I used csorb's instructions to reprogram a master key for my 2000 Lexus RX300. The ignition works perfectly, but the doors don't lock or unlock.


Hi!!
I believe your alarm is in the PASSIVE MODE, here is how it works.

PASSIVE MODE Setting (Arming) Anti-Theft System The system will automatically set 30 seconds after following methods are performed: Remove ignition key from ignition switch. Exit vehicle, and close all doors. After performing this, anti-theft indicator on left side of instrument panel will light continuously for about 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, anti-theft indicator will blink once per second. When system is set, doors cannot be locked or unlocked using door lock control switch.
CANCELING THE ALARM AND REPROGRAMING MAY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.
Canceling Anti-Theft System Setting (No Alarm) When system is set (armed), but alarm is not sounding, use one of following methods to cancel system setting:
  • Unlock left or right front door using key.
  • Unlock all doors using remote keyless entry system.
  • Insert key in ignition switch and turn to ON position (this is operative only when anti-theft system has not been triggered).
HERE IS HOW TO REPROGRAM THE ALARM IN CASE YOU NEED TO RESET IT.
PROGRAMMING
PASSIVE MODE NOTE:Initial mode is passive mode off. If there is a different signal in middle of programming, signal is invalid.
Programming Passive Mode Off
  • Remove ignition key from ignition key cylinder. Ensure all doors (including back door) and engine hood are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
  • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
  • Open driver door.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
  • Unlock driver door lock knob.
  • Close and open driver door 2 times.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be off.
Programming Passive Mode On
  • Remove ignition key from key cylinder. Ensure all doors, engine hood and luggage compartment door are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
  • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
  • Open driver door.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
  • Unlock driver door lock knob.
  • Close and open driver door 4 times.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be on.

lock with key,electric door lock button,or remote and alarm will set. to disarm you have to use the key or remote to open it.the reason it woulnt disarm from drivers door is either the door lock cylinder switch is broken or the wire to it in the rubber boot that connects the door and the body is broken.
the remotes are cheap and programing is easy,procedure in owners manuel something like lock drive door with elkect. lock switch with door open then push and hold unlock untill doors unlock then turn key off.you may have to fix that drive door lock cyl.switch first though mabee not dont know for sure

1. Close all doors and lock all doors
2. Insert and remove the key from the ignition key cylinder more than six times within 10 seconds. (The hazard warning lamp will then flash.) NOTE: Key should be withdrawn from ignition key cylinder completely each time.
NOTE: Do not rush the insertion/removal key cycling process. The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is accurately completed.
3. Insert key on ignition key cylinder and turn ignition key switch to "AAC" position At this time, the new ID code is entered and original (previous) ID codes are erase.
4. Press any button on the new remote controller once. (The hazard warning lamp will then flash)
NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful. The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is accurately completed and programming is successful.
If there is only one remote controller skip step 5.
5. Additional ID code entry Release the door lock, then lock again with door lock/unlock switch (In power window main switch)
6. Remove key from ignition
7. Unlock driver side door, open driver side door and then close the door. (END)

if your key worked before but doesn't now your probably looking at a worn out lock cylinder or a worn out key. more than likely its the lock cylinder. you can buy a replacement lock cylinder but it will have to be keyed to match the original key by a locksmith or a knowledgeable parts guy may know how

  6. Remove the ignition key from the key cylinder.
  7. After selecting a mode, the integration relay automatically performs the power door LOCK to UNLOCK operation within 3 seconds to inform the selected mode. • In the confirmation mode, when the operation is performed twice, it directs that 2 types of recognition codes have been registered. • In the confirmation mode, if the number of the registration code is 0 the LOCK to UNLOCK operation is automatically performed 5 times. • If the prohibition mode or confirmation mode is selected, registration procedure is completed. • If the add or rewrite mode has been selected, the doors will lock-unlock once or twice at 1 second intervals, once for add mode or twice for rewrite mode. • If the confirmation mode is selected, the doors will lock-unlock 0 to 2 times at 2 second intervals to inform the technician of the number of transmitters programmed. • If the prohibition mode is selected, the doors will lock-unlock 0 to 5 times at 1 second intervals.

The doors will lock-unlock once at a 1 second interval to inform the technician that the signal has been received from the transmitter. • If the doors lock-unlock once, the transmitter programming has been completed. Go to step 8 to continue programming for additional transmitters. • If the doors lock-unlock twice, the transmitter programming is not complete. Go to step 8 to begin the transmitter programming again.
If any of the following conditions occur during programming, the remote control door lock receiver will return to normal operation:

Locked my keys inside, can't find a door diagram online


A slim Jim is a fishing expedition. What you need to do is not worry about diagrams. Realize that the locking mechanism has just a very few parts that interconnect. The key hole where you insert your key, and the lock button that go up and down (or in some cases forward and back) are mechanically connected. It's that connection your fishing for and trying to move. You need to 'fish' between the lock and the button and try and 'hook' that linkage and move it in the dirction that moves your lock button to the unlocked position. If you really need a diagram many of the car part web sites will display a diagram for car parts. I've unlocked alot of doors with the method described and have never seen a diagram for what I'm doing. Good luck!

Why does my key fob only open drivers door


this how a dealer does it:
DOOR CONTROL TRANSMITTER
REGISTRATION
1. REGISTRATION OF RECOGNITION CODE
HINT:
 The add mode is used to retain the already registered codes while registering a new recognition code.
This mode is used when adding a transmitter. If the number of the registered codes exceeds 4, the previously
registered code will be correspondingly erased in order, starting from the first registered code.
 The rewrite mode is used to erase all the previously registered codes and register only new recognition
codes. This mode is used when exchanging the transmitter or the door control receiver for new one.
 The prohibition mode is used to erase all the registered codes and cancel the wireless door lock function.
Use this mode when the transmitter is lost.
 The confirmation mode is to confirm how many recognition codes have already been registered before
an additional registration of a recognition code.
 All the following registration procedures must be performed in order continuously.
(a) The vehicle should be in the following conditions.
(1) The key is not inserted in the ignition key cylinder.
(2) Driver’s door is OPENED. (The other doors are CLOSED)
(3) Driver’s door is UNLOCKED.
(b) Perform the following operations to select the desired mode.
(1) Insert and remove the key from the ignition switch twice within 5 seconds.
(2) After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the
key into the ignition key cylinder and remove it.
(3) After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the
key into the ignition key cylinder and close the door.
(4) Turn the ignition switch from LOCK to ON and back to LOCK at approximately 1 second interval 1
to 5 times to select a mode.(2 times for rewrite mode) Then remove the key from the ignition key cylinder.
(5) After selecting a mode, the integration relay automatically performs the power door
LOCK-UNLOCK operation within 3 seconds to inform the selected mode.
(c) Register the new recognition codes :
(1) Within 40 seconds after the add mode or the rewrite mode has been selected, press the LOCK and
UNLOCK switches on the transmitter switch simultaneously for 1.0 - 1.5 seconds.
Within 3 seconds after the previous operation, press either one of the switches for more than 1.0
seconds.
(2) Within 3 seconds after the transmitter switch has been turned OFF, the LOCK-UNLOCK operation
will be automatically performed once if the registration of the recognition code of the transmitter is
completed correctly. In case the LOCK-UNLOCK operation is performed twice, the registration of
recognition code has failed. Perform the registration procedure from the beginning once again.
(3) If the multiple transmitter to be registered, repeat step (c) within 40 seconds after the previous registration.
this is why the dealer charges for this
