HOW TO TURN OFF THE TRUNK OPEN ALARM



The 2012 Camry's trunk lid has a 'trunk open' alarm that shows up on the instrument panel as 'door open' red icon. It also turns on the door open beeping sound so long as the trunk lid is open. This is normal and is usually not a problem..

However, if you should need to carry a large item in the trunk and can't close the lid, be prepared to listen to the incessant door open sound with no means to turn it off!!

The trunk lid alarm 'switch' is operated by the trunk latch when you open or close the lid. By manually operating the latch to it's closed position, you can temporarily silence the alarm.

Using a small screwdriver, you can easily press the actuator and turn the alarm off.

Picture 1: trunk lid latch in the OPEN (Alarm ON) position.

**WARNING**
YOU MUST RETURN THE ACTUATOR TO THE OPEN POSITION (ABOVE)
(ALARM ON) BEFORE YOU CLOSE THE LID. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY DAMAGE THE LATCHING MECHANISM
**WARNING**

DO THIS WITH THE TRUNK OPEN LEVER OR WITH THE REMOTE TRUNK OPEN BUTTON.

Picture 2: trunk lid latch in the CLOSED (Alarm OFF) position.

IF YOU TRY TO CLOSE THE LID WITH THE LATCH IN THIS POSITION YOU MAY DAMAGE OR BREAK THE LATCHING MECHANISM

I have a 96 vetta and when i tryed to open the car the alarm went off and wont stop... i had to take off the battery cable to shut it up.... every time i try to reconect it... the alarm wont stop...


The reset may work. Try opening your trunk, leave it open, put one key in your driver's door and the other in the ignition (on position) then your buttons on your remote should be able to turn off the car alarm again.

The remote does not disarm the alarm and unlock the doors. Trunk also will not open.


I would say that the problem is the remote. change the batteries in the remote and see if it will work then. if it still will not disarm the car then it could be a problem with the security system itself.
new batteries can be bought at your local RadioShack*,auto parts store,or a auto security intallation shop.

Horn alarm always going off.


The horn alarm usually sounds whenever there is an open circuit being sensed in one of the doors, hood or trunk. It then resets itself after a couple short minutes. The toughest contact to check is the one on the front hood latch. I had to replace thie hood latch in my daughter's 1998 Beetle because of a similar problem, and the fact that it was causing a slow drain on her battery. Very tough to diagnose the slow drain, but it worked. Also check to see if your trunk release is operating both from the driver's door and the keyless remote.

VW Jetta 2003 1.9 TDI trunk does not want to open with remote My Jetta trunk recently started to give me problems without warning. I cannot get the trunk open with the remote. The trunk only opens manually...


If your lock actuator engages (you can hear the sound it makes) with the remote/electric button on the door, but the trunk doesn't open then the problem is likely a broken plastic arm that the electric assembly pushes. You can see it if you unscrew the inside cover from the trunk lid and try the remote. I started having the same issue with VW Jetta 2002 GLS that was rear-ended 8 months ago. My guess is the cracked plastic finally gave out in the cold weather.
