Panic button of a 2001 Highlander, won't turn off horn or lights

I heard the horn going off while I was in the garage and grabbed the keys and hit the panic button, nothing. So I disconnected the battery.

What can I do?

What the hell is a panic button


Hi Martin Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

Martin, the panic button on your key fob is only used to find your vehicle should you forget where you parked it and panic because you may have to call a cab. When you hit the panic button it will continually sound your horn until you hit the button again. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair website and check out my satisfied customer testimonials. http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Why would the anti-theft alarm go off?


Factory alarms rarely false alert, maybe someone did tamper with the car and ran off before you saw him. The one thing that will often trip alarms is a bad battery in the car, have it tested. Your car may have an add-on alarm in which case anything goofy can happen. It's odd that you had to hit the panic button to shut the alarm off, but if it functions normally otherwise it's unlikely to need a new battery. Is it at all possible that you hit the panic button and that caused the alarm to sound? If it was in your purse or pocket maybe it got pressed in which case it might be normal for you to have to hit panic again to turn it off.

Can panic button stop car from starting?


If you set your panic button off it will use juice from your battery to sound the horn and lights if you don't realize it is going off over a period of time it will drain your battery causing the car not to start

2002 chevy mailbu horn wont turn off.


you may have sett off the panic button on your key chain that caused the car to go into panic mode for the computer. i have had this happen with my old 2000 malibu one suggestion i would say is to try pressing the panic button a few times to see if that is engaging or may disengage the system.
how ever thats if it is related to the panic mode of your car.
other solutions is buy a new horn or horn relay
you may have a short in the horn that could also be making it go off continually. if you are still having trouble see a chevy dealer shop and talk with them about your issue.

Heard a faint clicking under the dash.......then while driving heard what sounded like the locks trying to lock after 15 miles of driving....got home half an hour later and when put in park locks did not...


check the battery in key, check wiring harness to relays behind dash. I think you have a bad relay or connection or button on your key is sticking. Worst case is having shop diagnose system so you can repair.

Horn doesn't work in car but does work with key fob


Your horn inop problem is in the rotating contact for the horn connection underneath the steering wheel, it is called the clock-spring contact by us techs because that is what it looks like, if you do replace it yourself then you must disarm the airbag or serious injury can result.
