Anyone having this problem should be aware that there is a second cigarette lighter inside the bottom of the console. You should check to see if that unit is working or not as well. If both units are out, you could have a bigger problem. You wouldn't want to replace the lighter unit and have it still not work.

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)

SOURCE: '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

I just changed the cabin filter of my ES300. I found the instructions on the manual, under airconditioning and audio. It's pretty easy to do. I bought the filter from Kragen's for $21.95.

My Son has a 95 es300, the amp for it is located under the front passenger seat. The easiest way to access it is to remove the 4 bolts holding the seat down, and remove the seat. Takes about 5 minutes

I'm experiencing a hesitation or jumping during acceleration between 35 and 45 mph on my 2004 outlander it has 129000 miles I've ruled out transmission problems and no codes or warning lights are given...


I am having the same problem but it only happens to me when the car engine is cold. This does not happen when the car has been on for a while. My solution is that I warm up the car for about 20 minutes before driving and my car works fine.

Added to my problem, when I press the gas, it asks like it's choking and I have to press through it, flooring the gas, to which it accelerates too much. It's ok when no in traffic. Also, when I stop the car idles really low and acts like it wants to shut off.
