How Lexus Car Keys & Remotes really work:

- All Lexus car keys made after 1995 contain a small microchip hidden in the plastic part of key called a transponder.

- The Chip is made of clear plastic glass & must be programmed correctly to allow any Lexus vehicle to start.

- Transponder chips are contained inside the keys of all modern Lexus vehicles – This applies to both modern Lexus remote control fob keys and simple older Lexus car keys which don’t feature remote central locking.

- Lost Lexus Car Key Advice: To replace a lost or missing Lexus Car Key you can either:


a) Avoid showroom overheads and buy your replacement Lexus Car Key or Remote Fob from a Lexus Car Key Specialist (for example market leader AutoKey Squad)




b) visit your local Lexus Dealership or Service Centre.


Which is my best option?


- You can often make substantial cost savings by replacing your Car Key through a Lexus Car Key Specialist compared to high-street dealerships with expensive overheads.


-This is because standard mechanics working for main Dealerships typically do not have the necessary expertise to programme a new key or proximity card to an existing vehicle.


- Instead, Showroom Dealerships typically inform customers that there only option is to remove and replace ALL the locks on the vehicle and change the ignition lock. This expensive and labour intensive process typically carries a price tag around the £800-£1,200 mark depending on the vehicle.


- New keys are then supplied to fit the replacement locks and are programmed into the vehicle. The procedure typically carries a price tag in excess of £1,000.


- By contrast, a skilled Lexus Car Key Specialist (such as AutoKey Squad) will supply a new Lexus Car Key to fit the vehicle’s existing lock barrels using specialist key cutting equipment not available to Dealership mechanics.

The replacement key can then be programmed swiftly and more cost-effectively to the vehicle. The saving to Lexus owners can often amount to hundreds of pounds lock-out.
Vehicle security is preserved by disabling the transponder chips of the missing or stolen keys.


A mobile Lexus Car Key Specialist (such as AutoKey Squad) will also be able to supply a new, replacement or spare Car Key at your Lexus vehicle, wherever it is located, at a time convenient to you. Available appointment times include out-of-hours appointments during evenings, weekends or early mornings at no extra charge. This can avoid recovery/tow-truck costs back to the High-Street Dealer.


INSIDE INFORMATION: Your Lexus immobiliser unit is concealed behind the driver’s headlight on IS200 units. Your Car Key Specailist will need to reprogramme this unit to provide your fully working new Lexus Car Key.
- The chips inside every Lexus Key are “programmed” to a single vehicle.
- The chip technology is also featured in modern Lexus proximity car keys which start the vehicle while still in the owner’s pocket.
- The immobiliser system searches electronically for a transponder chip when a key is instered into the ignition and turned.
- If the correct chip is present, the immo system will allow the Lexus vehicle to start. If the immo system fails to detect a chip the fuel supply to the engine is cut off.
- It is normally impossible to bypass, override or remove a Lexus immobiliser and still drive the vehicle.
Very old Lexus Car Keys (manufactured prior to 1995) normally contain no transponder chip. This can dramatically reduce the cost of new car keys for this age of vehicle.
- Replacing a lost/stolen or stuck Lexus key is a two-phase procedure:
- Step 1: A new key blade (either a traditional car key or a laser remote control flip key) must be cut accurately to unlock the doors and fit the ignition or all the locks on the vehicle must be replaced.
- Step 2: The transponder chip inside the replacement Car Key must be electronically “paired” to your Lexus vehicle so your new Lexus Car Key interacts as normal – working just like the manufacturer’s original key supplied to its first owner at point of original sale.
- If the Lexus key is programmed incorrectly, your replacement key will unlock the doors and turn in the ignition, but the car’s ECU (Engine Control Unit) will NOT allow the vehilce to start.
- Warning: Beware of second hand or recylced chips and keys purchased online or from online auction sites These will NOT start your Lexus vehicle – unless the key has been diagnostically paired to the car using dealer-standard diagnostic equipment. You are advised only to attempt to replace your car key if you are experienced and familiar with Lexus vehicle diagnostic tools.
- Replacement fobs can be either be programmed to copy (clone) an existing key or replace it altogether.

The Inside Track from an AutoKey Squad Lexus Car Key Specialist:
Many Autokey Squad customers are baffled and confused by the technology used in Lexus Car Keys and immobiliser systems. Our specialists are dedicating to using their expertise to help you resolve your Lexus car key problem promptly and efficiently– without bothering you with the minuatae of obscure car security features.
Nevertheless, many of AutoKey Squad’s customers work as specialists for garages or dealerships in the motor trade. Below, we present more detailed background information for AutoKey Squad customers who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the immobiliser and transponder chip technology which underpins modern Lexus car keys.
Below, AutoKey Squad Lexus car key expert Philip Haughey, from Pimlico, Central London, offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of the Lexus car key technology and security features, exploding some of the most popular misconceptions:
“Many people seem to think they can only get a new Lexus Car Key by going to an authorised Lexus dealer who will need to replace all the lock barrels and boot locks at a cost of more than a grand. To be honest, this is a bit of a myth put around – some cynics might say it’s done by the dealerships to keep revenue up.
“As Lexus Car Key Specialists, my company AutoKey Squad has the potential to save Lexus owners alot of money if they are unlucky enough to lose some or all of their keys. We come to the customer’s vehicle to cut a replacement key, whereas Lexus Dealerships will normally ask a motorist to get their vehicle to a dealer on a low-loader. That adds up to time, hassle & money which was wasted in comparison to using a roadside mobile key replacement service.
“That’s a big saving. And there’s another factor at play here. Because all AutoKey Squad technicians are qualified lock specialists, we can work with the customer’s existing locks. We cut and create a brand new replacement Lexus key which fits the existing door locks and ignition barrel. After that, we use dealer-standard diagnostic tools to programme a small glass chip known as the transponder into the Lexus vehicle’s ECU which basically acts as its brain.
“If you have any more questions about your Lexus car key, please don’t hesitate to give our head office a ring on 0800 999 0121. If I can’t speak to you I promise one of my Lexus specialist colleagues will do his very best to help! I hope you get back on the road as soon as possible.”
