Help Can't Start My Lexus Es300!


Recommended Posts

HERES MY PROBLEM.

I HAVE A LEXUS ES300 , 1992.

I WAS VISITING A FRIEND AND WHEN I WAS LEAVING THE KEY WOULD NOT TURN AT ALL. IT WAS JUST STUCK IN THE DOOR. THE KEY GOES INTO THE LOCK BUT WILL NOT TURN TO OPEN THE DOOR. I TRIED TO USE THE PASSENGER LOCK BUT SOMEHOW THE ALARM WENT OFF.

WELL....I SUCCESSFULLY OPENED THE DOORS THROUGH THE PASSENGER DOOR... BUT THEN THE CAR WON'T START AND THE KEY DOESN'T TURN IN THE DRIVERS SIDE DOOR!!

SO NOW MY CAR IS STUCK AT MY FRIENDS HOUSE AND I AM UNABLE TO MOVE IT.

HAS ANYONE HAD THIS PROBLEM AND IS THERE A WAY TO OVERRIDE THE SECURITY?

BY THE WAY THE BUTTON ON THE KEY DOES NOT WORK AND SINCE I HAD THE CAR IT NEVER WORKED, I EVEN CHANGED THE BATTERY, I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT HAD A BUILT IN ALARM SYSTEM.

IF ANYONE CAN HELP IT WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS.

you obvioulsy tried the key both ways

but the alram control is only on the drivers door i think

try holding the key in unlock on the passanger door

there must be somehting stuck in the drivers doorkey hole clean it with wd 40

until the alarm is deactivated the car will not start

i get this with mine funny enough... i just turn the key upside down and tried that and it worked.

might be something different.

check to see if no one has messed with the car and put super glue in the lock

ok, well i disconnected the battery and that didn't work. I tried wd40 but the lock will not budge with the key in there, not even with the key upside down. its as if some crazy glued it but i doubt that because i am parked by a friends house and i was there only an hour when i had this problem. after 24 hours the car will not start . the alarm can't be deactivated because the door lock is stuck.

i noticed that there is a switch in the car to activate the button on the key, i'll try to get a new battery again and turn the switch on.

i'm wondering should i call a locksmith or do i have to go to the dealer ??

by the way thanks for the advice so far, its reallly appreciated.

does the key goes in alll the way??

also did you try deactiviating it from the passenger door?

if you turn the key in the passanger door lock and hold it does it unlock/lock all the doors

is the alarm light on the dash bezel flashing

sorry for all the questions just trying to get a big picture

well the key goes in a little more than 3/4 of the way. i am not sure if that is normal, i don't think it ever went all the way in.

i tried the passenger door and it unlocked all the doors but doesn't deactivate the alarm. the engine still doesn't start.

its a 1992 lexus, i don't see any alarm light flashing.

i called the dealer , there saying the only way to deactivate is to use the button on the key (which doesn't work) or to unlock through the drivers side.

i guess i'll have to have it towed to a dealer.

thanks for the help

have you tried to remove anything in the key hole?

on the left side on the trunk( behind the paneling is the master ecu for the alarm

there is a hole for the key put it in there see what it does while pressing the button on it

ok

you are saying around the cluster on the bezel there is no little red light that illuminates when the alarm is on

or it doesn't work?

the 4 ways to deactivate the systme are

unlock left or right door

unlock with wireless button

put key in ignition to acc or on position

or open a door before the one minute wait after all doors and hood + trunk are closed

the biggest problem is you have mulitple problems

first car doesn't start

key won't go in

button never worked

all point to the theft system

have you checked the fuses for the alarm and locks

do the power door locks work inside he vehicle

ok

tune ther radio to 94.9 press the button on the key does it make noise on the radio?

yes a incar problem

no the transmitter is off

try to be as descriptive as possible when replying

thanks
