    You probably have a dead spot on the starter commutator. I cannot access manuals for your car, but I have posted generic starter replacement instructions here: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-start...

SOURCE: amplifier location 1993 lexus es300

My Son has a 95 es300, the amp for it is located under the front passenger seat. The easiest way to access it is to remove the 4 bolts holding the seat down, and remove the seat. Takes about 5 minutes

SOURCE: all dash warning lights came

Hatterasnc,

You're alternator has gone bad and the vehicle was running on battery power. The "clicking" sound is your now dead battery that does not have enough power to turn over the starter. You might also want to check your power steering pump for leak. This is a know problem with early LS400s and will most likey be the cause of the alternator failure. I just dropped $1050.00 to fix the very same promblems you have.

If your is exhibiting the same signs as a dead battery it really sounds like your alternator is bad. If you are handy, you can remove the alternator and take it to an autoparts store like autozone and they will test it for you. This is not a hard job to do, usually 2 electrical connections, 3-5 mounting bolts and you have to pop the belt off. Just reverse it to install a new one. Good luck! - Nick

SOURCE: HOW DO I REMOVE THE RADIO FROM MY 1997 LEXUS ES300?

If Your Looking At The Radio There Is A Black Bezel Around It. Get A Small Flat Head Screwdriver And Pry Forward On It And It Will Pop Off Then Behind It There Are Either 2 Or 4 Screws Holding The Radio In Place. Once You Remove The Screws The Radio Will Slide Toward You And Come Out.

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

My 2003 Lexus es300 has electrical problems but only on hot days above 90 degrees. When driving the electrical power fades on the dash and sometimes clicks out. When you turn the car off it will not start...


Well it sounds like you are loosing the alternator - could be the alternator itself or a connection in the harness. Things like diodes and relays can stop working in high heat conditions.
I would check the output of the alternator the next time the lights start dimming.

My 1996 lexus ES300 dash board lights are all out. How can I fix them?


This will sound crazy but it has solved the problem more times than you would believe: give the dash board a and area around it a good wack with your fist. Often the connection to the light is what starts to fail not the bulb.

1997 ES300 Trouble Starting


Sounds like a problem I had with my 2000 ES300. Cleaning out the IACV (idle air control valves?) took care of it, at least so far.
