2013 Auris - Lost Smartkey :( replacement?

Recommended Posts

so, it seems I lost one of the keyfobs for keyless entry 😞 toyota want 350 for a new cut and programmed key,

has anyone had to get a spare key? is it easy to erase a second hand key from a breaker before programming via techstream?

open to suggestions to see if I can get away with something less expensive :S

Thanks!

I had a look at this a while back.  If I remember correctly, the smartkey has a unique code that stays with the smartkey.  You use Techstream to configure that code into the cars list of smartkeys.

But I think it is the case that you have to delete all smartkeys before you can make a new list  that would include the latest key.  If this is true, that must lead to a fairly tense few minutes whilst you have no keys assigned to your car.  You would have to make sure your laptop didn't run out of Battery etc, etc.!

Perhaps someone could confirm if this is the case?

I was told by toyota tech that each key can only be programmed once although not sure if he was telling porkies i suspect he was but cant be sure

You can get replacements for £180 via auto locksmiths long as you have a original to copy

Where do you think that you lost it? I would be concerned about somebody finding the lost one & being able to access/take your car so I would investigate whether the transponder code can be changed ( I assume that you wouldn't go as far as also changing the door lock but if you were paranoid about it you would).

I was concerned too, and have found instructions to remove lost keys via techstream! In the meantime I have been able to find the lost key and all is good. I will keep the links to get a new key just in case I need one in the near future. 

 

Thanks everyone!
