Sorry to hear that. In our case, there was something wrong with the engine immobilizer system being a little too sensetive. My other car is a Highlander and it's likely the transponder inside the key of my Highlander actived the security system of the Sienna (check page 11 of your owner's manual). Then the car was "locked". Never put your other Toyota car key anywhere near the key of your Sienna. Dealer replaced a transponder chip of the Sienna and now it works fine. I am not sure if yours is the same situation issue but hope this helps.

I just looked through the sienna forum as i am thinking of purchasing one in the near future and saw tht ur sienna broke down at 53 miles?!
all i kno is tht if u have an immobolizer, it may have been blocked out by ur other keys. My uncle who owns a 04 corolla (built in Ontario) had the same problem. The person at the dealer, told him that if he remove his other keys etc.(this is what my uncle did and has never happened since) from the car key and immobolizer this problem will not happen.
