Q: Locks on 1998 Lexus LX470

The alarm on our LX470 was set off by kids playing by the car. Ever since the vehicle wont lock using the key or the switch on the door. The Theft deterrent light indicator flashes but I know it is not engaged as the vehilce is not locked. How do I reset this?

I hate to say it but, it needs to go to the dealer to re-program key fob. If you get to us first we will try at no charge. I just think it will still need to be re-programed. you could call the dealer and ask about the cost to re-program the fob. Let us know if we can help.
Thank you. Ramon
