Replacement Key

Recommended Posts

Hi ! I'm hoping that someone may be able to help me.

I recently bought an X reg IS200 sport.

I bought the car from a run of the mill garage who said that they were unable to source the 'spare keys' as it is an ex-lease car. When I contacted Lexus they quoted me £85 !!

Surely there's a less expensive way around this?

Any advice would be very gratefully received

Thanks

:crybaby:

As they tend to break easily, I had one ordered a year ago. 60 Euros excluding VAT and programming at the Lexus dealer. If you have the master key, there is a cumbersome way to program the key to the car (immobilizer), and another cumbersome way to program the built in remote to the central locking.

Click me!

Click me 2!

Cheers,

Thanx for replying so quick!

I have the master key. What are the cumbersome ways?

Any ideas about where I could get a key from to do this cumbersome thing on?

Thanks again!

:unsure:

You might try to just order the key and program it using your master key and save on the programming costs. With cumbersome I mean the ritual of pulling the keys and opening/closing doors etc. Your neighbours will think you've lost it ;)

I've just spent the hour searching for somewhere to buy a 'spare key' from so that I can then programme it myself...I've been on almost every site and have had no luck!

Anyone had to buy a replacement key?

I'd like to know where to look for one surely a 'locksmith' is of little use here?

:duh:

A few days ago I bought a new key from eBay (Canada) for my IS 200.

The key has 3 buttons (Lock, unlock and boot)

I manage using instructions from forum to make key recognized from immobilizer.

I also tried to program transmitter but no luck.

I followed instructions below (tried that many times).

#DRIVERS DOOR OPEN AND KEY REMOVED FROM IGNITION SWITCH .

INSERT KEY INTO IGNITION SWITCH , THEN REMOVE IT .

WITHIN 40 SECONDS -

PRESS LOCK AND UNLOCK ON THE VEHICLE DOOR LOCK SWITCH AT 1 SECOND INTERVALS 5 TIMES .

CLOSE AND REOPEN DRIVERS DOOR .

WITHIN 40 SECONDS -

PRESS LOCK AND UNLOCK ON THE VEHICLE DOOR LOCK SWITCH AT 1 SECOND INTERVALS 5 TIMES .

INSERT KEY INTO IGNITION SWITCH .

SWITCH INGNITION "ON" AND "OFF" ONCE TO PROGRAM A NEW KEY CODE WHILST RETAINING THE ORIGINAL CODES OR TWICE TO PROGRAM A NEW KEY CODE WHILST ERASING THE ORIGINAL CODES .

REMOVE KEY FROM IGNITION .

*SYSTEM SHOULD NOW LOCK AND UNLOCK VEHICLE , ONCE OR TWICE DEPENDING WHICH MODE HAS BEEN SELECTED*

WITHIN 40 SECONDS -

SIMULTANEOUSLY PRESS AND HOLD KEY "LOCK" AND "UNLOCK" BUTTONS FOR A MAXIMUM OF 1.5 SECONDS .

WITHIN 3 SECONDS : PRESS ANY KEY BUTTON FOR A MINIMUM OF 1 SECOND .

NOTE --- IF SYSTEM LOCKS AND UNLOCKS TWICE VEHICLE TWICE , PROGRAMMING PROCEDURE HAS NOT BEEN COMPLETED .#

After pressing the two buttons together nothing happens.

Any ideas

Thank *** my next door neighbor is an old lady having hearing problems

Hope to hear from anyone soon as how to do this as Lexus Cyprus ask for 35 £ for programming the key. I am supposed to take the car by Tuesday. Saving 35 £ will be 20 beers at local bar.
