The engine immobilizer system is a theft prevention system. When you insert the key in the ignition switch, the transponder chip in the key's head transmits an electronic code to the vehicle. The engine will start only when the electronic code in the chip corresponds to the registered ID code for the vehicle.
The system is automatically set when the key is removed from the ignition switch. The indicator light will start flashing to show the system is set.
In the following cases, contact your Toyota dealer.
• The indicator light stays on.
• The indicator light does not start flashing when the key is removed from the ignition switch.
• The indicator light flashes inconsistently.
Inserting the registered key in the ignition switch automatically cancels the system, which enables the engine to start. The indicator light will go off.
