I recently purchased an IS350. The car was purchased as a pleasure car and I only drive it once or twice a week.
If the car sits for more than a couple of days, the battery is usually dead.
I have verified that the alternator is pushing above 14v and delivers adequate amperage for charging
The battery (less than a month old), when charged, passes a carbon pile load test to >400CCA
I have checked to ensure the dome lights, trunk lamp and all exterior lights go out as designed.
I have seen that others have had similar issues but never saw any resolutions.
The only operation that I have not performed is a parasitic load test as I haven't found the proper procedure and specs for an "acceptable" at rest load.
Is this an issue IS350s are prone to, can anyone offer any insight/experience with an identical issue.
