Toyota keys are not expensive anymore.
Elite Locksmiths are Newcastle’s only Locksmith used by the dealers to cut and program keys and reset the immobilisers in their cars. Toyota immobiliser systems present a unique challenge as they have a form of protection not found in other vehicles, hence the data in the files in the ECU can’t be written to via the obd port with a scan tool unless you have a working master key.
Toyotas from 1998 to 2009
Toyotas from this era generally have to have the ECU removed, we have to access and exchange data on certain component in the ECU, there are some exceptions where we can access the data with the scan tool, therefore either way (unless there are external issues causing faults) these models are no longer a pain when all keys are lost.
Toyotas from 2009 to 2016/17
This era saw the introduction of the “g” 80-bit chips and just recently the “h” 128-bit chips. The cryptography employed in these vehicles and accessibility of components make them a big dollar spend.
We have the latest equipment to sort these cars at approx half the dealer cost.
Elite Mobile Locksmiths are here to help and save you money.
