The truck thinks you are trying to steal it. Are you using a new key, or the valet key?

AU Auto Mechanic: Canuck Tech, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

Is it a fast flash, or slow flash?

Ask Your Own Australia Car Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
standard slow flash
AU Auto Mechanic: Canuck Tech, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

OK - so the slow flash is one flash every 2 seconds - when you insert the key, does the light stay on for 2 seconds?

and then go out?

AU Auto Mechanic: Canuck Tech, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

Because if it continues to flash, the immobilizer is active. Yes, it could be the reader. I don't think you will be able to get too far on this with the Toyota scan tool

*without the toyota scan tool

Throwing parts at it without a clear diagnostic picture is usually ineffective, and expensive... just sayin'
