How to Program a Transponder Key for a 2002 Toyota Camry XLE

This might also work for 2000 2001 2002 2003 Toyota Camry Sienna XLE

 

It took me a while to build my confidence that I could buy a cheap transponder key on the internet and program it myself and save $107. The following method worked easily for me on my 2002 Toyota Camry XLE. I bought a blank master key on eBay for $16.49 and Ace Hardware charged me $1 to cut the key. Local Toyota dealers charge about $60 for the key plus $60 for programming. A Toyota dealer tried to scare me by saying I may burnout my alternator. My alternator did not burn out! 

WHERE I GOT MY KEY: http://stores.ebay.com/Bartolete-Keys This key is made by ILCO and is smaller than the original key. Ace Hardware sells a chip key for $75 including the programming, but it is a lot bigger than the original key.

I also found a Toyota dealer who sells valet keys on the internet for $35.47: http://donjacobstoyota.com/Parts.aspx  Kevin Scop E_maiI: kevin*at*donjacobstoyota.com

 

PROGRAMMING:

No need to panic rush through this procedure, just do it right. Haste makes waste.

1. Simultaneously depress and release brake and accelerator pedals 1 time.

2. Insert an original Master Key into the ignition but do not turn it.

3. Within 15 seconds depress and release accelerator pedal 5 times.

4. Within 20 seconds depress and release the brake pedal 6 times and remove key.

5. Within 10 seconds insert New Key into ignition but do not turn it.

6. Within 10 seconds depress and release the accelerator pedal 1 time.

7. Now sit and wait for about one minute until the security light in the center counsel stops blinking and turns off.

8. Remove new key and depress and release brake pedal 1 time.

9. Test your key now. It should work if you followed the instructions. If not, you may want to try the following instructions:

 

If your car is a:

Toyota Camry, Camry LE (1998-2002)

Toyota Camry CE, LE (2003-2006)

Toyota Prius (2001-2003)

Toyota Highlander (2001-2003)

Toyota Land Cruiser (1998-2002)

Toyota Sienna Van XLE, LE (1998-2003)

You can try this method to program it. I did not need this method so I have not proven this method:

1. Make sure all doors and windows are closed.

2. Insert existing Master Key into the ignition switch.

3. Cycle the ignition switch from On to OFF five times.

4. Open and close the driver's side door 6 times.

5. Remove the Master Key and insert the New Duplicate key.

6. Turn the ignition switch on.

7. The new key should be registered after 60 seconds. The theft light on the dashboard will go out, indicating that programming has been completed.

 

NOTES:

I am not a dealer, a car mechanic or a locksmith and cannot claim this will work for you, I just am conveying my experience with my car.

If you lost all of your keys, you must go to a dealer..

Above prices and instructions were posted March 2010.

BTW, I tested the key before I programmed it and it would not start the car until I programmed it. I also took a key apart and found an inductor and more inside the chip.
