Question about 2005 Toyota Avalon
Hello, thank you in advance for your help. I went out to warm up our 2006 avalon and the car is not recognizing the key fob I had with me and would not start. It's the keyless start where the keyfob must be present. No mechanical key to start the car.
I also tried to lock and unlock the doors with it and nothing. I tried to open the trunk with it and nothing. I tried the second key fob and again, nothing which leads me to believe it's the car, and not the fob. The battery is fully charged on the car. HELP.
Your drop down list does not have 2006, but it is a 2006, not the year below.
It looks like you have the "Smart Key" (a small rectangular box) that does not look like a traditional key.
What you also have is a dead battery inside the Smart Key.
Look closely at the box; there is a little button on the side. Press it. This will release a small hidden key. After you remove the small key, use a small flat blade screwdriver to pry the case of the box open at the slot provided. Take the unit to a store that sells miniature batteries, and have it replaced. You will NOT have to reprogram it after the battery is changed. The life span of the miniature batteries is roughly 20 months, less if exposed to RFI, like sitting on a TV, a monitor, or other electrical device. The Smart key TRANSMITS all of the time, even when you do not press the buttons. This is why the battery only lasts 18-20 months. Let me know if this fixes your issue..
