■If you lose your keys New genuine key can be made by your Toyota dealer using the other key and the key number stamped on your key number plate.

Keep the plate in a safe place such as your wallet, not in the vehicle.

■Panic mode (vehicles with wireless remote control) When is pressed for longer than about 1 second, an alarm will sound intermittently and the vehicle lights will flash to deter any person from trying to break into or damage your vehicle.
