I am trying to buy a 2000 Toyota Tundra (V8 Limited) from a guy. He lost the keys so I had a guy come out and make one. The key seems to work fine except the car turns over but wont fire. The mechanic thought there was a problem with the fuel pump, but before he replaced it he did some research and says there is a immobilizer on the truck and its this that is making the truck not fire. It has to do with the security of the truck. Now the owner swears he had a key cut from a regular place (home depot-ish) and it worked. The owner is now telling me to use the FOB on it and it should work.

I have the FOB. I have to wait till Monday to try it.

Think it might work?

The newer trucks have to go to the dealership to be programmed. My key did the same thing before it was programmed, it may be easier for the older model.
