Lexus IS250: Last night I got a flat. When the tow truck arrived,

Customer Question

Last night I got a flat. When the tow truck arrived, we went to start the car and it would not. The start button light will only turn amber, never green, Windows won't work, neither will the radio or power seats, etc.

Hi. Have you tried jump starting the car yet?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes the tow truck driver tried jumping it. It didn't work.

Ok. I do not see how this would be related to a flat tire. But the first thing to check is the negative battery cable. Make sure it has a good connection. Lexus does have a service bulletin on replacing the bolt on the negative cable for a no start condition.

If you check the battery cable and it is ok, the problem may be with the push button start switch. Lexus has an updated switch for a no start condition.

Also please check all the fuses in the fuse panel under the hood.
