I'm sorry, is it with or without smart key?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Is with smart key
Lexus Mechanic: Boxer54, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago
Ok. Do you have more than one key and are they both with you in the car when it won't start? If not, have you separated them at least 10 feet from the car and tried the other key? Do the wireless door lock functions work normally? When you enter the vehicle and step on the brake, what color is the light on the start button?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I only have one key
Lexus Mechanic: Boxer54, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago
Making sure the light is green, what happens when you press the start button?

Lexus Mechanic: Boxer54, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago
Do you hear the clicking inside the car or outside under the hood?
Ask Your Own Lexus Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I here the click outside under the hood
Lexus Mechanic: Boxer54, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago
Ok, your battery voltage is low. I understand the battery has been replaced but that could mean that the battery is bad off the shelf (I have seen it), or there is a draw from the car draining the battery. I recommend trying to jump start the car, and if that works take the battery to be charged fully and tested. If it is bad, you should be able to get a replacement from where you got the battery originally.

you think is the battery?
Lexus Mechanic: Boxer54, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago
Low voltage in the battery. Could be a bad battery, or a drain from the vehicle with the key off. Most likely it is the battery itself.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Ok
Lexus Mechanic: Boxer54, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago
Thats the starting point, to charge and test the battery. IF that tests good, your starter will need to be diagnosed.
