Can anyone advise me of a company , in it around manchester , that can reflash my ecu on my 2002 ls430 and programme a new key. It's fit the usual smart entry start system.

If you know who can do it, or if it's you personally please let me know as I have no keys at all, just a key to manually open it that I had cut as an emergency get In.

I am losing the will to live here, as lexus said they don't reflash them and told me £2000

Cheers team , any advice would be great

But surely if you got a secondhand key that means you could break into any lexus and start it, the non chip metal key won't go into the ignition as its only for a smart key, ie no elongated slit for the key to go into to turn the ignition ?
