Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
Causes my car to be completely dead -- won't start, no lights on the dash or overhead. after car sits for a while, open the door and the alarm goes off. then car will start. next time, wouldn't start, raised hood and "touched" the plastic cover on battery terminal and alarm, and car started! Hornet system was installed by sears on 2001 Toyota about 7 years ago. Help!!
You must see if the wires and break , use the continuity tester VOM, for repair or replace the wires. However you must tight the wires or clean from oxide, or corrosion and try again.
If you can NOT fix it. Go to the repair shop.
God bless you

first, you need to manuslly disarm the alarm. open driver's door, put key in ignition, turn on ignition, an then within 10 seconds push the valet/program button for a couple of seconds. (it is the little spring loaded push button that they installed with your system. probably in the kick panel or under dash

Generally there are two types of factory ignition key security types one creates a circuit when you put and turn the key(these generally have a chrome nipple on them which creates the contact)and the other type is an approximity type(most common)if its the approximity type you can test this by trying to start the car(with the remote) and hold the ignition key as close to the ignition barrel as possible, if this works let me know and i;ll pass on the next step.If not you may need a bypass module.please provide more details about the car and the alarm.(model etc)

Your system may be in valet. Open any door, press lock button on transmitter, press aux, press lock again. If your alarm was in valet, it's now active, if it was active, it's now in valet. Hopefully, this was the issue and nothing is wrong with your siren.

The seven flashes of the parking lights when you attempt to remote start is the tach signal not being programmed. If you hooked up the tach wire already, turn the ignition on, press and release the programming switch three times. Turn the key off, press and hold the programming switch and start the car. Continue to hold the programming switch while the vehicle runs. The parking lights will be flashing while the tach is being programming. Hold for at least 15 seconds for a good signal. This allows the engine to "smooth out" into a normal idle rpm.
If the parking lights are not flashing, the tach is not being programmed. You may have skipped a step during the set up for the programming or, you have the wrong tach wire. If you went to a injector or coil wire, it is the uncommon wire. This means that there exists two or three wires at the injectors/coil packs. One or two of the wires are the same color at all of the injectors/coil packs and one wire is a different color at each injector/coil pack.
