How to Get a Replacement Toyota Ignition Key
Toyota replacement car keys can be ordered from an authorized Toyota service center by the registered owner of the car. For security reasons, the owner must appear in person, with current car registration and identification, and the names on all paperwork must match. If your key is a basic metal key that does not have a transponder chip, then the dealer can most likely cut a new key right away. If the key has an imbedded transponder chip, then you will need to bring the vehicle to the dealership to reprogram the new key.

Find a Toyota Authorized Service Center
Search on the Internet, or contact Toyota by telephone or email to find a Toyota Authorized Service Center.
Call the service center to get a price quote for the new key. If you are replacing a key with an embedded transponder chip, then you will most likely need to make a service appointment for reprogramming.
Appear in person at the Toyota service center with the current Vehicle Registration to prove ownership, your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), drivers license and payment for the replacement key.
