I have a 04 Rav4 . I recently purchased this car and it did not have a remote for the door locks. I purchased one and tried to program it. The program method is quite intense however.. I think I was doing it right.. However it never entered program mode. I am questioning if the remote door locks were standard equipment on the 04 Rav4? How do I find out if my vehicle is suppose to have a remote door lock device. Any information on this line would be appreciated.

I think this question should have been asked in the 4.2 section where you will find Owners of the 04.

Research shows that in 2004 the Rav4 if it has electric windows and electric door locks the door lock fob is installed as standard equipment.

I found this: Programming Instructions:


1. Start with the key out of the ignition, drivers door is open all others closed and
drivers door is unlocked.

2. Perform these steps within 5 seconds.
A. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.
B. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Close the drivers door
D. Insert the key into ignition and leave it in ignition.
E. Turn the ignition to ON (Do NOT Start) then back to OFF.
F. Remove the key from the ignition.

5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically
indicating successful entry into programming mode.
Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.

6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Press the lock and unlock buttons on the remtoe simutaneously for 1.5 seconds.
B. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons,
Press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door
locks should lock and then unlock once indicating successful programming. If
the door locks cycle twice, repeat steps A and B in step 6 as the remote was
not accepted.
C. Repeat steps A and B in step 6 for each new remote.

7. Open drivers door.

My understanding is that RKE was optional in both 04 and 05. You can check if your car has the door unlock receiver in two ways. One is to try to enter the programming mode and see if the lock cycling happens. The second way is to remove the driver side trunk panel cover and check for the receiver.
