Engine Immobilizer Reset
Posted 09 January 2006 - 10:01 PM
I got a call a few hours later that they had just reset the Lexus immobilier and it was starting fine from the key and remote. They ended up not charging me anything because they really didn't fix anything and I thought that was very nice ( I was afraid of the bill I might get ) The thought was that it was cold enought that the engine just didn't start right and caused the computer to think it was being stolen and locked it all down.
Now to finish a long story; how to reset the engine immobilizer. The Lexus tech was happy to show me how to do this myself if it should ever happen again ( and knock on wood it has not )
To reset: put the key in the drivers side door and turn to lock, and then unlock. Then on the key remote click lock and unlock. This resets the engine immobilizer system and it should start right up as normal.
