Customer Question
My car wont start...

My car wont start at all.even the gas cap button and the trunk open button on my es(###) ###-####wont work

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried silicone spray or WD-40?

No why would i try that

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

Yes i am trying .. i checked first whether it is a key fob battery issue but there is a blinking red light on key fob when I press button..the key fob wont open the car doors either

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

I tried putting the key fob near the starter button as well and pressed on breaks to start car but that did not work either..I had replaced a new battery 3 months ago also
