Well when I bought my truck the original owner lost all the fobs/masters and only had a valet:mad:. Now I went to the "stealership" and they are claiming that I have to get a brand new computer. Is this true? Would love some advice on this.
Thanks.

btw I have a 2007 Tundra D. Cab if that helps.

I am fairly certain that is indeed the case, in order to program the imobilizer for additional keys you have to have a master key in the ignition, therefore, if you have no master key then the imobilizer needs to be replaced.

The dealership can re-program your existing computer for new master keys. Had to have this done last year (don't ask me why:mad:) They also cut new masters with the key code which I still had. Not sure if they can access the code with the VIN but I would think they could. I think I paid $130 for the reprogramming and three master keys.

I think you need the key code provided with the master keys.

I went to Don McGill Toyota yesterday and that's what they told me. $100 for reprogramming the system and cutting one key.
