The Smart Key

Your Lexus vehicle was made with two “Smart Keys” and an aluminum key-number plate. Each Smart Key includes an electronic main key that has an integrated mechanical back-up key. The electronic key controls the remote-entry and theft-deterrent systems, enables the push-button start switch and controls the engine immobilizer.

The mechanical key can be removed from the electronic key and used to operate the driver’s door lock, the glove box lock and the trunk lock (if equipped).

Replacing the Key
Your Lexus dealer can generate replacement keys. Certain bonded/ registered locksmiths may also be able to generate replacement keys.

When ordering a new key, bring all keys for the vehicle to your dealership.

If a Smart Key or the key-number plate is not available, a Lexus dealer or certain locksmiths can obtain the key code from a restrictedaccess database. These businesses can also access a service utility to register the keys to the vehicle if all registered keys have been lost.

If you lock your key in your vehicle and do not have a spare, your dealer can make a new mechanical key from the code on the key-number plate.

Certain bonded/registered locksmiths may also be able to generate a replacement mechanical key. If a Lexus dealer is not available, please refer to www.aloa.org to find a bonded/ registered locksmith who performs high-security key service.

Keeping the Key Safe
Replacing a Smart Key may be costly.

We advise you to keep a spare Smart Key and the key-number plate in a safe place. If you record the key number in more than one place, do not record it in a way that can be easily identified and associated with the vehicle. For example, don’t leave the number somewhere that can be accessed by a valet. It is wise to keep a copy of the key number outside of the vehicle.

Both Lexus and your Lexus dealer are dedicated to serving your automotive needs. Your complete satisfaction is our first priority. Should you have a problem or concern, please take the following steps to ensure the quickest possible response:

Step 1
Discuss the situation with a dealership manager, such as the service manager or customer satisfaction manager.

If necessary, ask the dealership owner or general manager for assistance. In most cases, a satisfactory solution can be reached at this step.
