well it is a brand new battery, but no i havent tried to jump it yet with the new battery in it. i will check the battery to see if there is a charge on it, but there is no reset to be done after a new battery is put in on this vehicle correct?

alright, now i checked the battery and it has a full charge. i took the cover off the fuse box under the hood to the right of the battery and it smells like something burnt in there. i dont have my owners manual to show what fuses are what. anyone know where to find which fuse controls ingnition or something with starting the car. i would pull them out one by one but the car is outside and cant see anything. thanks

I thought they were labelled on mine. But if you burned out a fuse or relay, you will find that in the same engine compartment fusebox. Bummer.
My manual is for an RX300. I doubt their in the same order (by number) but my owners manual shows one of the small 20 amp fuses "starting system" called "AM2" and a square 50 amp (relay, I'm pretty sure, but the manual lists it as a fuse) labelled "starting system" called "Main" in the engine compartment fuse box. Sniff those out, first. Good luck.
And careful with those jumper connections...

if it's not the battery, then the next culprit on the list would be the starter...

Does your car have a security system? It may need to be reset after a battery discharge.
