Hello Everyone, I've had my 2013 Rav4 for about 3 years now and they gave me only one set of keys, But see I want a duplicate key just to give a couple of people in case I lose mine. Above is what my keyfob looks like, I was wondering could I go to a key place and they make a copy of that key and I can give that to people?

We have a 2017 Rav4 which uses a key like yours (pictured) - FYI if you want to save a couple of bucks you can get a key without the buttons that will still open your doors and start your car. That's what I did, I don't remember the details but a locksmith did cut and program it. You really have a couple of options - you can buy the blank uncut (with or without buttons) key from ebay (just be careful) - programming instructions are on the internet - but you will still need to have it cut by a locksmith or you can go directly to a local locksmith who will sell you the blank key, cut, and then program it.

OR - Batteries Plus Bulbs (if you have local stores) can make it for you. We bought a 2018 Rav4 with push button start and Batteries Plus Bulbs was able to furnish and program a new fob, including cutting the emergency key, for us. You might check them out.

Best of luck

Bill

Just a little background of what is inside the key.Toyota could have changed things but on my 2006 Scion, there was a RFID or something like it chip inside the key. This chip looked like a grain of rice. If this chip was not there the car would not start.

Do it yourself and save a lot of money.. Here's a good thread but if you search here you will find many more. If you have any questions just ask.

You can buy the keys on eBay.

Does your key have a Dot or a G stamped on the blade?
