I run a rav and my issue was the alternator, which killed my battery which then hurt my wiring, if u recently did any DIY on your radio deck that wiring is super confusing and caused my alarm to either never stop going off or never go off, check your alternator or if u put in a new stereo deck check the wires

SOURCE: #5 cylinder misfire

I have a corolla and had #4 cylinder misfire also diagnosed at autozone. After changing the spark plugs, problem persisted, along with the same error code, so they recommended changing the spark plug wires, and that is what fixed it. I would have changed the rotor cap too, but was low on dough. Glad that was not the problem.

92 Toyota 4runner truck was running perfectly fine Later in the day went to start and the alarm just started going off and wouldn't turn off. Truck won't start even with keys turned in igniti


The alarm system somehow got activated , this is usually because the battery becomes discharged or disconnected try doing this:
Remove the key from the ignition
disconnect the negative battery terminal
put the key back in and turn to ON
exit the truck and leave door open
reconnect the battery terminal
get in and leave door open, if the alarm horn stays off it should start.

Hi, I have a 1995 Toyota 4runner... That said, I'm


Well if they were able to cut this wire, I am assuming they were able to get into the car? But if your dad can open the hood and take the negative wire cable off of the battery then he can bridge the wire that was cut, hopefully.

He will need a small wire clamp kit that they can get at an AutoZone or Atuo Parts store. After he fixes the wire that was cut, he will need to disconnect the positive wire cable from the battery and then reconnect both of them. that should keep the alarm from going back off, however it may reset the system. Either way if he has the spare remote they should be back in business and can get your care moved and the alarm to work again.

Good Luck!

Check engine light & Slip indicator light on together why?


Both the Check Engine light and the Slip Indicator light on my 2009 Tacoma came on for no apparent reason. The truck has only 34,000 miles on it. After reading blogs on the internet by people having the same problem with their Tacoma, I tried the easiest potential fix first: just tighten the gas cap until it "clicks" and disconnect the positive cable from the battery for about 20 minutes. Bingo, that fixed the problem! Those simple actions saved me a trip to the Toyota dealer and who knows how much in charges by their service department.

I have a 2003 Toyota 4-Runner. The keyless alarm has stopped working on the drivers side door.


On the driver side the actuator is more likely the culprit,the linkage could of come off or the actuator just doesnt work

2004 RAV4 won't turn over, do I need a new battery?


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BATTERY IS DEFECTIVE, LOW BATTERY VOLTAGE WILL TRIGGER THE ALARM SYSTEM. ANY AUTO PARTS STORE LIKE AUTOZONE AND OTHERS WILL TEST THE BATTERY FOR FREE.

2005 Toyota Corolla Car Alarm Problem


you may have to disconnect the battery for a minute or so ,this will reset the alarm. check your remote it does have a battery in it. otherwise you have to look for a fuse somewhere under the dash close to the fuse box.each one is diff. depending if it original toyota or aftermarket alarm.

Won't start after cleaning battery terminals


Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options..
A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm.
B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start.
C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.

ELECTRICAL MISTERY


Here's a first step: Put key in ignition, turn on but do not start car. When dash lights up, the alarm light will flash if it has been triggered. If this alarm light is flashing, you have set off the alarm. Here's how to reset it: Leave key on, and let the thing flash for five minutes or so. Finally it will stop flashing on its own. Now start the car. If it runs ok. Kill it and turn key back on to check if light has stopped its flashing. This may be way off, but that is the reset procedure for alarms on those blazers. Man I've seen a bunch of them in my shop this year!!!
