Question about 2001 Toyota Avalon

2 Answers

Remote door opener... key fob

Remote door opener does not work. Put a new battery in the key fob but it still does not work. Some one suggested the problem could be a blown fuse. However there are numerous fuses in different locations. Plus, they are hard to get to and hard to remove.

Is there a manual showing the name and location of each fuse?
Could there be another problem and solution?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Gale

    Mine is a 1997 Avalon with the same problem. I also replaced the battery (I tried two different new ones), and although it sometimes works when I press it VERY firmly, even that is unpredictable at best.

It could be that the remotes were out of Synch with the receiver (Car). Pl goto this page & try to resynchronize.

Are the OTHER remotes working properly? If so, there is no wiring issues. It is rare that wiring can cause the remotes to be inoperative...Sadly, I have observed many remote/fobs that simply fail. I would advise both of you to take your fobs to your local Toyota dealer, and have the Service Dept check the RF output from the remotes on their hand-held detector. This is the only way to determine if the fob/remote is indeed working. No RF = no lock/unlock. All Toyota dealers should have this box, it is a required special tool. The part number for the detector is 00002-09001-01

Try with brand new key fob battery and see.If that helps.
Otherwise May be keyfob needs to be reprogrammed.

KEYFOB PROGRAMMING


Keyfob remote reprogramming is not very difficult but on some cases it can be done by dealer service tools.

If the remote s faulty then key fob will not get programmed.

Insert the key in ignition. Turn the key to on position, and cycle the key three times off-on-off-on-off-on. Then with the key fob remote select your remote and then try to operate the vehicle with remote.

These are just the basic procedure, but sometimes it will not help.

On that case dealer is the only option.

Keyless entry remote wont progam


It will not unlock the door the first time you push the button. This only registers the key fob ID into the computer. When you press the button on the key fob, press it only once and wait for the hazzard lights to flash twice again. Then open the driver's door. The key fob will not become active until you open the driver's door.

If your hazzard lights do not flash after you press the button on the key fob, there is most likely a problem with the key fob. Either it is not the correct key fob for your vehicle, or the battery is not in correctly or the key fob is defective.

The only other advice I can give you is to have it programmed with a scan tool. This way, the scan tool can verify that the computer in your vehicle is receiving the signal from the key fob.

It can be done either way, but if the "no scanner" way does not work, the rest of the system should be checked for possible problems.

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed

Key fob not opening up car


On a 1997 civic I had, every now and again the remote would stop opening or locking the car. To get it working again, you needed to open the doors using the key and start the engine. Next time you tried the remote, low and beholdit would open and lock the doors again.

Mine had an ifra red key fob, i.e. the type that has to be pointed in to the interior of the car through the windows before pressing the button, rather than a radio type, i.e. so long as you're within a certain distance of the car, it doesnt matter which direct the key fob is pointing.

Hope this is of some help.

Program a remote key for 03 A6


I have an A4 and did this to re-program my key:

1. used the key to start the car...then turned it off
2. put the key in the driver door (door closed)
3. pressed the lock button on the key fob once
4. turned the key to lock the door.

This is basically the steps in the owners manual, but the car must be started with the key first, and the key must be in the door lock before pressing the lock button.
