  1. This website lists many of the programming sequences for Toyota keys and remotes. They are all a FREE download. www.carkeyhelp.co.uk
  2. Try the key programming instructions from here: www.carkeyhelp.co.uk If that doesn't work it may be beause you don't have a master key or the replacement key has the wrong transponder chip inside.
  3. You can get key and remote programming instructions from here: www.carkeyhelp.co.uk
  4. The advice given by James is spot on. The problem with not being able to start the car with the new key may be that you have the wrong transponder chip inside. Several different ones have been used on Toyota vehicles over the years. Or, as James has pointed out, your existing key is a valet key.
  5. The black key is a master key and can be used to program additional keys into the car. The grey key is a valet key; it should start the car but can't be used to program additional keys. This website tells you how to program an additional master key: www.carkeyhelp.co.uk

  8. Avensis 1998 – 06/2000 Spwolf is correct. The immobiliser and central locking / alarm systems are separate. The following sequence should program a remote into the central locking / alarm ECU: Sit in driver’s seat. All doors closed and no key in the ignition switch. Open the driver’s door. Insert a programmed key into the ignition. Do not turn it. Remove the key. Close the driver’s door. Within 40 seconds Open, close and open again the driver’s door. Within 40 Seconds Insert a programmed key into the ignition. Do not turn it. Remove the key. Close the driver’s door. Insert a programmed key into the ignition. Switch ON and OFF once to program remote and keep remotes already programmed Or Switch ON and OFF twice to program remote and erase remotes already programmed Remove key from ignition. The doors should now lock and unlock: Once if keeping remotes already programmed Or Twice if erasing remotes already programmed Within 25 seconds 1). Press and hold remote lock button 2). Press remote unlock button 5 times 3). Release remote lock button 4). Press remote lock or unlock button once The doors should lock and unlock Repeat steps 1 to 4 for additional remotes. A maximum of 4 remotes can be programmed. I apologise to anyone who has sent me an email to which I haven't yet replied. I am working my way through them.
  9. I am able to cut virtually any auto key. This is done on the most advanced computerised key cutting machines available, manufactured by Silca of Italy. www.silca.it All keys are cut as originals - not as copies. A copy of a worn key is a new worn key! If you have the code number for your key I can cut it straight from that. Avensis 1998 - 06/2000 has a code number from 1 to 13284 and uses a Texas 4C transponder chip. Cost £21.15 inclusive of VAT plus £0.92 recorded delivery. Avensis 07/2000 on has a code number from 1 to 13284 and uses a Texas crypto 4D transponder chip. These transponders are harder to obtain at present and are therefore more expensive. Cost £25.85 inclusive of VAT plus £0.92 recorded delivery. If you don't have the key code number you can send me your original key, preferably by Special Delivery with a value of £1000, I would decode the key and cut an additional one. I would also provide the code number. Return would be by Special Delivery insured for £1000 at an additional charge of £3.28. You must confirm the honesty of anyone you intend to send vehicle keys or codes. If in doubt don't take the chance. I can also cut a key to the ignition, door or boot lock if you don't have any keys at all. Email me for details at pat-boyle@ntlworld.com
  10. You can program an additional key into the Avensis 1998 - 06/2000 by following this sequence: Open driver's door and insert programmed black key into ignition. Close door. 1). Within 15 seconds Switch ignition on and off 4 times. Switch ignition on. Open and close the driver's door. 2). Within 20 seconds Open and close driver's door 5 times. Remove key from ignition. 3). Within 10 seconds Insert black key to be programmed into ignition. Switch on and leave for 1 minute. Remove key. Repeat step 3 for further keys. To exit programming open and close the driver's door. If your key is grey in colour then it cann't be used to program additional keys. I can cut Toyota / Lexus keys at a very reasonable cost. Email me for details. If you do not have a programmed black key for the vehicle I can recode the engine ECU. Again, email me for details. Please state model, year of manufacture and engine type (VVTI or not VVTI).
