Key Programming Tool was created by DAB
I would like to know if anybody has had any luck with any of the key programmers out on the internet. I have had two instances where I needed to program keys on a Lexus/Toyota with a Smart Key System. One customer lost there keys to there vehicle and the other customer needed a new Certification ECU to be programmed. Unfortunately I had to sublet the vehicles out to the local dealer, but would like to do this myself. I have a Solus Pro and a Mongoose to use the Toyota/Lexus platform to add keys, but not reprogram. To do this on the Toyota/Lexus platform you must have a Locksmith ID number. I have tried using a local Locksmith in the past, but the person created more issues for me and left me with having a bad experience. Not willing to use them again. Tried an SKP-900 Key Programmer, but it did not help me out either.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Too much plus more equals just right.

Key programming if done by nearest locksmith is far better then get it done by any dealer as it can cost you far less as charged by the dealer.

Locksmith can also do key cut and program but only those who have contacts with dealership. So first ask them about it and then choose them.

It's really how many types of cars you want to program and far you want to venture into programming. If you are only interested in Toyota get Techstream or any tool like the Autel or Launch. There is no tool that is great at all makes of cars also the price factor can limit your selection

As i know techstream tis can do some model key programming for Toyota/Lexus,but it is a DIY tool.If you are a locksmith,it is recommended you to buy OBDSTAR X300 DP Plus ,it can do many new vehicle models key programming,but it will cost about $1600.

So,if you just want to program keys,it is better that you ask local auto locksmith to do it.Save you time,time is money!

Before now, when you have car problem, they say go to dealership.

Well, it is still that way. But with aftermarket guys, things have changed, in fact you get more reliable repairs with professional aftermarket techs, and thanks to the movement by Paul.


Now local locksmith are aftermarket guys, and anyone can. If you can provide such service where you are, then that's a plus. You must commit time to it.

Programming has much been big points for dealers, and that has changed. I understand time, but if it is what you want to do, then it is possible.

Toyota happens to be one of the easiest cars to program keys for, especially via obd.

Like you said, you own a techstream already. Well, that's all you need. Yes you can add keys, and you can do all key lost with the techstream. The only difference is, for all key lost reset, you are given a seed, which you will use to calculate a passkey.

A lot of platform offer this service for a token between 10 to 15usd

One is weboctopus.nl.

The lonsdor K518, Autel maxis 908 are great programming and key programming tool.


Key Programming is car Security, the information is not what you just stumble upon on Google. But there are loads of them and hands on training you can get.

To become more conversant if you are on a budget, you can get the x300 pro3, or x100 Pro2. They are key programmers, for adding keys and all key lost on a wide range of models

If you have any other specific questions, I will answer
