The easiest way is to carefully connect jumpleads and start the car or remove the battery and charge it,as the car is probably an automatic i would`nt tow it even fora short distance.

I have a Lexus Rx400h, the engine won't start. the lights, including dashboard lights, aircon, radio are on, just won't go to ready and start

Can you ensure the car is in park?
Move lever to D and then back into Park and see what happens.
I have heard with this particular model, we have the environmentally unfriendly RX 330, that the batteries lack of charge may play havock with the electrics in these cars.
I religously charge my battery every six months with a smart charger so its always in peak, I also find a quick zap at the first cold snap of autumn / winter gives us trouble free motoring.

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.

Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

My 1998 lexus 300rx will not start, the battery is good

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.
