    Hello..
    Hope everyone is having a great holiday season...!
    Got a quick question about the above issue.. Yesterday, I locked my truck and went into the grocery store, and while standing in line noticed that my key fob was missing.. I've looked all over and cannot find it.. Now I've ordered key fobs before, but they were through Ebay and only the shell............I basically put the "guts" of my original one in the new casing.. Now that I've lost my ENTIRE key fob (guts and all), what is my next step? Wondering how this all works and would appreciate any info you guys might have.. Thanks in advance if you do!

    I think you can go to the dealer to order new ones and so they can program too. Might be other options, don't know. If there are, someone will chime in.

    Yes, I've had this issue with my other cars, all you need is the VIN and they can re-program you a new one.

    You can order a new one, guts and shell for about $20 online. I got mine for my '06 a few months ago that way. It comes with instructions to program it, very simple took me about 3 minutes to do

    I had to find this for my old 2007 Trailblazer. Cost me $20 online and the process to program the vehicle reminded me of NES cheat codes. Key in auxiliary, then off, then windows up, down, lock the doors, unlock the doors, A, B, A, B, select, start. Probably not the same process with a Tundra though.

    For the tundra it's similar to the sequoia

    Open door
    Insert key
    Remove key
    Cycle locks (count to 10 lock1/unclock2/lock3/unlock4...)
    Close door
    Open door
    Cycle locks once more
    Insert key turn to accessory (right before ignition on Don't turn on!)
    Turn key to off and remove.

    The locks should cycle by themselves which means it is in programming mode.

    (On your new key fob)
    Hold down both unlock and lock simultaneously for two seconds once you let go immediately hold down lock button for 3 seconds the locks should cycle and your remote is programmed.
