You can program the remote portion of your 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 Toyota Corolla remote key yourself at home with these simple instructions.

**You will still need to take the key to be cut and have transponder chip programmed to start the car. Cutting and programming of the KEY portion must be done by a Toyota Dealer or an automotive locksmith.

      Are you sure the car is factory keyless entry equipped? Cycle the key on/off, on/off (twice) and see if it responds.
      If you still aren’t having any luck, you can try rebooting the keyless system by doing an electrical reset on the vehicle.
      To do this you would simply disconnect one of the car’s battery cables for about 15-20 minutes, reconnect and then try the programming again.
      Sometimes this will solve any ‘bugs’ that may be keeping the remote from programming.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the info! The key portion off of my 2011 Camry remote key broke off, but the remote was still working so I purchased a key shell. I went to the dealership and they cut the new key for free for me.

    However, when I put the remote from the old key into the new one, it won’t start the car. How do I program this?

    Thank you
