I've been trying to program a remote (with door lock/unlock/trunk buttons) I got off eBay for my 2000 Camry CE without much luck.
I've followed about a dozen different instructions (open door / close door / lock / unlock sequences) I found online to get the car to enter into programming mode, but none of them work.
My car does not have a chip key; and as far as I can tell it's not a valet key either (I can open my glove box with it)
Is there an official set of instructions to get the car into programming mode? Anything else I should try (other than taking it to the dealer)?
More info: I'm pretty sure the fact of having a broken/wrong remote is irrelevant at this stage. The idea is that after you perform a magic "open door x 2 / close door / lock x 10 / unlock sequence" the car's locks will cycle automatically, thus letting you know you're in the programming mode; only then you'd actually program the remote.
I bought the car used, and it didn't come with the remote; is there a way to check whether the car ever had one?
