Hey guys, i recently bought a 2002 SR5 Hilux Dual Cab 4x4 about 18 months ago. From the first day the central locking system never worked as well as i hoped. I would have to get within 2 metres of the car before the remote would work and the doors unlock, but as long as i was close enough the remote would work perfectly first time every time. Then about 12 months ago it suddenly stopped working, so i replaced the battery and cleaned the circuit board gently with a cotton bud (as it had a little moisture inside from being in my pockets working during summer.) But the whole time, even now the little red LED light always worked when pushing the button. So i didnt use the remote for 6 months and then decided id give it another try and it randomly worked the first time i pushed the remote, but wouldn't work after that. So it sat around for another few months. Today i went to a locksmith and i tried to get a new toyota remote, and the bloke sat in my car for half an hour trying to get the "programming" settings to come up, by turning the key from 'accessories' to 'on' and back to 'accessories' 20 times etc. To my dismay it wouldnt connect and he then told me he has never not been able to connect to the pairing settings of a cars central locking. Can anyone shed any light on my predicament?? or any ideas at all Thanks guys David
