The OBDSTAR 30 pin cable allows us to make Toyota 4A and 8A-BA proximity without pin code. So we don’t need to pay for the pin code from 3d party. It is not only compatible with OBDSTAR tools, but also Autel MaxiIM IM508/IM608 series.
The 30 pin cable was tested on the new Grand Highlander, Tundra, BZX4, Prius and Lexus NX450H+ 2023, all working fine.
This is a 2023 BZ4X electric model with 8A-BA proximity and new TMLF19 Toyota smart box. Here shows how to add a spare key using IM508+ OBDSTAR 30 pin cable.
Left: factory key, right: New key
Autel has some instructions in the tool basically use the G-box and tap into CAN high and CAN Low in plug.
But 30 pin cable make it much easier.
Pops off this panel on the little side.
There is really only one 10 millimeter screw holding that panel.
We are going to use little 30 pin cable.
Pop airbag out. airbag drops out 30 pin plug.
Under the layout that is the 30 pin plug.
Connect 30 pin cable to 30pin plug and the other end from the car.
That’s all this thing is doing.
After connect 30 pin cable, go to im508 IMMo function, auto detect, it reads VIN and picked it up as a 2023 BZ4X.
Select Control Unit->Keyless System (CAN)
Select Backup IMMO Data
The function is used to back up eeprom data of the smart box which can be used to perform IMMO related functions without PIN.
Generally speaking we gotta we should be shutting the ignition off while we’re reading that data
Read and then save IMMO data
Select Add key function
- PIN verification
- Key learning
Upload immo data just read to read PIN
If failed to read PIN, try several times until succeed
Then add smart key
Add smart key successfully, test the new key.
Take the battery out of remote make sure the emergency start works as well.
That’s it 2023 year model, 2024 is no different and Autel im508 can handle the 24 no problem.
