SOURCE: Transponder Key Programming

Keys are not all the same, it is possible the key you bought may not work, it should be searched by VIN by the dealer, and the dealer has to program with factory scan tool, should cost no more than .5 hours in labor.

SOURCE: 2008 Toyota Tacoma Excessive brake pedal

Your dealer is not lying to you.
All of the Toyota product line with ABS has this phenomenon. What Toyota has done is incorporate "Brake Force Distribution" into the braking system. What that means is there is now a sensor on the brake pedal/brake rod, going to the master cylinder. The sensor measures how FAST you press on the brake pedal. This activates the ABS pump, and supplies more brake fluid, harder, to reduce the time needed, such as a "panic stop"; the pedal travel is much longer than you are used to, because of the way they have to measure the speed of the rod being depressed. In actuality, this system is much better than the old system, as it also prevents wheel drag. It just takes a while to get used to. Really, there is nothing to worry about, I explain this same thing to my customers every week.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Try disconnect battery for 30 minutes. Sounds like new key not synced with computer. Might need reprogram.

It's impossible to start the engine without the transponder chip inside the key.. Only way is to buy a new same type key n virginize ur ECU n reprogram ur ECU to recognize the new key unless u still keep the original master key to activate the add key for slave key.. Look for lock smith will do the job.
