How to turn off the alarm manually without any use of a remote control
My husband took my car and took his remote for his Camry and I am trying to remember how to turn the alarm off manually so I can drive the camry without the alarm going off.
Haven't had the remote in ages, and the alarm tends to go off every now and then. Usually just remove one of the battery cables, and it'll work once again. Now, however, it doesn't work, and the car is just parked at my husband's job, and we can't figure out how to turn the car off so that it will drive again.

Operation of the theft deterrent system is discussed in the 1999 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual beginningh on page 21. Unlocking the door with the key should disarm the alarm system. If it does not disarm when using the key, there are only two possibilities:
> You have an aftermarket alarm system installed in addition to the system tht was provided by the manufacturer and they are interfering with each other.
> Your vehicle needs service to correct the malfunction.
You might try unlocking the car from the passenger side or use the key to open the trunk first to see if this works. If it does, the switch inside the driver door is probably malfunctioning.
When you use the key to start the car the alarm will disarm. You can now purchase replacement key fob's from Autozone. They are easy to program and cheaper than the dealer. I would recommend checking ebay as well for a replacement fob.
you can try a couple of things put the key in the drivers door lock manually lock and unlock the door
with it unlocked try starting the car if that doesn't work disconect the battery turn the key on then hook up the battery and try to start it also check your owners manual about the alarm
Look under the driver side seat for a small black box. This is the control for the remote/alarm system. Check to see that it is not wet. Open it up & inspect the circuit board. Are any of the circuits corroded/greenish powder on them? If so, you need to replace this box. Quite a common failure. But, there IS hope. You CAN start the car without the aid of the remote since you lost it. Put the key in the ignition, and, if the lights start flashing, CYCLE the key on-off 5 times. This action will defeat the alarm, and the car will start. This is provided in case the battery in the remote goes dead on you.
