1999 Camry, 200,00 miles, Kentucky USA made, Dec 98, VIN starts with "4T1........"
--------



I have the following programming protocol however **I cannot locate the "Programming Receiver"** on my US-made 99 Camry 2.2L inline 4 cylinder.



I have looked behind the mirror adjustment switch on the dash, to the left of your steering left hand. I have also looked under both seats.



WHERE is it..?! :(



I have to remove the friggin DASH...?!
-----



The programming protocol:




1. Insert the key into the ignition, and turn it to the ON position (as far as you can go without cranking the engine).



2. Press and hold the receiver PROGRAMMING SWITCH/BUTTON for 3 seconds (see figure). In some cases the button cannot be accessed with a finger -- use a pencil or similar narrow object to poke through the Programming Button access hole. For most vehicles, the receiver is located underneath either the driver or passenger front seats. On others it is behind the driver's dash. In the case of some Camry's, the receiver can be accessed by gently prying out the black faceplate behind the mirror control switch. The black faceplate is approx. 5 inches wide by 3 inches tall.



3. The STATUS MONITOR LED (on dash or center console) turns on for 5 seconds. For some vehicles, a double chirp of the horn is heard instead of the flashing light.



4. Within 5 seconds of lighting the status MONITOR LED, press and release the transmitter's TOP or BOTTOM button (either button on your REMOTE CONTROL can be programmed to operate the system - the other button can be programmed to operate a second Toyota vehicle with the same system).



5. The STATUS MONITOR LED turns off, the Piezo chirper chirps once, and the exterior lights flash once. In some cases, the only response is a single horn chirp.



6. To program an additional remote, repeat steps 2-4.7.

i see that there are 2 different procedures for programming the keyless fob: one for early models and one for late models. Go to youtube and go to fix it angels channel and type in "toyota programming keyless remote 2 different procedures", and read the description. Hopefully it works!

I did it both ways 3 times --didn't work. :(



Yet it's true that my lock/unlock button has no effect on one of my doors:


Might that, in your opinion, thwart the FOB programming protocol..?

Yes. The control module locks/unlocks the doors to indicate when it enters programming mode, iirc. If your lock button doesn't work, how would you know you entered programming mode?

Eh...my lock/unlock button works on THREE doors.



The button fails to work on 1 door.


So could this have been what screwed me up..?

it probably might, but i can't say for sure i don't know what the vehicle is looking for specifically to activate programming mode. The fob is new and has a battery correct? If yes then you might to fix the problem with the switch, wiring, or whatever it could be. Or you can try the method you had posted which is in the attachment below if i read it correctly

Believe there's (4) remotes, for the Gen4, correct me if I'm incorrect:

* '97-'99 - port/dealer-install RS3000, correct?
* '00-'01 - port/dealer-install RS3200, correct?
* '97-'01 - factory keyless remote
* '97-'01 - factory engine demobizer

Believe the port/dealer RS is under the driver's seat, and the factory receivers are buried deep under the radio, on the unibody, against the firewall.

So let's figure out first what version or KRE you have. Is there a box under the driver's seat?
