Parked and will not start. Turns over fine. Has gas.
From what I can learn on the net, there is a fuse for the fuel pump # 13- 30 amp.
There are two connecting wires that my be corroded underneath and have lost thrie contact.
The fuel pump is in that tank.
I am not a mechanic, but would like to try to solve the problem myself, therefore I hope someone can walk me thru the checkout proceedure and save me some money. Hoping it isn;t the fuel pump $ 386.00, plus the price of a mechanic.
Thanks for any input available.

My car would not start. Replaced the battery and coil pack. Problem later diagnosed as a bad crankshaft sensor. Replaced it but did not disconnect hot post on battery. Upon completion of replacing part, car still will not start. Could the new cs sensor have shorted out or what else could be wrong. Please help!
#777 of 802 Lexus 300 sarting problems
Apr 10, 2010 (2:43 pm)
I took my Lexus 300 ES in to have a transmittion replaced. My Lexus being in good shape I never had a problem with starting the car, or any other engin related problems.Then Approximately two days later, when I, got the car back from having had a transmittion replaced. The following morning, the Lexus would crank, but would not fire. Please, can anyone help eliminate some of the possibilities of what the problem could be?

Take it back to the guys who did your transmission (transmittion). It is very likely they didn't connect some wiring back up tightly. They should fix it for you.
They will probably have to send a tow truck to tow it back in.

My daughter bought this car on thursday, midnight on friday, i get a call that it wont start...can hear the fuel pump, and that is it...nothing. If it is the security system, I should at least hear the starter, right? This car is going back to the dealer on monday, but the warrenty and insurance towing is only like 25 miles...It so happens the car is 100 miles away from the dealership. After just buying the car, she doenst have the money! I drove this car on three differnt occasions the last month, we really checked this car out. It has to be something so simple, I am just missing it...

You might check for a defective or misaligned neutral safety switch (automatic transmission) or a defective or misaligned clutch safety switch (manual transmission). You can also try to start in neutral and see if that works (for the automatic).
And no, you won't hear the starter if this is a security system problem. You might try another ignition key if you have duplicates.

This started out as an intermittent problem Now it is permanent. The buzzer for the open door works when key is inserted but no other dash lights or indications. At first you would turn the key to on and the dash lights and gauges would work but once key was turned to start everything died. Everything stays dead but could be reset by disconnecting negative battery cable. Reconnect negative battery cable and dash lights work until key is turned to start. Also now the problem can not be reset. No dash lights or guages no matter what I do. I have replaced the ingnition switch, neutral safety switch and had the battery and starter tested at auto zone. Both the battery and the starter checked out fine. No ideas on what else to check.
