I bought an 01 Is300, it been seating for 1 year before I caught it someone changed the starter because that’s what they said it was wrong with it, the person told me it just needed the 120A fuse bought that car didn’t turn on, changed battery didn’t start, went to autozone to see if the starter was good and it was, my lights turn on when I put the key in but it won’t crank and doesn’t even make a sound, only a really small click which comes from the fuse box but that’s it....PLEASE SOMONE HELP!!!!

update: so I got it to want to turn on but not with the key, I plug the voltage meter and put it in the starter fuse and it wants to turn on, but when I put the key in it doesn’t. It’s kinda weird

That’s what I was thinking but the dashboard lights are not flickering and the key doesn’t get stuck when trying to turn it

It is the electrical contacts behind the key. Not the cylinder part. The dash is one curcuit the starter is on another. Plust the solenoid on the starter needs more power.
