Disabling factory alarm - green alarm light on dashboard

My daughter has a 1983 Toyota Cressida that came without an owner's manual. She crossed up the jumper cables and fried all the fuses and the
distributor. My mechanic has replaced / fixed everything possible but the
green alarm light is lite up on the dash and the car will not start. He thinks
there might be a factory alarm he needs to disable / reset, something to do
with the computer on the console.

Can you please help us? My daughter is loves her car and misses driving it.

Does the vehicle crank over? if ity does it's probably a fuel cut off switch. it's located in the trunk on either the right or left side of the wheel tubs. you will have to pull the fabric back to see it there should be a reset button on it. keep me posted

82 cressida seized air pump


The pump puts fresh air into your exhaust so the emissions are lower at the tailpipe. If it is driven by it's own belt you can run the car without it. If you have to take an emissions test in the state you live in you will never pass with the AIR pump disconnected.  Be Green and go ahead and install a new one! Thanks for using FixYA.

Fuel filter location for 1983 Cressida


Hello George. Just saw this post and thought I'd answer even though you probably already solved it. I had an 83 with manual tranny--loved that car. I replace the filter twice. It is right under the driver's side floorboard tucked up tight next to the outer frame rail as it inclines up toward the firewall. Hard to work on. David
