Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. Recently, the security alarm malfunctioned, blaring the alarm and the remote control on the keys wont deactivate the system even after changing the batteries on them. I recently changed the battery and the alarm just wont stop, I can't start the car and can't get the engine to start, thus prompting my parking the car somewhere far from known professional help. Please I'll greatly appreciate your kind advice.

You need to reset the alarm by inserting the reset key(small plastic devise with visible contactors that should be with the keys) for a few seconds in the it's hole in the right-hand rear speaker. Open the boot look at the underside of the rear right-hand speaker to locate the hole.

I had the same problem. I removed the relays from the fusebox under the bonnet/hood (top left side) and then replaced them. All working OK now. Sometimes I have had a problem when I start the car (especially after rainy day) the petrol engine immediately dies and I can only drive in electric. I have found that if I turn the ignition off and then restart it and immediately pump the accelerator it makes the engine run OK. Hope this helps.

Look under the driver side seat for a black box, with several wires going to it. This is the controller for the security system. Please do NOT unplug the wires. You car will NOT start if you do. Advise if the box is there, and I will provide info to disable the system.

SOURCE: 2006 toyota solara, alarm keeps going off

Those cars have a frequency sensor that is attuned to the exact sound frequency of breaking glass. Are there any noises nearby that resemble glass shattering? Wind chimes? Any type of extraneous noise at the freq of glass breakage will set off the alarm.

SOURCE: How do I change the starter in a 2000 Toyota Camry LE

i'm sure it's not the starter itself that is the problem, have the stater's solenoid checked...it might be stucked. It's quite a lot of work removing the starter but you can do it if you are willing enough to learn. You just need the right idea and tools to do it. Hope this will help save you bucks!

SOURCE: 2001 toyota rav4. how do you deactivate the alarm

Followed your recommendation of holding the valet (red) button for 6 seconds. It deactivated the alarm system and I was able to start the vehicle. This solution saved me from buying another key from the dealership (139$) and a programming charge of (100$). And not to mention the time saved from towing the vehicle to the dealership. I can't thank you enough for time and money saved with this valuable service. Will be signing up with your service when I get back from Orlando.

I had to change the battery in my 1999 camry solara. Now the car won't turn over and the factory alarm is blaring. How do I disable the factory alarm? I do not have the original key pad.


this might work...
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.

How do you reset the alarm on a 1999 toyota camry if i dont have the remote locking mechanisim


Operation of the theft deterrent system is discussed in the 1999 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual beginningh on page 21. Unlocking the door with the key should disarm the alarm system. If it does not disarm when using the key, there are only two possibilities:

> You have an aftermarket alarm system installed in addition to the system tht was provided by the manufacturer and they are interfering with each other.

> OR

> Your vehicle needs service to correct the malfunction.

You might try unlocking the car from the passenger side or use the key to open the trunk first to see if this works. If it does, the switch inside the driver door is probably malfunctioning.

Hi,
If you have the Toyota factory alarm, there should be button under the driver's side dash to reset the alarm....Look for it 1st, then read below.

Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking, to the ON position.

Then within 5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the
valet/overide button, found under the
dash area, (push button, spring loaded)
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area goes on solid,
and the siren chirps once.

(Your valet switch might be the toggle
(on/off) type. in this case, key on,
flip switch in opposite direction,
then turn the key off.)

This should reset the alarm, and reset
the grounded relay on the starter wire,
allowing you to start the engine.

At this point, the only thing working would
be the keyless entry from the alarm,
if it came equipped that way.

Just Repeat these steps to place it
back to usable armed mode.
You may get 2 chirps, confirming it,
and the lights may flash twice as well.

GL,
Td

My car wont start and the alarm keeps goin off when i open the door. Can you help me please. for a 1994 toyota Camry


Try disconnecting the battery and putting the key in the ignition and turning it to the "ON" position. Reconnect the battery and the alarm should be deactivated. I'm assuming you don't have the alarm fob? This might be a good time to remove the alarm system.

CAR ALARM DEACTIVATION


if the car only has a factory system, then you only need to insert the key to unlock the door to turn the alarm off. There should be a red light on the door panel that blinks and that should show you it's off, not sure try turning the key on the door twice. If it's aftermarket, get a replacement unit.
