I purchased an additional FOB after losing one in an emergency room visit. Verified that the FCC ID matches. And went through the procedure to register the FOB. I am certain that I am performing the procedure right, as I get the appropriate confirmation lock unlock response from the highlander. Even if I do Add or rewrite mode, when I go to press both the lock and unlock button simultaneously on the fob and then press the lock button, the door locks cycle twice indicating the the FOB was not accepted. Not sure what else to do here...

I have performed the procedure so many times I can enter programming without reading the instructions.

Please help.

I am confused by your question, so pardon my request for clarification.

Yes the key is not in the ignition. The final step of entering into add, rewrite, confirmation, or prohibition mode is removing the key from the ignition. This is when the locks cycle in confirmation that you are in one of those modes.

...and from OUTSIDE...??
I have been performing the procedure from inside the vehicle. Are you suggesting that I hit the buttons on the FOB from the outside of the vehicle?

Some of the newer cars will not let you lock the doors from inside...??

Secret sensors...??
