Question about 1996 Toyota Camry

Open Question

How do I re-arm an amx alarm system for my '96 Toyota Camry

My battery died over the weekend when I was out of town. I replaced my battery and now my alarm does not work. I tried to reset it using all the codes from my AMX alarm manual and the system just wouldn't turn on or respond to the number of flicks I am supposed to do after I turn on the car.
I will appreciate your help.

The computer for the alarm is probably causing your problem. Scan the anti theft module to trouble shoot for the problem. You might have a door sensor that is shorted.

Just unlocking the car with the key turns the alarm off.

Try taking the car to an Audi dealer to reprogram the key.In some cases,depending on the country it was imported from ,it may take several attempts at programming to get it right.Your Audi dealer should do this at no charge.As for removing the battery,always clamp an alternate 12v source to the car cables so the vehicle does not lose a 12v source when changing batteries.These are complicated cars.You need to recode some systems after total loss of 12v.Once again the dealers will help.

If the alarm is a "factory" alarm, cycle the key in the ignition from off to on (where the dash indicators light up), 5 times. This is the reset proceedure for the "factory" alarm.

Forget about the alarm . The problem is your trying to jump start a dead battery. Replace the battery and reset the cpu with a code reader and the problem should be solved.

Is there any thing I can do to get my theft light to stop blinking plus my 2002 nav want start help help stick out of town


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. The alarm is what is causing the vehicle to not start. You may be able to pull the fuse for the alarm to get it started. There should be a code that can be entered to reset the alarm. Check your owner manual. If not, you may have to contact the dealership to get the code to reset the alarm. Try not to use your key fob to unlock the doors as this will only keep the alarm on. I doubt anything else is wrong with the vehicle. The security alarm will kill the vehicle and cause this. If the fuse doesn't work, you need that code. You may be able to take off the hot side battery post for a few minutes and reset everything. Once you do, don't use the key fob for nothing.

How do you locate the reset of car alarm on 1999 lincoln town car after replacing car battery? I just replaced the car battery on town car and cannot start vehicle. Checked maintenance book, but very vague...


Do you not have the key fob to disarm it? try unlocking and locking the car doors multiple times manually, including the trunk but the drivers door should hopefully reset the system

Starting Problems


This may or may not help. Hopefully it will. We recently purchased this 1998 chrysler town & country. Everything was working fine, started fine, etc. we took it to get emissions done.....passed emissions.. .made it home. i turned the car off to run inside for a minute. came back out car started.. ran for 3 seconds than died out. tried again... ran for 3 seconds than died out... after that it no longer would do anything. all the lights worked except in the ignition module. the top dashboard lights worked though. I then noticed that the "alarm set" light stayed lit. after replacing fuses and running an OBD test and found no trouble codes or issues with fuses it dawned on me it may be the alarm. after searching the internet for hours i found a forum that suggested unplugging the battery for about 5 minutes....rehook it and then try starting it again. well i tried doing that the first time using the REMOTE to unlock the doors and nothing happened. i locked the doors and repeated the same battery unhook-rehook process except without using the remote... (i noticed a lot of forums saying that the remotes can be deffective in that they somehow trigger the alarm if the transmitter is not working properly as well as the fact that chrysler has issues with their anti-theft systems and if the alarm is set than it will act as a kill switch not allowing your ignition to work).. so after unhooking and rehooking the battery and using only the key to unlock it started right up! so i've decided to not use the remote at all and have had no other problems. let me know if this helps

My battery died after recharging it the alarm buttom needs to be reset. I need to know where the reset buttom is


HI ! I haven' t researched your car for you just yet !

I thought Id quickly mention the common method for reprogramming your alarm & remote, If you still require assistance then just ask me and I will find more about your car :)

Common Methods for resetting/re-learning code

  • Factory Fitted Alarms/ Central Locking / remote comes on ignition key.

Insert ignition key , turn key to accessories / red , press & hold lock/unlock for a few secs.remove key,exit vehicle and try un/lock doors &/or alarm (Some models differ slightly & require engine on or manual use of door locks whilst resetting.

  • Aftermarket /Non-Factory / remote is separately operated
Most use a small back-up battery usually located within the loudspeaker/Alarm unit itself under the bonnet,
Remove this battery for a short period to reset the remote code


The access panel for the backup battery is never in an obvious place. look carefully :)
