i just got a used 04 lexus es330 the car only came with the "valet key". i called Lexus they told me that i could get a key for $171 i payed it but guess what this doesnt include the programming this was just for them to cut the key!!!! so now i have a key that is good for nothing, i have heard there are ways you can program it yourself if anyone could help i would so appreciate it they are giving me ridiculous quotes on programming the key from $200-$898 please help me out!

keylessride.com sells instructions for $15 and have a great return policy if they or even if a key doesn't work. i hear it should only take 15 minutes to do it yourself, IF you have a master key. the first post in this thread who said he only had a valet key would need to get a working master (sounds like he has one now, but it's not working yet). in this case, he would have to get his engine computer flashed. this likely will cost more $. and may be only dealers can do this, but i dont know.
also, i encourage you to shop around. in my area (suburban philadelphia), some dealers sell new keys for $158 and $25 to program the key (if you have a master), others do the same for well into the $200 range.
i can't believe programming instructions aren't on the web somewhere (???) for free but for $15 i'm willing to buy them.
good luck all.

#7 of 9 2005 Lexus ES 330 vehicle Manual
Jun 15, 2010 (6:12 pm)
I just bought a used 2005 Lexus ES 330 and realized the vehicle operations manual is missing from the glove compartment where it is supposed to be. I suppose the dealership is not obligated to supply the new owner of the vehicle of such a manual when it turns out to be missing. Can I order this manual from the Lexus dealership and how much do they cost?

#9 of 9 Lexus car keys 2006 ES
May 13, 2012 (12:22 am)
I just purchased a 2006 ES 330 with only 1 master key. The customer reviews on ikeyless.com were scathing...does anyone know of an ethical company outside of Lexus who replicates & programs keys ?
The tranny is performing well, maybe because it only has 41K.
Any warning signs I should be looking out for? Loving the ride so far!
