That's no good,

I would be checking all the main engine bay fuses first up. I say main becuase if you have nothing at the dash board, then you may have blown a main fuse which supplies your car with battery power.

They are larger than usual and usually have a see-through glass/plastic for easy checking. Usually consealed in a plastic housing near the battery. Your handbook will tell you where they are located.

Hope this helps

Thanks Simon,

the car will start as long as I don't have the alarm on and not use the keyless entry.

what do you think is the problem?

Strange side effects from jump starting a car, I would run through all the fuses in the car. Does it have a non factory alarm installed? It could be that which is causing your trouble?

Hmm I would also check the fuses on the drivers side fuse panel, particularly the 'dome' fuse. Did you ground the negative when you jump started or put the lead on the negative terminal on the battery?

You've most probably damaged the ECU. Are any fault codes coming up? I'd be looking for a looking for cheap 2nd hand ECU if I was you, but maybe get it checked out by Lexus first.
