1999 Toyota Camry LE Security system

Hi guys, I am new here and I have a little problem with my 1999 Camry LE. I see that my Camry comes with a factory Security system that says "Toyota Security", but my dealer disabled them. I didn't see that when I bought it from the dealership. Upon noticing the security system I took it to the dealership. The dealer asked me for $300 to activate the system and being a student I really don't want to spend that valuable $300. Does anyone know how to activate the factory alarm system in 1999 Toyota Camry. Any type of help will be appreciated guys.

Thanks.

I never knew mine came with the security system, until i found this little toggle switch by the driver side kick panel. I flipped this switch and the car chirped. Make sure you have the chipped key (black base) before you activate your system or you wont be able to start your car and the alarm wont shut off til you pull the battery cable off. I found that out at 1AM... Oh also look under the hood and look for the siren mounted on the firewall, that will tell you if you have the security system in your car.

^ Uh. He KNOWS he has the system installed. Do you even know what youre talking about? The OP asked how to activate the alarm.

dhman06, Try searching the gen 3/4 camry forums. There's plenty of threads on activation. Don't worry about the chipped key. If it's a factory system then it's already wired to handle it.

Thanks man, but will you be interested in posting a picture of "siren mounted on the firewall" so that I can compare it to mine. And where can I buy that chipped key (black base)"?

Chipped key = dealer only.

Look for something similar to this under the hood:
