sorry you are having issues with your Lexus.

I may ask a few quetions that seem silly, but they all serve a purpose since I have seen a lot over the years being a toyota and lexus master tech.

Can you open and shut the driver door three times for me. then lock the car with the key fob, unlock the car with the fob, then try to start it and let me know if that works.

If it still does not start, get out of the car and lock the car. Now unlock the doors with the fob, keeping your foot off the brake pedal, push the start button twice, once that happens, put your foot on the brake pedal and tell me what color the LED light is. Green, red, or amber.

Let me know and that can provide us a direction to go.
