How to Use T-Ninja 1000


What's in the Kit


The key, in general, is used to start the car’s engine, while the remote control can open and close the vehicle’s door remotely. The key contains an electronic anti-theft chip that must be programmed. Some models will perform the remote matching automatically after the key is matched. Other makes (such as Toyota or FCA-equipped vehicles) require users to match the key and the remote control separately.

That varies according to each vehicle brand. For example, a lost key will automatically be invalid for some Ford models if a new key is matched.

That varies according to each vehicle brand. However, your T-Ninja 1000 can read the vehicle’s information and indicate the maximum number of keys that can be matched.

Here are some ways to fix this issue:

1. Try another USB slot or restart the PC;

2. Try to use another USB cable;

3. Remove the tool’s SD card, insert it again, and then try to connect it to the PC;
