I can't start GX470

Asked by Apr 13, 2012 at 02:23 AM about the 2006 Lexus GX 470 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have three Lexus RX300 (2001), LS400(1998) and newly bought GX470(2006). Three keys in the key chin. I used RX300 key trying to start GX470 and then I can not use the GX470 key to start. I think the code the wrong. How do I do? Does the car reset the code a little while later?

1 Answer


The car will not recognize the code from the transponder for the rx key and will set a immobilizer code, not allowing the vehicle to start. Easiest way is to clear the code with a code reader and not do it again, if you don't have a code reader, you can undo the negative terminal for 5 minutes to clear the code.The key may work after that, but you will have to reinitialize your windows and sunroof for their auto functions. Thats easy to do.
