You need a Lexus dealership or a good auto-electrician. There is likely a lot of damage including the ECU and other electrical components.

hello freddy - the good news is that your lexus has a self diagnosis system built into it. this is what you need to do.

drive to an auto zone or similar autoparts store and have them put your lexus on their computer to scan for trouble codes. they offer this as a free service. with a little luck this scan will isolate the problem and the fix will be quick and easy.

if this doesnt fix it for you get back and let me know what codes popped up.

here is a link to the lexus trouble codes so you will have added insight. good luck.

Sounds as though when your battery died the engine imobiIiser locked down.
YOU MAY HAVE TO HAVE THE CAR TOWED TO A LEXUS DEALER AND HAVE THE MASTER KEY AND OTHERS REPROGRAMMED TO THE IGNITION...BUT
If you have your wallet key as well , try taking all to the airport. HOLD the card to the dash beside the ignition for at least 20 seconds, then try turning the key several times. I haven`t done an LS but the failsafe when a remote fails is to hold the key beside the ignition for at least 20 seconds ....
Also try the lock routine, but I think the issue is in dash..security needing to reboot to your key.
My understanding is that the lock routine re initialises the lock setstings when power is restored

What could be wrong with my 2000 Mazda MPV the battery is good the dashboard lights don't turn on so it doesn't start what could be the reason


Apparently you have lost the connection between the battery and the main power wires. First check your battery cables for corrosion and tightness, if that's OK, start checking fuses. More than likely, you've blown a main fuse, but if that's the case, you may want to figure out why the fuse blew, because those don't just blow without a reason.

Replaced mega fuse now wont start


Putting reverse polarity to a battery will do more damage then blowing a fuse. Chances are you could have taken out the ECM and possibly the TCM

Got 1994 lexus both a battery hook it up and come to find out it was wrong battery . Now the car wont start did find some bad fuses i change it still wont start. Could be my promlem is the car compute


Wrong battery? What was wrong, voltage, size, terminal location. I am not familar with a Lexus does it have two batteries? If you hooked up two batteries and did something wrong, like hook them in series some way then you could have fried the computer. It is really hard to determine what problem you have. The bad fuses should tell you something what did they run? Please rate my answer.

Most cars have a emergency fuel shut off in the trunk that shuts down fuel pump when hit in the rear end. Try to push that . Or poor some fuel into injectors then see if it will turn over.

Installing seat gone wrong.


Check your large main fuses, these are block type devices.Sounds like you blew a big one.
Sometimes there is an extra set right beside the positive cable clamp.
In future disconnect the battery when working on electrical, just in case.

Battery not charging - Lexus ES300


your problem is the main fuse is blown under hood. it will be like a 100 or 120 amp fuse bolted in from sides of fuse/relay box.
