My Remote not working

I Have a 2005 Camry LE. My remote is not working.

I had the remote battery changed, and also bought a new one on ebay and did the programming, which was successful, but still not working.

Any ideas?

well check the owners manual for the fuse location of the system. power door locks, maybe even for the door lock receiver. (i do not know if one exists for the receiver). check them out.

i think someone else had an identical problem and you might be able to find the answers that have already been posted. i think that person said the receiver went bad. but i just cannot fully remember right now.

Just to clarify, you have two original remotes that came with the car and one replacement . None of these work? Does any function on any remote work?

I have 1 original, and 1 replacement. I lost one original before.

None of the buttons work ( lock, unlock, hatch, panic) , but when I do the programming, it actually does what it supposed to .... which is lock and unlock all doors.

So, the remotes must be communicating.

Are these the instructions you are following?

November 9, 2007

TSB UPDATE NOTICE :The information contained in this TSB supersedes TSB No. EL004-01.

Introduction



Warranty Information

Programming Procedure

To Program Wireless Remote Transmitters:

Begin with:

^ The driver's door open and unlocked.

^ Key out of the ignition.

1. Insert and remove the key from the ignition switch 2 times within 5 seconds.

Steps 2 and 3 should be performed within 40 seconds.

2. Close and open driver's door TWICE.

3. Insert the key into the ignition and remove it.

Steps 4 - 6 should be performed within 40 seconds.

4. Close and open the driver's door twice.

5. Insert the key into the ignition.

6. Close the door.

Steps 5 and 6 should be reversed for the following models ONLY (close door first, then insert key into ignition):

^ 2000 - 2005 Celica

^ 2001 - 2003 Prius

^ 2001 - 2005 ECHO

^ 2001 - 2005 RAV4

7. Turn the ignition switch from "Lock" to "On" and back to "Lock" at about 1 second intervals to select the desired mode:

^ 1 time for ADD mode.

^ 2 times for REWRITE mode.

^ 3 times for CONFIRMATION mode.

^ 5 times for PROHIBITION mode.


8. Remove the key from the ignition.

9. To confirm your mode selection, the power locks will now cycle "lock" to "unlock" a number of times corresponding to your key cycles in step 7.

If Confirmation or Prohibition modes have been selected, opening the door will complete the procedure.

A. Press both transmitter Lock and Unlock buttons simultaneously between 1 and 1.5 seconds and release.

B. Within 3 seconds of step A press the transmitter Lock button for more than 1 second and release.

^ If the transmitter has been successfully programmed, the power locks will cycle "lock" to "unlock" once at this time.

^ If there are problems with the transmitter or the procedure up to this point, the locks will cycle twice. If this occurs, verify that you have received the correct transmitter, and then repeat the above procedure.


C. If multiple remotes are to be reprogrammed, repeat steps A and B.


11. Open the driver's door to conclude programming mode.

This is what I used. It seems the same.

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

2. Perform these steps within 5 seconds.
A. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.
B. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Insert the key into ignition and leave it in ignition.
D. Close the drivers door.
E. Turn 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
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 remtoe simutaneously 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 indicating successful programming. If
the door locks cycle twice, repeat steps A and B in step 6 as the remote was
not accepted.
C. Repeat steps A and B in step 6 for each new remote.

7. Open drivers door.

There is a procedure you can try that involves temporarily disconnecting the wire between the BCU and the remote receiver. It is located behind the radio. You basically briefly interupt the signal between the two and then rehook them.

hello,

i currently have toyota allion A15 - nzt240

I replaced the receiver door control as my key was lost and couldnt find 312mhz keys.

my new unit is 315mhz and came with 2 keys.... the unit does detect the keys in programming mode (lock/unlock once when key is presssed) but however there is no response after confirmation.

i.e if i now press lock/unlock button its not working..

I checked all the fuses, none of them are blown..checked both fuse box - front passenger and under the hood but no success.

Where can i find the wire for the radio you are talking about? Thanks

I am having the same problem with neither of my remotes working. I followed the procedure listed and my locks never cycled. Re-ran the procedure and still nothing. Looks like a trip to the stealer for me.

My wife's '05 SE is doing similar. I've reprogrammed her current remote with new batteries and all. It will work fine about 10 times, then it quits. I can go back and reprogram it again, and it will do the same thing over and over. I was going to see about replacing the reciever in the car, but she doesnt want to spend that kind of money, and junkyards barely have anything newer than 1999 around here. Needless to say, she's gotten used to using just her key in the door.

Gen5

I'm having the same problem with my 06 Camry SE. Both remotes just stopped working. I'm hearing from others that this is a known issue with the ECU with the 5th Gen Camry. Anyone hear that?
