I am looking for directions on how to program a new key for my 2008 Yaris. There are few threads and information on how to do Mk1 Yaris but there is nothing in terms of the Mk2 Yaris and I don't want to lose the only working key i have for the car by following the wrong procedure.

Locking or immobilizer ? The immobilizer programming is a main dealer, somewhere that has a high end scan tool or Techstream

If its just the locking it should be the same as the mk1

As flash22 already said, Techstream.

You go to eBay or some site like that, buy an adapter cable, 10-15 GBP, after that you need a laptop where you will install the program that comes with it.

Techstream is Toyota's own diagnostic tool.

The software they provide is pirated. 

You can always download it for free from Toyota, and then pay the license per hour/day/week/year etc.

Up to you.

 

Here's a workshop manual that should also apply to your car, might come in handy sometimes...

Your options are:

- Pay Toyota to do it for you

- Pay someone else to do it

- buy the cable (which is a clone of the real thing) from eBay, the pirated software comes with it (lot of people use it like this)

- buy the cloned cable, but pay Toyota for the limited time use of the SW

 

I guess you can also buy the cable from Toyota, but for a nice price..

 

All in all it's a powerful diagnostic tool however you use it.

do you have a link for a cable and the software from a UK seller? I only managed to find the cable to be honest.

They all usually advertise only the cable, but they ship it with a small cd that has the software.

Even if you dont get it, someone from here can give you a copy, only need to ask..

As the car is concerned, the version in your case does not matter much.

Older versions work best on windows xp laptops, on win 7 and you could make it work, but there's plenty of tweaks required.

But i saw people saying that  in newer version it's fixed and they work out of the box with the cable.

 

In any case the cd comes with instructions how to set it up, it's not hard, and you can ask here.
