I have 2007 toyota camry hybrid bought from a auction with no keys. Locksmith came to make and program a key but claim 12v battery was to low charged so I boosted battery for a hour with Booster pack

Asked by Apr 28, 2017 at 06:47 PM about the 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Allegedly programming key VSC displayed on dash and car wouldn't crank at all,
not sure if key was recognized because dashboard went black with all
accessory power. I took to get 12v battery charged, they said it is a good battery
13.2v. I put 12v battery back in car still no accessories, but have horn, interior
lights, brake light & parking lights which was condition before having key
programmed

I believe this is another example of the many computers on this vehicle not communicating with one another. You might start checking fuses for opens first. These hybrids really need a factory...toyota....scan tool for proper diagnosis. Complicating this issue is we really don't know if we have a good...proper...key which will function properly. If this vehicle has over 100,000 miles....you can expect hv battery problems. Check the Owners Manual for fuse locations and consider a call to a toyota dealer asking what it would cost to cut and program a key for this vehicle. Get back to us with your thoughts.
