Get the check engine light scanned by a mechanic. (Some parts store will do this for free, but you may not get a good answer!) This may lead you to the issue with the running problem. Start there.

You need to find out why it shuts off. Immediately as it fails test for spark at plugs. OK? next use fuel pressure gauge to see if pressure drops just before it dies. No spark means bad coil/ignition module, crank/cam sensor. Bad fuel pressure = bad pump, filter, relay, regulator.

Have the check engine light scanned for codes related to this problem first. You may have a charging system issue causing low voltage resulting in the lights flashing/stalling.

The problem could be:

- Dirty or low engine oil
- Valve timing
- Oil control valve
- Variable Valve Timing controller assembly
- Engine Control Module (ECM)

There is an oil control valve on the head that allows oil pressure to change the cam timing. If it gets dirty or sticks, you have this error.

I just took my 2001 Lexus ES300 key apart and the battery is a CR1616 3V

You can try this, it worked on a friend of mines ES 300 with the similar problem, Disconnect the wires from the battery clean the terminals on the battery, Now instead of connecting the cables back to the battery connect the cables to each other- While the cables are connected this way make sure that they DO NOT come in contact with ANYTHING metallic on the car. Leave the cables connected this way for at least 20 minutes, then reconnect the cables back to the battery, make sure you have your radio code before you disconnect the battery,

Most likely your valve cover gaskets and the spark plug gaskets need to be replaced.. when they are old they start to deteriorate and allow oil in the spark plug.
