|noresults||Thanks rav4.32010. I got it out but in two pieces. It was in there good. I guess I will have to see if anyone sells the rfid chip and then get the techstream. Anyone buy just the chip?|

U need to transfer the immobiler chip from your original key to the new shell. See tbis thread.
Circle in red rfid chip.. must dig it out. They mustve used crazy epoxy cuz its in there good.

|noresults||I purchased one of the flip keys for my 2006 RAV4 and transferred the guts to the new flip key. Works the door lock and will work in the ignition but will not start the car. Evidently I am missing the imolizer chip. Do not see the chip inside old key fob. Is it expoxied inside the plastic housing?|

The small retainer that attaches the flip key to my keychain broke last week. Fortunately it broke in my pocket, so I didn't lose the flip key. I replaced both mine and my wife's retainer with a generic ring. The buttons are still wearing, but I have memorized their location. I must have carburetor cleaner in my skin.
L is for Lock and is the Left button.

Just to confirm, I was not able to add the used smartkey fob to my Rav4 using the techstream software. I found a locksmith who programmed my fob and cut my laser key for me and I saved a lot of cash. Now to use the techstream on both my 02 and 09 and change some of the other settings.
Just wish I could find something just as cheap and easy to attain to work on my Nissan Maxima now

Ok, I hooked up the Techstream today and took a look.
If you got set up properly, there will be a listing on the Selection page for 'Smartkey'. Double click on that.
On the left side, click on Utilities. One of the options then will be Smartkey reset. In the description given at the bottom when you click on this option, it says you will need a password. I don't know anything about that, since I never used it. You should have nothing to lose by double clicking on this. If it really requires a password, you will have done no harm.
That's really all I can tell you. Perhaps someone else here has actually done this reset and can tell us about it.
At least while I was hooked up, I stopped the car from beeping every time I unlocked it. I leave really early in the AM and never liked that beeping at an early hour.

It will have to wait for the weekend, I get home too late to do this during the week.
I didn't do a master reset, like I said in an earlier post my prox worked without having to reset.
If you look at the very beginning of this thread, Junebug has some screen shots of the process. It's not called master reset, it's something like erase transponders.
One other point for everyone here, I've heard from several locksmiths that battery voltage is critical for these procedures. They usually use a battery booster pack to make sure they are getting the proper voltage.

I am at work and don't have the Techstream here, but it is pretty much menu driven.
When you go into the section for adding a key, it asks whether it is a Smartkey or regular key.
I believe it then asks whether you are just adding or erasing all existing keys. That would be a master reset.
Go into the Techstream software and get to the adding a key section. It is menu driven from there.

|reburns||Normkol - You keep mentioning doing a master reset. Do you know how to do this with Techstream? Do you have instructions that you are willing to share?|
