  1. no luck yet. Left it with the mechanic. Hv battery was around 58% but it slowly drops if u leave the car on. As said there is spark from the plugs its just then engine not turning over... yeah, i did push the throttle
  2. yeah, i did push the throttle body butterfly open and close to see if its sticky. Havent checked the maf. fuel was sitting for over 6months i filled the car with Brand new fuel not sure just the other day so not sure maybe the lines still have old fuel?
  3. Update: got a new hybrid battery from a 2010 gs450h Part number slightly different but everything looks identical. Plugged it all in now im getting fail to start engine code as it seems like the mg1 is trying to start the engine but it cant. before playing anymore we decided to stop as we didnt want to drain a good hv battery.
  4. Update: So it was the Dc-Dc converter that was the problem. The car turns over now but shakes violently and then stalls. Seems like doing this a few times has drained the HV battery. Also seems like i have a few more dead cells to replace. Anyone know why it will turn over and stall? The first time it was on for a good 10 sec shaking. We checked the fuel pump and 1 of the spark and could see spark to the engine and fuel.
  5. both the relays only had 4 pins so cant be those relays in the junction box. I did open up the junction box and reassemble it. It consist of thick metal connectors/joiners maybe a pin fell out? or something got loose? mmmm
  6. Hi John, When i removed the junction box there were only 2 relays? Both clicked and seemed fine. Do you know where the 3rd one is?
  7. Had a quick look now that i've charged the weak batteries my volts are all good on the modules. Also noticed i forgot to plug 1 set of wires in the fusebox relay inside the HV battery. Hence those errors. But i currently have a P0AE6 - 773 looks like its either the wiring or the dc invert-er inside the engine bay has died? Or is there an internal fuse inside it that i can check? looks like its screwed and glued on. attached is the new log Store DTC Printing(S821-05) (1).pdf
  8. Hi John, P0AC2 does look odd. I cant see why it would read -200amps? Unless something shorted? Looking at the codes P0AC2 it isn't a critical code? Judging by a prius manual as i have no access to a Lexus one. I am assuming its similar? I'll give the relays a play tomorrow. See how i go. Yes, i did notice that. Must be one of the new modules that i didnt balance as it was reading decent volts. Might pull battery out and charge this up. I have reset the codes multiple times but they always come back. I organised a tow in 3 days so if i don't figure it out, its off to my local mechanic that has the same car so he might be able to swap parts off his car to test.
  9. Hi John, P0157 is probably due to a new auxiliary battery without a temp sensor so that should be fine. P0AC2 is this the main HV battery or the Auxiliary battery? or could it be one of the battery modules battery connection that i may have not screwed on tight enough or too loose? P0ADC/POAE0 i am thinking its either the relay is gone/fuse block in the HV battery is dead hence why it is not giving the traction battery any power. I tested the fuse inside the fuse block in the HV battery it was good. But was unable to test the relays. I have checked the HV safey link fuse and triple checked the safely link orange connector is in the home position fully slid across to the other side.
  10. Hi SpeedyGee, Yes, it was brave of me. But i took a gamble as i picked up the car way under market price. Plus it was a simple job removing a few modules and charging the rest upto spec. Yes, locked the orange safety plug and the pushed it sideways to lock it in.
  11. Hi All, New to the Hybrid scene. Short story is i bought a hybrid car that wasnt starting to begin with. Previous owner said the car was in storage for over 6 months so the HV battery was reading less than 2v so the car wouldnt start. Anyways. I took on the Challenge and pulled the HV battery out and reconditioned them also replaced 3 modules as they weren't holding charge. Problem when i hooked it all up. I got a p0ae6 error. So i pulled the battery out and had a look at all the connectors and relays and reassembled it. Now i am getting P0AC2, P0ADC and P0AE0. Looking at these codes from a Prius manual hoping its the same it says the car should still be able to get into ready mode? but obviously it doesn't =( Attached is the logs/data i got from the Tech stream. Any help or suggestions is welcome Live DTC Printing(S821-02).pdf
