Toyota and Lexus belong to the same group so there is some common ground in terms of key replacement for both car types. The Auto Locksmith offers a mobile car key replacement service for Toyota cars to the general public and motor trade throughout London and the Home Counties.
Earlier models of Toyota cars don’t have an immobiliser box and therefore there is no requirement for a transponder chip in the key. Replacing Toyota keys is therefore a relatively simple and straightforward job for The Auto Locksmith. Toyota Models made post 1995 use an immobiliser system that shuts off the engine if no transponder is read from the key. With some models such as the Avensis, the immobiliser is built into the key pick up collar. Whatever the model, The Auto Locksmith can provide replacement Toyota keys for all of the systems.
With newer model Toyotas, the key programming is not done with a programming tester. Instead keys are hard coded to the ECU or immobiliser unit. A Toyota main dealer will charge up to £1200 to supply a new ECU and lock set. Save yourself time and money! The Auto Locksmith has the necessary skills and equipment to be able to cut new keys from the existing locks at the roadside, making any delay as minimal as possible. Our car locksmiths are able to de-solder a chip from the ECU or separate immobiliser box, read the E-eprom and write a new transponder chip into it. The cost for this is some 60% less than what the dealer would charge. That represents a huge saving.
