I have been reading that the IIDTool BT is capable of programming key fobs but I do not see it listed as a feature on the Gap Diagnostics website. Can you confirm this is possible for a 2016 RRS L494 with an applicable key fob?

Hello Scott

Key programming is supported but only for some vehicles. This info is located in the user manual. The L494 is not one of them unfortunately.

Cheers

For anyone else trying this, I just added a key on my 2010 RR (I wanted to update to the newer smaller fob). When programming every time I tried to walk through the process to add the key the iidtool software said that the process failed, then randomly after the third failure I looked at how many keys were in the system and it said I had one more than I started with. So I tried out the new key that it said failed and it worked fine, so even if iidtool says adding a key failed, give it a try and maybe it works ok.

I went through the same with my ‘12 RRS with a key I bought off amazon for $70. Between the key and not having to buying and installing lift rods, it pays for itself with just that alone.

I’ve gone ahead and ordered gap iid tool and a programmable key.

it was super simple to get up and running with it and breeze to program the key.

Gap iid is an excellent tool.

Hello friend, I've got it from Lucky LLC but I wouldn't recommend you to use their keys.

It's been 10 months since I have reprogrammed my key but I started to experience all sorts of issues. I ordered 2 keys and not happy with both of them

  1. Key runs out of battery quickly. It supposed to charge itself while in the ignition... but it doesn't do that
  2. You can't replace the battery easily. I tried to do some soldering and I ****ed it up even more.
  3. Sometimes key doesn't work. You need to take it out of the ignition and put it back again. IID tool reads error code related to the key not belonging to the vehicle.

I ended up going back to my original key and purchased a new plastic shell.

If you can find a decent quality key let me know!
