    The only thing I got in mind is disconnect the battery and try again. Other than that......:notsure:

    Tried and didn't work. Could I take it to a Toyota dealership and have their service center just re-program it for me?

    I think that's your only option unless someone else chimes in.

    Bought as a wrecked vehicle almost done repairing it. It is my daily driver
    I had to do this myself and I was successful. The post I found had two separate procedures much like the one you referenced but it did not identify different out comes for each procedure.

    The guy that posted the instructions said one method worked for him and the other did not. I tried the first method and no luck, then I tried the other method and I was good to go. I tried finding that post again but I can't seem to locate it. Luckly I printed off a copy and left it in my glovebox.... I think :eek:. When I get off work I will check to see if it's there, then compare the procedures to see if they are different.

    Edit:

    I found this procedure here

    Notice the difference in step 7 of the procedure you referenced it says

    where the one I just posted is the same up to this step it just says turn the ignition on then take the key out. you might try that.

    Ok I found the original procedure that I used... here is the link to the original post.

    It looks like the procedure is exactly like the one I posted before.

    Let me know if this works for you.

    Replce the battery in your fob. Then try the programming. A week or bad battery would cause it not to program.

    Had the same issue and just bought my truck (new) in January. I took my bad fob with me to dealership when I got my oil changed a couple days ago.

    Took their tech 45 minutes to eventually get it to work. He looked like an idiot opening/closing my driver's door 500 times! Hilarious because I had not read about reprogramming until now--I had no idea what he was doing--now I do. Now I feel for him. FYI, they ordered me a new fob just in case.

    Thanks man, I went to that website and selected my Year, and it worked great. And thanks to all that helped me on this thread, I thought it was lost forever in the dead-thread world. Appreciate it, you all are great

    fbconvert's method works perfectly! I used it this afternoon b/c one of my remotes stopped working. Originally thought it was the battery, but it was not. Thought I was going to have to buy a new remote, but I decided to look on the trusty Tacoma World, and there it was -- "How to reprogram a remote"

    I love this site! Tacoma owners are awesome!

    I had the same experience. My problem was a bad FOB. Talked to the vendor, he sent me another FOB and it programmed with no problems. Maybe you have a bad FOB.

    Had the Fob checked out. It's emitting a signal -- just not one that opens the doors. I've been trying the programming sequence and I can't get to the step where the locks cycle on and off once to indicate that it's in programming mode. This is before you even get to the part where you use the Fob to get it programmed.

    Any ideas? I can't be the only one to have a problem getting to this programming mode.

    Yes, I had a working fob until it decided to not work anymore.

    Has anybody else had problems getting into programming mode? Or is there anything to check inside the drivers? side door to see if the transmitter is bad?

    I notice on the videos that when you insert the key, the truck beeps. My truck has never done that with the key in the ignition and the door open. Is this preventing me from getting into program mode? And how do I fix it?
