Car has been working fine, starting first time, runs nsmoothly.
This morning, engine turns over, plenty in battery, petrol the lot but just won't start. Not even try to fire. I am guessing the immobiliser. Tried two keys both do the same. Is there anyway to check.

Sounds like you need to go into a Toyota dealer. There are chips within the keys that are recognised by a transponder around the ignition barrel. I worked with toyota about 6 years ago and if I remember corectly you can plug onto hand held computer and re-program the keys. Best bet to phone local dealer. Ian
