Keys with smart key system

Key Number Plate Toyota


Your key number is shown on the plate. Keep the plate in a safe place such as your wallet, not in the vehicle.

If you should lose your keys or if you need additional keys, duplicates can be made by a Toyota dealer using the key number.

We recommend writing down the key number and storing it in a safe place.

The key consists of an electronic key and a mechanical key. The mechanical key is for emergency use. If the electronic key does not operate, you can open the driver's door using the mechanical key.

1. Electronic keys—These keys can lock or unlock all the doors and can open the trunk by using the wireless remote control function or entry function of the smart key system.

2. Mechanical keys—These keys can lock or unlock the driver's door, the glove box and the door located behind the rear seat armrest.

Spare keys should not be left in the cabin. In the event that a spare key is left in the cabin, the smart key system will remain actuated even after the doors have been locked. Under these circumstances, the trunk can be opened even after the driver has exited and locked the vehicle, increasing the danger of theft. (Refer to "OPENING TRUNK WITH SMART KEY SYSTEM" on page 46 in this Section.)

To protect items locked in the trunk or the glove box when using valet parking, leave the electronic key with the attendant. Keep the mechanical key with you. For details about locking the trunk opener switch, see "—Luggage security system" on page 47 in this Section.

A transponder chip for engine immobilizer system has been placed in the electronic keys. These chips are needed to enable the system to function correctly, so be careful not to lose these keys.


• People with implanted pacemakers or cardiac defibrillators should keep away from the smart key system antennas, because the radio waves may affect the operation of such devices. For the antenna locations see "ANTENNA LOCATION" on page 32 in this Section.

• Users of any electrical medical device other than implanted pacemakers and implanted cardiac defibrilla-tors should consult the manufacturer of the device for information about its operation under the influence of radio waves. Radio waves could have unexpected effects on the operation of such medical devices.

• If necessary, the entry function can be disabled. See "DISABLING THE SMART KEY SYSTEM" on page 36 in this Section.


When using a electronic key containing a transponder chip, observe the following precautions:

♦ Do not affix any material that cuts off electromagnetic waves (such as a metal seal) on the electronic key.

♦ Do not knock the electronic key hard against other objects.

♦ Do not leave the electronic key exposed to high temperatures for a long period, such as on the dashboard or hood under direct sunlight.

♦ Do not put the electronic key in water or wash it in an ultrasonic washer.

♦ Do not keep the electronic key together with the products emitting electromagnetic waves such as a cellular phone.
