i see your point depends where you live .in my neck of the woods were only just starting to lock our front doors  lol.  the immobilizer still works though and central locking just the alarm itself. found it a pain when we had heavy rain going off all night ,as i live up a private road with a group of houses in a big circle  ,we all have security lights . my wife had a rav4 her alarm went us after 11years she had it for 13 and has now got a new car without a alarm.  i suppose 11 years is quite good for a alarm to last . just me being a tight git  Very Happy

Hi Andy

Do you have a link for sourcing a new master key (2 button ) Mine appears to have died through corrosion behind the battery .


Cheers

I got it off e bay - i will see if i can find the seller on my e bay account

nope not listed anymore as 60 days since i got it..

it was around 50  -  there are cheaper ones for 10 - but often they dont have the buttons or transponder inside - i.e. no electronics only the key blank

Have bought a new master key from Mr T , The old dead key had the two buttons , the new key has only one button , lock unlock and have been assured by Mr T this is the one for the job.

The question is = does the new transponder have to be registered as a new master key and a new sub key , for the remote button to work .
There is no way to pair the buttons as on the two button transponder.
I have registered it as a new master key and the vehicle starts and the doors lock using the key . But no remote working , The central locking works using the button on the drivers door .

So do I have to register it as a sub key as well ,

The guy in the key cutting shop said he could pair the two keys but with one dead transponder no luck .

Its been a long day today. Shocked

Could I ask a stupid question??? What is the difference between the master and sub key? I was reading older posts and there are different programming methods for each.

I've just got a replacement cut 2-button transponder key for my '02 LC D4D GX and now need to program it as I only received one key when I bought it... Logic's tell me to 'Master' program the key, but is there any issues like only one master key kan be programmed and active, etc? Surely it is best to have two master keys...?

I've recently acquired a '97 GX Colorado, 3 liter diesel, which only came with one key. A bit of a saga, as the key locks the central locking on the driver's door, but can't for some reason unlock it. The remote on the other hand unlocks fine, but locking doesn't seem to work on that one. The button on the driver's door works fine.

So I bought a master key on e bay and programmed it using the sequence in this thread on Sunday. This seemed to work fine and the car started with the new key. However, the next morning I had a dead battery. I couldn't find anything I'd left on other than that maybe the key programming sequence kept "listening" overnight to more keys to be programmed. I also found that the new key doesn't start the car anymore - engine turns over fine, but doesn't start, all the time.

It works after I've been driving with the old master key, shut the engine off, then start with new key. Leave it a while and new key doesn't start??

They key was only 12 off e bay, so could it be a dodgy key?

Any hints or tips gratefully received...

Had to leave my 1999 90 for a while only to find I had a flat battery when I came to use it. Changed battery for spare, started straight away. However, key fobs stopped working I had hazards flashing could not switch them off. In my ownership there has never been an audible alarm just the flashers. My second key seems to lock the central locking but won't unlock.
I have read the reset procedures but worry if I try and reset and get it wrong I won't be able to re start it.

To summaries

1 Have both original keys
2 both keys start vehicle.
3 only one will lock vehicle.
4 neither will stop flashers  (they time out)
5 I don't know which key is master.
Need a. Way of getting the central locking working again.
I would be grateful for any advise.
