Default 7th gen replacement keys

Am looking into buying backup/replacement keys for my '00 celica gt.

Would anyone happen to know if these would be the correct blanks?

I would go to the dealership to make sure its the right ones or maybe they can steer you towards a good place to get keys. I know on some older cars you can just go to any place that makes keys. I'm not sure how it is for the newer cars.

If your current key is just a metal pice like the one in the link photo you can go anyplace and they probably have it. If it has some more tech in it then no...in my 99 accord you need to get the key programed in order to start it. The key will open and stuff but engine wont start.

I would recommend looking through your owners manual and a toyota dealer ship is an awesome place to know what you need. Im pretty sure that you can just get it done at any key place...

My current key is just a metal key, although I also have an extra rubber top metal key also. Neither is a 'chipped' key. I have been around the local shops for a replacement key including the Toyota dealership. So far no one has a key in their inventory for my car.
The Toyota dealership here is a joke, they only handle cars under warranty..everything else they refer people to local car auto shops.
So hence why I made this post about a bag of keys that appear to be tr47 x217 for Toyota, I figured since I am a new celica owner maybe peoples in this forum would be a bit more knowledgeable than myself on them.

I agree with garrsisonboobs. No matter what blank you get, got to dealer to have them cut. Dont go anyway else except dealer to have these keys cut. The blanks dont matter, I have several "custom type" keys but they have to be cut at the dealer.

I agree with you but dealer will charge you much cost for the keys. Why shouldn't you try a locksmith who is specific in repair and replacing the car door locks , keys.They charge normal fee to cut and program the car key.

My wife just had a new key made at Walmart for her 2000 Celica GT for $1.88 . It works perfect, opens the doors and starts the car ..

You can buy a replacement fob on eBay & program it yourself, but your key is security chipped, so it has to be programed into your vehicle by the Crystallake Locksmith. This will be affordable.

I've had several keys made at WalMart for a 2001 Celica GTS. They unlock the doors as well as start the car.

Mine is an '03 GT and I just went a got a key cut at Home Hardware for a few bucks. I originally took it to the Toyota dealership and the parts guy told me it wasn't a chipped key. He said that if it has a hard plastic case and the plastic won't give under the thumbnail at all it is not chipped.
