Question about 2007 Lexus IS 250

1 Answer

I just changed he battery in my key for my IS 250 (keyless) Now that I changed the battery (Renata CR1632 new exchanged for an old Panasonic CR1632 lithium battery) the red indicator on the key blinks faintly, however, the car doors and trunk won't open. There is a metal key attached but I'm not sure how to utilize it to start the car David

Your key goes into sleep mode when not in range of your car (which emits a frequency that searches for, and wakes, the key). If the key is within three feet of a fluorescent bulb or a cell phone charger (or a few other devices that emit a certain frequency), the key doesn't go to sleep and this causes the battery to deplete faster than normal. Try using a fresh energizer or duracell battery, it is possible that the NEW battery you placed into the remote was old stock and is near dead. If it is still blinking faintly after you put a confirmed good battery in it then replace the defective key fob.

2005 Nissan Sentra, the keyless entry locks the doors but does not unlock them.


does your unlock button work in car? If it does, do you have another keyless entry key fob? If so does it work? If you just replaced the battery you can try removing battery and cleaning contacts within remote. I know some of the nissan altimas had the same issue and the only solution was a new key fob. Good Luck

are you sure you got the right battery replacement? sounds like you've changed the size or shape of your key.put the old battery back into your remote and then try to manually unlock doors with your key.or if you've thrown the old battery away try putting the remote back together with out any battery in it,at least you'll be able to gain access your car again until you can get the right battery. hope this helps! thank you for choosing fixya.com let me know if this works please. thank you

1998 mercedes benz e320 key does not turn or unlock doors


All keyless-entry keys have small batteries which runout in long term, some has small screws which you can open and change the battery and some needs to be replaced with new keys, have a look at your car's key and see if you can open the plastic cover and change the battery. Hope it helps and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

Keyless entry only works at very close range.


the batteries are getting weak in your remote control. your dealer should have them in stock and be able to change them for you on the spot.

Keyless Remote Entry Doesn't Work


Hi, Had similar problem and replaced the key fob battery, which was a waste of money because the faulty item was my "door lock actuator".  Had it replaced at a Maryland repair shop for around $180, Honda dealer wanted over $250. Good luck :)
