Replacement Car Key For Auris
Posted 04 January 2011 - 04:28 PM
I feel like I am being given the run round by everyone regarding getting a new key for my 07 Auris so thought I would ask for some advice here... I bought the car with only key which has the unlock and lock buttons. Toyota initially quoted me £45 for a standard (no buttons) key and £200 for a button one. Now they tell me that I can only get a key like the one the car was issued with. My local locksmith believes they can make me one with a transponder (by copying my current key) for £35 quid. This would not have the buttons to open and close but would have a chip that their machine would copy the info on my original onto so the immobilser would work. Does anyone know if this will work? Has anyone not used Toyota to get their replacement keys?
Thanks for any help in advance!!

Its a shame Toyota don't seem to have a similar method.

then this for the blank shaft..
get the shaft cut to fit then follow the steps on this link..
you then should have a new transponder key for less than £30

Thanks for all the replies and advice. I decided to go back to the locksmith and see if he would offer me a refund if the key with the copied key didnt work. He was a bit shakey about whether it would and wouldnt offer me a refund so I have left it for now. The ebay thing is tempting but it didnt work when a friend tried it. I might just go to Toyota now the £200 plus quote is a bit of a joke but I suppose if I was to lose the key it would be several hundred to fix things....
