I recently purchased a second hand Toyota Passo 2007. It is equipped with a Keyless entry and Keyless Ignition System. The only key that i got is the Fob which has a slit where the small mechanical key goes inside a sleeve.
The problem is this that I can open the Driver Side Door when every the Smart Key is in my pocket by pressing on the small button on the Driver Side Handle but once I get inside the Vehicle i cannot start the Car as the ignition would not turnl
My solution is to remove the mechanical key from the Smart Transponder Sleeve, insert it in the ignition, touch the base of the Transponder close to the ignition area and then turn the ignition at which point the car would start.
Now this process is a total painful and long one. I have tried replacing the batteris of the Smart Key but to no avail.
I am confused that if the Car is recognizing the transponder to unlock the doors, why is it not recognizing it when inside to let the vehicle start without the small mechanical key.
Please help and advise. Also if you think that my Key is to blame then let me know where i can have a duplicate one made and what cost? Or do you think that the ECU RFID antenna inside the car is to blame as it doesnt detect the Transponder inside the Car.
many thanks for your help.
