I am trying to disarm my car alarm. We bought the car used, and there are no remote keys. We have to start the engine within 10 seconds of opening a door or the alarm goes off. I have been searching the internet forever to find how to disarm it. There have been many suggestions to push a valet button or toggle switch underneath the dash. I haven't been able to locate a button or switch. Any suggestions??

Have you checked the owner's manual, online at toyota.com if you don't have the paper copy?

It very well may be an aftermarket unit, with components located...wherever.

my 97 does not do that - thank god! the only time i've set mine off is when i opened the hood, which i purposely left unlatched, after driving to the parts store... and once a friend stayed in the car then opened his door, setting it off.

i dunno how any other years (i have a 97) work but it would seem unreasonable, in the extreme, to give a driver only 10 seconds to start the car!
