Guys,

I have just acquired an SE Mk2 GS300. I think its a very lovely Car. Has got everything (almost). However, I only have one key for it and it is not even the master Key. I don't have the keys for the locks either. I have seen some keys peddled on ebay (US). Would these work in the UK re: programming ? Does anyone have the instructions for programming? OR Is there any other way of geting the master and a spare on the cheap ?

Every little piece of info helps a great deal..

and Thanks :)

You don't say what age your car is. If it's a pre-facelift model (pre 2001) then the control system also has to be replaced as you cannot program another key without a master.

I've tried a key from the US. Couldn't get the remote locking to program (may use different frequency) and I cannot find the procedure for programming the immobiliser as it's different from the US procedure.

Sorry about the omission. Its a 2001 UK Car.

If the US route is a no-show option, is there any other cheaper and viable alternative? Lexus Bracknell is currently quoting me around £210 for the Master and £1100 for the set.

If you have a 2001 car then you shouldn'd need the set. They should be able to program your car for a new master key on its own.

I don't think there is any other way because Lexus will need to program the car using their diagnostic equipment.

You can always join the Lexus Owners Club Gold membership which will save you up to 15% off Lexus parts and servicing to help lower the bill.
