Can you program a new key with this tool? Even if you do not have a master key?

You must have a master key to program a new key. You can't program a used key because it requires a special password from the dealer.

Can someone please use the tool to check their AFS rear height sensor voltage value. I am reading 4.7v on my techstream and think it may be high.

I just ordered the cable from Amazon, but I don't have an XP laptop. I only have 64 bit laptops, but I have plenty of desktops running XP, and one of them is just 10' from my garage.

I doubt the MINI VCI cable is that long, so I'm wondering if I could use a 10-foot USB extension to connect to my desktop? Would a basic 10' Belkin extension cable be too long for it, or would I have to go to one of the "active" USB extension cables? I honestly don't know much about the USB protocols/standards.

Anyone know for sure???

A couple of questions for the experienced guys. I used the program to cut off the DRL's in my 09 GX470 but could not find them when I hooked into my 02 GS300. Does anyone know why that would happen? Also, do you know how to cut off the chime that dings when the key is in the ignition and the driver door is opened?

Read the entire thread there are multiple instructions on how to make it work with a 64 bit laptop. I have it working fine on my Windows 8.1 64 bit laptop.

If DRL isn't listed for your 02 GS then there is probably an easier way to turn it off. I would look for a DRL fuse and try removing it. As far as the door chime, that's a safety feature so I doubt you can turn that off.

The options will vary depending on the car and you can't turn on a function that wasn't originally available. I recall seeing that option on my 06 GS however that's a feature that came with the car. Canada cars are different than the US version so if it doesn't work now I doubt you will be able to turn it on.

The drivers related to the data cable are not setup properly. Follow the instructions listed on post #33.

Just a heads up - the cable from the Amazon link in the OP is a clone of the X-Horse cable (Mongoose Knock-off). Firmware included is 1.4.1 (X-Horse is 2.0.4). All good for our 3GSs, but if you have any newer cars that require the K-line protocol (Prius, etc), you will need the X-Horse model (not the clone).

Major Differences
-Supports K-Line Protocol (can use toyota 22 Pin)
-Firmware version 2.0.4
-Can do Active tests
-Can use Select Customize Function

Debating whether or not I should go through the hassle of returning mine.. (Came in a day for me btw)

What OS are you using because the instructions are for Windows 7/8 64bit. If you are using a 32bit computer the install process will be different. If you are using a 64bit computer I would make sure #6 and #7 were done properly.

Post #65 makes reference to it working on a 2gen GS but the options will vary depending on the car.
