Question about 2002 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

My 2002 Toyota 4 runner does not want to start. The battery seems to be working because the horn keeps beeping and the light from the security system keeps clicking on and off. I tried deactivating the security system and it does not seem to be working.

Problem starting

What they did was upgrade the system here try this its from Kia.
Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position.
4. Transmitter Programming Procedure:
1. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position. Do not start the engine.
2. Locate the "disarm/programming" button which is secured to the remote start wire harness behind the left lower dash panel.
3. Press and hold the "disarm/programming" button for 10-15 seconds until the horn beeps 3 times.
4. Release the "disarm" programming button.
5. Press the red Find/Panic button on the remote start transmitter one time. The horn will beep one time indicating that the transmitter code has been learned. Repeat for each additional transmitter.
6. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position.
5. Function Check:
Refer to the vehicle specific "Remote Engine Start" installation instructions for a complete list of functions to be verified before delivering the vehicle.

Alarm malfunction

Are we talking about an aftermarket alarm system? If so, remove the entire system from the vehicle. (they are usually more trouble than they are worth.)

1994 Toyota 4 Runner with dead battery: Using + to + and neg. to ground connections, while trying to recharge battery, the horn sounds when the negative cable is attached to vehicle ground. What is...

Hello. Welcome to FIxYa. Please allow me to assist you. It appears that you might have a factory alarm system on this vehicle. Try cycling the key in the ignition from lock to on (not to start) 5 times. This procedure is built into the factory system if the battery in the remote goes dead, or if the remote gets lost. One note, however.This procedure will only work on the Factory system. If you have an aftermarket system fitted, this trick will not work.

My 2001 Kia Sephia suddenly won't start.

even if your starter is out it would still click when you tried starting the car. so try replacing your battery first thats the most common problem for random starting. also look under the car you may need to jack it up. look under the intake manifold that is where the starter is check to see that everything is hooked correctly and that all the bolts are tightend securley and not loose on one side.

2002 Toyota 4-runner unlocking itself over and over.

i think that your dc motor incharge of opening and closing the door is still fed by voltage somehow , you should check the fuse that you are removing if it is the right one , after that you should see a spcialist . check the wiring .

Do you have a "Security" light anywhere on the dash? If so, when you change the battery, this activates the security feature. Try this: Cycle the key in the ignition on-off 5 times. This will deactivate the security system (if you do indeed have the Toyota system) Hope this works for you.
