    I’ve searched here and on YouTube for a way to program a keyfob for the 2016 Tacoma. I have a new fob with uncut key, am I stuck paying a dealer to do it? They quoted me $129 to do it.

    It's not covered under warranty, or is this an extra key?

    I bought it used and it only had 1 Fob. I bought another fob with uncut key from a forum member here.

    Many locksmiths can program them and it costs less than the dealer.

    I did hear they require diagnostic equipment to be connected to the vehicle to program the key.

    I think this is pretty standard with modern vehicles today.

    You'll need to obtain a copy of Techstream, and then follow these instructions. Not the best video, but he gives you the gist of the process:
