Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
I can not start my prado due to the immobiliser remaining active since replacing the engine
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.

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!

well on some chevys with the vats system the key had a resister in it ...there were 12 diffrent resistences per model year ..i once ..on a 93 vette..figured the resisence needed and took a trip to radio shack and got the resisters needed and connected them together to aceve the needed resistane than located the two refrence wires going to the ecu and connected the wires ..via the resister i made and was able to run the car..if the toy uses a resistance type connection do some home work build the resistor and connect it than have a lock smith make a key that will turn the tumblers ...locksmith will run about 85-115 bucks
