Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Did the vehicle overheat to the point where it quit running? When you insert a key into the ignition lock cylinder does the red security like continue to fish or does it go out? Are there any codes set in the engine control computer?
The immobilizer system in this car cannot be overridden. If the security light is flashing when the key is inserted into the ignition lock cylinder this means the key is not recognized. Do you have any other keys to try? The immobilizer should not be disabled or not recognizing the key just because it overheated. Does the light flashany particular pattern? For example two flashes a slight pause that one flash?
