When I noticed that the engine light was on, I checked to see if I had left any light on in the car. Brand new battery and new battery tested fine.
I thought it was the problem with battery. The dealer and manufacturer were not notified of the failure. They changed the alternator which they did under the extended warranty that I had on the car. I could not find anything. Other manufacturers are subject to parts problems, too. It has always seemed logical to me to get the biggest battery that will fit the holder.
The battery most likely was all right. Apply slight pressure on the gas pedal to keep the rev up, place foot on brake and place car in neutral. You may have to rotate and flex the blade to make enough clearance for the hook to pass through. The tow truck driver said it had a dry cell and showed me the dry leaked acid. The depth and height are almost equal.
I felt the acid must have leaked out before the 24 months and Lexus should have charged me less or replaced it free. Where warrranty is concerned, even if the battery had been defective, noticing it out of the warrranty period makes it non warrantable and you would have to pay for it. Take foot off the gas and let car come to an idle. Any suggestion on what could be the cause for the battery indicator becoming on. It is also very easy to get the cables attached to the wrong terminals if one is not careful in buying the battery. They changed the alternator which they did under the extended warranty that I had on the car. The contact exited the vehicle, lifted the hood, and noticed flames coming from the battery.
This was due to an electrical short. Before replacing it, I would have taken it to Autozone and had a free load test done. My question is was the battery defective or just went bad.

Even local papers in my area car column, etc mentioned it occasionally. Locate and press the tab or button where the wiper blade is inserted into the hook of the wiper arm and pull wiper blade out of hook. Also, starting at 5000 miles battery had to be replaced 3 times because it died. Is this something I can keep driving with or is this another visit to the mechanic?

I will say the altenator was most likely made by Denso, which makes most parts in the Toyota and Lexus line up. Car may shut off once, but just follow the steps again. Unfortunately the default settings are no longer sufficient to keep the idle correct with it all gummed up.
Waiting for the next light to showup on the dashboard of this car. If you decide to get the 24 size, make sure it is the 24F or 24R. The leakage definitely caused the battery to fail, not because the battery went bad.
