Spare Key Needing Some Help

Recommended Posts

Hello, My dad recently bought a 2001 Avensis, It has only come with one key and typically the Battery on the key is flat, I can't replace the Battery as someone has mashed the screw on the key so I can't take it apart. So the current key is fine to use in the lock and start but obviously its a bit awkward and i'm just waiting for my dad to lose it to be honest.

So I know i need another key, what is my best option? I have been looking on ebay i missed one last night which was the same as my key a 2button key with a Valeo blade. If i do manage to get one of these and then get it cut can i then just go through the sequences listed on the site for getting the car to accept the new key?

Thanks in advance

Dan

There have been many threads on this subject on this forum and differing results depending on model and year. It's worth a try, but you could get a screw extractor at your local DIY store to get the screw out of your present key.

Hi thanks for that, I have bought a new key from ebay and the guy has also sent me a second casing so i was thinking i could try and finish butchering the existing key and transfer all the bits into the new one and get the other new key cut but i'll obviously have to try and reprogramme this key.

Try this it worked for my 51,Procedure for your early Avensis model pre - 2003

1. The vehicle should be in the following condition:

A. The key is NOT inserted in the ignition.

B. The driver's door is open.

C. The driver’s door is UNLOCKED.

2. Insert the key into the ignition switch and then pull it out.

3. Press the Master Door Lock Switch (this would be the switch IN the car) 5 times from Lock to Unlock.

4. Close the Driver's door then open it.

5. Repeat step 3.

6. Now select the mode by inserting the key into the ignition switch and turning it to the Run or On position. The programming mode is determined by the amount of times you go from key off to the key on position and back before pulling the key out.

A. 1 time is the Add mode. This is used only on some models and it allows you to add a remote to the already existing remotes. The ECU confirms this by locking and unlocking the door locks automatically after you remove the key.

B. 2 times is the Erase mode which will erase all previously programmed remotes and allow you to program new ones. The ECU confirms this mode by locking and unlocking the door locks twice after you remove the key

C. 3 times is the third mode which tells you how many remotes are already programmed to the ECU. It confirms this locking and unlocking the doorlocks the amount of times applicable to the remotes coded. If no remotes are programmed then the ECU locks and unlocks the door locks 5 times. The ECU will hold up to 4 remotes at any one time.

7. Press the Lock and Unlock buttons on the remote simultaneously for 1.5 sec and then press either button by itself for 1 sec.

8. The ECU will perform the Lock/Unlock automatically to confirm that the 1st remote is stored by the ECU. Repeat step 7 immediately with another remote and continue until all remotes are registered.

9. Shut the driver’s door and try all remotes.
