Try that I would suggest at first, clean with robbing alcohol and let it dry completely while the battery has already been taken off.

You might also be having a problem with the actual plastic thing that presses the button, if its worn out then just place a piece of paper underneath the button and then pressing it to see if there is any response from the car.

Hope that helps, let me know.

I have a 2000 Lexus RX 300. The key can open and lock all 4 doors except the driver door. All connections seem to be OK

So what happens when you put the key in? does it go all the way in? will it turn either direction? Did it used to work, or did you just buy the car? Is the key bent? does it appear someone has tampered with the door? Most likely a locksmith will need to remove the lock and repair it. But when you have a problem try to tell everything you can, even if you think its not relevant.
