Adding keys to a Daihatsu / Toyota Immobiliser

The Copen uses the same immobiliser as the YRV, as well as a few Toyotas. This isn’t overly surprising, seeing as Toyota own most of Daihatsu. These instructions will only work if you have a Texas C type chip – that is, a static transponder code – from what I can tell, or test for […]
