Unfortunately you cannot program this key either the smart key portion side for the remote button side without a Toyota approved scan tool that will interface with the smart ECU and the Body ECU. Most dealers can do this for you and charge about .7 hours in labor. You cannot do it the old-fashioned way with the door lock the in and out and so on. Please don't shoot the messenger I'm only delivering the information that you need.
