hey sk,
yeah i found it kinda odd as well, but i got these docs from DevilDog, you probably know him, he's moderating a couple of forums i believe, he sells keys and he sent me the pdf which looks pretty original to me...

i may be wrong, but were the alarm systems modified for the 95-96 ES? i thought i saw that somewhere, but i'm not entirely sure...if so that may explain why these directions are different than the ones you have...i'm assuming your instructions have worked for you?

but what you're talking about is a new ECU with the matching keys correct? i'm not replacing anything, just getting a remote key and programming it to work with my existing ECU.

Will any 97 to 01 ES300 remote work with my 97 ES300?

There is one on Ebay that looks like the one I need (it looks like the remote in the picture posted earlier in this thread), but do the part numbers have to match also?

Thanks for your help!

There is this guy on Ebay that has a dozen of them, selling all of them in a dutch auction, with the same title "Remote for 1997 ES300" and the picture he has looks exactly the one I need to.

But he has only one part number listed, so it means that all of the ones he has for sale have the same part number, so do all the 1997 ES300 have the same part number also?

He has 12 and he is selling them for $20 each. I wanna go ahead and order one through buy-it-now, but I want to make sure it will work before I order it.

Thanks!

PS: Also, does anybody know if the front bumper, front grille, and/or the rear tailights from the 2001 Lexus ES300 fit the 1997 ES300?

yeah nanotech, the remote works for the '97-'01 ES's.
go ahead and get it.

for the bumper, grille, and tail lights...
you've already opened a thread on it, and there's not really anyone that has really tried it yet. if you want to find out by yourself, you'll just have to get the bumper, the grille, and the tail lights and find out. the bumper and grille i would guess would just be plug-and-play. but the tail lights, i'd have to see the bolt pattern in the back to be sure.

Hey Marc, as far as I know, that keyless fob with the 3 buttons (unlock, lock, trunk open) will work only on the '97-'99 ES, and so won't work on the '95. This question was asked many times in this forum, and has been tried as well. It looks like you'll have to look for the OEM master key fob w/ the oval-shaped lock/unlock button.

Oh, and please turn the 'CAPS' button off next time when typing...

Talking 1997 LS400 Keyless Programming

For your Info

The keyless programming instructions for ES 300 posted by NIXSUN79 worked perfectly for the 97 LS400.

Was having trouble finding info on LS 400 keyless programming. Bought FOB on Ebay for ES 300(they said it would probably work with LS400) and it worked great.

Thanks everybody.

Here are instructions:


1. Driver's door open and unlocked, all other doors closed and locked.
2. Insert YOUR key in ignition, DO NOT TURN, remove key.
3. Using the lock/unlock button ON THE DRIVERS DOOR, slowly press lock and unlock 5 times (count the lock 5 times and unlock 5 times).
4. Shut door.
5. Open door.
6. Using the lock/unlock button ON THE DRIVERS DOOR, slowly press lock and unlock 5 times (count the lock 5 times and unlock 5 times).
7. With the door open insert your key into the ignition, turn to on position (DON'T START), wait 5 seconds. Turn off and remove key.
8. Locks should cycle once (Car will lock and then unlock once). If they don't cycle or they cycle more than once, do steps 1-7 over.
9. Now using the remote, push lock button, hold for one second, release. The locks should cycle once. If not, start over and go slower.
10. Close the door. Open the door. Press the lock button on the remote. The locks should cycle. Close the door. Press the lock button on the remote, the doors should lock. Press again and the doors should unlock.

Congratulations - You are done!
