I am seeking your advice and directions.
Unfortunately our Toyota Prius plugin was stolen 1 months ago for the driveway.
We purchased Toyota Rav4 2004- manual-petrol 2 weeks ago and discover that we have one key only, which is the valet (grey) key. we do not have any extra key - no master/transponder and no remote (fob) keys. I do understand that I am unable to program any key or fob key with a valet key. (please confirm?!)
Speaking to the local Toyota dealer I discover that they can not help me if I do not have a master/transponder key (black cover), unless they replace the entire lock/mechanism at a very high costs.
So here are my questions:
1. Can I have a master/transponder key made somewhere else by providing the car VIN number?
2. If/once having the Master/transponder key - will I be able to program a fob/remote key with the master/transponder key?.
3. Can the above be made online or do I need to take the care over?
Thank you and looking forward to your response
