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

I had to replace my main 120amp fuse. Is there any other fuses that would blow if you crossed battery cables.


worse case scenario: you could have fried the ecu / ecm

anything electrical is effected; had a neighbor's car whole front end wiring to his headlight system got fried/melted together
do you have access to an obd2 scanner and plug it in to check?

in hindsight, this is one of the reasons why calling AAA for a jumpbox is better than having someone hook up jumper cables incorrectly ~ most also will connect the cables directly to the dead car's battery terminals when you're really supposed to connect it to "engine ground"

once you gave it a look over all the electrical wiring and fuses, time bo bite the bullet and take it to the shop ~ sadly

The obvious first place bto check is fuses and / or circuit breakers. Look in your owner's manual as it should have that information. It will also show you how to tell if a fuse is blown.

1981 Cressida fuel pump wiring problem


If it was my car, I'd fasten down the jumper wire making sure it had a fuse in it and drive the car that way. A piece of wire and fuse holder will be a lot cheaper than fixing whatever is under the hood that isn't switching on. Just be sure that everything works before you make it permanent. Hope this helps.
