the factory defalt setting cannot be chandged and will always work, even though you add an additional code of you preference. here are the steps. # Enter the permanent factory remote keyless (RKE) keypad code # Press the 1/2 button within 5 seconds to activate the programming mode # Holding the 1/2 button for more than 2 seconds after activation erases the stored personal code # Within 5 seconds, enter the new 5-digit RKE keypad code. The door locks lock and unlock to confirm the new code is programmed. Entering any new personal code automatically erases the old personal code

Why remote control don't work for keyless entry or power windows and alarm system on 2002 Toyota sienna?

We had this same problem on our 1998 Toyota Sienna; one dealer wanted $400 to replace the computer module inside the dash and another dealer quoted us $200. They also tried to "reset" the module but said it was "bad." However, last month our battery died and it was 6 years old so time to get a new one. After install of new battery, suddenly my automatic locks starting working again at ignition, so I tried my remote keyless entry fob and VOILA--keyless entry now works! I'm guessing the system reset on its own with the loss of power. SO--try disconnecting your battery for 10 minutes. This may reset your keyless entry as well. Best wishes! ~K. Gollnick
