hi all the transponder key can cost a lot of $$$ if you have lost your master key or if the ecu is full toyotas can only have 4 keys in it so if you are on the 4th key and you want a new key you will need to get a new ecu from toyota big $$$$ but so locksmiths can repair your old one and remove the old keys you do not have from the old ecu so you start back at the start like its a nuw ecu this can save lots of $$$ so look for a good locksmith the master locksmiths association can help www.mlaa.com.au or the locksmith that can help is s.a.s. locksmiths are big in to transponders and can get you going

There's a separate section on this website for Adverts. The forum page is not the place IMHO

obviously locksmith school did not teach punctuation the use of a full stop would help every now and then that way we would be able to read the text without turning blue that is what punctuation does it helps people read stuff just like they were talking if you are offering general advice about toyota keys then thats great but if you are just touting for business then please do it in the right place

Cheers

Tut Tut Steven,

Mother would have told you over and over that two wrongs do not a right make.

Didn't say it wouldn't make me smile but. [And I know you can't start a sentence with and and end it with but!!!]

Thanks locksmith, so s.a.s locksmiths can help with transponders huh? That is very re-assuring to know. :)

Can you also re-assure us that they are a trustworthy outfit who would not try to take advantage of a forum by getting in a free plug, and further that they are taking out a sponsorship deal with this site so that they can continue to help out users with generic locksmith-related problems that the users may have from time to time?? :)) Huh?

Signed,
Dorothy

Honda does the same with bikes, its called HISS Honda intergrated Security system.

4 keys, then you need to dish out $2000 for a new computer. Most people go for aftermarket ECUs

Locksmith,

The expert advice is welcome - and as long as you provide it without naming your business it will be well received.

I value reading the genuine information and user experiences with different products and services that I get here - It makes a refreshing change from the advertorials and propaganda that fills most magazines and media outlets. The problem comes when unscrupulous commercial operators attempt to advertise their own business under the pretence of informed and helpful discussion - If we tolerate this the independance and value of everyone's feedback is reduced.

It is nothing personal, just the way it is.

Cheers,
Pete

Hey there mr locksmith, yes that is good info that a lot of people may not know, having been through the dramas of trying to get a second transponder key for my 98 jackaroo, i purchased a blank $$ got it cut and then tried to program it with the tech2 unit at the holden dealer i was working for at the time.. for some unfound reason the ecu would not program the key as it said the key was already programmed ?? ( maybee bad key ). Anyway, someone mentioned that a locksmith might be able to 'ghost' the new key to the same data as the existing key, but i tried a few places and they could not help with this.. Is this possible ?? the transponder is a texas instuments unit operating with an isuzu ecu. The vehicle induction coil is working properly. ANY IDEAS ??? Thanks Brad.

yes you may need to erase old key from the ecu as you can only have 4 i think give this a go and yes its a texas chip if you have no luck look 4 a locksmith that has a ad100 it can erase old keys from the ecu so you can put a new one in

OK, will look for a locky with the ' ad100 ' machine. The tech2 showed only 2 keys programmed but i will try anything to get it working. Thanks again mr smith.

PS we get a lot of veiled ads on here so if this wasn't the intention, i apologise for some of the negative response you recieved. Thanks again for the info..
