Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for choosing JustAnswer.
After purchasing the key and cutting it, you need to follow these instructions.
1- sit in the driver's seat press the gas and brake pedal together and let them go.
2-insert a programmed key into the ignition without turning it, push and release the gas pedal 5 times within 15 seconds.
3-push and release the brake pedal 6 times within 20 seconds of step 2
4-remove the programmed key and insert the key to be programmed
5-wait at least 2 minutes until the security light goes off, after it goes off press the brake pedal once and your key is programmed test it.
I'd tried that already and didn't work . It does not work whith the remote key that it has four buttons (lock,unlock,trunk and panic). I know that secuence works with the key that doesn't have buttons.
I'm sorry but that's the only way I know to program transponder keys with Toyotas. It takes me as a dealership technician 5 minutes to program it with our scan tool. The dealership should charge about half an hour of labor to program the key, In my dealership that would be 55 dollars.
I will opt out, but I do still suggest that your best option is the dealership. I hope i'm wrong.
What exactly are you trying to program, the immobilizer portion of the key or the actual buttons on the key itself for the wireless door lock controls? If you insert the key into the ignition lock cylinder will the car start and run? Where did you purchase the key from?
Correct everything work but it does not start
