    Default Programming New Remote Transmitter(s) on Port Installed Keyless Entry System

    Hello everyone,

    I purchased my 2004 Sequoia SR5 new; about the only options not on it were the Keyless Entry System and Leather/Steering Wheel Controls.

    Shortly after purchasing, I bought a Keyless Entry System (Part Number 00012-C0320) specific to the "southeast" region from Texas Toyota of Grapevine for about $120 along with other odds and ends. It came with two transmitters.

    About 6 months ago, my wife accidentally washed her keyless entry transmitter and it no longer worked. I purchased another used remote with the same FCC ID and downloaded instructions here on programming an additional transmitter. Well, stupid me didn't consider that the port installed keyless entry system would have a different programming sequence than the factory installed keyless entry system. So the factory instructions did not get me into programming mode. There were no re-programming instructions supplied with the PIO keyless entry system that I purchased.

    I have called Texas Toyota several times, but continue to get the "we're working on it" line. I don't doubt they are trying to help, but one would think a Southeast Distributor dealer has run into this issue before.

    Dealers locally in Tennessee are baffled as to what to do and want $100 to do something about it. I'd rather just buy a whole new system, plus I'll have this same problem again at some point down the road.


    I've looked around in the knowledge base here a little bit. About the only thing I've discovered are re-programming instructions for the VIP3200 system for Tundras and factory Sequoia/Tundra/etc. system programming instructions.


    If anyone could point me to instructions on programming transmitters for a Southeast distributor port installed keyless entry system, I would appreciate it.


    Thanks!

    The FCC ID on the remotes is ELVAT1B.

I did give them the part number of the keyless system I ordered a couple of times and they were certain the ELVATDD remote they sent me was correct.

    ELV is the Grantee Code which identifies the manufacturer who is: Nutek Corporation 5F, No. 3, Alley 6, Lane 45 Pao-Hsing Rd, Hsing-Tien City Taipei N/A Taiwan

    The remaining characters identify the Product Code.

    Product Code - AT1B operates at 434 Mhz
    Product Code - ATDD operates at 433.92 Mhz

    The only way to know for sure if it will work is to try it.

    Did you find out if the ELVATDD is a replacement for ELVAT1B? I found many of the ELVAT1B FOBs on eBay, but very few ELVATDD. Boy, are these FOBs expensive!

    Okay, for those of you (like me) that have this remote #ELVAT1B and do NOT have a security system installed, I finally got the remote programmed. I, too only had one remote and finally the battery died so I changed it. Remote no worky after that. I searched around here and found several threads and called Gulf States Toyota and their tech was EXTREMELY helpful.

    The tech walked me through the programming for my 04 Tundra DoubleCab but we were unable to successfully program the darn remote. He asked if I wanted him to email me some PDF files for this keyless system and I told him yes of course.

    In the file "multi_vehicle_gst_keyless_identification_programm ing_guide_audiovox_1997_07.pdf" it says on page one below first remote pictured (GST Part# 00012-KS004) *NOTE: Keyless Entry w/Security is installed in the Celica and Rav4, but Keyless Entry ONLY is installed in the Corolla, Camry and Tundra D Cab (2004-2006). Going to page three of thirteen in that PDF you come to the GST Keyless Programming Guide. Which is as follows:

    Step 1: To get started, enter the vehicle and close all doors, then lock the doors by using the door lock switch mounted on the driver's door panel.

    Step 2: Turn the vehicle's ignition key ON then OFF 7 times ....ending in the off position. (personal observation was that no time necessary to wait between cycles)

    Step 3: Press and Hold the Lock button on the transmitter (remote) until the Driver's Door Unlocks. (personal observation was that my doors didn't unlock but once I held the lock button on the remote for a couple seconds, I pressed unlock and all doors unlocked. This seems to conflict with another manual that says for step 3 to press and hold the unlock button until driver's door unlocks. You may have to try both to see what works for your vehicle.)

    Step 4: Lock all doors by using the door lock switch mounted on the driver's door panel.

    Step 5: Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for all transmitters that you need to program to operate the vehicle. Max of 4 per vehicle.

    I hope this helps some people and saves some of you guys the 40-50 bucks the dealers want to do this for you. I will post this in several threads concerning this problem.

    Hmmm.....well that solves the mystery. I (unfortunately) just purchased another system I was having so many issues.

    If you're having problems programming your remote, you can enter you VIN number at http://www.keylessride.com and it will help you identify if a factory keyless entry or dealer/port installed system exists and what type of programming to use.

    I just purchased a '03 Sequoia SR5 today. The dealer gave me (2) ELVAT1B remotes. They didn't work. The battery is fine. I tried 68KANE's method with no luck (as well as the other methods)

    After you did the 7 on/off's do you leave the key in the ignition in the off position while you push the "unlock" button? (Or in your case the "Lock" button). I thought maybe I was missing a step and should pull the key out before trying the "unlock" button. I never get confirmation nor a working remote.

    They whole securekey+ bit confuses me as others with the non-existent "valet" button.

    I actually have the original window sticker. And the following is the only items I could find relating to the keyless/security system.

    Factory installed:
    Anti-Theft Sys & Immobilizer

    Gulf States installed:
    KY Keyless Entry
    C4 Extra Mile Option Pkg (includes Glass break sensor)

    Okay, UPDATE!!

    I was on the Phone with GST (Gulf States Toyota) and we came up with this.

    The method by which you turn on & off 7 times worked, but only after I bought brand new transmitters for $28 a piece from my dealer.

    I had 2 with FCC ID ELVAT1B and the new ones are ELVATDD. The Tech support guy said they don't even make the ELVAT1B anymore and that the ELVATDD replaces that item. Part Number is 000120-0C057 (I think).

    I swear I read that the frequencies are different between the two remotes, but oh well. Viola it worked fine. The only thing is that the factory instructions say to hold the unlock button on the remote during Step 3 when in fact you hold the lock button on the remote.

    The Tech support guy also pointed out that the ELVAT1B has a pinkish panic button and the ELVATDD has a more red colored one.

    At any rate I am so glad I got mine working. I am still baffeled that two remotes would go out and was one reason I was sure it WASN'T the remotes because of probability of two going bad seem impossible, but it happened.

    I have a replacement remote from the dealer since my original ELVAT1B failed under warranty.... they replaced it with ELVATDD, which I see is on different frequencies. I tried the programming instructions here, and it did not work. I called the dealer and spoke with a service advisor, and he said I would have to buy a second DD remote since I was no longer under warranty. He transferred me to parts, and the parts guy told me that was wrong, and just to bring it in and they will re-program for $44.

    He insisted you can run 2 remote frequencies on this system. It's an 03 sequoia with the SE toyota add-on security/keyless. Any thoughts?
