Question about 1999 Toyota Camry Solara

2 Answers

I OWN A 1999 TOYOTA SOLARA, SIX CYLINDER. WHEN I OPENED THE DRIVER'S SIDE DOOR, THE HORN BEGAN TO BEEP. I INSERTED MY KEY INTO THE IGNITION SWITCH AND TURNED IT ON, THE HORN STOPPED BEEPING. THE HORN BLEW WHEN I DEPRESSED IT, THE RADIO WORKED, THE A/C WORKED AND THE DASHBOARD INDICATORS WORKED, BUT THE CAR WOULD NOT START. WHEN I RAISED THE HOOD, THE HORN BEGAN TO BEEP AGAIN. I INSTALLED A NEW BATTERY, WHICH GAVE THE SAME SYMPTOMS.

    i DON'T HAVE A REMOTE UNIT OR AN ALARM CONTROLLING KEY, I JUST WANT TO GET RID OF THAT BLEEPING ALARM HORN. I HAVE DROPPED THE DOOR TO THE CAR POCKET AND DISCONNECTED A COUPLE OF CONNECTORS WITHOUT SUCCESS. IF DISCONNECTING THE IMMOBILISER WILL ELIMINATE THE ALARM SYSTEM, FINE. WHAT DOES THE IMMOBILISER LOOK LIKE???

    Thank you very much, your information solved the problem. The alarm system is an after-market type,
    and there is a button under the dash on the driver's side. I inserted the key in the ignition
    switch turned the switch to the on position, depressed the alarm bypass button, and the problem
    went away. -HIGHLY APPRECIATED--

Ok I just got wind of your problem and did not get much info on the case so please be patient as we will probably have to repeat a few steps that other have already asked you to do, but I have no choice so that i know exactly what i'm dealing with. In many cases, alarm systems that start to beep when you open the hood are not company installed. Although company (or factory) installed and dealer installed are not the same thing, as dealer installed will be an aftermarket alarm that was just installed by the dealer when they received you car, and was not installed when they were fabricating the vehicule in the factory. If this is the case, or if the alarm was installed by a jobber, then you are in luck as you will usually not have to take the dash apart to solve the problem at least temporarily. In the event of an aftermarket alarm system, the unit itself will be located under the dash on the driver side and will be visible without taking anything except the black plastic cover above the pedals, if any on your model. Locate the unit and look at the wires coming out of it. There should one wire that will be a bit smaller then the rest, usually it's a black wire, and it will usually seem to sorta go no where, or at least not follow the rest of the wires too much. At the end of that wire should be a bypass switch for the alarm system, allowing you to turn it on and off to your liking. If it is a company alarm/anti-theft system and it is located behind the glove box, then to get the glove box off on most toyotas i've worked with, you only need to open the glove box fully and pry both sides at the upper most point of the glove box inward to get the "snaps" on each side to stop blocking the glove box from going further down, and then unsnap the bottom hinges of the glove box from the plastic pins that allow them to rotate. Then the whole thing comes out and you have full access. In rare cases you will have about 2 screws holding it in place but it is mostly common on older models and mostly north american cars. As for what the immobilizer unit looks like if it is a company model, that i do not know yet, but i will scrounge up what info i can get from the net and if all else fails i will go ask my friends at toyota, i own a 2005 toyota echo (yaris or vitz in any other country besides canada) so i already know the guys at the dealer pretty well. But i can at least tell you that if it is located behing the glove box, it will surely be close to or a part of the ECU assembly, which just looks like a big sheet metal box with about 30-40 wires coming out of it in 2 or 3 seperate connections. So I will just give you this info to chew on for now, and if you have time, please write a comment back to let me know if you know or not if it's an aftermarket or company alarm system, and if it is aftermarket, please try to give me the brand and model number, but sometimes the units have no stickers or number or anything, so if you don't see anything written on the unit, do not fret, just try to get it loose enough to get a good view of it and snap a picture of the unit to send it to me. You can just add it to your comment easily, and with most units i get a good idea of what model and brand it is just by looking at it. So if you can send me all that info if possible to help me scrounge up some info for you and help you as best as i can, i would apreciate it. And if all else fails, then we will go through some of the ways that you can use to bypass the key depending on model (basically if you have a chipped key with a transponder or if you have just a normal old school key) and use the starter directly without need to go further then just the on position with the key (IE not needed to turn the key to start to use the starter). Hope this helps for now, and hope to get news soon so i can start gathering the right info for you problem.

You need to disable the alarm with the remote, or unhook the immobiliser located behind the glove box.

Or reset key code by following these steps below.

1 - insert your key in the ignition key cylinder. (do not turn the ignition on)

2 - (within 15 seconds) depress and release the acceleration pedal 5 times.

3 - (within 20 seconds) depress and release the brake pedal 6 times and remove the key from the ignition key cylinder.

4 - (within 10 seconds) insert a new key (or your original key) back into the key cylinder.

5 - (withing 10 seconds) depress and release the acceleration pedal 1 time. Watch to see if the security indicator blinks.

6 - after 60 seconds, your key is programmed or remove the key or depress the brake pedal within 10 seconds after you depress and release the acceleration pedal 1 time as instruction #5 says.

7 - your key is now programmed again.

You can also program additional keys with these same instructions. All you have to do is to remove the 1st key and insert a new key within 10 seconds of the re-programming of your key and start with #4 and continue down to #6.

I tried to program a new fob for a 1999 Altima. And nothing worked





1.   Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2.   Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3.   Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4.   Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.

5.   If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6.   Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.




Make sure you have the right fob for your car.

Headlights stay on, ignition turned off


If you turn car off and remove key from ignition, th? headlights will stay on until you open the driver side door, its part of an auto on headlight system. you can leave your selector light switch on the headlight position or on the daylight lamp relay (DRL) position. and open the driver side door and the lights will go out and not stay on. so it saves running your battery down. That feature is only on SLE trim line on the Solara.
