How to get antitheft of 03 Lexus GS300 to shut off
My boyfriend locked his keys in his trunk, roadside assistance came out, got the driver door open to pop the trunk, tried to pop it...wouldn't open. Got master key, tried to put it in the ignition, and the plastic top of the key broke open, so it wont turn over, got trunk open (all the while the horn keeps going off every time we open a door. Got keys out of trunk, went to start, still wont turn over, assumingly because of the antitheft. Is there a way to turn off the antitheft? Will disconnecting the battery fix the problem? Help!

Your vehicle is equipped with the Passlock theft-deterrent
system. Passlock is a passive theft-deterrent system.
Passlock enables fuel if the ignition lock cylinder is turned with a valid key. If a correct key is not used or the ignition lock cylinder
is tampered with, the fuel system is disabled and the vehicle
will not start. During normal operation, he SECURITY light
will turn off approximately five seconds after the key is turned to
RUN. If the engine stalls and the SECURITY light flashes,
wait about 10 minutes until the light stops flashing before trying
to restart the engine. Remember to release the key from START as
soon as the engine starts. If the engine does not start after
three tries, the vehicle needs service. If the engine is running and the
SECURITY light comes on, you will be able to restart the engine
if you turn the engine off. However, your Passlock system is not
working properly and must be serviced by your dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by Passlock at this time. You may also want to
check the fuse. See Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-85.
See your dealer for service. In an emergency, call the M
Roadside Assistance Center. See Roadside Assistance Program on
Excerpt from the 2003 Owners Manual.
Testing the Alarm The alarm can be tested by following these steps:
From inside the vehicle, Iower the driver's window and open
the driver's door.
Activate the system by locking the doors with the power door
lock switch while the door is open, or with the remote keyless entry transmitter.
Get out of the vehicle, close the door and wait for the SECURITY light to go out.
Then reach in through the window, unlock the door with the manual
door lock and open the door. This should set off the alarm. When
the alarm is set the power door unlock switch is not operational.
If the alarm does not sound when it should but the headlamps flash, check to see if the horn works. The horn fuse may be blown. To
replace the fuse, see Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-85.
If the alarm does not sound or the headlamps do not flash, the
vehicle should be serviced by your dealer.

Otherwise, get a coat hanger and insert it carefully between the front & rear windows and try to activate the unlock button in the car. It will set off the alarm, but you can turn it off after you get keys from trunk. Hit the trunk release inside the car.
I work for a doctor and a patient just had this same problem. She had a extra fob in her trunk so we opened the trunk with the key and got her other fob but I am wondering why the key does not fit the lock on the driverside
Did you try with the key? The keyhole is in the top left corner in the trunk by license plate (opposite to the camera lens).
Also, make sure the valet button in the glove compartment is released (or pressed)
