My reply to the question you posted in the engine sub-forum http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=68268

It would seem that the key you have is the "valet" key which allows driving of the car but will not open the boot or glovebox for security/privacy reasons.

To programme a new key you need the master key which you probably don't have given the above.

It may be the only option that you will have to go to a Lexus dealer where they may be able to provide a master key from you VIN plate but be prepared for the price shock!

Finally welcome to the LOC
