Toyota Key Replacement Services You Can Count On

Toyota has been a leader in the auto industry since it made its first passenger car in 1936. Since then, it has given a lot of people and businesses reliable transportation.

Over the years, Toyota has introduced several features that make driving easier and more convenient. One of them is the key fob. With a key fob, you can get into your car quickly and easily, even if your hands are full.

While Toyota key fobs are built to last, they still suffer from wear and tear. Because of this, your key fob could stop working properly at any point.

At R&T’s Lock and Key, we provide Toyota key replacement services because we know how essential it is for you to have access to your vehicle. If you’ve misplaced or damaged your key, our locksmiths can make you a new one quickly and easily.

How to Tell When You Need a Replacement

Here are a few signs that it’s time to get a new Toyota key:

  • Your original key has signs of damage: Keys can get chipped, bent, or worn after prolonged use. It’s better to replace your key before it breaks if it’s showing symptoms of overuse.

  • You have misplaced your key: Your worst nightmare may be losing your keys, but we can make you a new one in no time.

  • You’re struggling to turn the vehicle on: If you’re using a fob key and finding it increasingly difficult to connect with the car or start the engine, it’s likely that the key was never properly programmed to the car or is now malfunctioning.


Steps For Getting a Toyota Car Key Replacement

Key replacement processes can vary. We can replace any key, no matter the make or model, so don’t worry if you’ve lost yours.

To verify that you are the car’s rightful owner, our staff will need to see your identification. That’s why you will need to bring the following items:

  1. A valid ID with your photo, such as a driver’s license

  2. Title to the vehicle or proof of insurance

  3. The vehicle’s registration card (or a copy)

  4. Your vehicle’s license plate number

  5. After verifying your ownership, we can cut you a new key to replace the one that was lost, stolen, or broken.

  6. We can either repair your key fob or replace it entirely.

  7. Claim your replacement key once it’s ready so you can hit the road!


How Much is a Toyota Key Fob Replacement?

There are several variables that affect the final cost:

  1. The type of key

  2. Your car’s make and model

  4. Where you live

How Long Does It Take To Replace a Toyota Car Key?














Being locked out of your car can be frustrating. Luckily, cutting a Toyota replacement key or programming a remote key only takes 15 to 30 minutes. However, the actual time may vary from vehicle to vehicle and the demand at the time.

Because a new transponder must be programmed into your car, this type of key will take longer to replace. In addition, your vehicle might require programming for any extra wireless functions you use.

What If My Replacement Key Doesn't Work?

If the doors still won’t unlock or the car still won’t start after you’ve replaced the key fob, the problem isn’t the key fob but the vehicle itself. This is the time to call roadside assistance and get to the nearest Toyota dealership for repairs.


However, most vehicles with smart technology or a keyless entry system have a hidden key within the remote, so check there if you need immediate access to your car.

Can you program a key fob without going to the dealership?

Yes, the key fob’s locking and unlocking features can be programmed without a trip to the dealership. However, you may need to visit the dealership or an auto locksmith if you want to reprogram the transponder so that the key will start the engine.

Do Toyota keys have a chip?

It depends. In older Toyota models, the TR47 key blade was the standard. These Toyota car keys do not contain chips, so you can easily have duplicates made with a key-cutting machine. However, Toyota car keys for newer models usually have a chip in them.
