93 Lexus GS300 Two months ago while driving the red battery light on my dashboard lit up, and my car stereo and powersteering went out, but my car continued running and I was able to drive the car a mile home. The next day the car ran fine. The day after the issue happened again. This time my car died while parked running, and I couldn't get the car to jump off. I took the battery and had it tested, the said it was bad and sold me a new battery. Well, it worked for 3 days then the same thing went down. Couldn't get a jump. They replaced the battery for me, and tested out my alternate, batter, and starter. All tested out fine, they concluded I had a bad ground somewhere. I replaced my negative battery cable because it was corroded pretty bad, and this seemed to remedy my problem as the car ran fine for a month. Well, the car has failed again. I don't have the money to take it to a mechanic right away, and I feel like this could be something simple. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.
