Question about 1999 Lexus Gs 300
Assuming you don't have loose or dirty connections to the battery, then it is most likely your starter. Some auto parts stores can test it on the car. I had the same problem a few years ago, it would start fine when cold but if it sat less than about an hour, it would act like a dead battery, but would jumpstart fine. I had replaced the starter only about a year before, so I was sure it was OK. Ended up replacing both battery and alternator before finally replacing the starter.
When the starter is hot, it is not as strong.
If it won't start after sitting for a day or two, sometimes it is a trunk or dome light that stays on and drains the battery, but that is not your problem.
