Customer Question

I have a 2003 gx470. The key stopped working. That was 3 weeks ago. I took it to my local shop I use and they replaced the antenna ring and ICU. Worked with a locksmith and Went through all known procedures and couldn't get it to work. It could start but only for 1 second. We then had it towed to the local toyota dealer. I am 150 miles froma Lexus dealer. They went through all the procedures and also couldnt get it to work. Could only start for 1 second. They dont seem to know what to do now. Looking for some other insights. This cant be the first time this has happened.

If this is a security system issue there will be trouble codes stored. Has anyone scanned it and retrieved these codes?

both shops scanned codes and went through the troubleshooting procedures. I dont know the codes. They can get the car to start for mayb 1 second
