Question about 1999 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

How can I tell if my 1999 Toyota Avalon has a transponder key. I have lost my keys and a locksmith told me it would be $99 if it is not a transponder key and $165 if it is a transponder key. My key is metal but there is a "black plastic wrap" around the key

    I called the dealership and was advised they would have to replace the entire "key ignition" which cost $1500 but Toyota would pay for the part 1 time but I would have to pay the labor which was $295. Fortunately, I was able to locate the key. It was in the passenger side outside door lock (my stupidity)

How to bypass immobilize on a 2016 Toyota sienna threw keys in fire by accident and burnt the transponder


I'm not sure it's possible to bypass the immobolizer.
It may need to be towed to a Toyota dealer to have a new key/transponder programmed to the vehicle.
It may be possible to have a locksmith do it onsite...but that depends on the vehicle. Many have to be programmed by a dealer.

Locked keys in 1999 lincoln town car executive and no keyless entry. can I gain entrance without an expensive locksmith?


Hello Jennifer Jackson...

No... even LINCOLN windows are harder to break
(sorry... your LINCOLN is pretty secure).

Worse... the best price I've paid to get a double sided
PATS (passive anti-theft system) key cut = $6.

Bring your own key... But this was all about the price of PREVENTING your current situation... (oops).

If your ONLY key is truly "inside"...
Your goose is pretty much cooked... The cost of
the LOCKSMITH is pretty trivial compared to your
alternatives... Dealers will zing you MUCH BETTER
than your "expensive locksmith"...

But what ever you do... (my recommendation)... Since
you prefer not to be prepared... (no door code or FOB)
Don't pass on the opportunity to have that same SMITHY
at least tell you about your door code POSSIBILITIES
or at least program a remote FOB for you ...

A RESPONSIBLE "expensive locksmith" will
explain the WISDOM of NEVER having less than 2 (TWO) transponder keys. (by reading your owners manual you can program the FOBs yourself (FREE).

How do you manage the "no" keyless entry...?
I remain pretty sure the number pad... & KEY FOB
(wireless transmitter) were standard equipment...

2 SPARE keys minimum... ALWAYS.

Lost all keys to 2001 Toyota Avalon. Dealer says I must buy a new computer in order to have new keys set for this vehicle. Is there any other cheaper solution?


the best thing i can suggest is find a locksmith who specializes in making car keys. something similar happened to my brother and my friend. my friend lost his keys, to an older acura, the locksmith, he got a code off of the glove compartment, and cut the key based on that code. my brother, has a 2001 audi a4(similar key system), he broke his key, he went to the dealer and they were charging him 400 dollars for a new key. so he got an uncut key from ebay for 15 dollars, took it to the same locksmith, cut the key based on the broken one, and only charged him 20 dollars. 35 compared to 400, huge difference. i know its different situations but i think a good locksmith will be able to make the key for you without charging you all that extra stuff. if you live in the cerritos, california area, i can tell you the exact location of the lock smith. if not, i will gladly help you in your search for one, or any other assitance you may need. i put a link to an ebay key that should be for your car, uncut of course. i hope this helps, and goodluck.

The first thing to do is try another key. Perhaps your transponder key has failed.

Toyota avalon 2001 starting problem(transponder


Sure, I would sell you the same parts, IF I was interested in robbing you, BUT, I have no interest in having dissatisfied customers...So, here is what I need you to do: Call this number: 1-877-517-LOCK
This is my local locksmith,and he is cool...Tell them that I gave you this number. He has a machine, on his truck, that will reprogram your key to match the ECU/barrel combo in your car. Now, I do not expect you to have him come to your location, but, he may give you the info that HE has, his machine, and then you could call local locksmiths to see if they have the same gizmo that he has, to solve your problem. Secondly, there is an ECU exchange program from Toyota, that your dealer ssomehow neglected to tell you about, but it would cost you about 700.00 to get you going. Call the locksmiths first, and get back to me if my guy won't help you. This is the best that I can do, up to this point. Hope this helps. Advise of what transpires.
