I have the Toyota issued TSB EL009-07 and a new wireless door lock remote transmitter (black plastic package that goes in the head of the key) purchases off the internet. Under step 7 there are multiple choices for mode - ADD, REWRITE, CONFIRMATION and PROHIBITION. Any one know what each of these choices accomplish? I'm assuming I want to use ADD but would like some confirmation before attempting anything. Thanks.

OK, ADD will add a new remote to whatever remotes are already programmed. REWRITE will erase all existing remotes and program in the one you have. For example, if you bought a used RAV4 you might want to use REWRITE for the first one and then ADD for the rest of them. That way the previous owner's remote that he left in the junk drawer won't work on your car anymore. I think CONFIRMATION just lets you know if a particular remote is programmed into the system, and PROHIBITION prevents any further remotes to be added.
