Programming a Remote for 2012 Toyota Corolla

July 7, 2018

I had a customer call me for some advice about their 2012 Toyota Corolla. They had lost their key and needed a new one made. The customer needed a remote head key key without remote start. Customer stated “I want a new key fob (the key with the black plastic on top with 4 buttons to lock/unlock the doors , pop the trunk, and panic). The dealer told me $400 and that no one else can do it because of their proprietary technology.”

I told this client that we could program in a new key and they thought I might not be telling them the truth. However, ReKey Xpress Locksmith uses an Advanced Diagnostics tool to program in the key and we can also program in the remote using the following steps.
1. Start with the key out of the ignition cylinder, drivers door is open all others closed and drivers door is unlocked.
2. Complete these steps within 5 seconds.
A. Insert the key into the ignition cylinder(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.
B. Insert the key into the ignition cylinder(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.
3. Complete these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Shut then open the drivers door.
B. Shut then open the drivers door.
C. Insert the key into the ignition cylinder(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.
4. Complete these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Shut then open the drivers door.
B. Shut then open the drivers door.
C. Insert the key into ignition cylinder and leave it in ignition.
D. Shut the drivers door.
E. Twist the ignition to ON (Do NOT Start) then back to OFF.
F. Remove the key from the ignition.
5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically demonstrating successful entry into programming mode. Return to step 1 if the locks do not operate at this point.
6. Complete these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Press the lock and unlock buttons on the remote at the same time for 1.5 seconds.
B. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons, press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door locks should lock and then unlock once demonstrating successful programming. If the door locks cycle twice, repeat steps A and B in step 6 as the remote was not programmed in properly.
C. Repeat steps A and B in step 6 for each new remote.
7. Open drivers door.
