    Buy it from the dealer and have the dealer program the car to accept the new fob. Buyer beware if you purchase it elsewhere.

    I don't think that is the correct one. MSRP on a Prius SKS is 201.26. You should be looking for part number 8999447061

    You absolutely cannot program the smart key without a factory level scan tool. At best, you can get the car to start up with the key in the slot. If that is all that you want, then get a used key off ebay.

    I am already fully aware of the problem reprogramming a used FOB. Parts.com is affiliated with Championship Toyota, which is the dealership to fulfill the order...saving almost $100.

    Thanks! I was able to pull up a item with the part# via the catalog. What is the going price of getting the FOB programmed? I called around to a few dealerships and they're looking for close to $100..total rip.

    Please tell how you will program a new FOB. If it can be done without Techstream, that would be news to me.

    EDIT: missed your last post;

    Because it requires Techstream, I think you will be hard pressed to find it for less than a 1 hour labor charge. Your best bet is to find an automotive locksmith that can do it.

    Awesome. I went ahead and ordered it with the part# you provided me for ~$153. Is there any chance that an independent automotive locksmith with Techstream can mess up with the programming? I don't want to go to one and then they somehow mess up the programming and put the blame on me saying that the key wasn't a virgin.

    As long as they are using Techstream. They may have some generic type of programmer that could cause trouble for the car, there was a story of that recently where a non-Techstream key programmer undid some zero point calibrations.

    Thanks man. The key came in the mail and I was able to locate a Toyota dealership ~20 miles away to program it for free, though they did not cut the key...I was in and out within 30 minutes.

    That's awesome that a dealership would program it for free!
