Question about 2004 Lexus RX 330

1 Answer

I WOULD LIKE TO DEACTIVATE MY STEERING COLUMN ( RX 330)

THE POWER FROM THE POWER STEERING COLOMN ACTIVATES MY ( AFTER MARKET) ALARM SYSTEM WHEN I USE THE AUTO START FEATURE. WHEN I USE AUTO START THE STEERING WHEEL ADJUST TO MY PROGRAMED POSITION AND THAT SENDS CURRENT TO THE ALARM WHICH FOOLS THE ALARM INTO THINKING THE CAR WAS TAMPERD WITH AND IT SOUNDS. NOW WHAT I WANT IS THE STEERING WHEEL TO STAY IN ONE POSITION WHEATHER THE SUV IS OFF OR ON.

THANX

The simplest way is to set the wheel where you want it and unplug the motor.
This may cause a Check Engine Light condition - however.
The aftermarket alarm brain can be adjusted for sensitivity as well - or re-located so it does not sense the vibrations of the steering wheel moving.
The current draw is so minimal that its not sensing the voltage drop (car is running anyway) - it doesnt like the vibration of the motor on the steering column.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi.. i can't unlock my Land rover steering locked (Tdi300 pick up) & the key can't turn on too.. please help me to solve this problem, tq..


Be very careful to rock the steering left and right harshly as it would ultimately destroy the pin inside the steering column. Once you've tried that, and it ain't bugging, get ready for stripping steering to the column. Try squirting some oil inside colomn in your key entrance.

How do i disable the anti theft system on a 04 dodge stratus


Not sure if this will work but it did for me. My battery died on my old 01 stratus rt and when I put new battery in my alarm kept going off. So I disconnected battery, both cables and touched them together and reattached them and it worked. I would try that. I will look into bypassing it as I did this when I installed a new alarm system with remote start I just don't have my book in front of me.

Shifter on steering column stuck


You'll have to remove the steering column. There's a few bolts that hold it to the bottom of the dash and a couple that attach it to the steering shaft before it goes through the firewall into the engine compartment. Remove that section of column and towards the bottom of it your find 2 torx screws. Tighten those screws back up and reinstall the column. The screws, in time, work themselves loose and cause this problem.

2000 ford expedition wont start. Had after market alarm disconnected


This truck has a factory security system, why would another one be installed?? There is no way to know where the wiring was tapped into for the aftermarket alarm, so just get under the dash and trace the wires is all That I can suggest, remove the steering column covers to access the switch is necessary..

I can not use my power door lock(no power) when i turn off ign key on 2004 lexus rx330


It could be an alarm programming issue. If you have an aftermarket alarm system check the fuses on the alarm brain, normally the brain is under your drivers dash or drivers side kick panel area, if its a factory alarm then it may be same issue or it could be a power issue with the factory alarm brain, also you may have a power door lock actuator problem, if the actuator is failing then it has to be replaced.

2004 RX 330: intermittent power steering loss, hard to turn, so...


I think you may have a problem with your electric assisted power steering motor. Is the loss in power only when your are making sharp turns to the right or left?
Do you hear any load noises or squeling sounds?
You should have it inspected, Don't want you to lose control while driving.

I lost my keys for toyota celica 1996 year,i had another 2 keys and but without remote,now when i opening door with keys alarm turns on and after that when i startin engine after 1 minutes alarm turns...


Look under the steering column ,now normally on an after market alarm installation ther should be bunsh on wire tied up with plastic zip-ties --looks like a mess , and in that a mess look for a square relay about 1" sq. Unplug that. That will isolate the alarm system.Good Luck

When I lock My 2006 Chevy Aveo with the remote button the alarm activates, then about ten minutes later the alarm sounds. Is there a way to completely deactivate the alarm or reset it ?


i had the same problem with alarm system in 2005 hatchback (5 door), the dealer was no help, found by accident to spray lube oil in rear door handle as it was rusted inside and not releasing properly, thus setting off the alarm, i oiled it several times and the alarm system works fine now.
