Lexus gs430: , My Lexus gs430 2006 is doing funny things

Customer Question

My Lexus gs430 2006 is doing funny things when I try and start it.
I push the button and sometimes it starts straight away, sometimes it starts in about a second or two, sometimes it makes no noise and wont start at all, sometimes it makes a click noise and the starts after that, it got a new battery 2 weeks ago and everything else seems fine.
