Question about Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Hi, My back window will now go up or down with the key and it will not go down with the remote. The car chirps when you press the remote but thats it. The back window works fine from the dashboard though. also the sunroof does not auto open or auto close, you have to hold the button the whole time the sunroof is moving. Both of these problems happened at the same time.

How do I get my alarm system to chirp instead of beep when it goes off or when I lock my doors with the remote entry key fob?

Check to see if your vehicle honks when you press the "lock" button on your key fob. Press the "lock" button multiple times in a row. Many devices won't beep unless you double-tap the button after locking. If the horn doesn't honk, but the lights flash, your chirp feature is probably disabled.

Use your keyless fob and ignition key to enable the audible chirp. The process varies considerably on different makes and models. You must usually consult your owner's manual, a dealership or the alarm manufacturer for the correct process.

Avital is one brand of remote starter that features easy-to-use keyless remotes. These remotes can be programmed wirelessly to your engine and then added to your keychain. Once programmed, you will be able to use the remote from as far as a couple hundred feet away in your house, the street or a parking lot. If your remote is not working, you can troubleshoot the remote and get it resynced in seconds.
  • Enter your caricon1.png, leave your driver's door open and insert your key into the ignition.
  • 2 Turn the ignition to the "On" position and press and release the "Valet" button on your remote.
  • Press and hold the "Valet" switch again after releasing the first time and wait for the system's siren to chirp and the LED lighticon1.png to blink.

  • 4 Continue holding the "Valet" button and then press the starter button on your remote.
  • 5 Wait for another chirp and release both buttons to complete the process.

    I have a 1996 3.8 liter camaro. I was driving my car down the road when the gages started jumping and i found out that problem it was the battery and aldernater well after i changed them problems i have...

    Hmmm, a puzzle.

    The only way to disarm these alarms is with
    the factory remote or turning on the ignition.
    To turn off the factory alarm.

    Ok, do you have the remotes?
    If so, let's ID the system.
    Go to & use th fcc #s
    on the back of it.

    If not try this:

    Programming Factory Security on GM Cars and Trucks
    Instructions for programming the GM factory security systems that do NOT
    disarm from the driver's door key cylinder. This programming is for the
    cars and trucks listed below.

    96+ Camaro
    96+ Firebird
    99+ GM Trucks
    99+ GM Sport Utility Vehicles

    Step #1 Turn the ignition on then off.

    Step #2 Remove the radio fuse only (not the fuse that says acc/radio).

    Step #3 Turn the key to the accessory position. When you do this you
    will get two chirps from the door buzzer. Should you hear only
    one chirp, your vehicle does not have factory security and these
    instructions do not apply. You need to hear two chirps.

    Step #4 Press the unlock switch on the door. This will give 1-4 chirps
    depending on the program step. Continue pressing the unlock
    switch until you get to the desired chirp setting.
    1 Chirp - Security off
    2 Chirps - Remote Only
    3 Chirps - Factory Setting
    4 Chirps - Passive Arming

    Step #5 Turn the ignition off.

    Step #6 Put radio fuse back in.

    How to reset a anti theif system on a 2004 explorer

    This is the procedure that I know of using you the keypad on your drivers door:
    1. Close and lock all doors, windows and tailgate
    2. Enter your 5 digit entry code
    3. Press hold hold the 7-8 key. While holding the 7-8 key press the 3-4 key
    4. Release the 3-4 key
    5. Release the 7-8 key
    You should hear a horn"chirp" to let you know the system has been disabled or a "chirp" followed by a "honk" to let you know the system has been enabled.
    I hope this is the information you were looking for and that it helped. There is a way to use your remote key fob and if you need that procedure post a comment on here and I should recieve an email letting me know, I think I remember that one as well....Good luck.

    Jaguar xJ6 X300 The electric seat has stopped working . I can hear the two relays clicking on the left hand side of the driver chair so assume the fuse is ok . Any ideas on how to fix it .?

    the motors stick ( freeze ) i have heard that disconect the battery for an hour helps with this,and you may need to reprogram everything after..

    Open the boot lid and drivers door, and switch on the ignition. Rock the valet switch, in the centre console, 5 times. The system will chirp to indicate it has entered learning mode.

    On models with seat/mirror/steering wheel memory functions, the first remote will be linked to memory 1, second to memory 2 etc.

    Press the larger, lock, button of the remote. The system will chirp to confirm it has got the signal. If it doesn't receive any signals for 15 seconds, it will chirp twice and exit learn mode.

    To programme further remotes, rock the valet switch once. The system will chirp twice for remote number two, three times for number three etc, then press the lock button of the remote as above.

    When finish, wait 15 seconds for the system to time out and chirp twice, turn off the ignition, close the doors and boot lid and the job is done!

    Program remote

    The horn chirp can be disable by pressing the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously until the hazard lights flash, and no enable press the lock and unlock until the horn chirp.
    To reprogram (enter new ID) key fob (keyless remote controller) follow the steps.
    1. Close all doors and lock all doors
    2. Insert and remove the key from the ignition key cylinder more than six times within 10 seconds. (The hazard warning lamp will then flash.) NOTE: Key should be withdrawn from ignition key cylinder completely each time.
    NOTE: Do not rush the insertion/removal key cycling process. The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is accurately completed.
    3. Insert key on ignition key cylinder and turn ignition key switch to "AAC" position At this time, the new ID code is entered and original (previous) ID codes are erase.
    4. Press any button on the new remote controller once. (The hazard warning lamp will then 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. The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is accurately completed and programming is successful.
    If there is only one remote controller skip step 5.
    5. Additional ID code entry Release the door lock, then lock again with door lock/unlock switch (In power window main switch)
    6. Remove key from ignition
    7. Unlock driver side door, open driver side door and then close the door. (END)

    I put in a new battery and the alarm remote does not work

    Couple of times when you replace the remote battery, you might have them not working/ responding but just follow the procedure below.

