Ignition Key replacement 2006 Corolla

Recommended Posts

Hi, the ignition key to our 2006 Corolla lost its internal circuit block after the case with the buttons fell apart.  We've been unable to find the part that fell out.  We have a second key which is still working.  Is there a smarter/cheaper way to get a second key back as I'm being told Toyota want $230 for the key blank, pay extra to locksmith to cut the key, then pay $70 to Toyota service to program the key.  It all seems like a really bad joke considering this only happened due to faulty Toyota key design causing it to break.  If I don't get a second key back and the sole working key is lost apparently its fatal for the car.   Anyone been through this before, particularly in Melbourne?
