Hi guys,

Just bought slightly used 2005 Corolla S. It came with one key and no remote control. Long story short, the dealership I bought the car at got me unprogrammed key and remote control with the instructions on how to program them both. But it didn't work. Instructions were from 2003 model. I wonder if it's changed since.

Any idea how to program the key and a remote control for 2005 Corolla S?

Thanks,
Michael

I can't understand you people :confused: All it takes is a little "BALLS" on your part ...Take it back to them and demand they program it FREE :cursin: ...Whats $75 to them if their going to get a bad rep out of this? Call their bluff, 95% of the time they will give in!... After all their the ones that sold you the car....God that's why so many people get Fukkkked over because their are so many wimps in the world....Sorry I just had to vent because it has happened to me before I got smart and got BALLS....Good luck...~Radd Guy~

05 models with transponer systems are now programed with a scan tool, that is why the 03 instuctions did not work.

Another way around this is to have a regular key cut, then mount the transponer key under the dash as close to the ignition cylinder as possible. This is what they do when auto starts are installed in cars with transponder systems. Now you dont have to spend a lot of money on replacement keys & programming.

And only dealers have that scan tool?

Those sites I posted were just what I looked up on the web to show it can be done :eek: ...I myself would never buy anything that important from a website, mainly because as you say if something goes wrong your "fucked".......buttttttt Your local expert locksmith is both licensed and bonded and can do everything and anything a dealer can at a fraction of the cost, I have seen it done :thumbsup: ...Bonded, meaning if anything goes wrong their responsible just as a dealer would be....If you want to get it done at your dealers at 5x the price then go for it after all its your money :kookoo: I myself have a problem parting with my hard earned money :argh:...Radd Guy...