    Stand close to the car, hold down the open and close knobs for about 10 seconds. Press them at the same time for 3 seconds; then press the open button as the car opens.

    The above procedure is applicable to a lot of car brands. It does not matter how many knobs you might have on the remote fob.

    I have carried this procedure out on a lot of brands ranging from Honda, Toyota, Rover, Ford, etc. and it works perfectly well.

    Good luck and Rate this.

    I bought a new Keyless remote for a 2007 Forester from a Subaru Dealer to replace an original one that went bad after 2 years. I have followed the directions in the owner's manual to program it, but can't...

    IMPREZA: 2005, 2006, 2007 and
    FORESTER: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Check for Immobilizer key on Forester XT models only.
    information is always subject to change and correction imp05keylessremote1.jpg
    new remote for 2005 Imprezas.
    This is not the same remote as the 05 Legacy/Outback remote which also has truck/gate release on the front and a red panic button on the back.
    Lock: press Lock button for 2 seconds or so to lock car, and arm optional security system. The car with chirp once and turn signals flash for locked, 5 short chirps and signal flashes if any door is not fully closed. The dome light goes on for 15 seconds and ignition key ring (if present) will light for 30 seconds when unlocked.
    Unlock: press unlock one time for driver's door, press again within 5 seconds to unlock all doors inkling rear gate (wagon). The system does not open the trunk.
    Panic mode: press and hold lock button for approx. 3-4 seconds to activate Panic mode. I panic model the horn honks and turn signals flash until either the lock or unlock button is pushed again.
    Finder mode: Press lock button 3 times within 5 seconds to activate Vehicle Finder mode. The horn will honk once and the turn signals will flash 3 times
    Distance: works within approx. 30 feet depending on battery strength, nearby concrete walls and etc.
    Audible Chirp On-Off: the system will chirp when locked or unlocked. To turn OFF the chirps, unlock the door and then push both lock and unlock buttons at the exact same time for 2+ seconds. There will be 2 chirps indicating the the audible is off. To turn the chirp back on, repeat the process and the system will chirp one time when it is back on.
    Battery: as the battery ages it will only work as you get closer to the car. When a battery is replaced, the transmitter must be re-synchronized with the Keyless control unit. To synchronize, press the lock or unlock button 6 times.
    Programming: 4 codes may be programmed.
    Sit in driver's seat and unlock all doors. Open and close the driver's door
    Turn the ignition key from LOCK to ON position 10 times within 15 seconds. Be sure to stop at both lock and on. The horn will HONK once to indicate transmitter programming mode is activated. Leave key in LOCK position and don't remove it from ignition.
    You now have 45 seconds to complete the programming as below.
    Open and close driver's door again.
    Push either lock or unlock button on the remote you want to program. The horn will honk 2 times when successful.
    To continue and program other remotes at the same time: open and close the driver's door and push lock or unlock on the remote. The driver's door must be opened and closed between each remote you want to program.
    Done programming? remove the key from the ignition and the horn will honk 3 times.
    DELETE old codes? Reprogram 4 times, it will overwrite old codes.
    Alarm Security System: optional on all models. When locked there is one chirp (can be turned off, see above), the turn signals will flash and the red 'security' light will start to flash once every 2 seconds except for STi which flashes twice every 2 seconds.
    There will be 5 chirps if a door, hood, and trunk or gate is not fully closed
    You can also arm the system by using the power lock button on the driver or passenger door as you get out of the car and then closing the door behind you.
    Disarm the system: push unlock for 2 seconds
    Lost remote, alarm activated? When you can't use a remote to turn off the system: open the door with a key or try to start the car and the horn will start to honk. Turn the key on-off 3 times within 5 seconds and the alarm will go off and you can start the car. It's simple!
    VALET mode: To set valet mode or just to disable the security alarm system: 1. unlock all doors 2. physically open the driver's door 3. hold the UNLOCK button on remote for 2+ seconds. The red 'security' light will then flash 2 times a second until the car is turned on.
    System has been Tripped (except for STi): if you unlock the door with the remote and it chirps the signal light flash 4 times, the system has been triggered;
    Identification mode: To find out what happened and why the system was triggered:
    Open and drivers door, leave it open. Turn ignition key from LOCK to ON 2 times and then leave in LOCK position.
    Tripped code: 1 security light flash: a door has been opened, 3 flashes when the impact sensor was triggered, 4 flashes when the ignition was messed with or battery disconnected

    I want to turn off factory installed alarm in 1999 Ford Taurus SHO but where is the switch located?

    Hi there. As far as the valet/overide button, it's a hidden
    device-switch, a little spring loaded micro button,
    red or black possibly and is probably down under
    the dash area, near your knee/leg. In some
    remote start/alarm combos, the antenna on the window
    glass will also have an override/valet button.
    Older sytems will have a flip type toggle switch.

    When you locate the button or switch,
    turn on the ignition key, press and hold
    in the button until the alarm chirps 1 time
    (for toggle types, key on, flip switch in the
    opposite direction, then key off). This should over ride the system. You would get a single chirp to confirm from the siren.
    The LED (light emiting diode) light in the dash
    should also go on solid. This is valet/overide/reset.
    This should correct any issues like starter disable,
    or anti-hijack. Your keyless entry, if installed,
    will still be operable. The have it inspected for the
    falsing issues you are experience at a local shop.
    You would repeat the same steps to toggle back into user mode.
