whoop whoop

I forgot to mention when ordering off ebay be careful bc a lot of blank fobs ship out of hong kong and china. nothing wrong with buying from them except shipping can take 2-3 weeks.

yes you can, but it's gonna cost a lot more then twenty bucks for the fob and a 4 dollar key cut at wal-mart.

we're talking a C-note at best.

Part of the fun of having such a great sport car is that the rough edges and little upgrades are done by us, people who love of our toys! Thanks for the step by step. Will try to recreate in my Raven.

when i talked to the dealership you have to get a frs key. theres only 19 in the world....well 18 now. i got a spare after i done this mod.

it was $269 for the key and $106 for the programming. after taxes and misc shop charges the total for my new spare key was $400.

That doesn't make any sense. The reason you were able to do this mod is because the FRS key is the exact same as the Rav4 and Corolla key (from 2009 on up).

Is that for a stock spare key?
