Well the easier way is more expensive, have a locksmith come out a do what they call a pick out key, they use a tool that will tell them the key cuts for each tumbler in the door or ignition. If I remember Toyota, they use the same key for both door and ignition. Although taking a door panel off one of these is not too hard but I don't think you will find a key code in there, but you can remove the key cylinder and take it to a locksmith and have a key made for it that way.

there is a code on the passenger side door lock but you have to remove it from the car. i had to have it done and it wasnt that bad. then i found my key a couple days later.
