Question about 1997 Lexus ES 300
After charging my battery I mistakenly placed hot lead first casuing negative to spark. Starter engages but engine doesn't fire. Interior lights come on when I open door but windows, radio, seats and headlights do not work. Only instrument light which works is the airbag light which now doesn't go off at all, even with key out of ignition. Obviously "cooked" something. Any help?

there are a few diodes in the electrical system that have been blown. Some are in the dash and some are in the different control modules in the car. Your insurance should pay for this problem.

I have the same problem. Have you checked the fuses and had a diagnostic electrical check? I am going to have a diagnostic check Monday, but from what I have read so far it may be the circuit board. I have read this is a very common problem in these vehicles between 90-98.
