Question about 1999 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

My battery loss charge

I purchased a battery from Sears 2 years ago. I have had to go back to Sears twice times. Both times I was told by Sears that it was a bad battery. It is happening again. I only have 78,000 on my 1999 ES300. My mechanic thinks it is not the right battery. What is the proper battery??. If it is my car, what could it be???? The alternator was tested by Sears the last times. It was not the alternator according to Sears. My battery cables are new. Someone please help.

They probably had a series of batteries that were bad, and unfortunately, you got 2 of them. Take a credit (as it must still be under warranty) and get another one, or buy another brand. I don't think it has anything to do with your car.

I have a Scion tc 2005....engine did not start once about 5 months ago...I was waiting 10 minutes and started w/o any other problems until today when it happened again, but this time did not start after...

first if they did check, it was after you had driven there allowing the alternator to put a charge back into the battery, you need to have the battery tested before you had it jumped, this would have told them that it is bad, most car battery only last for 3 years, even if you had a die hard from sears, another way to test it is to have a cell test they will put a load box on the battery and it will tell them what cell is going bad

It is a mechanical switch so all you purchased can be from a bad batch of them.

I have replaced the alternator in our windstar twice in the last several years I had to replace the windshield wiper motor 3 months ago. My battery is 2 years old. Now the alternator & battery are dead...

well the good thing is if there is a spike the battery will take it before other electrical componets check in the distribution box for bad relays & fuses

My 97 mazda protege Still won't start

Do you also have a problems with the check engine light coming on?
There seem to be some common problums with this car.
CAT converter going bad, Yours has two.
O2 sensor going bad, This will not make it not start.
Have you ever spilled a drink near the cup holder?
This is where the circuit board that runs the car is located.
Over all its a great car, but repairs tend to be expensive.


#1 Don't go to Sears for other than general maintenance. You have DEALER related problums.

#2 Don't waste your time with any lawyer, I could easily defend Sears. Was there intent to screw you over? Not for $200. Sears did all they were equipped to do to help you .

Sorry, Not the best news But,
Hope this tip helps.

2002 Camry shut down while idle

I have 2002 Toyota Camry also and mine did the same thing. I ended up having to put a battery in the vehicle 2 weeks later so you may want to get that tested. Mechanic told me it was the alternator but I tested the battery at Auto Zone and the battery was bad. I did this a year ago and has not happened again.

Shakes and vibration

i had the alignment done about six months ago at the dealership. Would they have been able to align the car if something was bad? Not sure how they deemed the new tires bad, but they said they moved the tires from left to right and front to back and could control the shimmy and shake. this has went on for about a year. I dont believe the new tires the first time were bad, i believe the rim was bent. I dont know what to do. These tires have about 10000 miles on them, have been balanced twice, a rim was replaced due to them saying it was bent, but yet, the vibration starts at about 55 and gets worse as you gain speed. Can even feel it in the passenger seat in the front as well. Steering wheel shakes. You can actually see your hand shake while you are driving it, but then at times, it seems to go away and start again. Thanks for any suggestions.
