RAV4 Keys 2004

Recommended Posts

I have just bought a 3-door 2004 RAV4. 

The previous owner gave me a genuine Toyota key that works correctly but has no remote buttons, and a separate Toyota key that does not fit in the locks but the buttons open and close the doors.  What have I got and how can I get some keys that work AND operate the remote door locking?

Did he mentioned why the 2 keys? I presume ignition barrel was changed?

I believe the ignition and door barrels are all original.

I think the key which operates the door and starts the car could be the service key.

The key with remote buttons has the wrong blade cross-section so I think it came from a different car.

The buttons work but the key is useless.

I just tried the ignition key in the glovebox.  It does not work.  I therefore conclude that I only have the service key.

Purchase a new remote case from EBay and get the key cut to the pattern of the key that currently works. Transfer the remote module from the old remote to the new remote. The old module may be fitted with the correct immobiliser chip so check if the new remote key will start the car. If not, you’ll need to swap the chip in the remote module with the chip that’s embedded in the original key. There’s YouTube videos on doing this.
