    I saw a post on prius-2G forum that the 06 FOB remote part number is 89994-47061 .
    The FOB remote for the 04, 05 prius is 89994-47060 .

    If you are thinking about buying a old used FOB from Ebay for your new 06 prius beware !!

    I believe you can program a 06 FOB to work on the 04, 05 prius.
    but you can't program a 04, 05 FOB to work on the 06 prius.


    Hope this helps,

    Are you sure?
    Where did you get your data from?
    They could have just updated the part number. But that doesn't mean it doesn't work.
    Can you confirm this?

    No I am not sure, I just came across a post on another forum. prius-2G, I think you have to join to read the post here is the post:


    Evidently we're going to have to have the 06 fobs programmed to the
    older cars...

    PN for the SmartKey fob with blank mechanical key is:
    04 89994-47061 (*was* 89994-47060)
    06 89994-47061

    So they updated the fob system, and updated the 06 fobs so they'll work
    with 04-06, but in the meantime the 04-05 fobs won't fully work with the
    06s (as you noted, they only work to start the 06 while in the slot, no
    SK/SS, no buttons).

    I am going to call Toyota TIS and scream bloody murder at them to try to
    get them to swap my 2 extra 89994-47060 fobs for 89994-47061 so I can
    get those 2 and the original 06 fobs programmed to both cars. I'm going
    to be out about $150-60 to do this even if they swap the fobs for free,
    as the 2 new fobs will have to be programmed to each car. Maybe I can
    scream at TIS enough to get it covered under warranty or something, but
    I'm not going to hold my breath.

    One of these days I'm just going to choke down the $3K for a THHT so I
    can do stuff like this on my own. Maybe after the 06 is paid off...

    Here's the deal: SKS turned out to interfere with Speedpass (mobil and other gas station payment system). Toyota revised the fobs to fix this. This fix is for all Prii 2004 and newer from VIN JTDKB2#U#40011406 and up. If you have a 2004 and its VIN is before JTDKB2#U#40011406, then go to the dealer, tell them it interferes with Speedpass, and tell them to reference EL001-04. They will cover this under warranty as long as you are under 3 year, 36,000 miles. If you don't use Mobil/Exxon/Esso gas stations, it's not a problem.

    I'll also add that if you bought part number 89904–47060 anytime after January 7, 2004, you got part number 89904–47061.

    Also, this change was made very early on in production, so odds are you get the new style SKS fob if you buy a used one.

    Just one more note, SILVER logo fobs are SKS, otherwise they are KEYLESS ONLY. Be careful of this when buying used.

    I think there is another change for 06 because from what your saying, a 05 FOB should work on a 06 prius but according to the posts I have read no one has been able to get it to work.

    If anyone has been able to program a 05 FOB on their 06 prius please post here !

    You think there is a secret, undocumented mystery change that uses the SAME part number? Doubtful. All Prius fobs have been the same since Jan 04.

    What dealership is failing to add another Smart Key?

    Read the 3rd post .
    The guy is saying that 04 and 05 FOBs don't work on the 06 Prius.

    According to you the 04 may not work but the 05 should be fine.

    I posted elsewhere but will post here concerning the smartkey. I purchased a smartkey from someone who had their 05 totaled. I took it in with my other two good keys and the dealership was unable to reprogram the key to work. The best they could do was get it to start the car by placing it in the ignition slot. It will not open doors or work while in your pocket. My 06 is an early car made in 12/05.

    Manny,

    Just to be sure I understand correctly are you saying you purchased a 2005 FOB with the silver logo and it could not be reprogramed for a 2006?

    I ask this because when I first got my car I did not realize there were two different types of FOBs. The FOB without the silver logo will not work when it is in your pocket - you must have a FOB with the silver logo.

    To clarify your post, are you saying you bought a 2005 FOB with the silver logo and:

    1. it can not be reprogrammed to open the door when you press the button on the FOB;
    2. it can not be reprogrammed to open the door when the FOB is in your pocket?

    If this is what you are saying - the next thing to determine is if this is a damaged FOB or are the new FOBs for the 2006 not really the same as the 2005's.

    I don't think we want to conclude that they are not interchangeable based upon one FOB which might be damaged.

    If you do indeed have a FOB with the silver logo and it could not be reprogramed - we need to have someone else who can try the same thing to rule out the possibility you have a damaged FOB.
