Hello,
I just got a silver 2000 Celica GT with only 77k mile on it =), but anyways when I got the car the guy who I bought it from didn't have a remote (The Key Fob with Unlock, Lock and Panic buttons). So I went out and bought a Key Fob off of Ebay, and making sure the FCC ID was correct and got the remote, but when I went to sync it up with the instructions given with the Key Fob I couldn't get it to sync with the car. I've tried several (By that I mean 20+ times) and the darn thing didn't sync. So it would seem my question is do Celica GT's (Not GT-S but GT) have key-less entry stock? I know the car has power locks (The Switch works half the time), but I'm not quiet sure if the GT will work with a key-less if it didn't come with a Key Fob. So does anyone have GT with key-less entry?
And it might just be the instructions that are throwing me off because its confusing at one part. But I cannot get the car to get ready in sync mode.

Here are the instructions given (Please tell me if you done before.)
Programming for a 2000 to 2005 Toyota Celica

Start with the key out of the ignition. Open the driver door (all other doors are closed).
Driver door is unlocked (other doors don稚 matter).


A. Perform these steps within 5 seconds
Insert the key into the ignition (don稚 turn it) Pull key out
Insert the key into the ignition (don稚 turn it) Pull key out


B. Perform these steps within 40 seconds
Close, then open the drivers door.
Close, then open the drivers door.
Insert the key into the ignition (don稚 turn it) and pull it out.

(Right here I'm confused, do I wait for 40 seconds to try part C? Or do I have to do both B and C within 40 seconds?)
C.Perform these steps within 40 seconds
Close, then open the drivers door.
Close, then open the drivers door.
Insert the key into the ignition and leave in the ignition.
Close the drivers door
Turn the ignition to ON (as far as you can go without cranking the engine), then back to off .
Remove the key from the ignition.


Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically indicating
successful entry into programming mode, at this point according to one customer that
had a 2003 model, the alarm sounds until you complete the programming of the remote

Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.


Perform these steps within 40 seconds
Press the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for 1.5 seconds
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 then unlock
once indicating successful programming. If the door locks cycle twice, repeat steps
6a and 6b as the remote was not accepted.


Open drivers door

Note: One person reported that the locks cycle TWICE for a successful program.
We have not confirmed this, but it is worth noting.

Please read all of the information provided thoroughly. This is designed to
try and assist you in the successful programming of your remote in a minimal
amount of time with little frustration. Procedures vary from vehicle to
vehicle. Some are easier than others. Some require skills not everyone has.
All remote programming must be done with the vehicle. There is no way to
pre-program any remote to a vehicle in advance. Nearly all vehicles require
all remotes you intend to use for a given vehicle to be present, and to be
programmed at the same time. In most cases all previously programmed remotes
will no longer be operable once the procedures have been performed for your
new and existing units.

NOTE: Prior to beginning the programming procedure sequence,
be certain to turn off all fans, and any other vehicle devices that may
be operating, especially radar detectors as these items may prevent
the proper programming of keyless remote fobs. Absolute silence is
often very helpful and necessary in order to hear any small lock
cycling noises on many vehicles, especially many Honda's & Acura's.
Heavy traffic noise, barking dogs, or crying children may make it
very difficult to impossible to accomplish the task.

Programming the remote is usually a two step process.

Step one is to get the vehicle into the programming mode.
This makes the vehicle ready to accept the remotes. On many vehicles
you do not even need the remote until you get to the second step. A few
vehicles programming procedure requires a mechanical ability and an understanding
of terms used in the instructions. If you have no mechanical ability,
or are not familar with terminology, then you need to seek the assistance
of QUALIFIED HELP to get these done. We will not be able to teach you about
the terms and procedures involved. Most vehicles are much more simple
than that, but will generally require some persistance and determination
to get them done. It can be frustrating at times, and often takes us numerous
tries to get these done. Do not be dismayed. Read the instructions thoroughly,
and try to understand them before making any attempt to actually accomplish the
programming. You can not do the sequence once or twice and throw your hands in
the air and say "it does not work." With a little perseverance and a thorough
understanding of the procedures, most folks are able to get this done in a
relitively short period of time.

Step two is the actual programming of the remotes to the vehicle.

In most cases, If you did not get the vehicle into the programming mode,
then you are not even up to the remotes themselves yet. You may have an issue
with the car itself and more likely you have made an error in the procedure.
Sometimes going faster or slower can be the key to success.

Numerous people swear they have followed the procedures "to the letter,"
and are not successful with the programming. Most often, they have not
actually followed the sequence properly. Any small error in sequence, or
exceeding mentioned time limits will result in a failure to obtain the
desired results. If the timing is very short, and you have to go back and
read the instructions, you have in all likelyhood exceeded the time limits
and you will be unsuccessful. Some people still have difficulty and just
can not follow the instructions. We suggest you find a very good locksmith
in your area or go to your local dealer for assistance. Locksmiths are
usually somewhat cheaper than dealers.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If at any time you mess up the sequence or exceed the timing
mentioned in any instructions, start the vehicle, then turn it off, remove
the key, and close any open doors to reset the vehicle back to square
one. Then begin the process anew. This must be done prior to each and every
attempt at programming! Failure to do so will only result in frustration as
you will not be succesful in your next attempt either.

Many programming procedures call for the ignition to be placed in the " on "
position. This is turning the key so the dash lights illuminate....the so called
"idiot lights," come on. This is the position right before you would engage the
starter to start the vehicle. YOU DO NOT START THE VEHICLE ! :angry:

Hey,
I have the same situation with a 2000 Celica GT. I just found instructions on the Internet, and I notices that I have 2 sets that have one major difference:

The closing of the driver's door before turning the key all the way forward at the end of section C is missing on one of the sets... maybe you are not supposed to do that. I am going to try in 30 minutes!

Did the modified process work?

Just bought a 2001 Celica GT. Trying to program using the procedure but can't seem to get the car in program mode. Curious if you found the correct procedure.

Thanks.

Now 2020 and I bought my celica this year with 120k miles on it. No fob of course. I bought a fob off ebay and tried the procedure but no luck. Thought it was a Chinese knock off so went to the dealership and bought the spare and fob for 80 bucks. Of course they wanted an additional 150 to program it so in sitting in my drive way with a 60 dollar fob and my ebay fob without either being able to open the car. Might go pay the dealer to do it at this point.

They have 2 different kinds of keyless entry systems. Rs3200 rs320 plus. The rs2200 is a dealer installed system and it takes the BAB237131-056 key fob. I hope this helps
