But the dealership has a bad Key code in database.

I was told the keycode is written on the passenger side door cylinder.

How do I get about getting to it ?

They should just need your vin number. That can be found on the dash by looking through the windshield. Its also on the door or doorwell (haven't opened the car in awhile, not sure which).

Toyota usually purges their system after ten years, so I doubt his key code is going to be in there.

Sorry I can't help ya further, just wanted to clarify :)

Finally had to unhook the door and look on the lock cylinder. Its a 5 digit number. For all you supra owners with future key code probs.

Juss take the lock out and take it to a locksmith. My cousin recently had to do this for his 90 cressida. IIRC, it ran him less then $50. Might be different.

Or you can get the key code and have Toyota make a perfect key for less than $5.00.

I just had one cut today in fact, but I had it done on an original key (ordered it from the warehouse, it's the original master key). I also have the original paperwork for the car, which says the key code on it as well.


A lot of our cars are too old to go by the VIN, I know some people with 91-92's have still had luck though.

Toyota stamps the key code on all passenger side cylinder locks, dissasembly of the door panel is necessary.
That way you can be 100% sure of your key code.

gladiator2043 is that where you looked?

Not to easy to get at but like Jeff said you can get a key made for about $5.00.

I have had a dealer make me the wrong key twice, with the correct key code before.

good luck

I think people need to stop saying "just give Toyota your VIN" because guess what? It doesnt do shit! Like everyone else, you need to take out the passenger door lock cylinder. I'll have to do it as well!

In my area, the locksmith actually came out to the house, and made me the key

Someone may have had to replace the lock cylinder, and wanted it to be redone to match the key for the rest of the locks, hence the key code would not match. About all I can think of.
