I lost my Toyota 86 keys, have no spare, and need a replacement. How and where can I get a replacement key?

Toyota 86 Car Keys Replacement

Toyota 86 Car Keys Replacement

Generally speaking, you have three options:

  1. First, call an automotive locksmith that offers a mobile service for Toyota 86 cars. We can help you with this option.
  2. Second, have your car towed to an official dealer.
  3. Third, order a key online and have the dealer or locksmith cut and program it (if necessary) for you.

A word of caution: The type of key you need will depend on the year and model of your  Toyota 86. Therefore, the options on how to get a new key made and programmed depend on whether you need a remote, an intelligent FOB, push to start button, a transponder or a regular key.

What should I tell the locksmith or dealer when I call for service?

First, make sure you have the exact year, make and model, e.g. 2018  Toyota 86.

In addition, write down the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) of the car, which you will find on the left side of the dashboard near the mirror (Click here for more information). This will help the locksmith or dealer verify the year, make and model of the car and the type of key you had and need to replace.

Moreover, it’s important to ask if you can come and pick up the key or if the car has to be present. With older models, codes may not be available and so on-site service is required to make a new key.

If you need to have the car towed to the locksmith’s shop or the dealer it will make the replacement more expensive.

Finally, make sure you can show ownership of the car by having the necessary documents. Its title certificate, your ID, and proof of insurance, etc.

Q: Toyota 86 key replacement cost – How much does it cost to replace a Toyota 86 key if I don’t have the original? What is the average price?

Price of cutting a new Toyota 86 key may vary

Price of cutting a new Toyota 86 key may vary

A: Replacing a Toyota 86 key can cost anywhere between $90-$420. The actual price depends on a number of factors:

  1. The type of key need
  2. The car’s year of manufacture
  3. The time of day (or night!) & your location
  4. Where you get a key replacement (dealer, automotive locksmith, online, etc.)
  5. Availability of code to cut a new key
  6. Original ignition or not

The type of key you had and the year the car was manufactured are maybe the most important factors as they determine whether you need a chip, intelligent fob, “push to start”, remote, regular “non-transponder” key. The newer the car, the better the key’s security features and you can expect to pay more than $250 for a replacement key. For more accurate pricing information Click here to see the type of key you need for your car model.

The price also depends on where you buy your replacement key. From the dealer, an automotive locksmith online. Click here to get a more detailed explanation.

Dealers may charge about 10%-15% less than a locksmith for a replacement key. However, most dealers will want you to tow your car to their premises to program the new key or remote, which makes the total price a lot higher.

In addition, if you call on a locksmith to come out and make you a new key outside regular business hours, the price is likely to be higher, so do ask in advance.

Finally, if your ignition cylinder was changed in the past (typically with older cars), this probably means that the code for the key may no longer be valid. If this is the case, the new key will have to be cut manually by a locksmith or you may have to change the ignition again. In this scenario, the dealer can’t be of help.

Q: Can I get a Toyota 86 key replacement by VIN?

A: That depends on the year of your model and the type of key you had.

The VIN allows the dealer or automotive locksmith access to the key code on file, i.e. they can cut you a replacement key by code which makes the process very fast and easy. You must, however, consider two things:

  1. For Toyota models that are older than 10 years: There are no codes available. Therefore, an automotive locksmith is your only option to get a replacement key.
  2. For Toyota 86 vehicles that are equipped with a transponder system and/or remote/ intelligent key/ fob key: Codes are available. However, programming is necessary and therefore you will have to either tow the car to the dealer or have an automotive locksmith come and program the key on site.

Toyota 86 key programming – which keys you can program yourself, which keys require programming tools & more

The Toyota has different types of keys. Some require programming and some do not. All transponder chip keys and/or smart key fobs need to be programmed with a special programming machine that only an automotive locksmith or the dealer has. There is no need to program non-transponder metal keys.

To keep things simple, we divide all Toyota keys into two categories:

  1. No programming needed (Non-transponder keys)
  2. Keys that needs to be programmed, which means you will need an automotive locksmith or the dealer (transponder or remote keys)


No Programming needed:

Toyota 86 Non-transponder keys are metal keys that have no chip in them and therefore no programming is needed:

None – Toyota 86 has only keys that need special equipment to be programmed.


Toyota 86 Keys that needs to be programmed and you will need an automotive locksmith or the dealer:

Toyota 86 Car Key Programming Tool

Toyota 86 Car Key Programming Tool

These keys, also known as remote smart keys, intelligent keys or key fobs, as well as transponder keys, have a security chip in them and programming is needed. In addition, a special machine is needed to program them and therefore an automotive locksmith or dealer should do it for you. (Usually for models made after 2008)



Keyless entry information for the Toyota 86:

2017-2019: There is a built-in keyless entry in the remote key.
