I have a 2005 Lexus RX330 its a great car.. Runs wonderful.. today I went to the store and it ran fine.. When I got home and cut off the car.. I restarted it to check because it was making a strange noise.. it wont start... Its not the battery already had it checked at Auto Zone and Walmart and they both said the battery is fine.. That and my lights, Horn. Radio etc all work... could this be the starter? I was thinking it was the alternator but the guy at Auto zone said if it was the alternator it would have drained the battery.. He said it sounds like the starter? ANY ONE CAN HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????
Lights, radio and horn are working, so it might not be the battery. Does it crank? If not, if it does not give any sign, it could be the starter. It happened to me very far from home and I did not need a new starter. Just the brushes.
