#101 of 120 Keyless Entry Stopped Working
Oct 29, 2009 (8:12 pm)
I have a 2006 Toyota Camry XLE. I bought it in December 2005. Recently I noticed that the keyless entry fobs have not been working as well and when used I would get more than 1 beep from the car when it used to be just one. I changed the batteries in both and they were both working sporadically and now they are not working at all. I changed the batteries again but no change. Could there be a problem at the car and not the remotes? Could it be a fuse? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
#102 of 120 2010 camry remote start problems
Dec 13, 2009 (5:47 pm)
I had the dealer install a Toyota remote start in my new 2010 Camry. The range is terrible and you can not tell if the car is running till you arrive at it. It works at about 30 feet away, but by the time you press all the buttons you need to start it you can be at the car. A friend just bought a new ford truck with a ford factory remote start and his works at about 300 yards. Does anyone know what the range is for my Toyota remote start? The dealer did not know the range and none of their accessories pamphlets had any range listed. when I contacted the phone number on the little instruction key tag the lady told me 2-3 feet. Really who would spend $500 if you had to be next to the car to start it. I told the lady she must be wrong and she accused me of not taking her answer as advice
#103 of 120 Lost Remote and Key for 2000 Camry XLE
Dec 24, 2009 (1:34 pm)
Our remote and key were stolen for our 2000 Camry XLE and we need some assistance on how to proceed. We still have the remaining remote and key--should I order a new remote and key from the dealer and have them reflash the existing remote and key (and spare) along with the new ones? Consequently, the worst case scenario would be that the thief could enter the car, but couldn't start it. I assume I will get hosed on this deal, but don't know what else to do. I contacted a local locksmith and he said the dealer is the only one who can reflash the security code on the car. I'm sure this must have happened to others and wanted some advice. Thanks

Take all existing keys and remotes to the dealer, buy the additional keys or fobs that you need thru their service dept/parts, and they'll program the system to match what you now have. The lost key and fob will be worthless (unless you find them, and then take everything back to the dealership again, to get reprogrammed a second time).

#108 of 120 2006 Camry keyless entry broke
May 11, 2010 (11:44 am)
For no apparent reason my keyless entry system abruptly stopped working. 4-yr old Toyota Camry kept in good condition: no accidents, no new installs, etc.
Paid $200 to the dealer to diagnose it & they could only intermittently fix it by jiggling the wire harness connection to the computer chip. It stayed "fixed" for 1 day, and hasn't worked since. The dealership says their only other idea is to replace the computer for $800.
It's not worth paying any more money to fix this problem, I'm just hoping it isn't a wire short that could eventually cause other problems to happen!
Anyone else ever seen this?

The keyfob has it's own internal code (think of it as a serial number), which it transmits as part of the signal when you hit a button on the keyfob. From a security perspective, each keyfob has to be 'programmed' into the computer, so the computer knows to respond to only your keyfobs. If you want to add a keyfob, you take all of your keyfobs to the dealership and they go thru a process where the computer 'learns/reads' the serial numbers of the fobs.
So one thing you should do to attempt to diagnose your problem, is to see whether the problem is experienced with only one keyfob, or multiple keyfobs.
If the problem is only one keyfob, then suspect the individual keyfob.
If the problem is multiple keyfobs, then they should have tried re-loading the keyfobs into the computer.
If all the did was wiggle wires, I'd take it back to the dealership and have them reload all of the keyfobs into the computer.
Perhaps they did some of this, and didn't tell you.....or they weren't able to load the keyfobs which would be an indication that the computer does indeed have a problem.

I have the same problem on my 2005 Camry LE with 24,000 miles.
The remote to open the doors does not work.
It is not the keyfob.
At first the remote worked intermittantly. Service at a dealer said they
unplugged the ECU and plugged it back in and it worked for about a
week and stopped again.
Today I went through the reprogramming proceedure for the keyfob, and
it worked once. I used the "confirmation" proceedure which I found on the
internet to see if the keyfob was working and it did recognize the keyfob
once, and then would not respond at all again using the same programming
proceedure. So it is definitely not the keyfob.
Any help or suggestions are appreciated.
