Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
My battery on the 1997 Camry went dead. I re-charged the battery, but the theft deterrent system was activated preventing the ability to start the car. I cannot determine the method for disabling this theft system. I have no remote control key. Please advise how to in-activate the theft system that will permit the starter to work!

This is for acura but it cant hurt to try it...
Open hood ensure new battery is disconnected.
Open main fuse panel cover under hood and remove horn relay (so you don't have to listen to the horn).
Use the key to lock the drivers door.
Connect the positive battery terminal.
Connect the negative battery terminal (security system will now activate, hazards lights will flash and horn would be going off if the relay was not removed).
Use the key to unlock the drivers door.
Get in, close drivers door.
Use the key to start the engine.
Security system will deactivate.
Get out of vehicle, reinstall horn relay, replace fuse panel cover, close hood.

What makes you think it's the security system.
1. Check if you are getting a spark, by using a spare spark plug in one of the plug leads, laid on the side of the engine?
2. If not: a. check distributer cap and rptor arm are OK.
Let me know the answers

sorry this is a dealer fix. but it could be as simple as programing a new key.
or it may need a new imoblizer module.
