Key remotes make it easy to lock and unlock your vehicle simply by pressing a button. Losing the remotes is a common occurrence, however, whether through theft or simply by misplacing them. Thankfully, purchasing a new key remote is not too expensive and, for the 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser, very simple to program. The entire process takes less than two minutes.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn the vehicle off, but leave the key in the ignition. Step out of the vehicle and leave the driver's door open. Close all other doors.

  2. 2

    Remove the key from the ignition. Insert it again, do not turn the key and then remove it once more. The following step must be completed within 40 seconds

  3. 3

    Use the power lock switch on the driver's door to perform five lock/unlock cycles. It is best to try to go at an even pace and get one cycle per second. Close, then open the driver's door. Repeat this step a second time, but do not close the door. Insert the key into the ignition cylinder, turn it to the "On" position but do not turn the engine on. Turn the key back to the "Off" position and remove from the ignition.

  4. 4

    Press the lock and unlock buttons on the remote key simultaneously for one second. Immediately after, press the lock button by itself and hold it for two seconds. Within three seconds, the door locks should lock and unlock, indicating successful programming. If the door locks do not lock and unlock, repeat the process again. Close the driver's door.
