compare the picture diagram at 9:58 with what he's looking at 10:18 the wider part of module is at the bottom not the same as picture where the wider part is facing up. So you start with 1 at the bottom right. He's using 5 and 12 holes instead of 4 and 13 facepalm.
NO..not true OF COURSE NOT. Dealer wont charge you $200 bucks for that. Have a oil change or buy a wiper inserts or if you both a key fab from them they'll do the key programming for free. Careful you don't want to burn, toast or short your computer out and pay for a new one. Again if you buy a computer from them they'll install it for free or worse charge you .15 around $40 bucks. But the best part is you have a pcs. of mind and if the new computer is faulty they'll exchange it for a brand new one PART WARRANTY. If you can afford a LEXUS you can afford $40 bucks or dealer oil change..come on. Lol!
Hey gorge my computer car doesn’t want to go to programming mode and I will like to put my control remote that is separate from the key to work. The car came with one but I broke it at work so I went and by another in keyless I been trying the code open doors and close doors but is not entering to a computer programming mode. And does why I can’t installed the control remote please email me or text me email@example.com.
You better learn how to remove battery terminals..you should never connect positive first...and when disconnecting only negative is necessary..NO Circuit to Ground equals No bateery..NO NEED to remove Positive. Unless you are replacing the bateery or removing for other jobs.
Thank you thank you! This work perfect for my 2016 Toyota Avalon. The dealership was going to have me pay out a whole bunch of money to get a brand new ECU, even though I had a used ECU they said couldn’t be programmed for another car. I tried this trick with my keys inside and the used ECU worked perfectly.
I want to know that ecu sockets lock same is they are interchangeable or not?
and are ECU wiring are specific to pin number(like example injector 1 should be that pin#4) or it is random(injector 1 can any pin# assigns ? is wiring free style or specific to data of companies .Thanks
i am trying the 30 minute reset , my car has 0 acc 0 ignition with no codes i did change the hybrid synergy pump then it stopped running i think the ecu is not communicating with the key. My car is a 2004 Toyota Prius
If you look at the video closely, the right pins got shorted. It is upside down and inverted from the diagram. If you have a scan tool the pins are numbered. You will see that it is 4 and 13. Did this on a 2004 sienna, junkyard ecu, and it worked just fine.
Do you need the master key or will this allow any key to be programed? Will it allow a previously programmed key "used" to be programmed or only new or unlocked? will the original key work or will that have to be reprogrammed? Am i to assume the original key is linked to the smart key module or this? Thank You
Please, guys, anybody knows after diagnostic in the garage, the computer in the car (acura csx 2009) asks : Enter Code _ _ _ _ People in the garage say they dont know what it is ((( I called Acura dealer, they want me to bring the car, but I am afraid they charge too much (as always) :(
+Clarence Vaughan Thank you, saved your advice for the future. This code I was looking for, I found in the manual that came with the car. Was super easy and free!! But most of the time you get ripped off, especially when you are a girl :(
Inna Moon buy a 50 dollar car scanner or splurge 100 dollars or more for a good one. Down side you still need to run it to the shop after your figured what the code is. but you will narrow down what the problem is so the mechanics don't rail road you. Better off going to the dealer unless you know a mechanic you trust. I seen mechanics work on cars and have bolts and parts left over. creepy stuff. So find a reputable shop that has ASE certified mechanics that specialize on what needs to be worked on. Via Suspension, Drivability issues, etc.
Hello sir , We have Lexus GX470 . Yesterday we washed the car and after that there are these signs stars to show vsc trac vsc off car slipery and engine light signs. Can you pls help us to remove these signs , your help will be realy appreciated. Thanks.
jesusgto they dont respond. I ended up taking my computer out and it had oil on it . Apparently somehow oil was pushed through the wires on mine . I cleaned it and it ran fine for a while . I have to figure what wires oil is coming from.
Intransversable I have a 01 is300 that keeps missing on cylinders 3 and 5 , I've replaced everything from spark plugs to timing belts and inbetween. You said that these cars are notorious for ecu problems . When we reset the computer it will run perfect for about 5 minutes then it goes right back to doing this . My mechanic is stumped and I'm kinda was thinking I need a new computer. Does it sound like I'm on the right track here or any thoughts .. any help would be greatly appreciated .
It's my opinion that the whole computerized car thing is just a rip off money scam. It, and the whole emissions thing are bullshit designed so that we can continue using the wrong fuel. If we used the right fuel (natural gas) there is no need for emissions controls or computers in cars and we could all fix are own cars again. But where's the $ in that?
