2010 Lexus RX 350 wouldn’t start after sitting for ten days

Car is stationed for a good 10 days while I was using my other car. When I press
the ignition button the car makes a Cranking noise but could not start and all the lights on the dashboard come on including the battery light. Also, since I bought the car,I never change the battery.

I change batteries proactively at 3-5 years. A new fully charged battery should easily hold its charge for ten days.

You probably answered your own question. I suggest a battery and charging system test.

If you hear the cranking noise but it doesn’t start, the battery is strong enough. You may have low fuel pressure and volume. Bring fuel and pressure to the engine before you turn the key all the way to Start: turn the key to Run, wait a few seconds, then back to Off, then back to Run. Do this several times and then turn the key all the way to Start.
