Just started to have a problem with my 2010 RX350 ... just 1 year old with 14k miles .... periodically having an issue with the key fob key and the wallet key.
I had to use my mechanical key the other day to get into the RX, and hold the key on the start button to get driving .... a few days later, normal keyless entry worked ... grabbed the handle, and the RX unlocked pressed the start button regularly, and everything is ok.
I have had the smart key since March 2006, since I had a 2007 Camry XLE, and never did my battery go dead with that vehicle in over 3 years! Now exactly 1 year old (RX keys), and having an issue ... wonder if its the battery, the keys, or the smart key system within the vehicle.
I checked into any Service Bulletins that may be listed on TIS, however I came up empty handed.
To the OP, I am curious to see what your remedy is to this situation. Please PM your fix ... was it the battery, or an issue with the vehicle itself?
