MyCar Programming without valet switch

0 votes

How do I enter programming mode to get the MyCar module programmed without a valet switch? I have a 2013 Toyota Tundra and installed the Evo One in 2015. Everything works fine. I'm unable to get the Evo One into programming mode to accept the MyCar Telematics module (because I never had a valet switch). Is there any other way to get into programming mode without a valet switch?

All the valet switch does is short the 2 terminals together. You can accomplish the same thing with a flat head screwdriver or paper clip.


Or if the version of the starter is 1.24 you can try the following:

1- ignition ON, OFF, ON.

2- Brake pedal 4x times.

3- The red led under the yellow loop should blink an additional time after the 4th press indicating the my car programmed. You can also try sending lock from the app. Be sure you app is set to fortin before trying to program it to the module.
