smart key not functioning on 2005 Prius
My 2005 Prius was in a bodyshop for 6 weeks. Just got it back and smartkey not working - unable to start ignition or lock/unlock doors.
Dealer wanted $40 - 80 to investigate, so I just spent $6 for new battery for key fob. That did not solve the problem. I have to physically put key in slot to start ignition.
anyone know of a solution?
Most likely to keep from running the battery down (smartkey causes small 12v drain) the bodyshop turned it off with the switch located on the panel under the steering wheel marked 'smartkey, press the button one time.
there is a KEY button below the steering wheel, under the dashboard. try that first. i hit mine accidentally and that was the only reason it wasn't working!!!!
