Dead Battery In Key Fob

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have recently lost my main set of keys for my lexus is200 2001 model but I do have a replacement key.

But when I try to open the door manually, because the key Battery is dead, the alarm goes off and I cannot open the drivers door.

Do I have to have a working Battery to solve this problem? or should I be able to open the door manually and disable the alarm?

I am quite desperate as the car is in a shops carpark.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

David

you can unlock manually but the alarm will go off when you open the door. Once the ignition is on the alarm should stop after 10 to 20 seconds.

or are you saying the doors are deadlocked?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes the key doesn't seem to want to open the door, and when turned anti clockwise it sets off the alarm without opening the door. Turning clockwise doesn't open the door either!

I may be able to source a spare CR1616 Battery to replace the dead one, but being a Sunday may make it more difficult to source.

I would have thought that you could open manually though with a dead keyfob Battery?

Sounds like anti clockwise is unlocking - you may need to use extra force to mechanically move the deadlock back, that is what you need to do on other Toyota/Lexus vehicles - don't over do it and snap off the key :(

I changed the Battery and all was good. I was in a bit of a panic as it was Sunday and the car was in a car park!

Thanks for all your input.

Have a great Christmas.

Use the physical key?

Physically put the key in the driver or passenger door key hole and turn it and it should open
