I am not at the vehicle. I’m attempting to help my elderly father who is the owner and changed the battery out. He has changed many batteries but never on a Lexus.
Lexus Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 8 months ago

Ok usually if it were an alarm system or immobilizer it would crank but not start , but in your case it is not cranking right now . If this is the case was this the problem before he replaced the battery?

The battery was definitely dead, he had it tested. The original issue was definitely the battery. I’m afraid he may have blown a fuse during installation, is that possibility?
Also, courious if there Is a required reset? Or any other possibilities?
Lexus Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 8 months ago

as I said before it may need the immobilizer to be reset if it don't start but right now it's not cranking so lets get that working first.Yes if hooked up the wrong way it would blow one or more fuseable links. these are the high ampere ones that supply power to a large circuit' Usually the ALT one
