Wow crazy just for locks but that's the dealers for you .

Here is what i suggest you do ,this is how we make money on situations
like yours, where the owner of a car would rather dump it than spent £1300 .

Get in contact with your local locksmith .He will come round and make you a new key and then program it for you ,there is no need to replace all the locks ,now you can sell or keep the car and not lose all that money .do this as i said and this will save you a bucket full of cash .

Here is the locksmith locator for you.

Hi Greg.


 


Toyota have said they can supply a master key for £35 that will open the door but not start the engine. They thought it wouldn't set the alarm off but were not 100% on that. The engine start is push button plus a proximity fob which they can't supply. That's why they said all locks need replacing.


 


The auto locksmith was very helpful although he's not sure what he can do. He's looking into it for me.


 


With this further information is there anything else you can think off?
