Rav 4.1 2 Button Remote Reprogramming

Recommended Posts

Hi,

After trawling through the forum and searching the net, I have not found a successful method of reprogramming (2)two button replacement remotes that i have bought of ebay. The car is a 1998 model Rav fitted with the TVSS111 alarm, both of the remotes are tagged RTT/D/X1123 part number 08191-00880. To date I have tried removing the batteries - discharging them, holding both buttons down for 30 seconds then pushing the unlock button twice. I have also tried holding down the lock button until the red LED flashes, then pushing the unlock button. Finally i have also tried the sitting in the car method locking the car, switching the ignition on and off seven times etc. I can't beleive that I have bought two duff remotes but.....

I do have one remote, the original that works fine, but that has been commandered by the wife, perhaps that's her way of telling me that i shouldnt drive the car?

Any help greatfully received.

well if the fob is not communicating you need to sync that remote fob

you will need 2 philips screwdriver one big one small, working in the drivers footwell where the clutch footrest is there is a plastic screw (turn a half turn then just pull out both parts) then move towards the gear stick (same peice of plastic) a metal screw unscrew that then remove that bit of plastic. then on the other side of where the metal screw you will see a box held on with cable ties, cut the tie close to the ratchet part of the tie so you can re use it. this box can be manovered out this is your alarm ecu on one side you will see one rivit and a small screw. undo this small screw and slide the metal upwards. you will then see 8 dip switches and a hole with a green button. now what you need to do is put your key in the ignition (i would take your fob off your key ring bunch to make it easier) turn it to acc or on but dont start the car when that is done use the small screwdriver to push the green button for more than 2 seconds which will make the red light near your gear stick (alarm indicator light) illuminate whilst this light is lit hold both alarm fob buttons the box will click and indicators will flash. job done now just take the key out and shut the doors and test both buttons. if works just put it all back

to make it easier you can remove the part where the headlight level adjuster is. the outer plastic part (where that headlight level adjuster is) just prises off easy then 4 screws on the black insert (i found removing there bits helped alot)

let me know how you get on
