You need to have the security system programmed, many locksmiths can do this, and of course the dealer as well.

Will a power steering pump off a 98 lexus es300 work for a 98 lexus ls400?


best ask a steering specialist shop as the engine identification shows a es300 as a 1mz-fe (3.0 ltr) and a ls400 as a 1uz-fe (4.0 ltr)
there may be mounting differences between the engines

98 lexus es300 does not start


Vijay, Number one: does it start with a jump? If so, then have the battery load tested. if it is good, look to replacing the starter.
If the battery is good after a recharge, and the load test is good, but it goes flat when parked- usually overnight- then it is the starter too.
Other than that, we get into open circuits, broken switches, etc. LOTSA troubleshooting on thise. Do the basics first, though. Usually you are golden with that. Let us know what your outcome is,

One day went to start my lexus es300 and it was pretty jumpy it smoothed out after getting some speed but once i got in to 3rd gear it would not go to 4th so going 65 mph at 4500 rpm also evry time i came...


you should check ur spark plugs for the jumpy. and also if the car is a manual there might be a problem with the gearbox either the whole clutch kit is gone or just the master cylinder is not giving away the break fluid..

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

Hesistaton at idle speed. how many ignition coils are used in a 98 lexus es300?


I looked it up on AutoZone.com and it looks like there is only one coil.  You can verify that by giving them a call.  However, to me it sounds like you might be having a problem with your idle air control valve.  Since you are only having problems when the vehicle is at idle I would take a look at your IAC.  It is located on the throttle body and is usually held on by two screws.  When the IAC starts to go bad you will have problems with the vehicle when idling.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

'98 Lexus ES300 Won't Start--But Has New Battery!


If your is exhibiting the same signs as a dead battery it really sounds like your alternator is bad. If you are handy, you can remove the alternator and take it to an autoparts store like autozone and they will test it for you. This is not a hard job to do, usually 2 electrical connections, 3-5 mounting bolts and you have to pop the belt off. Just reverse it to install a new one. Good luck! - Nick
