THAT would not make any sense at all. The programmable key would not cause this. Since the key cranks the engine, and it does, because your driving it when the problem happens, then that part is working. That program is ONLY to get the engine to crank in the first place. THAT is not even on the table. It has to be some other sensor or something causing this. Have it checked to find the code of the problem.

SOURCE: program new 2004 Sequia key from dealer

........You need to take the the unprogrammed key, and the vehicle, to a Toyota dealership. They have an electronic tool that teaches the key the program specific to your vehicle. There is no other way to do it. I provide the reprogramming procedure for free, as a courtesy to our customers.

2004 pontiac grand prix installed new key switch pass key 3 error theft system not programmed

If you have the 'chip' key it HAS to have the correct resistance or it will not work. This is programmed into the ECM and will shut the car down if the resistance does not match. If you have an OHM meter, check across your old key at the chip and write down the ohms of resistance. Then do the same with the new key. If they are not the same OHMs the new key won't work unless you have the computer re-learned at a dealer. Most locksmith's and garages can install a temporary fix by installing a resistor of the correct ohms between the wires of the theft system under the dash (two small white wires coming from switch)

My remote wont lock my car but it unlocks it.. why?

Remote key fobs have a circuit board that, after several years use, can crack or dislodge connections. Our 2007 Saturn just had same issue. Remedied by buying new ones on Ebay, Note: some key fobs can be programmed via instructions online and others MUST be programmed by a locksmith! Good luck and drive safe!

I have a 2004 Acura TSX that I just had maintenance work done on two weeks ago, and I was driving it yesterday and it made a irregular "clicking" noise, and then stopped after about 10 sec. and starte

only clickin i can think of that would make idling erratic is the timing has become out. and the pistons are hitting the valves. this would click or tap and eventually go bang. would not recommend reving or driving it till the timing has been checked.

New brakes needed on 2005 TSX with 23K miles

Thats low mileage for an 05...congrats. It is also way way low to be needing rear brakes!!!, The front brakes ALWAYS need replacement before the rear, unless you have a malfunction...or have been driving with the emergency brake on, (the emergency brake just works on the rear). Also, unless the brakes have been metal on metal, no way you should need new rear rotors with that mileage...I realize you trust your dealer, but, I'd get a 2nd opinion. As for the driving, sure, driving habits have a bearing on brake wear, and yes, you have probably done alot of stop and start, but probably at low speeds also. At any rate, you should not be replacing rear pads and certainly not rotors with 23K...unless there is another problem..Hope this helps!
