Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Car alarm won't disactivate

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry and the car alarm won't become unarmed, which prevents me from turning the car on. I've taken the terminals off the battery and tried to reset the alarm by turning the key 5 times. I've tried the valet override. I can't think of anything else that might help.

    I have this same problem with my 1999 Camry LE. I do not drive it often and recently tried to jump the car and the panic alarm would NOT STOP until I took the jumper cables off of the car. This is the first time this has happened to me.

Charged battery on 1997 Toyota Camry now immobilizer will not lock doors and car will not start


Here is the reset procedure:
1. Have the Valet Button in the OUT position. ( It is located on the dash panel left of the steering column)
2. Connect the battery - the alarm will sound.
3. Put the key in the ignition and turn to the ON position,
4. Push the Valet Button to the IN position.
The alarm will be reset, and the Valet Button will glow red.

Move the Valet Button to the OUT position again.
Repeat steps 3 & 4 and the Valet Button will become unlighted.
The car will start and everything will be fine.

Toyota Camry 1994 No ignition think it may be alarm


disconnect the alarm system from under the dash.battery to starter direct will turn the engine over fine but ignition system still runs through your alarm system.It's also a theft prevent system so your car will not be stolen.The alarm went bad preventing your car from starting.That means putting the ignition wiring back to factory.
