I am just about at wit's end. Bought a used Tundra a few months back; it came with no keyless fob. Bought one online (fcc-id hyq12bbx), only to find out later the double cab has two different fobs (not sure if this is right or wrong). It came with programming instructions, which I used to no avail. Adding to the confusion was whether I had a factory- or dealer installed option, and whether I had a security system. After reading a few posts here, I called a local dealer, gave him my VIN, and he told me that I had a factory-installed keyless entry system. For $140, they would give me a fob, and then charge me another hour's worth of labor to program it. I say nay-nay.

I have tried several different programming instructions and cannot get the truck to respond (it's supposed to lock and unlock the doors when the procedures are completed correctly). Is there a fuse I need to check? Am I using the wrong programming instructions? Can anyone help?

Also, which fob is correct?

Other than this, the truck has been everything I hoped for. :)

1. Start with key out of ignition, drivers door is open all others closed and
drivers door is unlocked.

2. Insert key into the ignition (Do NOT Turn) and Pull key out.

3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Using the power lock switch on the drivers door, perform 5 lock/unlock cycles
starting with lock. Use an even pace and try to go about one cycle per second.
(1Cycle = 1 lock and 1 unlock).
B. Close, then open drivers door.

4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Using the power lock switch on the drivers door, perform 5 lock/unlock cycles
starting with lock. Use an even pace and try to go about one cycle per second.
(1Cycle = 1 lock and 1 unlock).
B. Insert the key in the ignition cylinder.
C. Turn the ignition to ON (Do NOT Start) then back to OFF.
D. Remove the key from the ignition.

5. Within 3 seconds the power door locks should cycle automatically indicating successful
entry into programming mode. Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.

6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Press the lock and unlock buttons on the remote simultaneously for 1 second.
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 cycle once
indicating successful programming. If the door locks do not cycle, or cycle twice.
repeat steps A and B in step 6 as your remote has not been accepted.
C. Repeat steps A and B in step 6 for each new remote.

7. Close drivers door.

Similar issue with an 04 Tundra DC. Went to the dealer, they want 45 bucks per FOB. I'm not even certain the FOB I have is good. Just bought the truck & the guy I bought it from said the batteries were on the way out. Replaced the batteries The FOB is nothing more than a glorified keyring now. Took it to Advance Auto, their FOB tester indicates it's not functional. Isn't technology great,

I fought this for a while on my 02 with one dealer saying the truck didn't have it, and another saying that it did, but they couldn't make it work. I just put in an aftermarket Viper keyless and moved on. It cost me a little, but it's been six years and is way back in my rear view mirror.

Progamming is different for each vehicle. These are the instructions for yours. All I can say is try it with both remotes. I had to do it several times to get my extra remote to function

For future members trying the directions above without success here are some a bit different and may work when others fail but idk, only guessing here? To hurry just skip to ++ directions ++ I'm just really bored here, its raining like crazy now.

Reading some about Tundras the locks are "supposed" to use different keyless systems on varying models or so it is written?
Now' I also know from working in factories myself the assembly line keeps on moving so just because something is supposed to have this or that part, this part may not be available instantly so they use that part on this for that moment. Got that or is it this? What a :nerd2:
Also' parts & numbers get mixed up somehow rather easily, some problems may show up on the line causing total foncusion like a real pretty old brunette or a young fugly blonde so stuff simply will get what is available or quickest at the moment when nobody is looking to converse a little? I mean hey if nobody sees ya, what's a little fugly right?

Oh' sorry' I remembered one & drifted off there. Old habits..>:)
It may just be a few parts, it may be several, it may have been used without approval from the upstairs brass just a sneaky or drunkly line worker or a stoned foreman or material handler? Who knows after all it is made in the USA and snuff happens pretty fast on assembly lines...Been there seen it all back in the day but long before Toyota built here it was so very common to see a beer or two on assembly lines or in a foreman's desk.
Whirlpool was a wild place in the day and how anything we made really functioned at all is amazing especially after drinking, I mean eating lunch...lol Our writing looked someatang lak dis yb deeand ov aor nit. And we could all read it..lol.
If we left the plant to breath a bit of smoke and actually found our way back to our work station it was a successful night, we'd just watch the line go around and round after 9pm..lol Drunk driving laws, Insurance corp and OSHA changed it all finally. Surely saved a lot of lives including mine no doubt, we drove home after stopping at the bar every night too boot...Very different times that went on way too long.

Now' I know Toyota don't stand for this so don't think I'm saying they do, Princeton Indiana plant where 1st gen Tundra's were originally born is only 12-15min away here and I know many fantastic employees because Toy took a large part our workforce from where I retired at in 2000, Windsor Plastics aka: Guardian Automotive Trim. Then we had temps out the burtt :crying: ...hundreds of them set their nintenduuh's down for 2 nights a week at least twice a month to come to work on mommy's orders :surprise:..
Oh well' it's stopped raining now I'll stop typing and go outside to check out my fugly neighbor...lol I take my glasses off, it's easy when you're older folks.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hope this helps a Toy owner?
fwiw: No FCC code is given here & I have no remote showing any only aftermarket case. FCC codes would be nice as thats what matches signals.
