Your vehicle is supplied with two kinds of keys.

1. Master keys (black) — These keys work in every lock. Your Toyota dealer will need one of them to make a new key with a built-in transponder chip.

2. Sub key (gray) — This key also works in every lock.

A transponder chip for engine immobilizer system has been placed in the head of the master and sub keys. These chips are needed to enable the system to function correctly, so be careful not to lose these keys. If you make your own duplicate key, you will not be able to cancel the system or start the engine.

Since the side doors and back door can be locked without a key, you should always carry a spare key in case you accidentally lock your keys inside the vehicle.

NOTICE.

When using a key containing a transponder chip, observe the following precautions: When starting the engine, do not use the key with a key ring resting on the key grip and do not press the key ring against the key grip.
