Ho, just like that? Reuben, if it were easy or a clever way to disarm or bypass the **** thing, not only would thieves make it useless, but everybody would have created a website for it by now ! Last time I checked-nada. It is pretty complicated, far reaching (and very expensive to service), and just almost can't be done in the field-as far as bypassing it, at any rate.
Well that's just my opinion, anyway, but there should be a way to reset it. Are the engines identical? The Prado is not sold under that name in the US, is it a Corolla? If you typed into a search engine like Bing, either Prado or Toyota (or it's equivalent US counterpart), and "disarm or deactivate immobilizer" ...something like that, and see if you get good results. If you get it running, let me (us) know how it's done, good luck.

SOURCE: engine immobiliser activated due to alarm going off.

Our problem was very simpy solved in the end. With all doors shut we were told to lock and unlock the car with the remote about 7 times. This re-set the immobiliser and the car started!

Toyota prado idling speed


Yes, it can be completely normal, engine idling RPM's will have various factors that affect them such as temperature, altitude, oil level. In all cars the RPM's will change when the compressor for the AC is activated.

Need schematic wiring diagram for 2002 Toyota Caldina


This is an (almost) impossible task. The immobiliser ECU which reads the key communicates with, and is controlled by, the engine ECU.
It's not possible to just "bypass" the system.
I said "almost" impossible because with the right tools, knowledge and unlimited time it may be possible to capture the code of a useable system, then design and build a black box to respond correctly to the engine ECU, which would allow engine operation.
If you have lost your only usable key, you need to order a new one (as you haven't indicated your exact model, I can't give you the correct part number - keys are different depending on model/engine).
You will also need a dealer who can programme a new key to your existing vehicle.
If your existing vehicle has problems with the immobiliser, you may be able to find a Toyota dealer to interrogate your OBD to see what the issue is. If not, replace the key transponder unit, then the ECU.
I've assumed you know it's an immobiliser issue, and that you've done the usual wiring and fuse checks etc.
