  1. Avalon 3rd Generation (2005-2012)
    For the most part what is being referred to below as a "key" or "fob" is actually a proximity remote you need to have on your person in order to start your "push button" start car. Which oddly enough does have a hidden physical key that only allows you to open the drivers side door, gain access...
  2. Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Hey all. This just started. Very disturbing because I live and travel in a very remote area. Went out to start my truck yesterday and the key wouldn't turn. Jiggled the steering wheel, which was not locked and then it locked. Opened the driver's door and closed it, did some other nonsense moves...
  3. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    Hi! The key fob for my 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid recently seems to have died. I replaced the battery, but that wasn't the issue. So I bought a replacement fob online (with strong positive reviews), since Toyota charges an arm and a leg for replacements. However, I'm still having trouble. I'm...

    Hi Everyone, I have a 2014 Camry SE. We have lost all of the keys for the vehicle and it is sitting in my driveway locked. I called the local toyota dealer and they told me it would be $180 for the key and $300 for the programming and I will have to have it towed to the dealership. Do I have...

    Does the VIP Remote Start / Key Fob system have a fuse and/or relay? I tried to remote start our sequoia with the key fob, the parking lights blinked as they should but it didn't start. Then the key fob would no longer work to unlock the door locks. It acts like a fuse or relay quite working...

    First, please, before I begin - I realize I am an idiot. My wife realizes she married an idiot. This is all my fault, and I'm trying to make it all better. OK. we lost our non-smart keys to Highlander somewhere in last couple days. I believe they fell into recyclables, and compacted sometime...

  8. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Hey guys, I’m thinking of buying an extra key to have it cut and programmed, as the car only came with one when I bought it. The question is: how does one go about programming a new key properly? I know I can have it cut almost anywhere, but having it programmed to lock, unlock, and pop the...
  9. Sienna 1st Generation (1998-2003)
    Hi folks! 2002 Sienna XLE owner here - After trying repeatedly to reprogram the wireless door lock control system, nothing happens - as in there is no cycling at end of reprogram. I have tried every method mentioned on this and other forums (door open, 5 times lock/unlock, door closed, open...
  10. Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
    I purchased a brand new 2019 Camry SE end of August. Since then, I've noticed that both of my keys don't work from more than about 5 yards away. Is this intended or could there be something wrong with my key or the car sensors? I can usually use electronic keys from at least 10 yards out in...
  11. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Looking for instructions on how to program a transponder key for a 2007 Corolla CE. I've found and tried instructions for other models, but unable to locate instructions of the 07 corolla. This key does not have keyless entry. Can anybody help?
  12. RAV4 3rd Generation (2006-2012)
    2009 Rav4 Limited. 3 button rectangular remote with slide out key. I have only one remote. What is the most economical way to have a back-up plan to unlock and start the car if I were to lose the key fob? thanks! (also, is it possible to search within a sub-fourum)
  13. Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    I'm looking to make an extra copy of the key, so we can keep a spare at home since both of us are carrying the other two. From what I read up on, Toyota usually charges a lot, so my best bet would be to buy an OEM key online and get it cut and programmed at a locksmith that has the proper...
  14. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I have a 2001 Toyota Camry LE with power locks. I am unable to use the key to lock/unlock the passenger-side front door. When I put the key in the door I am able to get roughly an 1/8th inch movement of the key. The power lock button on both front doors does lock/unlock all 4 doors though. I...
  15. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi there! I have a 2001 Camry and my ignition switch seems a bit worn, instead of going to dealer i thought i could buy a "Push Button" with a few "Toggle" switches to create the same 3 levels of ignition that the lock cylinder does. I was hoping to splice the wires of the ignition harness and...
  16. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Hi Expert, I've done some google search but didn't get any definite answer as how do I program the keyless entry for unlock/lock the door? do I need Techstream for this or there is another way? I know I need techstream to program immobilizer but wasn't sure if I need it for keyless entry as I...
  17. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    How do I remove/replace the cylinder lock on the trunk lid of a 1997? The interior release mechanism and the latching mechanism are fine. I just need to replace the cylinder lock because it will not allow me to insert the key. Perhaps a previous owner may have replaced it, but I only got one...
  18. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    According to my local locksmith, my worn out 2001 key contains a "chip", that must be programmed for an additional $30.00, $67.00 total for key. Dealer is $45 + $65 to program. However I just wrapped my good key in foil and tested it. I worked perfectly. There are no electronic contacts on...
  19. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I got a car with just one key. Its a Toyota Camry SE, 2016. I want to get a duplicate. Dealer wants to charge over $300 for a blank and programming ! I have seen blank keys on Ebay for approx $50, but they need to be cut and programmed. I really do not need the transponder ( wireless...
