Lexus & Toyota Early Models Computers
If you lost your Lexus car key, you may heard the bad news from the dealer “A $600 computer needs to be installed in order to make a replacement key, that does not includes labor, tax and keys and towing fees…“. Can a locksmith beat this price?
Over the years, technology gave us the tools to re-flash these computers, eliminating the need to replace them.
Mr. Ollie is a fantastic person to work with. I had an issue with my Lexus ECU and could not find anyone that could solve my problem locally. We met after hours at his house and he solved my problem within 15 minutes. I will sing his praises to everyone far and wide, if you need a locksmith give this guy a call!!! I am 100% satisfied with responsiveness, communication, ease of doing business and professionalism.
