Yep, I've seen this and other YT videos. But note he uses a genuine Toyota key blank

That's where the crux of the matter lies as the genuine ones are expensive and according to the dealer one has to prove ownership of the car before TKM/dealer will provide you with one. Given the way dishonesty is widespread here I can't blame TKM for taking precautions to ascertain identity. Kind of similar to proving ones identity for a replacement mobile SIM card.

Hope this programming procedure works with Toyota's Indian models too.

I wish I had read this earlier. My original Corolla key is not being used from 2013 because of key breakage. Am using the spare key since then with no remote door open/close. This is a 11 year old car and still going strong. Did not buy a new key because Toyota quoted 10K approx in 2013-14.

You could go with the blanks available online + transponder chip from the damaged key. Should not cost over 1k for the blank + cutting.

UPDATE

So the car hasnít been driven much since the last update. The front two shock absorbers were replaced as the front left shocker which took a major hit during the pothole incident on the mpew had developed a leak. Got the gas filled Monroe struts. The car is now running on 5w40 shell synthetic engine oil. Oil Filter was the one I got from Bahrain. Finally reached the 90k milestone. So that is approximately 44k kms in 2 years and 5 months. As I am traveling to Bahrain in April, The car wonít be driven much. Hoping to cross the 100k kms mark soon.
