Lexus ES: If the 12-volt battery is discharged

The following procedures may be used to start the hybrid system if the 12-volt battery is discharged.

You can also call your Lexus dealer or a qualified repair shop.

Restarting the hybrid system

If you have a set of jumper (or booster) cables and a second vehicle with a 12- volt battery, you can jump start your vehicle using the following procedure.

1. Confirm that the electronic key is being carried.

When connecting the jumper (or booster) cables, depending on the situation, the alarm may activate and doors locked.

  1. Exclusive jump starting terminal (your vehicle)
  2. Positive (+) battery terminal (second vehicle)
  3. Negative (-) battery terminal (second vehicle)
  4. Solid, stationary, unpainted metallic point away from the exclusive jump starting terminal and any moving parts as shown in the illustration

5. Start the engine of the second vehicle.

Increase the engine speed slightly and maintain at that level for approximately 5 minutes to recharge the 12-volt battery of your vehicle.

6. Open and close any of the doors of your vehicle with the power switch off.

7. Maintain the engine speed of the second vehicle and start the hybrid system of your vehicle by turning the power switch to ON mode.

8. Make sure the "READY" indicator comes on. If the indicator does not come on, contact your Lexus dealer.

9. Once the vehicle's hybrid system has started, remove the jumper cables in the exact reverse order from which they were connected.

10. Close the exclusive jump starting terminal cover, and reinstall the fuse box cover to its original position.

Once the hybrid system starts, have the vehicle inspected at your Lexus dealer as soon as possible.

■Starting the hybrid system when the 12- volt battery is discharged The hybrid system cannot be started by push-starting.

■When the 12-volt battery is removed or discharged

■When removing the 12-volt battery terminals When the 12-volt battery terminals are removed, the information stored in the ECU is cleared. Before removing the 12- volt battery terminals, contact your Lexus dealer.

■Charging the 12-volt battery The electricity stored in the 12-volt battery will discharge gradually even when the vehicle is not in use, due to natural discharge and the draining effects of certain electrical appliances. If the vehicle is left for a long time, the 12-volt battery may discharge, and the hybrid system may be unable to start. (The 12-volt battery recharges automatically while the hybrid system is operating.)

■When removing the 12-volt battery terminals Always remove the negative (-) terminal first. If the positive (+) terminal contacts any metal in the surrounding area when the positive (+) terminal is removed, a spark may occur, leading to a fire in addition to electrical shocks and death or serious injury.

■Avoiding 12-volt battery fires or explosions Observe the following precautions to prevent accidentally igniting the flammable gas that may be emitted from the 12- volt battery:

■12-volt battery precautions The 12-volt battery contains poisonous and corrosive acidic electrolyte, while related parts contain lead and lead compounds.

Observe the following precautions when handling the 12-volt battery:

■After recharging the 12-volt battery Have the 12-volt battery inspected at your Lexus dealer as soon as possible. If the 12-volt battery is deteriorating, continued use may cause the 12-volt battery to emit a malodorous gas, which may be detrimental to the health of passengers.

■When exchanging the 12-volt battery


■When handling jumper cables When connecting the jumper cables, ensure that they do not become entangled in the cooling fan or engine drive belt.

■To prevent damaging the vehicle The exclusive jump starting terminal is to be used when charging the 12-volt battery from another vehicle in an emergency.

It cannot be used to jump start another vehicle.
