2008 Lexus RX350 Question: Car won't start up, makes noise, gas gage is stuck on empty

Drove the car on Friday, no problems, parked it in the garage, in the morning on Tuesday, turned the ignition, the car starts making loud noises,but doesn't get the engine going. All the lights on the dash board light up and all the arrows start moving, except for one. The gas gage is stuck on empty even though there is gas in the tank. Checked if any of the lights caused the battery to die, looks like all the lights were turned off, so don't think it's the battery. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

    Turn the headlights on and try to start the engine again. If the lights go really dim, then the battery is probably too dead to start the car. Wayne

    My BMW did that one week and started fine for a week then wouldnt start again. It seemed like it was out of gas even though I knew it had a full tank. Finally it wouldnt start one night. I ended up replacing my fuel pump. Very expensive

    Good Luck,
