Is it possible to program an extra master key myself? Rather than paying the dealer 50 bucks to do it. Since I posted this message I called a friend that worked with Lexus. Gave him the key and SUV. One of his tech guys had to flash the transponder in the key to activate. this was accomplished by inserting it into a key programmer. Once the key was flashed or activated the technician connected the OBD II analyzer to the Sequoia's system to program the key. Could not do this myself. Still had it done for $ 0.00 though. It pays to have friends in the car business.

In key programmer? I don't think so, the only way to program the key is with the scantool only lexus and Toyota have the same scantool.

There are 2 ways to program the transponder key depend on your model. So far you can program ONBOARD which mean you don't need the programmer. The only you need is current master key (Black one) and the blank transponder key. The transponder key for 2003/2004 has a different chip from 2001/2002.
If your Sequoia is 2001 or 2002, you can purchase the blank key from eBay $19. bring this to any Walmart or hardware store. They can cut this for you then you can program your own.

I have the key and it is cut now I need to program. What is the correct sequience? I have heard that it is called the brake dance and you have to use the brake and gas pedal. Can anyone send me the correct way to do this and maybe how to clear the computer in case it is full???

Thanks a ton!!

I just purchased a 2001 Sequoia. The only key available to me was the grey master key. Here is my problem, the dealership says they have to have a master key (black one) to create another key. Without that they say I am screwed and have to buy a new computer $1000-$1500. They gave me a number to call Toyota National and told me they will purchase the new computer. Toyota National tells me the 2001 models have re-programmable computers. I have called 4 dealerships in the area and none can confirm that it is a reprogrammable computer. Prices for a new master key run $35-$55, the programming if I had a master key would be $30-$75 depending on the dealership. Does anyone have any better, cheaper solutions or ideas for me to explore?

Hi,
I have a 2003 Sequoia and wanted to get an additional key. Could you please also email me the PDF file for how to program the transponder key (to digitaltinker@hotmail.com) ? Also, could you possibly tell me if it is possible to program an additional remote (# HYQ12BAN) for the Sequoia. I saw the other post but it looked like that was for a Tacoma. I want to buy an additional remote on ebay but wanted to make sure that I didn't need to go to the dealer $.

Many many thanks in advance.

A couple of things bother me in my so far unsuccesful attempts to program a new transponder key for my '99 Avalon. The security light never stopped flashing! Should I have had my selt belt fastened? Should my sunroof have been closed? I could go on, but I'm stopping any further attempts until I find out if there is a limit to how many times I can try.

I just got a toyota sequoia 2002 with just the grey key. Were you ever able to get a new black master key reprogrammed? If so you can you send me the details. Thanks...

I am a locksmith and run into this all the time, never, never go to a dealer for key problems with a Toyota or Lexus, unless you want to pay out the ass.

On the 01-02 Sequoia, the immobilizer system is built into the ECU. Luckily for you they are resetable using a scan tool with the proper software. You should never have to replace the computer on any Toyota/Lexus when you lose keys.

All of them can be reset to accept new keys (most dealers don't know this, so don't ask them). Some can be done with scan tools, some require removal of the ECU or Immobilizer unit and can be reflashed to accept new keys. I do it all the time, I reflash them for my local dealers and auctions, this is a hell of alot cheaper than replacing the ECU at $1100+

I suggest getting in touch with a local locksmith (Must be an auto specialist) that has the required software or you could pull out your ECU (takes about 10 minutes) and send it to me and I can reflash it to accept new keys. Once this is done you can add more yourself using the onboard programming method.

My wife and I just purchased a 2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD. I wanted to see if I could get anyone to send me the procedure for the following:

1. Clear all from computer in case it's full
2. Add/Program Keyless entry remote control
3. Add/Program Blank Transponder key into a Master copy key
4. Add/Program Blank Transponder key into Valet copy key
5. Difference in procedures for different year models
6. Similarities to other model Toyotas (such as Tacoma, etc.)

If someone can send me these instructions (preferrably the .pdf from Toyota), I can post these on my permanent website with a easy to remember URL for anyone to refer too.

I'm seeking assistance with this for my own toyota, but would love to be able to assist or help others any way that I can. I have virtually unlimited storage space and a generous 768k upload speed with static ip, so hopefully this is a good asset to offer.

As always thanks in advance to any who can assist. Your assistance NEVER goes unappreciated by us in this forum.

I just bought a 05 Sequoia. I misplace my keys alot, so my solution has always been to have extra sets. Is it possible to program more than 4 keys for the truck? I just paid a boatload of cash at the dealership to program five keys and was then was told only fours keys were possible. Now I have a cut key that will not start the truck. With Nissan it was easy to buy remote off of ebay and program them myself. Toyota makes it much harder in 05. Can anyone send me the sequence for the keys and the remotes for future.Is it as hard as the dealer makes it out to be? lol@cox.net thnkas dave

Thank you for the instructions. I just bought a 2002 Camry LE V6, but only have one black key (I assumed its the master key). Will this instruction work for my car? I was told you can only program up to 3 keys. How do I erase all previous keys, and then add my new one. I did purchase a transponder key off Ebay, but their instructions don't work. I asked for alternate instructions, but just have no luck. My dash do not have a THEFT light, so I assumed I should use the 1998-2002 instructions. But how do I reset all previous keys? I will appreciate if you can e-mail me the instruction in PDF file, kietman35@gmail.com. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Great Postings Folks,
I have a question on the instructions above...
DO you have to have the MASTER key to program the new key? OR... Can I program a new Blank tansponder from the Grey Valet key?

