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.

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.
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.
that means you have an aftermarket alarm previously installed have it remove from the car or try to find the swtch under the dash to unarm the alarm manually
all you have to do is locate the swtch and whit the ignition on turn the swicch ones and that's it the switch must to be small some where under the dash but if you can't find it just have some autorepair remove your ald alarm system
