Toyota Corolla Replacement Remote Programming 2003 2008

Hello, Thank you for watching
video channel. Today we are going to show you how to program
a Toyota remote. This remote is programmed, this other one
isn’t, so we will show you how to do that. It’s a very easy procedure.
You just need to have your ignition key and your new remote and that’s it.
You have to start with the following conditions: The driver’s door has to be opened and unlocked,
the key has to be out of the ignition (let’s do that).
And then you put the key in the ignition and remove the key twice within 5 seconds… 1…2,
Then you have to close and open the door twice…1…2, then you have to put the key in the ignition
and remove, Then you have to close and open the door twice
Then you have to put the key in the ignition, close the door, and turn the ignition from
lock to on and back to lock once (for add mode)
Remove the key… locks and unlocks cycle, which means the vehicle went into programming
mode. And you have to press lock AND unlock buttons
for about 2 seconds, and then press the lock button.
We just programmed the second remote for the vehicle.
Ok, you have to close the door. (*click, *click) That’s the new remote. (*click, *click)
That’s the existing remote, so now we have two remotes working.
So, this procedure allows you to add the remotes, but Toyota is actually very nice because you
can add the remote, then you turn the key in the ignition at some point once, if you
turn the key on and off twice, it’s a rewrite mode, so you cancel all the existing remotes,
and just program a new one. For example: if you lost all the keys it’s
a good idea. And there are two other modes that I am not going to go into detail on because
you mainly use the Add or Rewrite. Again, thank you very much for watching our
instructional video on how to program Toyota remotes.
Those instructions can be used on most of the late model Toyota and also Lexus vehicles.
Thank you very much. Please keep watching our video channel or visit our website at You have a good day.

  1. Hi I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla s. Can u share me the link where I can buy a keyless remote key for it. I lost the original and have a non remote replacement key and it has dot (not g) mark on it. Thanks.

  2. we have tried 3 different remotes and the car does go into programming mode but none of the remotes will work. we have new batteries and one key / remote is factory 2 are not.??? help

  3. hi thanks for the video.i tried this on my 2004 corolla zze122 it does not work i don't get any confirmation.please help.
    ps i tries this on one bottom key fob.bit before this step i don't get the confirmation

  4. What do I do if the key that that goes to the car just stopped working one day and after going thru the steps the door didn’t lock . I tried it 5 times and got a new battery

  5. Worked like a charm on my girlfriends 2003 corolla le. Unfortunately will not work on my 2005 corolla ce. Maybe not equipped because its a base model?

  6. Have tried so many times for my girlfriend's 2008 Toyota Corolla CE and cannot get it to work.. From what I can find the ce's do have remoteless entry but she her dad and myself have tried and cannot get the locks to cycle?

  7. Would this method work if i have lost the working remote i had and just have a spare key without the remote to turn the ignition (the car doesn't start with the key), In short , would this method work if i just buy a new remote and try to program it with a spare key which doesn't itself have a remote? Thanks !

  8. I have 2005 corolla S model and alarm is not activated. Howerver panic button does make it sound loud all the time. How can i re enable alarm?

    If im inside car and locked and i open the door , there is no alarm triggered. Any tips?

  9. That doesn't program the engine immobilizer however…just the remote buttons. Car still will not start unless TIS techstream is used. Is that not correct?

  10. Followed the steps but when the locks are supposed to cycle from lock/unlock after turning the key to on then back to off. The door locks dont cycle so im presuming it's not in pairing mode. Any ideas?
