When i bought my is300 I recieved 2 keys, I did some research and Im making sure I could copy and program it before buying a blank key online. Well my problem is I lost one of my key and I was reading around and said you would need the master key to progem the copy key. I tested my non-remote key with the door(work),trunk(work),glove department(work),and ignition (turn the security light off right away) so is this a master <crossing my finger> thanks for the help...

far as i know the key with the three buttons is the master key... my car came with two other keys: the valet key and the wallet key (card key). all of these will start the car but the valet wil not unlock the trunk. i dont know if the valet or the wallet key can be used to program another or not

sorry to threadjack,but I'm also in need of another key. I've read that they can be purchased from ebay. I don't need another remote key (still have mine), so I'd just like the Valet-style.

Do you guys know if this key will work:
eBay replacement key
