    Hello Everyone! Merry Christmas! My first post so please forgive anything I do incorrectly and thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I bought my wife a 2005 4Runner Limited 4WD White. While test driving the car, I always entered it by using the fob to unlock the door. Days later (once the car was mine) I tried unlocking the door with the key. No go. I rolled down the back windows with the fob and tried to roll up the window with the key. No go. They won’t even turn at all. I’m assuming something probably went wrong with ignition on this 4Runner at some point and they swapped it out which I imagine was costly. The question is, what should I do, get a second key cut that will open the door and roll up the window? Think I can get someone to adjust those locks to match the working ignition key? I really don’t want two keys if I can avoid it. Suggestions? Thank you!

    Go back to where you bought the runner and explain the situation and have them correct it or have them give you the $ to go correct it yourself . It probably going to be close $500. Good luck.

    sounds like it might be a valet key..?
