I also had one of the dummy keys previously mentioned cut for it to use while towing, but I had to go to 5 different stores to find one that would cut a non-chip copy of a chip key. I have tried starting it with the dummy key, and it won't start and hasn't caused any computer problems with the engine computer.



I had my dummy key made at a local hardware store and no one even asked why I would want a key that couldn't start my car. laugh.gif

FWIW I'm pretty confident that this stuff about a dummy key messing up your engine computer is nothing but internet "urban legend". Your car is designed not to start if it encounters a key with the wrong chip (or no chip at all). That's all it needs to do; a key with no chip can't even interact with the engine computer to mess it up!

I assume your Corolla has a manual transmission since the automatic is not supposed to be towed 4-down without installation of a transmission lube pump.

We towed a Chevy Avalanche for a while, which can be flat towed.
Then we got a Golf, which can't, so we had a tow dolly. What a PITA.
Now we're setting up our '14 Sierra since it's so versatile. Flat towing is the way to go if you can.
