Toyota Key Replacement
Getting Locked Out of Your Car
It always starts out simple enough. You are driving to the store in your Toyota Camry. You leave your car, then you go in the store.
The problem comes when you get back in your car. That is when you realize that your car key has stopped working, and you run into trouble. You try everything. You press the unlock button several times. You try to open the trunk first. You try to bring the key closer to the receiver of the signal in case there might just be some interference. You even try some weird trick you learned on TV that involved holding your fob key closer to your chin, but nothing seems to work.
You could have sworn it was working when you got in your car this morning. Simply looking at the remote does not seem to reveal any problems as it looks intact, as if it were perfectly functional. You also know that the batteries were replaced just last month. Overall, you know that with your limited knowledge as a car dealer, you cannot easily diagnose the problem. Perhaps you need an expert to either fix your key or, if the need arises, replace your key.
