Did a search and could not find a specific answer.

My wife's new TRD Sport has the engine immobilizer system. We received three master keys (no valet key) with the truck -- all "chipped".

1. Can a locksmith duplicate the Toyota immobilizer system keys or must it be done by the dealer?

2. If duplicated by the dealer what is the approximate cost.

3. Can a locksmith make a "regular unchipped" key that will open the doors or must "chipped key" be used for unlocking the doors?

Thanks.

Well not sure what if any difference from my 09 to you 11 but you can always have a unchipped key made. Its the first thing I did on my way home the day I got my Tacoma. And as for the chipped keys last time I looked they were only available from the dealer and there is a process to progam it into the computer price vary from one stealership to the next, and dont know how many keys it can have in memory

chipped key

ya the chipped keys at the local dealers here run about $200 ea. aftermarket one's can be done by a locksmith but are still around $150.00

my question is, what if you have an unchipped key made. will it still start the vehicle, open doors, etc. ?

Non Transponder keys do not start the car, they will open them. A blank Transponder key is $47.19 MSRP and I offer TN members 30% off MSRP which makes them $33.03 each and I only charge actual shipping costs plus $1.00 - $2.00 for materials, etc.

yes I can ship to Canada but Canadian customers are responsible for all duties and taxes.

As to how many can be programed: A maximum of 5 master key codes and 3 sub-key codes can be registered.

Around here, the local Ace Hardware now claims they can make chipped keys. Rumored to be $50 - 80, haven't checked it out yet.
