Toyota introduced microchip keys in the late 90’s to add an extra layer of protection from theft. Before microchip keys, anyone could make a copy of your keys at any hardware store. Toyota keys now require a very specific programming procedure that can not be done without a professional and a very sophisticated computer. Fortunately, we keep a selection of many different computers that we keep up to date with the latest software and are familiar with the various programming routines that all of the many Toyota years and models take.
When Toyota first started introducing microchips in the late 90’s and early 00’s, the process for adding new keys was not refined. Vehicles manufactured during this period do not take a programming procedure through the OBD that is conventional to later models. These vehicles require the ECU to be manually removed and reflashed. We have the tools and experience to safely remove your car’s computer and reflash the entire system to accept brand new keys to start your vehicle. Even if your vehicle has no existing keys, we can come to you and get you going same day.
The latest version of Toyota keys are called smart keys or proximity keys. These keys do not use key blades at all to start your vehicle. The system in your vehicle can sense if the key is inside and you press a button to actually start your engine. With these keys, you can drive around without even taking the keys out of your pocket.
We understand everything there is to know about all of the different kinds of smart keys that Toyota takes. We will know exactly what kind of frequency your smart key needs to give off for the vehicle to sense it as well as how to program a blank OEM smart key to your vehicle’s system. We carry every different smart key, so give us a call if you would like a new one and we will either prepare our computer and remote for your arrival or we will send a technician to you in the event that you do not currently have any keys that work with your vehicle.
