Question about 1993 Lexus Ls 400

1 Answer

I lost the key to my Lexus LS 400, 1994 Model and I do not have a spare key. I don't know what options I have in getting a new key for it. The electronic chip on the previous key had been deactivated leaving it fully manual. Kindly let me know what I could do to get around this problem.

2004 Lexus LS 350 keys in trunk battery dead


I would have the dealer cut a new key to get the driver's door open - or use a spare. You can buy a small charger that plugs into the cig lighter.

Engine turns over, stalls out and alarm goes off


These vehicles use Fords Securilock transponder system to prevent vehicle theft. Basically, there is a little radio chip in the key that transmits a code to the computer when you start the car. If this code doesn't match the computer, the computer disables fuel and spark so the engine won't run. If you have a spare key, try that to see if it works. If it doesn't work, then the Securilock system needs service. Unfortunately only the dealer can service this system because it is integrated into the vehicle computer.

If your spare key works, then the key you tried to use has a damaged transponder and the key needs to be replaced. If you don't have a spare key, contact a locksmith and have them make you a new key. I have to warn you, transponder keys are not cheap. They can cost easily $75 and some even go for $150. But, that is probably cheaper then having Ford make one and even if the spare doesn't work, when you get the system fixed by the dealer they can program your spare key as well so you don't waste the money on the key.

How do you get the locked bulb off your tire to replace it with the spare? Where is the unlock key located? Or do you have to contact your dealer?


The key is usually attached to the lug wrench at the factory with a wire. If it is not attached to the lug wrench, look for it by the spare or else in the glove box. If you can't find it, buy a new one from the dealer.

How do you replace a lost key for a lexus rx 330


You need to bring the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) to a Lexus dealer, where they will check that against a stolen car database, and ensure you receive the correct key. This key usually has an internal transponder-computer chip to match the vehicle. Not inexpensive but there's pretty much no way around this.

Hope this helps.

My battery seems to be very low in my key for my 1998 lexus ls 400. Can I replace the battery myself or is it tricky?


Usually not. Disconnect negative battery terminal, then positive. Next remove battery hold down (type is specific to car model). Battery then lifts out and replace with correct new one. Install is reverse.
