Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

the anti theft security system was triggered most likley moving that battery and the system seen no voltage and triggered

we can try resetting manually ,IF ALL WAS WORKING PRIOR TO REMOVING BATTERY IT SHOULD WORK

Master Reset

1-Disconnect Both Battery Cables ,Positive & Negative .
2- Touch Cables With Each Other For 60 Secs ( this will take any residual power in the Harness to Reset the Vehicle Modules )
3- Wait 30 min
4- Close all doors and trunk
5- Reconnect Battery Positive First
6- Use The Key in The Driver Side Door
Lock Cylinder to Lock it & Unlock,IF You have only a Key Fob ,use it to lock and unlock
7- Enter vehicle and Start it .

if THAT DOES NOT WORK THEN You will need a Capable Factory scanner or equivalent to Read the Fault codes in the Modules needed and based on these faults we can pull up a Pin Point Troubleshoot and be Accurate ,If you get the Faults Read ,post them back here for me and I can Help You Further on it & we be Accurate

Lexus Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 1 month ago

Problem is what ever work on the connector or wiring or the ecu lock itself , after repair you will need a factry scanner to register that ecu back to the car ,so you can finish job yourself with a capable scanner

TSB ,Technical service bulletin, is not a recall so dealer want pay for it
