Customer Question
Had a flat tire...

Had a flat tire. Changed the tire. While changing the tire, all of the windows went down on their own but, the car wasn't started. After changing the tire, I tried starting the car and everything went black. Tried boosting the car off and nothing. No lights, no click when trying to start it, nothing.

Mechanic's Assistant: When it comes to this particular vehicle, have flat tires been a problem in the past?

I ran over something

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Lexus?

2008 Lexus LS460

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

The only thing I've tried is boosting it off. All of this JUST happened so, I haven't tried anything else. I don't even know what else to try.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's pretty much it. I ran over something last night, I was near the house so, I made it home. The tire went completely flat. Got up this morning and the car started just fine. Changed the tire and now it won't start. No lights are on. Completely dead.
