Try contacting Lexus Customer Service and see if they'd still have your key codes on file. If they do, visit your local Lexus dealer with your vehicle registration and your driver's license as proof of ownership. They'll use your vehicle identification number to get your key codes and make you another key. Because your car is 21 years old the information may not be available. If that's the case you'll need to visit a locksmith. HTH. -Jim

Locksmith but you should have a middle arm rest big enough for a kid to squeeze through which goes to the trunk directly in back seat

There is no pass-through to the truck on an LS400. You need a locksmith or extra set of keys. Does your LS have a remote truck opening button?

Yes I've done it before the Lexus alarm system once tripped disables the button by the leg even if the car comes open. You'll have to get in the car and unscrew the speaker in the rear and reach down into the trunk to retrieve your keys