And I f it is possible to program a new Master key fromt he Grey key... then is this a Real master key or is it really a Clone?

Thanks in advance

I registered just to confirm that the procedure worked on my recently purchased 2002 Camry LE V6.

By the way, the reason you need a master key is to confirm to the vehicle that you are the owner. Or another way to say this is to prevent a valet (or whoever you give the grey key to) from programming a master key for your car.

I purchased a 2005 toyota Matrix XR.
Installed Viper 791VX with remote start, and now bought a few blank transponder keys so i can use the remote start.
I have found over the net a few instruction for programming the keys, but cannot complete any of them.
PLEASE! advise?

Mike,
My Toyota dealer replaced the computer in my 2002 camry v6 XLE, and they reprogrammed one set of the keys, and now my wife's key will not start the motor, I can hear the motor turns, but the car will not start.

FOR 2002+
1.Make sure all doors and windows are closed.
2.Insert master key into the ignition cylinder.
3.Cycle the ignition cylinder from ON to OFF 5 times.
4.Open and close the driver side door 6 times.

I just purchased a 2007 Camry LE. It only came with a Valet key. I purchased a 12BBY remote head key on ebay. How do I proceed? Can I program this myself, or do I need a dealer to hook it up to a computer? I've read conflicting info about this. I guess I need to create a new master key, although I don't really know what that means. Please help!! email to paul_huettner@yahoo.com.

Thanks!!

I have a 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser and was wondering if anyone has instrucitons on how to program a second master key. I have one master key already and have a blank master I would like to add as a backup. I get conflicting information from dealers and locksmiths as to whether I can program this key myself or if a dealer has to hook up a computer to do it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Ok,

Here's the situation....

I bought a 2000 Land Cruiser at Poway Toyota and only received one key for the car with a transponder in it. I didn't want to pay the $250 to get the second key from Toyota so I blew it off. I tried a couple of times to get a second key at the local True Value that has a key reader that works when you stick the key in the box and it reads the car code. Then the guy puts in another key (only $35 bucks) and transfers the code to that key. Well, that works except for the fact that he screwed up the cut on the key and they never ordered any other key for my car because they are bone heads....

Guess what happens next? I lost my set of keys (with the exception of a non-working valet key) in Chicago at a meeting so I'm basically screwed. So I go on the net and get absolutely no help or conflicting help for the next few weeks. Thank god I have another car to drive in the meantime. So here's what I did...

I bought two transponder keys on Ebay for $80 each. I call the local Toyota dealer and he calls Corporate and because I don't have a master key, Corporate has to authorize the replacement of the ECM which costs anywhere between $1200 and $1750. They send it out to the dealer who really knows nothing about the replacement program and the day that I'm supposed to get the ECM replaced, they tell me that I have to pay for two of their keys at $250 each and the programming which is 2.5 hours of shop time in exchange for the new ECM. So that comes out to almost $800 bucks. So I go through the roof. Almost beat the guys a$$ who is telling me this and I tell him to go F himself.

So what do I do? I tow my car off their lot and then I go on the internet and found a guy in Jefferson City, Missouri who tells me the exact location of the ECM (behind the glove box) and how easy it is to take out. It takes 5 minutes...... I overnight this thing along with one of the cut keys that I have (without a working transponder chip) and he gets it and sends it back to me three days later. Cost? $200 for the ECM to be reflashed and $23 for shipping it down there overnight with $2000 insurance. He can overnight it for about 60 bucks so I go next day for 45...

I could have been driving that thing three weeks ago!!!! My two keys off Ebay - $160, Overnight shipping the ECM $23, Reflashing the ECM - $200, Shipping it back $45.... Grand Total - $428.... Savings by doing it this way over going to Crown Toyota in Decatur, IL? $382

So what should you do if you've lost your keys? Go to Google and search for Toyota Reflashing or Toyota ECM reprogramming and a handful of sights come up. I chose the one in the neighboring state which is the guy in Missouri.

http://www.a-1mobilelockandkey.com/losttoyotaandlexuskeysreflashingservice.html

Never, Ever, Ever, go to the dealer for lost keys, purchasing a key with a transponder chip or anything else along those lines. Take 5 minutes to pull the ECM out of the car, overnight it along with a valet key to a guy like the one above and he sends you a reflashed ECM along with a new key for it that will start the car. If you did what I did and purchased two OEM keys with new transponder chips inside, they will provide instructions on how to program the other two keys and that's the cheapest way to do it. If you only have one key for the vehicle right now and don't want to pay the dealers BS cost, go and have a non-working key made immediately for $6 for an emergency back up and then go on Ebay and type in the something like "Toyota Land Cruiser Key" and a bunch of keys will pop up. Buy one at a fraction of the dealers cost and that guy will send along the instructions (not really complicated) to program those keys. Anyone can do it with an assistant to read off the instructions.

Good Luck and never give the dealers money needlesly. They make their living ripping people off.

Hi.

I've got a new blank key from my dealer. I also have the black original key to my Landcruiser 90, 2000. Hope someone can send me the pdf-file explaning how to program the new key. My email adress are: kaijonny@hotmail.com

Some instructions at the internet says that the ignition should be switch on after inserting the new key while programming this. Other sites says the new key just should be inserted, but NOT to turn on the ignition afterwards, so I'm a little confused. Hope someone can help. Thanks!:wink:
