Default Keyless remote programming

Is it possible to program the remote on my own or do I need to take it into the dealer ? I remember reading a thread for programming the remote for 97 es but cannot find it .
Thanks

You can program it yourself. Here are the 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!

i have a 92 ES with the lock/unlock button on the side of the key. do any of you know if it's possible to program the 97 & up remote to work for the 96 & down models? i know the newer remote is totally separate from the key, and has the lock/unlock feature, trunk pop, and panic (i think). i really like having my lock/unlock button on the side of my key, but i always wanted to be able to pop my trunk remotely. has anyone ever accomplished this before?

Unfortunatly the 97 remote will only work on 97-99 lexus models. Does your 92 have a button to pop the trunk (in the car) or a lever. If you have a lever you will not be able to get a remote to function the trunk anyway.

When I got my car it did not come with the remote, for whatever reason I don't know. I just got my remote today and works great. I got it off ebay for $15. I know the dealer charges $170 for the remote and additional fees to program. I love the Lexus keyless entry, instead of a horn honking or a churping noise, it makes a nice beep (similar to that of a computer) and the parking lights flash. Its so Pimp.

Anyways if you decide to check it out any further just search for lexus remote on that auction site, you will find what you need.

Yes you can find and program a remote for the '97+ models, but unfortunately for the '96 and ealier ES300's it is not that simple. From what I found in ALLDATADIY.com the keyless entry can only be programmed if you match the chip in the key with the chip in the main unit located behind the right rear trim panel. Basically you have to buy a new unit and key, which go for about $230. If I find out anything different I will be sure to let everyone know. I really want to use the keyless entry feature as well.

Thanks,
Dave

Default Does this really work

Hello ,

I tried these instructions about 5 times.

My kids are laughing, because they think I am gullible (actually i am cheap)

Any other hints:

Paries, try this slightly different programming method. The one described earlier in this thread didn't work for me either a few months ago, but this one did:



Sit in the driver's seat and lock all the doors.

Unlock and open the driver's door.

Insert the key into the ignition and remove it (don't turn it...just remove it).

Using the MANUAL lock switch on the driver's door, lock and unlock the door 5 times.

Close the door.

Open the door.

Lock and unlock the driver's door 5 times (I'm almost certain you use the MANUAL lock switch again, but if this sequence fails to work, try again with the power switch).

Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the "ON" position.

Remove the key.

The driver's door will now lock and unlock itself one time.

Press and hold the "LOCK" button on the key fob for at least 1 second.

Close the driver's door.

Open the driver's door.

Press and hold the "LOCK" button on the key fob for at least one second.

Close the driver's door.

Press and hold the "LOCK" button on the key fob. The door will lock.

Press and hold the "LOCK" button on the key fob again. The door will unlock.

You should be all set.



Subtle differences, but I remember having trouble initially programming a remote as well ('98). And I sympathize with the feeling like an idiot thing. My wife thought I was a loon. But this sequence worked. Honest. Good luck.

Yes, the 92-96 have an electric trunk release, however it's not tied into the keyless entry. Buying a keyless entry unit from a salvaged 97 and then wiring it into the trunk sounds like more trouble than it's worth.

Are you sure that the remote you have is for a 97? Post a pic of it.

It should look like this one:

no these will not work for the 92-96 es
the button beside the steering wheel is to turn the chirp noise for the alarm on or off
i think the frequency for the transmitter is fm 93.7 i may be wrong
tune the station press the button on the remote if you hear a weird noise on the radio the key works
if still nothing then you may have to ground the key to the receiver box in the trunk it is supposed to have a slot for the key
then press the button whil it is in there
i will have to look in the manual
you may have to buy a new set of master keys which come with a new chip
