I thought I was out of gas but got 3 gallons into car and it

Customer Question

I thought I was out of gas but got 3 gallons into car and it just won't start. My Lexus key is very unstable and I have tape holding it together. It is the original key but the black case just will not stay together any longer - could this be the problem
JA: Figuring out why a car won't start can be a challenge - it could be a simple repair, or something a bit more complicated. Fortunately, the mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: I don't have any other option at this point. I live alone and it is my only transportation. I got ride to work but have to be able to have the car working. It just will not start. Will Lexus replace the key since I have all the parts and they are just worn out and I haven't lost the key
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Lexus Mechanic should know about your Lexus?
Customer: No - It is a 2006 and runs wonderful. The second key had same issue and finally cracked - I want to know how to replace the black key case on these keys with spending hundreds of dollars on new keys
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lexus Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
