    Yeah, it's posted back a page or so. Let us know how that goes and if it works I'll add it to the table of contents and clean it up for a more "official" mod post. :D I don't really need it, and it's too damn cold out to be messing around with it! 17F and dropping.... :( damn NY weather!

    Doesn't work.

    The sequence works up to the point of #9 where the doors are supposed to cycle once. But instead the doors cycle twice which means it didn't work / do over.

    I tried it 3 or 4 times and it's a no go.

    It's not hokey pokey however because the sequence definately causes the key to be programmed. It could be if you kept trying then you'd get it. I know that's how it worked on my seatbelt chime. It took me a few tries.

    Close but no cigar...yet.

    Anymore clues please let me know. I'll keep trying.

    thanks,
    BUDDY

    Program your factory keyless entry functions

    Print

    Rate ArticleHelpfulNot Helpful

    For 2001+ Tacomas equipped with a factory alarm or keyless entry, here are some programming options that allow you to adjust the way your locks work.
    The first programming option allows you to set the entry unlock to: (A) unlock the driver door with one push, and the remaining doors with a second push OR (B) unlock all of the doors with a single push.
    1. Open the driver's door. Remove the key from the ignition switch.
    2. (Complete these steps within 40 seconds)
    A. Insert the key into and remove it from the ignition switch 2 times.
    (IN - OUT - IN - OUT)

    B. Close, then open the driver's door 2 times.
    (SHUT - OPEN - SHUT - OPEN)

    C. Insert the key into and remove it from the ignition switch 1 time.
    (IN - OUT)

    D. Close, then open the driver's door 2 times.
    (SHUT - OPEN - SHUT - OPEN)

    E. Insert the key into the ignition switch and leave it in.
    F. Close the driver's door.
    G. Turn the key from LOCK to ON 4 times, ending at LOCK
    (LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK)

    H. Wait for the locks to stop, then remove the key from the ignition switch.
    3. On the key fob, press and release both LOCK and UNLOCK buttons at the same time.
    A. [For all doors unlock] press and release the UNLOCK button.
    B. [For driver door unlock] press and release the LOCK button.
    4. Open the driver's door. The programming is complete. If programming did not occur, start over.

    The second programming option allows you to set the doors to lock when when the key is turned on, and unlock when the key is turned off.
    1. Open the driver's door. Remove the key from the ignition switch.
    2. (Complete these steps within 30 seconds)
    A. Insert the key into the ignition switch.
    B. Close, then open the driver's door 2 times.
    (SHUT - OPEN - SHUT - OPEN)

    C. Turn the key from LOCK to ON 5 times, ending at ON
    (LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON)

    3. Programming option (select one of the following).
    A. [Ignition controlled lock ON] Close the driver's door.
    B. [Ignition controlled lock OFF] Close the driver's door twice, leaving it closed.
    (SHUT - OPEN - SHUT)

    4. Turn the key to LOCK. The programming is complete. If programming did not occur, start over.


    When performing the programming, the park lights may or may not flash to confirm that the program was accepted. The only way to confirm the programming is to test them to see if they are functioning as desired.
    These procedures may or may not apply to pre-2001 models.

    I have never tried this, hope it works. The numbering is slightly different so I posted it hoping you can get the desired effects.

    I'm thinking about doing the above mod, but putting a cigarette lighter plug under the hood instead of the switch. That way I can plug in my spot light at the front of the truck as well as that little work light. I already have a 12v outlet in the bed, so one under the hood means I could use either light all along the truck. :D

    OH! ok. :laugh: That sounds better. Good luck with the install. Several people have mentioned how it doesn't fit right and rubs. Hopefully your's will work as it should.

    True. I could add that. I don't have any pics since I didn't do it myself. Could find a post elsewhere or just general instructions.

    It is nice but... you better check a all inclusive option from GM (junkyard), there are several photos that shows the TILT HOOD LIGHTS and this mini mod you did to your underhood, the corded reel light I installed comes with a 24 foot long cable and with built-in on-off switch, here are the photos of both:

    I got one at Wal-Mart for $4. Just waiting for it to warm up above freezing to install it! Got the light, cig plug, and a pin switch so I can leave it plugged in so it'll come on when I open the hood.

    With the TILT under hood lights you will need only a direct cable to the battery or as I did a fuse box to power them and ground is already "included" when bolted to the hood, they turn on as you open the hood and if you add as some of us has done… hood struts it will be a fully automatic light.

    Did it today and will get pics up as soon as I can and do the right up.

    My driveway is damn near the only flat place I park. I'd rather not have a mercury or other tilt switch draining my battery while I'm parked on a hill. So I don't touch mercury switches.
