I received my 95 LC with keys that were badly worn and looked like a tooth pick. They only opened the front door to unlock and start the ignition(will it open hatch, passenger or glove box). I thought it was due to them being worn so got new keys cut by code/vin by a local lock smith and they still only work to unlock and start the ignition.

After looking up info on keys it seems there are masters and valet keys.

The key I received was a generic blank TR-44. Is there a different blank it should be cut on? Also does anyone have a photo of both master and valet side by side? Thanks.

Give ToyotaMatt a shout. He can get you solid copies and even has a good looking reproduction original key.

that should be the blank for both keys, the difference is in the cut. if the keys are that worn out he cylinders may be getting worn out as well so getting a new key cut off the vin may or may not help much
