Dealer only to re programme key into car it can only be done with vehicle, not away from it .Sorry for no easy fix unless you want to disengage the factory immobiliser,which if its a diesel is a fairly simple procedure but not for a petrol engine

No spark

in order for there to be a spark you must have the engine turning over. have your battery load tested then clean the terminals. While a helper turns the key to start check for activation at the starter. Using a test light is the easiest way to do it

Car wouldn't start. Autozone showed the battery to be good, so I changed the alternater. Ran fine for a week. Car wouldn't start again so I changed the battery. Ran fine for a couple weeks. Car won't...

Does the starter turn the engine when you try to start it or does it seem like the battery is flat again ? If the engine is turning over with the starter you should check to see if it has spark to the spark plugs . You can check this by taking the coil wire off the distributer end , inserting a spark plug into it and hold the side of the plug against any ground or metal part of the engine and get someone to crank the engine. You should see a bluish white spark at the end of the plug. If you have spark reinsert the plug wire . Now do a fuel pressure test. You need a test gauge for this. There is a test point { usually looks like a tire stem like on a bycicle with a cap on it} on the fuel rail. The test gauge will screw onto it and when you turn on the key you should get a reading os 35 to 45 lbs. Those are the first things to check if its not the battery or charging system.

My 1996 model Toyota Landcruiser is giving me starting problem. I have to use a longer self & sometimes engine cranks with much effort. The battery is new. Where is the problem? is it with starter...

if the glow plugs are originals they may need replacements soon.The starter can be removed and bench tested easily. If mounted in a vise securely you can test it direct for drag

1996 S-10 cranks but no fire

did you check to see if fuel pump is pumping. fuel filter isnt clogged is it? but you're sure there is no spark. because if there is spark it could be air flow problems.
and you changed the ignition switch so that's not it, how about the starter. is there any noise coming from the starter when you turn key? if it isn't lined up right.
there has to be spark if you did what you said take off a wire at night and try it . electricity to start goes, ign switch battery starter(is there a relay on s10s cant remember), the alternator is here coil/distributor to wires to plugs to gasoline

also it could be the wires coming from the battery , check them for corrosion. if they are really corroded could be problem. and make sure your ground is good contact. ive seen corrosion inside wires causing no spark.
just a few ideas to check.
