      I'm in Portland, OR. My backup key for my 2010 Prius was stolen-looking to replace it. I'm torn between getting a cheap knockoff vs. used OEM fob. Many Ebay sellers with new knockoffs say theirs *can't* be programmed by TechStream. There's a used OEM fob locally but he *doesn't* think will work for my Prius despite the same codes (HYQ14ACX 271451-5290).
      Do you have any Gen 3 fobs? I see reset services for $15.

      I was referred to you because I lost one of my key fobs, but I still have one. I'm wondering how much it will cost to get another spare and program it and will the second key fob the spare I have now have to be reprogramed to the same mode if I buy a new one? Please get back to me asap. I really need the help. I can't afford 300.00!

      Hi Paul, I am rebuilding my 2002 Prius ev battery after my car started throwing p3030. We found multiple broken sensor lines, but the cells are in good shape. I've tried contacting several Toyota dealerships, and they will only sell me a whole battery, not the harness. Do you still sell gen 1 battery harnesses?

      Paul -
      Ongoing quest to figure out why I had p3000;p3006 error codes when car driving perfectly. If I did need a new hybrid battery, you had written to someone in 2013 that you potentially knew of good source of new gen 1 batteries at better price than dealer. Does this still hold true? The advantage is that they are new. Thank you!!! k

      I have a 2007 with sks. I have one working key. I also have a 2nd key that was used on another prius before. I have mini-vci/techstream up and running. I understand I can wipe and program both keys with a seed. Question is how do I get the seed?

      Thanks for help: Code POA9B. As per your post, will change ECU. Wil this fix as dealer says batt is good, only heat temp ses is bad. Remove orange safety... good to keep working? Disconnect 12V too? THANKS

      Hi There Paul,

      I was told you might be able to help with a Gen 1 FOB. The car never came with one, and I was trying to program a new one I purchased, but I can't get the car to go into program mode. Any thoughts?
      Thanks in advance : )

      Hi Paul,

      The problem with my slave boards turned out to be no solder applied to the two input pins of the optorelays. There was nothing wrong with the optorelays themselves. I will not be posting this as it would be too embarrassing for Dimitri.
