Nothing you can do here try the spare key and if this is the same then its a dealer only job or a auto locksmith to re-programme it for you ,if you only have one key then the chip may have dropped out of the key fob ,if you have a remote start alarm thing then this could be faulty as they often go wrong.Either way their is no way you can start the vehicle as the immobilisor is to prevent anyone from stealing the car by hot wiring it which some deliquents still think they can do and this is down to watching too many TV programmes it just doesnt happen on newer cars over the last 20 yrs
Programming When Key added or replaced. System malfunction. How -
98MY Keys can only be programmed using diagnostic equipment. NOTE: A maximum of 4 keys can be programmed. How - 99MY
Switch ignition ON. Insert key to be programmed into driver's door lock. Lock vehicle manually. Press lock or unlock button. Wait at least 1 second. Press lock or unlock button again. Vehicle horn sounds to indicate correct programming. Keys can also be programmed using diagnostic equipment
Above is how to re-programme a replacement key/remote
When you use the key to start the car the alarm will disarm. You can now purchase replacement key fob's from Autozone. They are easy to program and cheaper than the dealer. I would recommend checking ebay as well for a replacement fob.
Programming a new Key
Replacing a missing master key is quite expensive from Land Rover, try not to get sucked into the extra cost of "Dealer coding" You can do this yourself in 2 minutes by following the simple process below.
1) Get in and close all doors. Turn ignition on and off quickly and remove the key (all within about 5 seconds).
2) Within 30 seconds of turning the ignition off, while holding down the "unlock" button, press the "lock" button three times. Release the "unlock" button. (You may or may not get the confirmation from the door locks.) Holding the key at your head level provides best results as the key sensor is in the side window pillar.
3) Repeat for each key you want to initialize within 30 seconds after the last one you initialized (if you have more).
4) Right after doing the last key, quickly put the key back in the ignition and turn it on/off again to finalize.
You cannot disable the immobiliser. If it were that easy, any car theif could defeat it by searching the internet. If you dont have any more master keys, you will have to have your local Toyota dealer reseed (reprogram) the immobiliser code, and program new keys for you. It should be about 2 hours labor and cost of keys, but only a dealer can do it. They need to use the Toyota scan tool, and access a Toyota only website with security codes.
To re programme your key if your fob has three buttons is as follows. Turn the ignition key in quick succession from off to ignition on 4 times. You should hear a chime to indicate programme mode. Quickly remove the key and press the lock button followed by the unlock button. Wait until you hear the chime again and see if the fob works. If it does not operate the central locking, see if you can open the tailgate with the fob, I guess you have a three button remote? If it doesn't, repeat the above but quicker!! it should programme quite easily. When you checked the fuse, did you take it out? I suggest you remove the fuse and wait 30 seconds and put back in, get someone in the car to see if any doors respond to you replaceing the fuse. recheck the fob operation and the key, this maybe the answer.
