We lost our ignition key and remote. How on earth can we get another?


Oh dear Helen.


Was it your only key ?


Getting another one is probably quite easy.

Getting it cut, to match your ignition lock, perhaps not as, I assume, you have no spare.


If you do have a spare, panic not.


Is the vehicle at home, or are you stranded ?


Either way, an auto locksmith may initially be your best course of action.


I can think of at least two expert members, and probably many more, who, I hope will respond to your crisis asap.


But it may take a day or two for them to read your thread and respond.



Another course of action maybe to contact your local converter for their help if possible.

I'll send you a Personal Message with their details

Hi Helen, I had a new key (Central locking & engine immobiliser) made a couple of weeks ago by Martyn https://www.autolockmaster.co.uk/toyota-alphard/, in my case he was able to copy the one I still had. He seemed incredibly resourceful & knowledgeable and told me he could if necessary have started from scratch, however it would have been a much bigger job. Though he may be based in Worcester, I met him in Gloucester & he advertises a nationwide service. Best of luck, Chris
