Question about 1992 Toyota Camry V6

1 Answer

Have a Toyota Camry 2003 and the alarm has been going off in the middle of the night when it gets cold out. Any idea how to fix this so I don't disturb my neighbors. I've had to sleep with the remote next to the bed to shut it off as soon as it goes off.

    I have a 2003 Sportivo also that has lived in a garage all of its life in Brisbane. Now it lives in Townsville and outdoors. The alarm has gone off virtually once a day since we recieved it. I'm not convinced of what is setting it off but I can assure you that my neighbourhood is getting quiet annoyed as I am. Any ideas would be appreciated before I take the wire cutters to it.

I have just had my Toyota Dealer solve this very same problem. I purchased a 2003 Toyota Camry second hand. A great car, except for the car alarm going off when the temperature dropped outside at night. Neighbours were not impressed. The problem was in a electrical relay that talks to the ‘Body Control Module’ (damn computers in cars). This is part of the car electrics that controls things like 'auto lights off' when you lock the car, 'power windows' after you switch off the ignition, 'central locking' and a few other important things like 'interior light auto off' (so you don’t flatten your battery if you accidently leave it on). The faulty relay cost me $450 to replace, including labour, but everything works great now and most importantly, no car alarm at night. I cannot guarantee that yours is the same problem but my best advice is to take the to a Toyota dealership and get one of their mechanics to test it properly (they plug your car into a test piece of equipment that can check it properly). Shouldn’t cost you any more than $100 to find the fault and to get a quote to get it fixed properly with a guarantee.

Alarm goes off when it is cold outside (low 30's-So Calif)


When batteries get cold they loose voltage.
The car alarm probably thinks someone is tampering with the vehicle.
Check car battery and alarm backup battery for poor functionality and replace.

2004 camry ac light blinking and throws hot air. Suggestions?


My 2003 Toyota Camry AC often starts blowing hot air and the AC light starts blinking. I don't know why the following process works, but it does. Using the temp selector (left) reduce the temperature all the way down to Max Cold and then push the Auto button. It will start blowing out very cold air. After a little while push the temp selector to the desired temperature.

It's cold outside and our alarm keeps going off, when we try to start our car and the car will not start?


1994 Toyota Camry is not equipped by the manufacturer with an alarm system. The only suggestion I have is to remove the aftermaket stuff from your vehicle.

2003 Toyota Camry - Both Brake lights not working


Lok in the trunk on the left side, behind the carpet for a small plastic box with a bunch of wires going to it. Look to see if there is brake light powe coming in with the pedal depressed. If so, and no power is coming out, you need to order and replace the "taillamp failure sensor".

1998 Toyota Camry car alarm keeps going off.


I have this same crazy problem with my Camry. When you push the button then open the door on the driver side really quick, the alarm starts to blow off. So what I used to do everytime is push the button to unlock all the doors then open whichever door you want. It won't scream. Try it.
