Customer Question

I have a 2000 lexus GS300 it spins but won't start. We put the scanner tool on it but the computer isn't working (wouldn't even light up). I changed the abs trc computer and it's still not reading anything. Also the dash lights are not working.
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Have you tested the dashboard light bulbs?
Customer: I have checked and changed almost all the fuses. I haven't tested the dash bulbs. Also the cigarette lighter is not working and I have changed the fuse to no avail.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Changed fuses, some things started working like horn and dome lights. The fuel door and trunk switch is not working either.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Not at the time.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lexus Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
