Programming keyless remote for 2004 Sienna

Can anyone tell me how to program the keyless remote for the new 2004 Sienna? I just bought one off Ebay, but the seller did not have programming instructions.

Any help would be appreciated.

You might have to go to the dealer on that one... Did your Sienna not come with one? Or is it an extra one

Pimping around in my lex

You have to go to the dealer and have them program it for you. That's what I had to do with my dads 03 Sienna.

you don't have to pay the dealer outrageous amounts of money for something that should be a goodwill, courtesy service. Alternatively, you could spend a whole 2 seconds on google and get this http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic50782.htm


I'm gonna imbed the text into this message for future reference just incase the source gets deleted.

I bought some remotes off of ebay for my 03 sienna, and they came with programming instructions. I figure I'll share them with y'all... The instructions are as follows:

1. Start with the following conditions:
a) Key is out of the ignition
b) Driver door is open (all other doors are closed)
c) Driver door is unlocked (other door locks don't matter)
2. Insert the key into the ignition (don't turn it) and pull it out.
3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds:
a)Using the power lock/unlock switch on the driver's door (with the driver's door still open and unlocked), perform 5 lock/unlock cycles starting with lock. A lock/unlock cycle consists of pressing the power lock switch, followed by pressing the power unlock switch on the driver's door panel. Use an even pace and try to go relatively fast.
b)Close, then open, the driver's door.
4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds:
a) Using the power lock/unlock switch on the driver's door, perform 5 lock/unlock cycles starting with lock, as you did previously.
b) Turn the ignition to "ON" (as far as you can go without cranking your engine), then back to "OFF".
c) Again, turn the ignition to "ON" (as far as you can go without cranking your engine), then back to "OFF".
d) Remove the key from the ignition.
5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should cycle (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 transmitter (the remote) simultaneously for 1 second.
b) Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons, hit the lock button by itself and hold it for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door locks should cycle (lock then unlock) once indicating successful programming. If the door locks don't cycle, or cycle twice, repeat steps 6a and 6b, as this means the remote has not been accepted.
c) Repeat steps 6a and 6b for each transmitter that will operate the vehicle, including any old transmitters.
7. Close driver's door.



There ya go. Just a couple pointers.
First off, notice the bold in step 6 c). You have to repeat 6 a) and b) for EVERY remote, both your old ones that were already working, and your new one(s). And you have to do it before closing the driver's door in step 7.
Second, don't test your remotes until you've completed step 7. Then go ahead and test all of them. If you press one of the buttons on the remotes before having completed everything and closing the driver's door, the programming will not be successful.

I programmed my 2 new remotes, and then my old ones stopped working. Sure enough, I didn't read the instructions properly. I had to program those 2 and my old 2 all together. They all work perfectly now.

Searched the internet far and wide....

Believe me PHI, I have spent the better part of a week looking for programming instructions without any luck. I have tried at least 8 different methods, including yours, without any success. My 2004 Sienna LE is just too new.

I called my local Toyota dealer and he wanted to charge me $72! My last resort is to purchase these instructions from a place that specializes in keyless remotes for $10. I don't think I would ever resort to going to the dealer, at least my local Toyota dealer.

2004 Sienna LE Keyless remote Programming

Here it is Sienna owners! I spent $10, you're gettin it for free:

Subject: Re: Request for Programming Instructions-2004 Toyota Sienna LE


New Toyota Programming Instructions



Note: All remotes need to be present at this time, when programming a new remote; all previous remote ID’s will be erased. You will need to program new remote and all other working remotes when program mode is entered.



Transmitter Programming:



1. Close all doors (make sure key is not in the ignition).

2. Open drivers’ door.

3. Insert ignition key and remove (without turning key).

4. Close and Open drivers’ door 2 times.

5. Insert ignition key and remove (without turning key).

6. Close and Open drivers’ door 2 times.

7. Insert ignition key, DO NOT remove ignition key.

8. Close drivers’ door.

9. Turn ignition key from “OFF” to “ON” 2 times.

10. Remove ignition key.

11. Locks will cycle from LOCK/UNLOCK to confirm program mode has been entered.

12. Press and release the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons (at the same time) then press and release the LOCK button on the same remote, press and release the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons (at the same time) then press and release the LOCK button on the same remote locks will cycle again to confirm remote has been programmed.

13. If you’re programming more than one remote, with any additional remote repeat step 12 now.

14. To exit program mode, open and close drivers door and test remote.

Phil, you are just great!
I'm in a similar situation, being hijacked by the Toyota dealer!
They charged $75 to disable my Sienna '98 before we shipped it to California and now in Fremont, Ca, they tried to charge me $109.95 to re-enable it.

When they disable it (disconnect it), they told us it would be much easilier to just reconnect and enable it. Now a different story is told in Fremont, CA Toyota.

Do you know if there's any better solution for my '98 Sienna?

Thanks.
