Lexus rx300 ...turn key and get "dead zone"... Keep doing it and eventually turns over just fine

Asked by Apr 06, 2015 at 02:37 PM about the 2000 Lexus RX 300 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Was told there is a short wire harness
behind key ignition that is typical problem.
Is that so and if it is what is it referred as?

1 Answer

I looked at at least 4 websites and no mention of ignition or wiring harness being a problem, common or otherwise. The main complaint is the transmission, and not many of those. Here is just one, for more do a Google search for "2000 Lexus RX 300 Problems" http://www.carcomplaints.com/Lexus/RX_300/2000/
