Question about 2004 Lexus RX 330

1 Answer

My 2004 Lexus RX 330 has 105,000 miles and has recently not started twice. I had the battery jumped and it cranked right up so I charged the battery to a full charge, The next day, the car cranked right up and I drove it off and on during the day. Later in in the evening, it would not crank again. The lights would come on but nothing else worked. Again I received a jump start and it cranked right up. Does this sound like I need a new battery?

Sounds more like the Alternator or Voltage regulator is not charging the battery correctly. Have the Alternator checked. If you remove it and take it to Auto Zone or Advance Auto they should be able to test it for you.

Hello, I have a 2008 Lexus RX350. I was sick and did not drive my car for a month. Battery was dead, jump started few time to drive. The last time I jump started it came up with the VSC light, engine


Hi
first I hope that you are well now
did you replaced the battery?
if yes, do this procedure and your car will be drivable.
switch ignition ON then OFF 10 times writhing10 seconds ( in total)
then switch ignition ON and leave it for 1 minute then you start the engine.
if you did not replace the battery yet, better you change it first

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared. Pictured is a starter relay that is seperate of the starter, on models with starter and relay mounted together, its very similar.

I have a 1994 Lexus LS400 and I have changed the battery twice. The first battery was charged and the car ran fine for a few months. The last one that I put in the car is not ever a month old and it is...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Something is draining the battery, eventually killing it. Have you had starting problems in the past? Is the car cranking? Have you checked anything, such as alternator, terminals?

My lexus rx300 new belts are squealling,battery light on,


as the a/c motor is a pump (resistance to turning),if the belt is not adjusted correctly(too loose)it will squeel,and the alternator will not produce enough power to keep the battery charged up.you should always retension the belts after about 1k/1 month after fitting new.
adjust so that the longest run of the belt, between pulleys, has 1/2"flex
