Some original remotes cannot be regenerated after being used. In this case, we need to renew them. After renewing the remote, it becomes a brand-new original key again and can be programmed into various vehicles.

As there are multiple types of keys, please note that make sure your PCB has to be the same as the picture shown on KEY TOOL PLUS. Otherwise, it may fail.

But rest assured. It won’t damage your PCB. As long as you choose the right option, it’ll be working.

Xhorse Key Tool Max Pro Add Key Nissan Pathfinder 2017

2017 Pathfinder, add-key with Autel IM508. It’s not taking any of the keys in, even their original key.

No DTC codes until after a few shots, now flagging B2198.

 

Xhorse VVDI Key Tool Max Pro Adds 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Key

 

UPDATED:
My Xhorse VVDI Key Tool Key Max Pro came to the rescue.

It’s saved my ass on several Nissans that my Autel wouldn’t do.
Popped right in with it, after running the programming process on my Key tool max pro a second time. First time, the remotes took, but not the chips. Second programming run with the Key tool max pro, the chip programmed in. Not the first time my 508 failed me, either. The code went away after programming with the Xhorse tool.

To use the Xhorse XM38 Toyota smart key we need to know what chip and transmitter frequencies the original key had.

 

This is TOYOTA, everything should be much simpler.
After reading the key, everything began to become clearer, and it no longer seemed so scary.

Choose template 0020 dual frequency. It’s just that these templates have different Page settings, somewhere 88, somewhere A8 or A9.
I write the option into the key. Then program the XM38 smart key to car.

Now a Prius with a key like a Camry.

 

In fact, it turns out that this key is not so unique. This is the same key as on the Camry 50/55 with only one difference, the Camry has a trunk release button, the Prius doesn’t have it, so the board number is different. A good alternative is the universal key from Xhorse xm38, you just need to configure it.
