Customer Question

I put in 3 new relays which were all the same in and replaced the theft deterant box which is the black box with the 2 orange plugs right behind the steering column, still nothing, I'm thinking I may have not replaced the correct main relay or I have a bigger problem on my hand

whats it doing or not doing?

Sorry I thought I was continuing with the same mechanic, it won't go into gear unless I push the safety theft button right above the gear shift, the power steering seems kinda tight, abs light came on and power windows and moon roof will not go up or down, last mechanic told me to replace the main relay on the fuse box by left kick panel and I replaced 3 main relays because he didn't show me a pic of what relay he was talkin about

I don't understand what you mean by left side of engine compartment, inside the car or under the hood, I don't see the fuse box that looks similar to what you showed me
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 5 months ago.

under the hood next to battery, will have a plastic cover on it

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 5 months ago.

there should only be one in the engine compartment

This is what my car looks like, what is that picture you sent me? It is not a Lexus SC400

There are two fuse panel locations. The first location is at the left front of the engine compartment. The second location is under the left side of the instrument panel. The flasher is located under the left side of the instrument panel.
