There is no way to start the car with out a working key, you best option is to contact a lock smith who can at least get you into the car to retrieve your papers/

Then what ? Must we has car transported to Lexus dealer so far away? I stated the distance to the turns ou is is 260 miles
Expert:  Ron replied 9 months ago.

Unfortunately if the lock smith can not cut and program a new key for you then yes. If you can get a new key cut there is a way to reset it but it requires access to the dealer scan tool.

We sent money for basic membership on American Express a few days Ago. Please confirm. Thank you. Do we need to be charged for phone call?
Expert:  Ron replied 9 months ago.

You are not charged for a phone call as I did not call you. You are only charged for the service if you rate the service.
