First off, is this SKS or not? By saying the fob turns on and off the car (immobilizer), are you doing this strictly through the slot, or through SKS?

There is actually 2 programmings that need be done. One for the immobilizer, the other for the remote door locks/SKS.

Default That's it!

It's not the SmartKey system. Just plain old #1.

And the fob works fine. There is a blinking light when I use the lock/unlock buttons. Just....nothing happens. The other two original fobs work fine.

That explains it Dan. Aha! Inept it is.

They only did the ignition. They didn't do the doors. And now I know exactly what to tell them.

This is my THIRD trip to them this week. On Monday I couldn't even get anyone to come help me in service. After standing around for 5 min. hearing "someone will be right with you" as salesmen walked by I left.

I then called customer service.

Who on Wed. met me profusely and they were tripping all over me to get my car in to service.

And when I got home....I couldn't lock the car. Or unlock it. The fob only started the car.

So today it's a third trip to them. But at least now I know what they didn't do. They have 6 hours to read up on it.

Thanks! I love being an informed owner.

Wow, how ridiculous.

Test the key before you even leave the dealer and give them **** if it still won't work. Mention something about contacting the regional HQ or something and they'll probably freak out a bit.

I'm not used to being ignored at the dealer anymore since everyone there knows I'm married to one of the techs and that we just bought a Prius. Usually hubby just takes my car in himself and does any changes I want...

Guess I'm lucky.

They should go to page 05-2266. Apparently for non-SKS fobs, one could do the registration themselves. Pretty complex.

1. driver door open, no key in slot, door unlocked.
2. put valid key in and out of slot twice within 5 seconds.
3. close and open driver door twice.
4. insert and remove key in slot.
5. close and open driver door twice.
6 insert master key in slot and close door.
7. press power on then press power off in one second interval. This is add mode
8. remove key from slot
9. car should lock and unlock door once for add mode.
10. press both buttons on transmitter.
11 within 3 seconds, press one button.
12. car should respond with one lock-unlock. two means it didn't work.
13. open a door or put key in slot.
End.

Default All's well that ends.

Well, finally. A third trip and five minutes later and the fob does everything. I've now handed it off to my parents with a spare garage door opener. (My mother is a little anal.)

And the good news: the customer relationship lady at the dealership gave me two coupons for free oil changes. That's a year's worth.

Maybe I'll let them change the oil and maybe I won't. But I want to talk to the service guy who is changing my oil personally about the 3.9 NOT 4 quarts and using the Mobil 1 5w30 and magnetic plug I bought. If they say no, I won't be that disappointed.

Have him put in 3.5 qts, then check level. 3.9 seems to be too much.

Default Lost and Found

As part of my job, I am incharge of Lost and Found, you would be surprised how many items are turned in and go unclaimed. Unfortunately, I can't return a lot of these items because I don't know who the owners are. I think FOB's are worth putting a small sticker on with your first name and cell # on them. You never know if you are going to loose them and whoever finds it just might give you a call. You definatley don't want your full name, address or home number on it for security reasons.

Default Programming the FOB for igition and doorlocks

With a background in electronics, computers, and auto repair, I just had to get a true Toyota Scan Tool with "Factory" software. Cost me about as much as a good used car! Did I mention I also have a NGS Star Scan Tool for my Ford F-150 which does a great job.

My personal opinion is this. For Ford products, you will get a lot of use out of their factory scanner. Most non-dealer shops agree that they see more Ford 'engine lights' than any other make. My F-150 engine light stays on all the time because I refuse to clean the lines to and from the EGR frequently-not a fun job. The plugged lines has no effect on anything that I can tell. Therefore, I just read the computer often to make sure no new codes come in and hardly ever get any new codes except a misfire during seasonal changes-no big deal-just clear the code and go on.

MY person opinion on Prius. The technical services manuals are not well written and difficult at best to understand. This is also true with the scan tool and related manuals. For the most part, you must figure out everything yourself. Good useful Toyota information is available online for an expensive price. Tech Support. ( Dealers have it, of course! ) Therefore I don't recommend anyone getting a scan tool at all for the Prius. My 2005 has 14 computers and the scan tool can access all 14 but little or no useful related technical material is not good. I recently purchased a SmartKey and programmed it for my Prius. The key works the ignition but will not program the doorlocks. I can start and drive the car but cant lock or unlock it! Go figure. I have plently of time to play, so I will figure it out one day.

One last note. Not all scanners are alike. There are Toyota Brand Scanners with firmware thay blocks some programming functions. Wow.
The real test is try the scanner before buying it or get it from someone who knows Toyotas and scanners. I am not sure what I have, but I paid almost $4K so I believe I have all the features, but not sure since I can't program the doorlocks.

RE: The new fob will NOT lock or unlock the doors

Have your dealer scan your prius for any/all errors codes.
You will find one code for the immobilizer.
DTC=1 B2795 unmatched key code.
The dealer has not programmed the FOB correctly.
