Question about 2001 Toyota Tundra

1 Answer

When we use our key fob to lock the doors, i know we must use the key fob to unlock the doors to avoid the alarm from going off. Recently I parked in a parking garage at an airport (left key fob at home) and left my tundra for several days. I used the inside lock button to lock the doors. Upon my return, I used the key to unlock the door and the alarm sounded. I could not get the alarm to stop sounding unless I locked the truck back and of course i could not crank the truck. If I go back to the truck with the key fob, will I be we able to successfully unlock the doors and crank the truck? Does anything need to be done to reset something so I can open the doors with the key fob and crank the tundra without the alarm sounding?

You should be able to just unlock the door with the key, and even if the alarm is still going of try to start it the key should override the alarm.

What's a 99.5 Jetta?

Anyway, there should be a button battery located in the key fob. Swap that out and you may be able to use it like normal. Another option is for your to try disconnecting the battery. There is a chance this will reset your alarm and you can use your car as normal. Or the alarm will just go off. These things are finicky.

How to turn off the pro alarm


I would start by replacing the FOB. Sounds to like the electronics inside it are bad. The only reason the horns would go off is if you hit the panic button. There is a slight chance the receiver is bad. But Fobs are cheaper to replace than the receivers. If you have two FOBs and they both react the same, then replace the receiver. Or just ditch the system. The keys (in the door locks) should still activate the alarm system.

Car alarm goes off when unlocking door


You will needs to think of it this way. Once you set your alarm it is looking for the corresponding signal to disable itself. That comes from the fob. If you don't use the fob and just use the key, the alarm system is doing its job and alerting you since it has not received the disable command from the fob. Either lock the door with the button when you exit the car if you want to use the key or use the alarm fob. This will also happen if you use the car manufacturers fob to unlock the car if you have locked it with the alarm manufacturers fob.

Hope that helps - I have hidden all of my original car fobs to help alleviate this problem!

I don't see where you have any choice but to unlock the doors with your key. If your fobs have good batteries, then the problem is with the alarm system, which can't be accessed until you unlock the doors. I'm not sure what the procedure is on your particular alarm, but with most alarms, you disarm the system by first turning the key in the door lock to the left and then to the right to unlock the door. Turning the key to the left first, disarms the system. Some aftermarket alarms will have a button hidden under the driver side dash that will disarm the alarm.

Jag S-Type -intermitent fault where the remote fob does not work


This does not sound like a fob fault - but a locking control module fault , either in the hardware or software of the unit. Get it checked at a Jaguar dealers. When unlocking using the key - as soon as the door is opened you should hear a chime sounding inside the car - this is a timer counting down to sounding the alarm. If you put your key in the ignition as soon as you open the door the alarm should not go off and the chime should stop. If it does not this again points to a fault in the locking controller.
hope this helps - good luck.

1999 volkswagen passat car alarm factory installed system


Do you have a key fob? Unlock the car with that and you should be OK. My sons Elantra is the same way, you can only get in with the fob. I guess the car thinks it's being stolen otherwise. If you don't have a fob, I'm no help
