Question about 2009 Toyota Corolla
Just bought a 2009 corolla LE sedan (second hand). The remote was working for the first week. But it now stops working. It doesn't lock/unlock the doors (keyless not working, key itself still opens the door, of course...), nor does it start the car. Wondering what's the reason. The red light on the key still flashes when I push the buttons. So I figure it's not the battery's problem. Since it can't ignite the engine, I assume it's not the receiver that's broken either. Am I wrong on any of these conclusions? If it's not a battery or receiver issue, what could possibly be wrong with the key? If you have any other suggestions, please feel free to tell me too.
Replace the battery. The light just means there is enough charge to light the LED.

First thing I would do is to get a chassis lube job. Many places that do oil changes will also do a chassis lube for you at the same time. The axle bearings can get dry and do require lubrication. If left to long without a lube job, pits can form inside the bearing and will require replacement.

Testimonial: "Common sense solution provided which hopefully alleviates major problems & was actually the potential solution I was anticipating, so like affirmation"
the actuator might have been disconnected from the lock, its attached inside the door, with a metal rod that clips into the actuator, check it out, might be a easy fix, good luck and god bless, please rate me!

I am having the SAME problem with my 99 Corolla, Still searching for a way to disable the factory security system, for the last two years I have the vehicle hotwired through the headlights to start it. (1 wire to battery positive, 1 wire to starter hot lead, touch them together.) unfortunately this has proven very dangerous as the vehicle will start even in gear, and take off without a driver. additionally, because the alarm is going off continuously, the battery dies if not disconnected after every use. I found the fuse in the relay box that disbles the alarm, and the car starts fine, unfortunately, It it also the fuse for the alternator, so that solution will not work either. If anyone has found true way to disable the system, PLEASE offer your suggestions!

look around the car on each door, you will see a small black switch on which the door shuts on. This switch when open brings on the light and bell. Go around and check by pushing each one of these in. This should stop the light/chime. It works on what is called an open circuit, if you check each of the sensors and the problem persists, then one of the sensors may be faulty or their is a broken wire somewhere in the circuit. For the mean time to stop your battery going flat, remove the interior light globe.
