Toyota Key Fob Programming Process

If you recently got a new Toyota or a Toyota key replacement or duplicate, you’ll need to perform the Toyota key fob programming to get it properly synced to your vehicle. Here are the steps for a successful Toyota key fob programming that you can do right in your Tampa driveway: 

  1. Get into the driver’s seat of your Toyota. Ensure all the doors are closed.
  2. Turn your key in the ignition from “off” to “on.” 
  3. Turn your key in the ignition from “off” to “on again within five seconds.
  4. Remove your key from the ignition.
  5. Within 40 seconds, close and open the driver door twice.
  6. Insert and remove the key from the ignition one more time.
  7. So long as you’ve done this within 40 seconds, your door locks should engage to indicate a successful Toyota key fob programming!

Toyota Key Fob Battery Replacement

If you’ve tried reprogramming your Toyota key fob but it’s still not operating properly, you may need a simple Toyota key fob battery replacement instead. All you need is a new CR 2032 3V battery from a Lakeland hardware or car parts store and a screwdriver. Swap out the Toyota key fob battery this way: 

  1. Remove the traditional key from the fob. 
  2. Locate the small notch at the bottom of the Toyota key fob. Insert the screwdriver head into this to pry the key fob housing apart. Pro tip: cover the screwdriver in a small piece of electrical tape to protect the case!
  3. Once opened, simply swap out the dead battery with the new one!
