    Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
    I just recently bought my car asked the sales man if my car comes with an alarm system he said it didn’t. He also told me they send the car to a third party to install one (viper alarm). I know the dealer charges a lot when it comes to installing alarms but I was wondering if I could go out and...
  5. Changing alarm armed beep

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    We bought a 2016 Toyota Corolla recently and love it. One thing I'd like to change is the beep that the car makes when arming locking the car/arming the alarm. Has anyone upgraded that on their Corolla? Some cars beep the horn which would be a good solution if that is doable. Any ideas? :)
  6. Toyota Echo/Vitz/Early Yaris alarm system

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Hello. I just recently purchased an 05 Echo RS without keyless entry. I believe this was an option that almost no-one ever purchased back in the day. None the less, it is a feature I dearly desire. So, I was wondering if I could maybe tear off an old system from a junk yard Camry or Corolla and...
  7. Removed factory alarm system - still won't start

    Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I was having intermittent starting issues with my 2005 Toyota Corolla. We thought it might be an issue with the alarm system. My son thought it was an after-market alarm and removed it. Traced the wires and removed the module box and all the wires attached to it. The connections were all...

    Hello, I just purchased a brand new 2018 Toyota Camry SE that came off the lot with a KARR series 3 HP-Green alarm system.

    Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    I have a 2005 Highlander and my handyman for my rentals uses it when he does my house repairs. Today he called and said it wouldn't start so I thought it was the battery since it's been so cold and it's not my daily driver. 10 minutes later he called and said it magically started. So 2 hours...

    Land Cruiser Forum
    I have a 2003 Land Cruiser. It was working normally until last week. Now when I turn the key to start, the car alarm (factory) comes on, and the engine does not crank. I replaced the battery this morning, and that did not help. My neighbors are more than annoyed with me :) Any ideas on how to...

    I just bought a 97 Corolla CE with alarm system. I believe it is a factory installed system, with a little red light mounted in a small removable dash panel, to the left of the steering wheel. I was given one key with the car, which unlocked the doors and started the car. It is a simple metal...

    2005 Corolla LE with factory alarm. The alarm has been randomly beeping rapidly-similar to the shock senor warning. It still locks/unlocks fine, it's just this random beeping. Can happen at any time, but it seems to be happening more often. Any ideas?

    Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Does anybody know how this works?

Please tell me if this is true? I...
  19. Alarm Needed?

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    Is there a need to install an alarm on the 2016 Corolla? Or any newer car in general. The dealer will enable the existing built-in alarm for about $1000 (too much for me). I was thinking about getting an aftermarket alarm like a basic Viper 3105, which is about $350 installed. The Corolla...
