Programming keys and locking remotes?

Hi all,
After reading a horror story on this very forum about the costs involved
if you lose your keys, I thought I'd better get a spare remote control
for the alarm/central locking and a spare key, as I only have one of
each.
My car is a UK spec '97 diesel and the key apparently has a transponder
in it as an extra security device. Certainly, it's a different key
blank to my '95 petrol.
Anyway, Toyota tell me that I'll need to book my car in with them for
them to programme the new key and remote to be the same as my current
ones - and therefore work. However, I'm half sure I read somewhere that
this can be done at home with a complicated sequence of turning the
ignition on and off etc..
Does anyone know if this work can be done DIY? I'm semi-allergic to
Toyota workshop prices.
Cheers - Andy

Andy,
Can't help with the OEM security system - I got rid of it years ago
because by installing my own system at least I know how it works and I
don't want to support Toyota dealers' extravagant lifestyles.
If you knew the model and manufacturer of your alarm maybe you could
approach them directly for technical help.
You could try getting a new key from a key cutting outlet. If it has
straight edges with wavy grooves on each flat side, it needs to be cut
by a laser machine. There's an outlet near Paddington Station that can
do this.

I have scans, etc of manuals for a couple of the LC alarms, if you
could find out which one you have I could send the stuff over.

Thanks Roman. I know Praed st well... I spent 80 consecutive days filming in
St. Mary's hospital.
I may have found a local firm but if not I will head to Paddington.
