2007 Toyota Camry CE 2.4L (2AZ-FE) 5-spd (E351)
Crank / No Start

History of vehicle is unknown used car lot aquired it? tried throwing some parts and then towed to me. Fault #B2799 engine immobilizer is current in ECU, no faults stored in immobilizer module. Initially the key was in 2 pieces when it arrived:) I replaced and register a new key also verified VIN # stored in ECU matchs vehicle-Security light goes out when key is inserted now. Fault still current - At ECU connector A24 pin 11 (IMI) I have 0 volt with key out of cylinder and a nice square wave key on ( pic 1) . 

At pin 10 (IMO) 12v with no key in cylinder and a duty cycle with key on but only for about 2-3 second and then it goes back to 12v ( pic 2 ) -- hoping someone knows theses signals better than me. Thank you!

Have you performed ecu communication ID registration? If transponder ecu or ecm have been replaced, this is a necessary step.

As Nollan said, you'll need to do the ID registration, but I'd recommend 35 minutes, not 30 (and no more than 45).

Do not let this code lead you in the wrong direction. Toyota vehicles will set this code when a crank, no start occurs.

The last one I had took 45 minutes to reset. 30 minutes just repeated the B2799 code. Short DLC pins 4 and 13.

Hey Bill, You probably have this one straight by now, but I can confirm that's what you need to see scope wise, I had an avalon the same year with a bad pcm a couple of weeks ago my after shots look like what you have. Also when doing the reset I have read that sometimes physical jumpering of 4 and 13 doesn't always work but you can "virtually" jump those pins with a scan tool under special
