside the gas tank which can be kinda expensive. The warm up then dies can be caused by, "blownout or fouled," spark plugs. I hope this gives you a general direction in which to go. A sidenote is that coil packs do not normally run an igntion code and I for one do not like them becuase they are expensive.

My car runs for awhile then tac starts bouncing around & car dies, won't start back up for awhile. What could this be?


First inclination is a fuel delivery problem. Several causes for this are:

  1. Clogged fuel injectors
  2. Air in fuel line
  3. Leak in fuel line
  4. Bad gas filter
  5. Bad fuel pump

My car starts but it does not stay running if i put my leg on the gas it dies


it really sounds like your fuel pump or fuel injectors are either not working properly or totally broken. Good luck. Beware going to sites that require clicking things.

Where is the Alternator located in a 1997 Lexus LS 400


If the car ran and got you home after a jump start I doubt the alternator is bad. Check your battery. And remember never ever disconnect the battery cable with the engine running.
