The following is an alphabetical list of automobiles made by Lexus that use a high security laser cut key. The make, model and year are listed below. Some model years may overlap and the manufacturer may use different types of keys within the same year. Because of this overlap, we suggest you call the dealer or local automotive locksmith with your VIN number to find out which system your particular vehicle uses.
High Security Laser cut keys are also known as Sidewinder keys due to the snakelike groove cut into the key. They are made of a thicker metal than a normal key and will have the groove cut into both sides of the key by a machine known as a laser cutter.
Some high security laser cut keys also contain a transponder chip and require programming as well. Some Lexus vehicles use a high security key or FOB that can only be produced by the dealer. We have listed this type key as Dealer Key or Dealer FOB.
