Toyota key code lookup
You do not need to contact anyone really to get your Toyota Prius key code. The key code has no use beside just providing you with the information for cutting the key blade. This key code has nothing to do with programming your key to your car. To get the key code all you really need is a T25 Torx Screwdriver in order to release the screw from the passenger door lock. If the passenger door does not have a lock, use the driver side door.
Toyota Prius smart key replacement
Mile High Locksmith is an expert automotive locksmith company located in Denver, Colorado. We have been working on Toyota locks and keys for many years and would like to share some useful information about Toyota Prius smart keys.
If you just need a key copy, or if you lost the key and need a new key replacement, or if you’re not sure who has your key and you would like to rekey your car, here are your options:
Push to start
First, you cannot replace the key, program the key, or key copy your Toyota Prius smart key yourself. For any of these services, you will need to contact either an automotive locksmith company with the right equipment to program proximity smart key systems, or contact a Toyota dealership.
Your Toyota Prius smart key has two parts. The first part is the fob itself, or in professional terms, you can call it a proximity key fob. The second part is the emergency key, (smart key insert), that been created to only unlock the door in a case the push buttons on the key will not work.
Program Toyota smart key fob
Your Toyota anti theft system is built in a way that if you have an existing key and you would like to just add a key you will be able to add up to four keys in the system. If you lost the key and have no spare key, in order to program a new key replacement, the locksmith or the dealership will need to erase all of the keys from the anti theft system memory and program the new key with a different code. By doing that your new key will become the master key for the car.
Rekey car locks
In a case you would like to change the keys for your Toyota Prius, all you really need to do is erase all of the keys from the anti theft system memory and reprogram either your existing key or a new key to your car. By doing that the key will receive a different code and any key that was not reprogramed will no longer work.
Before you replace your key or make a key copy you will need to know that from 2010 to 2016 Toyota has made four different types of keys for Toyota Prius.
The key insert has no chip and will not require any programming. In order to cut the key, you will need to contact either a Toyota dealership or an automotive locksmith company with a high security key cutting machine. For an example you can watch our video we have shared.
