Hello Toyota geniuses! I hope that perhaps someone can shed some light on my car problems!
Car Model: 2000 Avalon XLS with Immobilizer
Symptom: Key turns 'loosely' in the ignition
Diagnosis: Broken Ignition Lock Cylinder
Question: What is the cheapest option to repair this? What would the process be?
There are replacement parts online that range in price from $45 - $225, some stating specifically that they do not have immobilizer, some that state that they do have immobilizer, and some that don't mention immobilizer at all.
I have heard that a local locksmith may be able to help with this issue in some fashion?
Looking for lowest cost option to get car up and running.
I live in southern california in this area: Google Maps Link
if anyone has any local suggestions
If anyone other information would be useful -- let me know and I will try my best to provide it.
