Gs300 Will Not Start

Recommended Posts

Parked up on Friday, went to start it on Saturday and it was completely dead.

Battery it seems had packed up completely.

Fitted a new Battery and it will not start. Everything operates, engine turns over quickly but not as much as a cough.

Is there something I should do? As the Battery has been totally disconnected do I have to reset something? I have tried locking and opening the car several times ( even with the key in). I have floored the throttle in case it has flooded but nothing. I need help quick or I do not get to work tomorrow!!!!!!

Yes, leave the key in the ignition and turn it to the 2nd position (the one where all the dash lights come on) for 6 mins, then it will start

There is a God and a Lexus Guru and I am not sure who to thank the most. Car fired up immediately, brilliant.

Question perplexing me now is ;- Why 6 mins?

Many many thanks.

It just is. Perhaps it's 5 minutes, but we're told to count 6 just to make sure!

Stops someone hacking the immobiliser I suppose. Gotta sit there like a lemon for 6 minutes before it'll go anywhere.
