Question about 2000 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Lexus ES 300. I purchased it as a repo and when it was taken they needed a key. It was taken to a dealer who made just a key that will open all doors, trunk glove box and start the car, no problem. However I have obtained the original remote key from the privious owner and the remote part for the doors, trunk, glove box work and it will fit the ignition and turn but will not start the car. I am told by the dealer it cannot be programed to work and a new $1,500. computer is needed. Sounds like they are trying to rip me off? Why cannot this key or a new key not be programed? I have heard about "re-flashing the computer". Can you advise? Thank You

They made the new key and you called they flashed it for that new key so car will not recognize old key in ignition get another key from they if you want another key to start car ok. I have a 04 Lexus RX 330 and that how each key has different functions.
