Question about 2000 Lexus ES 300
After I start mt es300 I can hear the starter whinning as it tries to keep up with the engine. It appears that the selonoid is remaing energized after I release the key from the start position. I replaced the starter with a new one and it did not fix the problem. Is there a elay or other component I should be looking for or is this possibly the ignition switch itself?
i have a brand new battery in a 1993 lexus es 300 the horn blows but lights will not come on neither will it start ive tried twisting the wires and taping the starter still will not start.

You most likely have a short in the wiring to the starter.
Last time I saw something like that a vehicle's exhaust headers created heat which eventually melted the wire's insulation and several of the wires were exposed and shorting on each other and the ground of the vehicle. If possible, get the car on a lift and inspect your starters wiring....
Hope this helps...
