Does it still have a warranty on it? If so I would use that while you got it, and get it fixed free of charge. There is probably a cosmetic plastic cover hiding the alternator. However if you locate the belts than it will lead directly to the alternator.

Hey Guys, The problem is that the 12V battery is low or dead. Having the battery replaced will fix this issue. (I have the same vehicle, had the same problem, and this was the fix)

Hi, you have done something that is not recommended. Avoid disconnecting the battery because it erases the system info that operates like our brain of the car. There may be shortcuts but I recon you going to a dealer and reloading the system info. If your battery is low it is a very good move to replace with a new one before it is too late. It is a common problem with Lexus RX H.

I have a Lexus Rx400h, the engine won't start. the lights, including dashboard lights, aircon, radio are on, just won't go to ready and start


Can you ensure the car is in park?
Move lever to D and then back into Park and see what happens.
I have heard with this particular model, we have the environmentally unfriendly RX 330, that the batteries lack of charge may play havock with the electrics in these cars.
I religously charge my battery every six months with a smart charger so its always in peak, I also find a quick zap at the first cold snap of autumn / winter gives us trouble free motoring.

Check smog controls. Smell indicates sulfur. Usually smog muffler.

Same symptoms, sulfur smell + battery problems on 2001 Durango


possible voltage regulator is faulty (in the alternator) and boiling the battery. Since the battery has sulphuric acid in it, that would give you the sulpher smell. Get your mechanic to test the voltage/amps output from the alternator.

2006 Toyota 4Runner Sulfur smell


I noticed going from a Higher Grade gasoline as well as making sure I change my motor oil on a regular basis (3,000-5,000 mi)to solve this problem. When the car isn't driven at a high RPM for a while, and you go to a quick acceleration it causes this smell.
