is the original remote when got car engine light not on
Toyota Mechanic: Fixitman, Master Technician replied 7 months ago
Thank you. If there are any warning lights on then that will keep it from working. I usually scan the computer for codes first to see if anything comes up. If not then the circuit needs to be tested. It may be a programming issue in the control module or possibly a relay issue. Did you plan on Trying to fix this yourself?

Toyota Mechanic: Fixitman, Master Technician replied 7 months ago
No. The key itself is not the issue. It is in the receiver computer in the vehicle.
