I purchased a new battery for my Lexus es300 '03. Once I start it 10 seconds later it shuts off. The tow driver says it may be locked up. Possibly a belt smelled like it was burning.

Have belts and pulleys inspected for damage. Probably going to find a locked up pulley, alternator or ac compressor.
