Lexus Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Lexus Expert
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.
I have found out as I am helping all the customers whom have waited to long. Many no longer needed help. If you still need help let me know.
Do you know how to check fuel pressure, ignition spark, and injector pulse?
Are you planning to get someone to help you diagnose this concern since you do not work on cars?
Doesn't catch but turns over strong, could something be removed by bodyshop before dismantling few parts to prevent starting? It is very likely the collision or body shop damaged a part needed to start like wiring or the cam or crank sensor.
Could it be a key reset? A reset should not be needed. You just need to make sure the theft light is not flashing with the key on.
Can this car sense that there are missing parts and a damaged steering rack to prevent starting? The rack is not to blame and yes missing parts can cause no fuel pressure, no ignition spark, and no injector pulse. There are a ton of possible causes. We just need to be able to diagnose and figure out which of the 3 primary things needed are working and which are not.
Please make sure to rate my answer prior to logging off, as this is how I get credit for helping you. If you have not yet received 5 star excellent service from me. Please follow up so you get everything from me that you expected from the deposit you have already paid, which I get nothing of till you rate me. Rating does not close the post nor prevent replying at a later date.
Codes would help but just asking any of your friends if they know how to check the things I mentioned and can help you would do alot. Once I know what is missing I can help you diagnose that through diagnostics using a scan tool or volt/ohm meter.
I will do my best to help you get to the bottom of this.
Hello Chris here again,
I am checking in to make sure you got everything you expected from my answer. If not please reply so we can resolve your issue together.
Sorry you could not respond sooner so I could help more.
Yes I do.
You asked do I know a Lexus tech. I am one, which is what Implied. I do not know any of the other techs here. Which tech do you want and I will try to send them a message? The next person is going to ask the same questions I have. We need to know what the car is getting and what it is not to diagnose this.
