How toprogramm car key toyota matrix

  • 1 First you will need to purchase a blank Toyota transponder key. You can do this from the dealership, a locksmith, or an online source such as eBay. Once you have the key, take the blank key and the master key to a locksmith that he or she can duplicate the key. This will be much cheaper than the dealership.
  • 2 Now that you have the newly cut key and the master key, you can program the Toyota transponder key. Sit in the driver's side of the Toyota vehicle. Press and release the brake and gas pedal simultaneously.
  • 3 Insert the master transponder key. Do not turn it. Push and release the gas pedal 5 times within at least 15 seconds of inserting the master key.
  • 4 Press and release the brake pedal 6 times within 20 seconds of completing step 3, then remove the master transponder key.
  • 5 Insert the newly cut transponder key into the ignition, but do not turn. Press the gas pedal once.
  • 6 Wait up to 2 minutes or whenever the security light on the dashboard turns off. Once the light goes off, remove the new transponder key and press the brake pedal once. The new transponder key should now be programmed. Test the key by attempting to start the engine. If the engine does not start, repeat the steps above.

    Cant turn key in ignition f 2005 Toyota matrix caris in park steering is unlocked

    Tim is right about key wearing out. Even the tumblers inside the cylinder can wear out. Cutting a new key will work only if the thickness wear has taken place. But if the profile/notches are worn out then only solution is to change the key lock and cylinder as a set.
    If key has a chip in it best would be to go to the Dealer or any Tech
    who will provide you with a Chip key and can program it for you.

    Toyota Matrix 2005 CD stuck

    More than likely, you have 2 cds stuck in one slot. What you have to do is remove the radio form the dash, and then remove the top metal panel on the radio. Plug the radio back in, and press eject. You may have to "help" one or two of the cds out of the player.
