20 Most Recent 1998 Toyota Celica Questions & Answers

I found that the 97-99 ST204 Celica uses the same Alpine alarm used by the BMW E23 so I tried the instructions for that and it worked, so if anybody else needs this info here it is

My remote is P/N 08191-00900

1. Close all doors, trunk, and hood.
2. The security system must be in "disarm" mode. The key must be removed from the ignition key slot.

Enter Code-Learning Mode
3. Open the trunk and leave it open.
4. Open the driver's door and sit in the driver's seat.
5. Close the driver's door.
6. Cycle the ignition switch five times between the "off" position and position 2 (ignition "ON", all dash warning lamps will illuminate). The red status LED will illuminate continuously, and the siren will "chirp" once, to indicate that the code-learning mode has been initiated.


The ignition switch cycling in step #6 must be performed within ten seconds.

The sequence in steps #1-6 must be performed within 45 seconds.

Registering/Delete ID Code(s)
7. Open driver's door, (remain seated in driver's seat)
8. Close driver's door.
Edit: an extra step is required here for the Celica- cycle the ignition key once more from off to ignition on then back to off
9. Press and release any button on the remote you wish to register into the system. The status LED will shut off momentarily to indicate that one ID code has been registered.
10. Repeat steps 7 through 9 to register the remaining three ID codes.

Exiting Code-Learning Mode
11. Open driver's door, and exit from vehicle, leaving the door opened.
12. Close trunk.
13. Close driver's door. The LED will turn off and the siren will "chirp" twice.
14. The initialization procedure is now completed, test all remotes to confirm operation

Make sure the alternator is producing the rated amperage. One or two blown diodes inside the alternator will reduce its output. Test for a draw. You do this by taking off a battery cable and using a multimeter set to measure current connect it to the battery cable and then to the battery post. Now start removing one fuse at a time while observing the current draw until it stops. Whatever circuit that the fuse controlled is the problem.

That would depend on the sales contract. If you bought the car "as-is" with no written warranty, the dealer is not legally responsible.
You could always ask for help in paying for the repairs.
