I bought a used 2002 IS300 with an unusual problem. The
ignition keys including the emergency key will start the car
and unlock the driver's door lock electronically. Where the
problem is that the same keys will not manually open the door.
The worry I have with this is that I won't be able to get in the car if the battery goes dead.
Has anyone ever had this problem? Any remedies?

i think something is wrong with your door lock. im guessing they replaced the door lock and didn't re-key the lock. they should be no reason all your keys work in the ignition and not work on the outside door lock. id inquire about any repairs done on the car and ask why the door lock doesn't work.
