Question about Toyota Highlander

2 Answers

I hired a locksmith to program a remote (key fob) for my '08 Highlander. He couldn't program it and said it was a fuse. I don't know which fuse to replace. Where's the fuse location?

Was it a brand new transponder key and you have a working transponder key? You have to have a working key to make a duplicate. And not all transponder keys are programable if its has been already been assign a code before. Toyota will send you a new key and transponder unit free only problem is that it gets sent to a local dealership only and they charge to install it.

SOURCE: central locking system stopped working

If the A6 layout for the modules is the same as my A4, the lock pump is in the rear corner of the car, on the passenger side. In the trunk, pull up the carpeting behind the passenger rear wheel, and tucked down in there is the pump assembly. They're known to go bad and it's a pretty likely cause for your problem, provided your fuses are not blown.

Are the OTHER remotes working properly? If so, there is no wiring issues. It is rare that wiring can cause the remotes to be inoperative...Sadly, I have observed many remote/fobs that simply fail. I would advise both of you to take your fobs to your local Toyota dealer, and have the Service Dept check the RF output from the remotes on their hand-held detector. This is the only way to determine if the fob/remote is indeed working. No RF = no lock/unlock. All Toyota dealers should have this box, it is a required special tool. The part number for the detector is 00002-09001-01

Locked keys in 1999 lincoln town car executive and no keyless entry. can I gain entrance without an expensive locksmith?


Hello Jennifer Jackson...

No... even LINCOLN windows are harder to break
(sorry... your LINCOLN is pretty secure).

Worse... the best price I've paid to get a double sided
PATS (passive anti-theft system) key cut = $6.

Bring your own key... But this was all about the price of PREVENTING your current situation... (oops).

If your ONLY key is truly "inside"...
Your goose is pretty much cooked... The cost of
the LOCKSMITH is pretty trivial compared to your
alternatives... Dealers will zing you MUCH BETTER
than your "expensive locksmith"...

But what ever you do... (my recommendation)... Since
you prefer not to be prepared... (no door code or FOB)
Don't pass on the opportunity to have that same SMITHY
at least tell you about your door code POSSIBILITIES
or at least program a remote FOB for you ...

A RESPONSIBLE "expensive locksmith" will
explain the WISDOM of NEVER having less than 2 (TWO) transponder keys. (by reading your owners manual you can program the FOBs yourself (FREE).

How do you manage the "no" keyless entry...?
I remain pretty sure the number pad... & KEY FOB
(wireless transmitter) were standard equipment...

2 SPARE keys minimum... ALWAYS.

How do I program my key fob to a 94 Olds 98 regency?


Assuming it's a standard GM half moon style key fob, you can get replacements soon many sources including dealerships, locksmiths, and ebay.

Programming depends on whether you already have a working key?

If you don't, you will have to go to a dealer or find a locksmith who has the right equipment (I suspect not many do).

THis works for Holden Commodores of that era, most GM products should be similar:
If you have a working key, it's relatively straight forward, as the car can program new keys.
1 remove screws holding key blades into the remote heads of both keys.
2 remote the key blade from the *new* key and put aside.
3 insert old (working) key into ignition and start the car.
4 with car running, carefully slide the remote head off the key in the ignition barrel. Car should stay running.
5 carefully slide new remote head onto the old key blade sitting in ignition. Make sure the metal contact inside the key blade insert makes contact with the key blade. Make certain the small contact pin on the facing edge of the remote makes contact with the metal slide ring on the outside of the ignition barrel - these two contacts form a circuit.
6 The key fob should program almost immediately, but leave the fob in position for 30 secs to a minute to ensure its done.
7 turn car off and reassemble keys.
8 test all functions of new key - remote entry and engine start.

(get key blank cut by a locksmith before commencing the above!)

My 2004 Town and country van had to be jump started and now key fob won't lock or unlock doors.Took key fob to locksmith he said key fob was working, van was not reading signal and he didn't know what


The fob may need to be reprommed to the car. Do the following:

Grab your working remote. Push the LOCK button five times, allowing exactly two seconds to pass between each press of the LOCK button. Insert the ignition key and turn it to RUN. Push and hold UNLOCK on the working remote for 6 seconds. Push and hold PANIC for one second while continuing to hold UNLOCK. Release both buttons at the same time.
Push any button on the remote to program it. Then push any button on the remote that was already programmed. It has to be reprogrammed. The remote is now programmed to the vehicle. Turn the key to OFF.

How to program keyless entry remote 2001 cadillac deville. replacing both remotes


I have the correct answer for you, but it is probably not what you want to hear. A 2001 Cadillac Deville has NO self-programming procedures for remotes. You can add transponder keys if you have the master key, otherwise you need to go to a professional to get them programmed because they need special equipment to communicate with the vehicle.

I would suggest a locksmith before the dealer as they are usually more affordable. We always recommend an ALOA (Associated Locksmiths of America) member, as their code of ethics means they will treat you fair.

I also suggest avoiding the dealer for the actual key fob remotes for your Cadillac Deville. My company sells factory OEM key fob replacements at a steep discount. Check this link to find your vehicle key fob. https://keylessentryremotefob.com/

Transponder chip in key fob


This will all depend upon what country you are in, and if the vehicle even has the need for the chip to be programmed at all.

When you put a proper key in the ignition, is there a antitheft logo that cycles with the other indicators?

VW antitheft indicator in the USA often looks like a car with a key under it

In the USA, thought the keys have a MEGAMOS RFID chip, no system was active until 2000, and on some models, not until 2002

A system requires a VIRGIN chip. Once the chip is programmed to a car, the chip is locked to that car. Some new software can unlock and refresh some chips, but not 100%

I had a client come in TODAY with a 2003 Passat, and an EBAY flip key.... I wasted a half hour programming time..... but I carry the lower half of remote, which hold the blade and the chip, so was able to fix client up, when EBAY failed.

If this was helpful, please post a nice review for City Lock in Boulder Colorado listings on Google Maps, Yahoo etc. This listing will link you to my website as well. On my website are resources for finding a legitimate locksmith near you. Be sure you are hiring a REAL locksmith!

Thank You
