Hi camokaraoke! You need to contact your local Toyota dealer. he will seek your VIN# and then outline the steps for resetting your anti-theft system. Getting rid of that option is a bit more complicated but he can give you those options as well. Good luck!

You can dissconnect your brain (under driverside kick panel there will be three) then disconnect your battery. Wait 12-24 hours and reconnect your brain first then battery and it will start.
