Anyone ever change the starter battery yourself? Does the system need a reset? I am told not by one informed automotive buddy but Sears would not touch my car. I have used two Lexus OEM starter batteries and going on a 3rd in less than six years. Lexus warranted the first two and the third would be prorated but still cost me over $100! So I can get a better battery (based on my research) at Costco for $60.

busted timing belt

I have had a problem starting my hybrid about three times now. When I turn the key the "ready light" does not come on. I have taken the key out to try it again and nothing happens. After several attempts it may start or I give up and come back to it later it starts no problem. I have taken it the dealer and they can find nothing wrong of course. I have also had trouble with the key physically turning in the switch. Are the two related and if so, why didn't the dealer put two and two together. Please help!

I only have 84k miles on it. I have had it for 10 yrs now and have had all service checks, oil changed. I don't know if I should put this money into it or not? My mechanic said around 4k in repairs and he couldn't do the heat and a/c and bring to dealer. If I put this in, is the tranny going to go?

Got too close to a curb and pulled out one of the clamps that hold the bottom outside door moldings, to the door. I see that I need to remove the whole thing to get it back on, but would like the know how, so that I do not do more damage than good.

Where can I find the switch that controls the trunk light

The shifter is not locking into place. If you have your hand on the shifter while driving or driveway with your foot on the brake the shifter will slip easily into neutral but not reverse. What is this? hoping it is not related to transmision.

Problem started a few months ago and has gotten very consistent now. After driving for as little as 30 minutes, upon restart (could be minutes afterwards up to an hour), idle speed will be so low that it dies almost immediately or upon putting into reverse or drive, unless constant throttle is applied to keep it alive. If revved up to 2000 Rpm while throttle is applied idle speed corrects to proper sustainable speed and I'm able to drive off.
