    I bought a used 2017 Tundra and just received two keys (with chips). I didn't notice until today that the keys will only go about half way into the glove box lock. I opened the glove box and looked at the depth of the lock. Apparently the key used on it is about 3/4" long, as the lock mechanism is too short for the ignition key. The keys work fine on the tailgate. Now I am wondering what all I am missing. I suspect that there should be a key fob, too, because it is a SR5 TRD trim level, and the specs show that remote entry was standard. Please enlighten me.

    The key in the glove box is correct. It is not supposed to go in any more than that. I believe that you can order a key fob from Amazon and have it programmed at a locksmith or by someone that has TechStream software.....or see if the dealer will throw one in on the deal.

    Thank you for that information. Am I correct in my assumption that all of these trucks also came with a remote entry fob?

    Unless you got a SR "work truck" package you should have two fobs.

    I bought this from a dealer in Lubbock. I asked about fobs prior to buying and they were really evasive. Wouldn't even tell me if it was equipped to use remote entry. I did get a screaming good deal on it and am pleased as can be. I guess that I'm going to give up a few of those dollars saved to get it up to spec.
