Starting problems on a 1999 lexus es300-161000 miles

While attempting to start the car, you get "click" like a dead battery. On the second attempt the car starts right up. I just replaced the battery. I never had this problem until Changed the battery. The mechanic said it might be the starter. But listening to it, it sounds as if key is worn and the ignition switch is not fully engaging on the first try. Any athoughts?

SOURCE: 2006 LEXUS IS 250 OR 2003 LEXUS ES300

How does the ES 300 fit your driving style?
Conservative drivers your dream come true, Smooth, comfortable and quiet, easy to control and predictable. This car is the one to beat.

Sporty drivers Electronic throttle is very responsive, handles well for a car with such a cushy ride, Not as powerful as the other cars in this class.

Fast drivers Should opt for the Adaptive Variable Suspension. The firm setting provides this car with the character you are looking for as far as handling goes, but for all around performance, you may be happier with a Lexus IS300 or maybe an Acura TL Type S.

The answer to your question - the IS-250 is a luxury model, and the IS is sporty.

Both considered in the same CLASS of vehicle - near Luxury.

Who should buy this car? A person who is looking for a mid-sized sedan that is a cut above the average sedan in styling, comfort, luxury & performance.


Thank you for using FixYa - A FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Single click? More battery is needed. Id change the battery, or slow charge it.
Might also be the security system shutting down the starter. Common on GM vehicles. Heres a link on that. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

This means you have a ground problem , either at the battery, or at fuse junction block, or at the block , follow ground cable from batt. to block and anyother ground points.(corrosion). possibly bad battery with a dead cell.

While attempting to start the car I get a "click" like a dead battery. On the second attempt the car starts right up.


Get the battery checked at any auto supply store first to measure it's cold cranking amps. Usually, in my personal experience, it's the starter on it's way out. I even took out my starter and had it tested and it tested fine. I put it back in and nothing. Convinced, I replaced it, end of problem.

No start


battery is bad! check this: when car is running the battery voltage should be at least 14.3 volts or a little higher. when engine is off battery voltage should be at least 13 volts, if the voltage going into battery is below 14 volts when running then alternator is bad. if it is ok then battery needs replaced,

This sounds like you may be fighting more than one problem at a time.
First, I would replace the main relay (often located near the fuse panel under the dash).
Next, I would check all battery connections and even though the battery is relatively new, you probably should have it load tested.
