SOURCE: toad sterling car alarm lost manual and need stop code.

This worked on my car when the clicker died:

Put the car in valet mode. Disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal. Put the keys in the ignition and turn it as far forward as you can (as though trying to start it) and let it spring back. Reconnect the negative terminal. This should reset the alarm to valet mode. Programming varies from brand to brand. Contact an alarm dealer and they can help reprogram the remote(s).

Broken Sensor Sterling Touch Immobiliser


There are 4 wires going to the touch pad unit which has an LED in it. The unit has 4 pins (or legs) to which the wires must be soldered. As you say, there are two blue wires plus a red and also a black - although as you also correctly observe, only three wires are present (blue, red and black) in the connector at the other end of the loom which plugs into the control module.

The blue simply splits two ways within the loom, and these are earths. The black carries a pulsing voltage to drive the LED, and the red (which should measure a constant 5v on a voltmeter) is an input which senses when a key is touched on the pad.

Use a continuity tester or ohmmeter to establish which of the four pins on the touch unit connects to the CENTRE pin of the touchpad. Solder the RED wire to this pin. (Best to start by putting some heat shrink up the wire as the pins on the touch unit are quite close together and there's not much to stop them touching.)

Again using the continuity tester (or ohmmeter) establish which of the remaining three pins goes to the OUTER ring of the touchpad. To this, solder one of the BLUE wires - it doesn't matter which one. You must however get the wires to the touchpad the correct way around in order for the key to be read.

You're now left with one BLACK and one BLUE wire which drive the LED, and two pins on the unit which have no connections. The LED will only light when you get these the correct way around. You will not do no harm if you connect them the wrong way round - the LED will simply remain unlit.

One you have soldered the BLUE and the BLACK wires in place so the LED is flashing, simply test your work by touching a key on the touchpad. If all is well, the LED will light continuously for a period and it should be possible to start the car.

Lost key


You cannot disable the immobiliser. If it were that easy, any car theif could defeat it by searching the internet. If you dont have any more master keys, you will have to have your local Toyota dealer reseed (reprogram) the immobiliser code, and program new keys for you. It should be about 2 hours labor and cost of keys, but only a dealer can do it. They need to use the Toyota scan tool, and access a Toyota only website with security codes.

Cobra immobiliser key


After ages searching finally found this on the Cobra site.... A8510 KEY PROGRAMING Ensure the immobiliser is disarmed :- 1) Switch the ignition ON and OFF three times then back to the ON position within seven seconds. 2) The LED on the dashboard will light up signaling the unit is in programming mode. 3) Touch an already programmed key onto receptical, the LED will extinguish for one second 4) Repeat step 3 for all other keys (Max of 4 touch keys) 5) To exit programming switch off the ignition key (unit will automatically exit programming after four keys) NOTE :- 1) Programing procedure can only entered with the system disarmed. 2) If all keys have been lost the system will need to be replaced

When you say the Immobiliser is broken... Do you mean the touch key?
The 8510 touch key is prone to the internal contacts failing. If you open the case up and reconnect it then you should be able to disarm the immobiliser
You should have two touch keys so try your spare on first.
Be warned... You will need 1 working touch key to program a spare or the system will lock out and will need replacing

Hope this helps!

As for Sutty

Sounds like the system has lost power if the LED is not flashing. Have you made sure cars the battery is not flat?
