Here is how to program it yourself.

While pushing in both the ACCELERATOR and BRAKE PEDAL:
Insert already-registered key in the cylinder
Depress and release the accelerator pedal 5 times
Depress and release the brake pedal 6 times, and remove the master key
Insert the key to be registered in key cylinder
Depress and release the accelerator pedal 1 time (Security indicator blinks)
After 60 seconds, master key is registered (Security indicator is OFF)
Each step must be done with 10 seconds


Here is the instructions for the remote key FOB

  • Start with the key out of the ignition cylinder and the driver's door open and unlocked, with all other doors closed.
  • Step 2 Insert the key into the ignition without turning and then pull it back out.
  • Step 3 Repeat Step 2. Complete these two steps in five seconds total.
  • Step 4 Close and open the driver's door twice. Put the key in the ignition without turning it, and pull the key out. Perform this step in less than 40 seconds.
  • Step 5 Close and open the driver's door twice. Put the key in the ignition without turning it and leave it in. Close the driver's door. Turn the ignition to "On," but not so far as to start the engine. Turn the ignition to "Off." Remove the key from the ignition cylinder. Perform this step in less than 40 seconds.
  • Step 6 Listen for the power locks to cycle to confirm that you did everything right and have entered the programming mode. If they don't, then return to Step 1 and start over.
  • Step 7 Press the "Lock" and "Unlock" buttons on the remote simultaneously for 1.5 seconds. Immediately after, press the "Lock" button for two seconds. Listen for the power locks to cycle. If they didn't, start again from the start of Step 7. Otherwise, repeat the procedure for all other remotes you want to program. Complete these steps for all remotes combined in less than 40 seconds.
  • Step 8 Open the driver's door to exit the programming mode

      You can use the original key that was with the original ignition or the key that came with the ignition that you replaced, Did the ignition and ecm you replaced come from the same vehicle or are they both new?

    • blabarge27 Aug 04, 2010

      The switch the immobilizer and the ecm came from the same car !!! But I would like to have the original key and switch work so there is only one key !!! I have the immobilizer from it as well but the plugs are different ??? I had to get the flat plug from toyota and put the wires in the new plug !!! I used a wiring diagram from alldata for a nontvip car !!! I just got the car back from toyota today and I plan on checking my wiring and going through the prsedure gave me sometime today !!! If you can think of anything else that will help please write !!!!
      Thanks Bill

    So does the immobilizer work okay?Sounds like if the key does not work in the ignition,get a new ignition or a used steering column with somewhat low mileage.I did that when I needed an ignition on my old Buick,just because it was an easier self-repair for me.When you get a new car,ignition,new or used,I always keep the original,make 2 copies of it,then put the original away somewhere,for just such an occassion.Anyhow,I am curious as to what they want $2300 for.Is that what they said,programming?Even if you do not like this idea,I would like to know about the $2300.Programming?That sounds very excessive,even to me.I have mainly learned autos from self-repair,hanging out with mechanic friends,and a couple other ways.I do have a license to fix aircraft so I mean the same principles are there.Mow that I re-read I see you said it should just need reprogramming.If everything is hooked up,what the HE double toothpicks could POSSIBLY cost that much?

    You will need the dealer to program the key with the dealer scan tool and make a new key or poss replace the igntion lock cylinder, there is no way around this.

      Is ther a place that I can find how to do this with the dealer tool ??? I just think they don't know how ???

    • yadayada
      yadayada Aug 02, 2010

      You need the dealers scan tool, the procedure is a series of prompts on the screen as u proceed with the programming, no matter what u must have at least ONE working ignition key, without a working key the ignition lock cylinder must be replaced. Once again there is no work around for this.

    • blabarge27 Aug 02, 2010

      what do you mean a working key ??? I have 2 ignition switchs with a key for both ??? They don't start the car !!! Are you saying that if I buy a new switch they can program that ??? Why not the other 2 ??

      Bill

    • yadayada
      yadayada Aug 02, 2010

      it means exactly what it says one key must start the car, if u don't have that then u need to replace the ignition lock cylinder and then program the anti theft system to recognize the key with the dealer scanner.

    • yadayada
      yadayada Aug 02, 2010

      You need to take the car to a Toyota dealer, there is just no way around this,the system can't be bypassed, it is part of the powertrain control modules engine control programming, that is why it starts and stalls the PCM is cutting off fuel to the injectors.

    • blabarge27 Aug 02, 2010

      I have it the dealer now and they say it can't be reprograned without replacing the ecm and the immobilizer and the key amplifer !! $2,300.00 or take it away for 100.00 !!! I'm trying not to have to pay 100.00 again if I don't need to !!! I think you think i'm trying to bypass and i'm not !!! I just want a fair solution and 2300.00 is not it !!!! I am positive !!!!!!!! lighten up and work the problem with me !!!

      whatever the dealer must do is what they must do, i have no control over this, if u want the car to run then you must have the dealer do what is needed, sorry about the cost.

    • blabarge27 Aug 02, 2010

      Sounds like you don't realy know but thanks for your time and the dealer is not right !!!

      Bill

      Rejecting the info i have provide will change nothing, the solution is the same and correct,suit yourself if u domn't want a running car, good luck

      U know more than the dealer, that is interesting.

    • yadayada
      yadayada Aug 02, 2010

      do this at least have them scan the anti theft module and see if a code shows up, it is a start.

    • yadayada
      yadayada Aug 02, 2010

      Here is a web link to a site that provides owner programming instructions for the cars that have that capability, u will notice Toyota is not on that list.

    Immobiliser bypass


    The motor can be replaced without touching the immobilizer system. There may be no problem with the immobilizer system as it only turns off power to the fuel pump or ignition spark.
    better yet just re-seed the immobilizer ECM with the dealer

    How to change my transmission oil 2005 BMW 525i


    If there is no drain plug on the auto Trans sump you undo all the bolts holding it in place and let the Trans oil run into a large container then take the bolts out and remove the Trans sump, there should be a filter you need to clean before putting the sump back in place with a new gasket and tightening the bolts to the correct tension.

    '93 corolla,4 spd.auto trans.speedometer reads10 mph slow and the transmission shifts real fast.Its in third gear bythe time u hit 30 mph. Also wont downshift at this point either.


    well what you want to do is change the trans control solenoid or the trans modulator.i know this car has a trans modulator but im not sure that it has a trans solenoid.either way it's a lot cheaper than changing the trans.hope this info helps. take care and good luck, manny

    '95 Corolla Engine Question


    An engine from another Corolla up to 1997 will fit. There are 2 engines though. 4A-fe (1.6L) or a 7A-fe (1.8L) They look similar but run different Engine managment computers. The 4A-fe uses a 3spd auto trans and the 7A-fe uses a 4spd auto trans. Also some of the wiring may be different.
    Hope this helps.

    Sounds like you need the updated engine computer for harsh shifting. Look up under the glove box at the computer. Number should be 89661-02K21 if not, you need the update. It is an 8/80 warranty item.

    2006 Toyota Corolla ECM Replacement Price?


    your best bet is to get a used ecm form a salvage yard it should cost you about 200 dollars that is far cheaper than going to a dealership or a parts store. generally that is what i do when i replace ecms. there are plenty of wrecked vehicles and the ecm is good in them so why pass it up to get a part that cost brand new about 1500 dollars.. goodl luck. please rate this
