Question about 1996 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

Hi. I have a 1996 Lexus ES300. Last night I had it in park with the hazards on. When I got back in the car and tried to start it, there was what seemed like an electric short and the car wouldn't start. Everything went dead. I took out the key and turned off the hazards and when I turned the key, it worked fine. Any ideas? I'm about to drive 5 hours and am a little leary of driving it.

Check the connections at the battery. Sounds like there will be corrosion. Take off the terminals and clean them with baking soda and water and put them back on tightly.

1996 Lexus ES300 Has Sprung a leak in the power steering

My 2005 ES330 had to have new hoses last year. It was losing a little fluid and I was topping it up once a month when the power steering started making whining noises. Eventually, I was topping it up one a week, and I had used a full bottle of fluid, I bought another and booked it in for the next week. You just need hoses. Dealership charged me about $375, but I did get to borrow an LX350.

Car doesnt start have to shift to neutaral

The switch on the transmission that tells the computer that it is in park is bad. It could be that or you need a mechanic to reset the code in the computer. Your best bet is to have it looked over, but it only could be one of those two things. Hope this helps.

No turn signals or hazards

I had an aftermarket stereo system put in my Lexus ES300. When I left circuit city I had no blinkers(hazards)-same harness. The wiring harness was disconnected.Either that or a fuse.
