Master Key

Recommended Posts


I have just bought a lexus is200 se 1999. It came with a black key with 3 buttons on it and nothing else. The casing for the key is broken. Do i have the master key? the key does not open the doors remotly but does start the car ok. I bought a new key of ebay with transponder in it. Can i re program the key?. Currently the steering lock is broken off (car was stolen recovered) so i need to change lock on steering but because i have an orginal key transponder i am just going to fit the new blade from the one supplied by salvage dealer. Will this work ok?????

Please help i dont want not to be able to start the Lex!!!
