does anyone know the procedure to eliminate the beeping when you use the lock/unlock button on the remote?

I've searched a bit and can't find it.
I can't handle 4 beeps to unlock all doors anymore, it's driving me crazy.

09 DC 3 button remote

That's odd. My '07 doesn't beep at all. It only flashes the lights. I'm so glad it's that way too. I had a Pontiac G6 rental car a few weeks ago and it beeped whenever you pushed a remote button. I felt like such an ass every time I locked the doors.

If there is an easy answer to this, please someone post it. Mine is like this too, and when I want to unlock the passenger side first (because I'm a gentleman) I have to press the button two or three times in a row, causing a beeping fiasco. Thanks in advance.

Toyota calls the beeping an "answer-back" function. It's new for 2009 on the Tacoma; other Toyota models have had it for a long time.

Here's how you toggle the answer-back beep off and on for the factory keyless entry (not Toyota's VIP alarm add-ons) on 2009+ Tacoma models:

1. Open the driver's door, and insert the key into the ignition. Leave the door open.
2. Remove the key from the ignition, and within 5 seconds, re-insert the key and then turn the ignition to ON.
3. Wait at least 10 seconds, but less than 20 seconds. After waiting, press a button on the remote twice. Press the same button two times - don't press two different buttons. The system will acknowledge with a beep if you did it right.

Toyota's instructions for this sort of thing are very literal and must be followed EXACTLY. It's helpful to use the flashing ":" symbol in the clock to count the seconds in step 3.

If you disconnect the battery, the setting will return to the factory default setting of ON.

this post is kinda funny. People use to complain. My self included beacuase we were never sure if the doors locked on older years. We actually paid money for a moduel that made the "beeping"

I simply unplugged the piezo buzzer from the wiring harness. If you pop your hood, you can find it between the battery and the radiator area. I only bought the truck Monday, and it was pretty much the first thing I did!

Amen.

IMO it's a really nice feature that you don't miss until it's not there.

There have been many many times that I thought I locked my truck, but even though i could lock it from across the parking lot, I couldn't see the lights to make sure. I had to walk back track to a place where I could see the lights to make sure...... what a pain...... :headbang:

But not any more. :thumbsup: I did the Piezo mod and it works great.

The nice thing is if you DO forget to lock your truck, it locks itself after 30 seconds or so.

this procedure works well. Turns off all beeps, lock and unlock. It would be cool to have the beep for the lock so when you're walking away you hear the lock beep happen, and when you unlock, like walking to your car in a parking lot, there would be no beep.
I'm happy though, no beeps, and no four beeps just to unlock all the doors in the middle of the night.

I did loose a FOB two weeks ago, thats two accidents (minor) and a lost fob in less than a thousand miles. It's cursed I think. Good thing it's a work truck and was cheap. (relatively)

Do I understand correctly? There is no way to make a 05 access cab 4wd non-TRD give beep feedback? I miss that from other vehicles i have had. Dont see anything in owners manual. Would like to have a feedback "beep".
Thanks for help.:headbang:
