Car will not start, but starter has a continuous sound.

Asked by Apr 22, 2015 at 03:25 PM about the 2010 Lexus RX 350 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Fairly new battery, nothing was left on and now it will not start, but when I press the
starter button, I hear the starter trying to start with a continueous sound. The brake pedal
is almost all the way down. If I get it towed, won't the brakes burn up?

Sounds like possible starter relay failure.
