Proximity keys can be further divided into two types of keys. Smart keys and regular proximity keys. Both regular proximity keys and smart proximity keys have buttons in the head of the key. The difference between a smart proximity key and a regular proximity key is the smart keys are continually sending out a signal that your car can read so when you get near your vehicle, it will automatically unlock. Regular proximity keys require you to press the unlock button on the head of the key to unlock your vehicle.
This leaves you with 2 options.
Tow it to a dealer and pay to have the ECU replaced, synched to the car, and then to program in the brand new keys they sell. Make sure you are sitting down when you hear the price of that!
Call us. We can re-flash your current ECU and add in two keys for a fraction of the cost of a brand new part, labor to install and high programming fees.
Reflashing means that we write over the current files in the ECU and convert it back to its virgin unused state. After it’s been overwritten, we can add in new keys! Here is the list of vehicles that need to be reflashed if all keys are lost.
ES300 1998 – 2003
GS300 1998 – 2004
GS400 1998 – 2000
Avalon – Camry – Solara
The 1998 – 1999 Toyota Avalon, 1998 Toyota Camry and the 1998 Toyota Solara have the potential of having a Delco brand engine control unit. Delco boxes are rare and require a very special reader to reset (re-flash) the unit. If your vehicle has a Delco box we CAN reset these but the cost is higher.
