Go to a dealership, where they can cut you a new key, given the VIN. Should cost about $10.

Ooops... Was the new ignition switch rekeyed to match the original?... If not, then my suggestion won't work.

The dealer would need the VIN or key number to cut a new key. If you don't have the key number written down somewhere, it's also stamped on the passenger side door lock cylinder for 1st Gen Avalons.

Best bet is to get the key code on the passenger lock cylinder.

Here's mines from a Camry, but I believe the Avalon should be very similar.


You may need to call around. Some of the locksmith I called locally here said they did not cut keys from factory key code. Found one and so far he's been good.

EDIT: wanted to point out, this will only work if all the locks on the car is original. If a lock has been changed and not matching....then this won't really work in your case.
