Had a similar problem with my Rav4 ... was completely stumped, but then tried the spare key and walla, it started. The battery that powers the transponder in the key had gone flat, fitted a new battery and that one worked as well.

It could be that your problem has a simple solution like that, so that's what I would try first.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!
