Spare Key Needed For 2003 Rav4

Recommended Posts

Hi all...

just bought a three year old (2002 - 52 plate) RAV4... very nice.

It's an ex-lease car and came with only one master key.

How / where can I get a spare without having to take out a new mortgage...??

I've looked online and it appears you can make a car accept a new transponder key by a combination of ignition, door opens and accelerator pumps???

Then there's aneed to make the lock/inlock/alarm functions work..

I've seen transponder keys on ebay for not a lot, and some US websites, but these keys don't all have lock/unlock buttons

Seems like a degree course is needed... or perhaps one of you out there with the knowledge?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated... Thanks for reading.

Our local locksmith who specialises in car keys will cut a toyota key, with transponder for £25. He needs the original key and then has a machine that copies the chip code onto the new key.

As for the remote control for the central locking/alarm, if you buy one from eBay from the usa, you program it as below. It sounds quite complicated, but there is plenty of time to do the things. Although, the neighbours may wonder what the hell you are doing keep opening and shutting the car door!!

Keyless Entry Remote Transmitter - Programming July 19, 2002

To Program Wireless Transmitters:

1: With the driver's door open and unlockedand the key out of the ignition:-

2: Insert and remove the key from the ignition switch 2 times within 5 seconds.

3: Close and open driver's door TWICE within 40 seconds.

4: Insert the key into the ignition and remove it.

5: Close and open the driver's door twice within 40 seconds.

6: Insert the key into the ignition.

7: Close the door.

8: Turn the ignition switch from "Lock" to "On" and back to "Lock" at about 1 second intervals to select the desired mode:

Turn the ignition switch

1 time for ADD mode.

2 times for REWRITE mode.

3 times for CONFIRMATION mode.

5 times for PROHIBITION mode.

9: Remove the key from the ignition.

10: To confirm your mode selection, the power locks will now cycle "lock" to "unlock" a number of times corresponding to your key cycles

in step 8.

NOTE:

If Confirmation or Prohibition modes have been selected, opening the door will complete the procedure.

For Add or Rewrite modes, within 40 seconds of Door Lock confirmation...

A: Press both transmitter Lock and Unlock buttons simultaneously between 1 and 1.5 seconds and release.

B: Within 3 seconds of step A, press the transmitter Lock button for more than 1 second and release.

If the transmitter has been successfully programmed, the power locks will cycle "lock" to "unlock" once at this time. If there are problems with the transmitter or the procedure up to this point, the locks will cycle twice. If this occurs, verify that you have received the correct transmitter, and then repeat the above procedure.

If multiple demotes are to be reprogrammed, repeat steps A-C. Open the Driver's Door.

Firsat off welcome to rthe club :thumbsup: ,Think its about £115 for a replacment key :eek:, its a bit complicated programing a new key, maybe best to let Toyota do it.

This is fantastic information, many many thanks.

Can I ask if you have the name and phone number of your local key-cutter as his price sounds very reasonable?

Regards
