Agreed!
Try to always remember that prior to putting car into park, leave wheels aligned straight. And try to keep wheels off of any objects, like holes, curbs, or any other protruding item that could put pressure on the steering column.
in regards to the previous answer, it will be a very hard attempt at turning the steering wheel, if in fact there actually is pressure on the steering assembly or axle, sometimes a second person could be useful... As one person using two hands turning the steering wheel, the other person can turn the ignition key. Good luck.

Sometimes when the car is parked with the wheels turned to one side, it puts pressure on the key.
Try turning the steering wheel a little more each way, while turning the key, to release the pressure.
Hope this helps.

you need a scan tool to do the job. either take it to the Lexus dealership or call up your local locksmiths, a lot of them can program remotes for less than the dealer.

Hey Guys, The problem is that the 12V battery is low or dead. Having the battery replaced will fix this issue. (I have the same vehicle, had the same problem, and this was the fix)

Neither mine nor my wife's key would turn the ignition on our 2006 rx400h.


Did it work prior? Did both keys at one time, work with the same ignition switch? If now, both keys are not turning ignition switch, then your ignition switch has now possibly failed. It's possible to
he little tumblers with in the key/lock mechanism, have failed?
try injecting some Graphite into the keyhole. That is a product specifically designed for locks, or any hole that the key is inserted into.
what many do not realize, is that graphite should be the only product injected into these type of holes. Reason being... Is that any other spray type of lubricant, acts like a magnet for dirt, collects dust dirt and creates a sludgy grime within the keyhole.
good luck.

Can you ensure the car is in park?
Move lever to D and then back into Park and see what happens.
I have heard with this particular model, we have the environmentally unfriendly RX 330, that the batteries lack of charge may play havock with the electrics in these cars.
I religously charge my battery every six months with a smart charger so its always in peak, I also find a quick zap at the first cold snap of autumn / winter gives us trouble free motoring.

Ignition key will not turn in my 2006 durango


You might have a worn out key and/or ignition lock cylinder. OR, you might have the steering column locked. Try turning the wheel hard to the left while turning the key, and then turning the wheel hard to the right and turn the key. Best of luck!

I couldn't find the ALTERNATOR in my car ,my car is LEXUS RX400h 2008


Does it still have a warranty on it? If so I would use that while you got it, and get it fixed free of charge. There is probably a cosmetic plastic cover hiding the alternator. However if you locate the belts than it will lead directly to the alternator.
