Toyota Tacoma key replacement
Toyota Tacoma keys have changed much over the years. From the early years when the key was just a simple key, to the later years when the key starts to have features such as an electronic chip hidden in the key head, and in general has become a high security key.
There are a few places that you can have a new replacement key made. You can even buy the key blank yourself online, and have it cut and programmed at your neighborhood Toyota dealership or at a locksmith shop. A few of the websites we recommend are Ebay.com, Amazon.com, and Ikeyless.com. Regardless, if you just need a key copy or have just lost the key and need a new one, before you buy a new key blank or just want to find out the price, you should first find out what kind of a key your Toyota Tacoma requires. Below, we have listed for you Toyota Tacoma keys by the years.
If your Toyota Tacoma was made in the years 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, or 2004, then you have just a regular key, or what we like to call an old fashioned key. These keys are very easy to make. If you just need a key copy, you can have one made in many hardware stores or locksmith shops. If you lost the key, you can have a new key made for you at a Toyota dealership or with an automotive locksmith. If you want to save some money and want to do some of the work yourself, find out how to disassemble the passenger side door lock. On this lock, you will find the key code for your truck. You can take this key code to a locksmith and ask them to make you a new key.
If your Toyota Tacoma was made in the years 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, or 2010, then you have a transponder chip key. This key can be a high security key or just a regular key. What they have in common with each other is that they will need to be programmed to your truck. You can have these keys made at a Toyota dealership or through a locksmith. The difference between these two places is that if you lost your key and don’t have a spare one, the locksmith will be able to come right to your truck and make you a key on spot.
If your Toyota Tacoma truck was made in the years 2011, 2012, 2013, or 2014, then your Toyota Tacoma truck key will need to be one with the letter ‘G’ stamped on the blade. These keys will also need to be programmed to your truck.
My key won’t turn the ignition in my Toyota Tacoma truck
If your key won’t turn the ignition, or is even stuck in the ignition, it can be because either your key is worn out or one of the parts inside the ignition lock is stuck. We recommend to first make a new key either by the key code or VIN number and if this doesn’t work, call an automotive locksmith and have them rekey the ignition.
