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 previous 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 programmed 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 be programmed? I have heard about "re-flashing the computer". Can you advise? Thank You

Unscrew the gas cap, wait 30 sec and screw it back on making 3 clicks/cracks. Should be ok in a day or two.

SOURCE: car keys locked in trunk of 1999 lexus es 300

1. I presume your button on the dash (which opens the trunk) is not working. You could take that button out of the dash panel and manually activate the circuit by using the wires themselves.
2. If the "valet" key doesn't fit the trunk lock, see if the keys are visible through the center back seat access 'hole', make a wire hook attached to a broom handle, etc. and try to catch the ring the key is on. If the view is blocked by other things you can't move, figure out at way to move things in the trunk so you can get something to reach the key(s). Do you have other metal keys on the same keyring? If so, use a magnet to grab the whole set.
3. Have you considered taking out the rear seat? Do the bottom seat cushion first, then the back.
4. By now you have hopefully already gotten your keys back out of the trunk, but if not I hope one of these suggestions works. MW
