Hmmm... my local Ace told me $80, wonder what the difference is?

Our helpful member 619Rav4 has found a great deal on the flip key. This Ebay vendor is selling them for $11 with free shipping, AND he is located in California so the shipping is fast! The vendor's Ebay ID is rachael_autoparts:

James,
What other functions can this program do?

I also have a Toyota Tacoma 2007. Would this program also work on the Tacoma?

Lots of cool things--including customizing features. Yes, it will work fine with your Taco. Read here:

can the immobilizer be placed on the other (non key end)? I accidently stuck on the sticker that covers the screws to the key end.

Uh...no, the immobilizer chip needs to be as close to the ignition switch as possible. The antenna in the key switch has a very limited range. Carefully peel the sticker off and put the chip where it belongs.

thanks.

got it programmed and setup. Went to home depot to cut the key but the guy screwed it up. If I insert the key on one side, it works. but if I put it in from the other side, it doesn't. I got the key stuck in ignition. But was able to pull it out after a few minutes of jiggling it around (all the meanwhile I was thinking in my head how much it would take to fix this).

Go to a locksmith, he will file it down nicely on both sides using a manual tool.

Yeah, when it's something as important as MY CAR, I prefer to get the key made by a real locksmith who knows what he's doing, not some Home Depot flunkie, even if it costs me an extra buck.

well I did it out of convenience more than anything. Now I'm looking for a spare keyblade.

btw, has anyone ever taken apart the blade piece? does it have the number 02 on it?


also thinking about playing with this one
