    Default Not Vectra/Signum Related: Yaris Key

    Hi All,

    Mrs Dave recently got a Toyota Yaris but it only came with one Key (and not a very sophisticated key either! - picture below). I called the local Toyota dealer today and they reckon they want £170 for a new key which includes the key, cutting and programming.

    Has anyone else had a Toyota key cut and does this price sound about right and does anyone know if the key can be programmed without the aid of Dealer tools (and if so where I can get a cheaper key cut)?



    Cheers

    Dave

    sounds about right for toyota's.. they are flamin expensive for dealer only bits....

    you may be able to find a local auto electrician who could program it for you, but the remote key would still have to come from toyota's..

    I know ... I asked how much for a drivers side wiper arm too as it's juddering at the mo and I suspect the spring ... it's only a piece of not very long metal and a spring ... £42+VAT!

    The reason I asked is I've seen some keys on E-bay and as it doesn't look a very complex key I wondered

    Ah well thanks for checking anyway ... I did find something earlier ... link's saved on my laptop and I haven't looked at it properly yet ... it wasn't for a Yaris specifically but seemed like generic Toyota ... was talking about switching ignition on and off five times followed by opening and closing drivers door six times etc etc. Wonered if anyone had tried or heard of anything similar.
