Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you by attaching the official Toyota Technical Service Bulletin (EL009-07) that tells one how to program the remotes for your vehicle.

This is the proper sequence attached

Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 1 year ago

This procedure assumes that:

1) the batteries in the remotes are new and good

2) the remotes are compatible with the system receiver in the vehicle

3) the remotes are indeed transmitting the proper signal and with sufficient strength

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

The fob Batts are good. The problem is programming the car. It was working before
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Is there a fuse that may be the problem. I've checked all the fuses I can find
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I received you in and followed your instructions several x
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 1 year ago

Let's forgo the phone call . If the doors lock and unlock with the door switch, the fuses are good. What you need to do, before you do anything else, is go to a Toyota dealer service department. At the counter, ask the Service Manager of the counter person to "Check the RFI output" on your remotes. The sev dept has a device that is solely designed for this purpose. You may have good batteries, but the RFI signal may be corrupted, weak or off frequency. This is very common on these cars (to lose proper signal or frequencies)

The red LEDs on the meter should 'peg' to the right of the meter. If you only illuminate 1 or 2 LEDs, the remote is corrupt.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The car should program without the fob. Programming the fob to match the signal is after programming the car
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 1 year ago

A corrupt remote will not program to the vehicle.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 1 year ago

If the car does not ENTER the programming mode, then there is an issue with the Toyota "RS-3200" receiver unit

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The car is not responding to the sequence to program
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 1 year ago

The receiver would be the device that the programming sequence is activating.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 1 year ago

This sounds very much like your receiver module is faulty.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Where is the unit. I don't have a service manual for this vehicle. I work on cars and do not need a Toyota mechanic
