Do you need a Toyota key fob replacement?  When your Toyota key fob battery runs out of juice, or you lose it somewhere near Anderson, you’ll need to get it replaced (either the battery, which is inexpensive or the key fob unit itself) as soon as possible. Luckily for you, Toyota of Muncie can order the correct part for you and teach you how to program it for your Toyota model. This guide will walk you through both reprogramming your Toyota key fob replacement and replacing the key fob battery, so you can get back on the roads near Pendleton and start enjoying the benefits of keyless entry.

How to Program a Toyota Key Fob

  1. Turn the key in the ignition from “Off” to “On,” then repeat within five seconds. Remove the key from the ignition.
  2. Within forty seconds of removing the key from the ignition, close and open the driver’s side door twice, and then insert and remove the key from the ignition as in step 1.
  3. Make sure that you perform steps one and two within forty seconds. The door locks will cycle within three seconds after completing step two. The key fob programming will begin once the door locks are finished cycling.
  4. Open the driver door to exit remote programming mode.

Toyota Key Fob Battery Replacement: Step-by-Step Guide

If you’re unable to use your Toyota key fob, then you’re probably due for a Toyota key fob battery replacement. To find out what type of battery your key fob uses, open your key fob case with the extra key you got with your new Toyota. If you have an older model, you can use a thin object to pry the case open. Once the Toyota key fob case is open, follow the instructions below:

  1. Lift the circuit board to remove the battery.
  2. What type of battery is in your Toyota key fob? The CR2032 battery is the most common and widely available online and at our parts center near Pendleton. These batteries cost around $5 to replace.
  3. Once you have the new battery, replace the old one with the new in the case, then close it.
  4. Test your Toyota key fob to make sure it’s working properly. If it isn’t, open the case and readjust the battery.
