The anti theft system has been triggered on the vehicle, it will have to be flashed by Toyota in order to reinitialize the anti theft system, Next time tell your mechanic to provide voltage to the computer thru the cigarette lighter or power port prior to replacing the battery, this will keep the computer energized and avoid reflash from having to performed. Please RATE my service a 3 or above, if for some reason you can not ,please ASK me another question, I will continue to answer your questions even after rating is given until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
