This is a follow-up question to my previous question regarding the replacement of the ignition switch cylinder in my car.
In my 2000 Sienna there is an immobilizer circuit embedded in the switch. I need to replace the tumbler part, but a replacement key has to be programmed with the immobilizer code.
I found online the instruction for how to program a blank transponder key for Siennas of later models, but could not find the particular sequence of actions for the 2000 XLE.
Any idea where I can find it, before I order the $140 part?
UPDATE: As expected from finding the procedure of later Sienna's and other Toyota cars, there is a simple procedure for registering keys on the 2000 model that does not require a shop Scan Tool (something like open and close the door 5 times, press the brake paddle 6 times, etc.). Unfortunately, I could not find it with online search. Fortunately, a very nice local mechanic was able to print out the procedure, that he found in a subscription based forum site, and gave it to me for free... Out of courtesy to his generosity, I cannot post it here.
This is not really an answer, so I just updated the question with the latest info.
