Sounds like a bad battery . recommend going to a battery retailer and asking them to test the car battery and alternator. You may need a replacement battery or have alternator fixed depending on result of battery test. You may be able to phone a person to come out to look at the battery. Like holler a Marshall as an example

SOURCE: 95 Lexus ES 300 check engine light is on and the overdrive off light is flashing

chances are you don't have to replace the computer. the reason i tell you this is because you did not mention that the car is running lousy. no complaints of rough idle or missfire or hard starting. chances are that your engine speed sensor which sends the signal to the computer which then controls the transmission is most likely the culprit.. and it could just bhe that there is a loose connection between the two. if that is ok then your transmission control module is faulty. this is not the main computer, but the gobetween the trans and the ecm.. hope this helps please rate this...thanks(btw....the knock sensors control timing not the trans mission)

Unscrew the gas cap, wait 30 sec and screw it back on making 3 clicks/cracks. Should be ok in a day or two.

SOURCE: How do I change the license plate lights on a 1997 Lexus ES 300

Open the deck lid (trunk) to better access the lights. There will be 2 of them. Recommend replacing both at the same time even if only one has failed. Generally sold in pairs anyway.

Directly above the license plate will be mounted 2 clear light covers. On the right side of each light cover you can see a small plastic rivet. Push in the center 1/4 inch with a small screwdriver then you will be able to pry out and remove the rivet without damaging it. This will save you from buying replacement plastic rivets for re-installation. Remove the light cover with the bulb harness attached.

The bulb harness requires a short turn counter clockwise to remove it from the light cover and the new bulbs snap into the harness. No twisting or screwing. Replace the bulb harness the same way and fasten the light cover back into place using the plastic rivet.

Saves time because both bulbs and light covers are exactly the same style, there is no left or right. Cheers!

Why won 't computer communicate with code checker


Check the cigarette lighter fuse. This is what powers the DLC. If the fuse is good, check and see if the lighter works. If not, you have a bad wire. Code readers have to have power from the car. Most scanners have there own power and will read the computer, unless the data wire is bad or the computer is bad.

probably the fuse that powers the cigarette lighter also powers the radio so check the cigarette lighter and socket for a short and replace the fuse.

Used cigarette lighter to inflate tire, left inflater on for a long time now cigarette lighter doesn't work and car doesn't always start


It sounds like you might have drained your battery! When the car is running does the Cigarette lighter produce power? It should be working while the car is running. That would also explain why the car starts sporadically. Try leaving the car on for 40 minutes. That might charge the battery enough.

My tail lights are out as well as my cigarette lighter and both rear power windows and I'm wondering if its fuses ?


My first guess would be a blown fuse for the tail lights and cigarette lighter. Check the rear window lock out button on the window switch.

Will not shift out of park


It is the same fuse as the courtesy lights and cigarette lighter. It may be in the interior fusebox or the exterior one.

My car will not go into gear unless its started and already in gear. Ill pull it outta gear and won't go back in while running.


Your transaxle will have to come out & new parts installed,
like synchro rings

You should be able to push in the clutch & shift thru all
gears nice & smooth,with no engine running.

That said I wouldn't rule out clutch issues also,but not
for the shifting issues.

Changing the cigarette lighter


Well for that you could look at a junkyard or automotive supply dealer, you'd be looking for a 12volt accessory socket\lighter socket.

Wiring it would be pretty simple, you uninstall the one in your dash and install the new one.

You'll need basic tools for this and a soldering iron, solder, shrink wrap tubing and a lighter. A wire stripper wouldn't be a bad idea either.
