I have a Lexus LS430 2002 model, the key goes into the ignition

Customer Question

I have a Lexus LS430 2002 model, the key goes into the ignition and the engine starts but if i withdraw the key and leave it out of the ignition for more than about 5 or 6 hours the ignition locks and will not turn when the key goes back in. Leave the car standing and after about 24-48 hours all works normally. Can anyone help please.

Hello John,
I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,
