WONT START

2000 Lexus LS 400 • 120,000 miles

Car was lying up for maybe 8 months including over the winter. Was driving perfect but now its cranking but just wont start, fuses seem to be fine could it be the fuel pump? Please advise.

Have you checked for spark?Is the security light on or flashing?You will have to get a fuel pressure gauge to test the fuel pressure. Do you have any codes in the computer?

Thanks for replying,
security light was flashing but changed a fuse and is now ok.
The fuel doesnt seem to be getting to the engine and cant get a live feed from the pump.

If the security light is on solid or flashing it wont start. What fuse did you change?You will only have power to the fuel pump for a couple of seconds when turning the key to the run position and while cranking to start the car also while the engine is running. Do you have spark?
