Default Lost master key for 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser?

All I have is the Valet key. Is there a way to have new master keys made without purchasing a new computer from the dealership at a cost of $1900? Can the ECM be reset?

The source list contains a link to the Hillman 2000 Transponder Application Guide, which lists your 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser. There is a section for on board programming for originating new master keys. However, in the case of Toyota for the year 2000 it states that if there is no key available which is already programmed into the module, the module must be replaced.

Take it to your local Toyota dealer and they can cut you a key without anything except for the VIN. Unless Toyota is retarded and is nothing like any other car manufacturer.

The 2000 Landcrusher is not a "supported" by the SID program. That means it requires a replacement ecu for the master key. However Toyota often participates with the repair. You may want to ask your dealer about bulletin G103-09. Toyota will provide the ECU at no charge, but you have to pay for the install and keys. Still takes a good chunk of the bill away.

Being that it is a 2000 the ecu can not be reset. The computer will have to be replaced. You can call Toyota or your local dealer can, and Toyota will send a ecu to the dealership @ NO CHARGE. Now for the bad news. You will have to pay for installation, 2 keys, and programming. Should run you around $200- $300 at most. Your best bet is to get 3 keys all programmed as MASTER KEYS and put one in the safe, that way if the others are lost, you will still have a MASTER KEY and not have to pay as much next time.

if you have the original owners manual the key number will be on the iside of the fron cover. take this number to a reputable locksmith or a toyota dealer,they will be able to supply you with a replacement key going by your numbers. If you dont have original manual,remove one of your door locks ,take it to a locksmith the will cut key.
