We had a problem with ours about a year ago (90 Prado), separate key and imobiliser/alarm.
Our just stopped working took it to Toyota and a few autoelectrician, all said the same thing bok it in we'll have to check out all the wiring, once we know the problem then fix it, might be quick and easy repair or a complicated expensive one, no one would give us a quote.
On the way home, Sandy suggested disconnecting the battery and reconnecting might work like rebooting a computer. Well we rang Toyota to let them know what we did and that we didn't need to book it in anymore.
Has worked faultlessly ever since. For those interested it stopped working right after a lightning storm, with a lot of strikes near our house. Not sure if that had something to do with it though!
Still have the instructions here somewhere for reprogramming the remote, actually was almost worth the hassle to see a young
Toyota employee, follow the instructions, you have to get in and out of the car, press this and that, clap your hands stomp you feet. He must have tried at least three times.
