RAV4 2007 wont start after removing battery for three days


Asked by May 26, 2015 at 12:55 PM about the 2007 Toyota RAV4 Sport AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi. I removed the battery of my RAV4 2007, and when reconnected Car wont start at all.
It cranks, there is fuel pressure on the line, and the coils voltage levels are ok. The key is
standard. There is no inmobilizer installeda at all. It seems that some kind of locking
happened and cause there is no ignition. Any ideas?

Are you in the US? You have no chip key and no immobilizer? Every Rav4 sold in North America for 2007 and before and since has a chip key. If you don't somebody by-passed it and changed the whole thing. Do you not have a red LED that flashes when key is removed?

Your key may be deprogrammed! Look on line for sequence to reprogram your key!

That's the thing Papa. He says it's a non-chip key. I don't get it, normally your answer would be the same as I would have said


Thanks everybody. Yes this is a RAV7 sold in the USA. Already checked and does not have factory inmobilizer installed. Just disconnected the battery and after reconnecting doesnt start¬°¬°. The key is a standard key with the wireless controller including the lock, unlock and panic alarm buttons. Thanks for any ideas
