I allowed my '97 Lexus es300 to sit in my front yard from Feb-May of this year.
Obviously the battery died, and my buddy and I went to jump it… It was 11:30 at night, we were both tired and accidentally ran my car through a series.( + to - )( - to +). I went to autozone and got a new battery, hooked it up… and only certain electrical devices worked. I went under the hood and checked the fuses, and of course the main 100A fuse blew. I replaced it, and everything but the radio turns on.
I now try to start the car, the engine cranks, but wont turn over. I put new fuel in the tank, and when my ear is pressed to the tank while the car is cranked I can hear the fuel pump whirring. While cranking the engine, I don’t smell any gas or fumes under the hood. I’ve tried several times to crank while pressing the gas pedal, but to no avail (over the course of a few hours…)
Could it still be an issue with fuel or is something else more sinister at play? My next guess is an electrical relay issue, seeing as I fried the 100A fuse.
Any advice on this issue would be so greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advanced.
