Toyota Camry Security System, Remote Start and Keyless Entry Questions



  • I have camry LE, 98 model. I see a red button on dash board and the seller told me that it is for security (keyless entry) system. I wish to buy a remote but don't know which one to buy ? how to choose? how to find out which remote will work for my car?
  • like i stated i have a 99 toyota camry, and I have a 3.0 v6 le. I want to put an exhaust system on my car. I dont want to buy an exhaust kit. I want to buy a Flow master, Magna Flow or Borla muffler preferably Borla. I am going to buy 2 1/2in pipes from the catylitic converter back. I was wondering just buying a muffler if there is a particular size, style etc that would work best.

    Also, If I put on new muffler from cat back and new pipes. Would you have to replace the stock catalytic converter.

    Lastly, do they make any type of headers for the my car.

    I recently bought a 2005 Camry Standard Auto and have decided that I would like keyless entry installed. In case anything were to go wrong later down the line, if I were to move, I wanted the part to be made by Toyota so that I could easily get it repaired. Does anyone know if Toyota sells just the remote entry without the alarm? and how much it would cost? Most websites I've found only sell through the 2004 model and don't carry parts for 2005 models. Thank you so much for your response!

    2005 parts for any make and model will be difficult to find on the internet, however, once you go to the dealer they will be able to find it for you, either through a special order or by subletting somebody that they will guarantee for lifetime (for as long as you own the vehicle). So ask your dealer, don't forget to give them you VIN number when you call. and once again call more than one dealer in your area. You'll be surprised they're already carrying parts for the 06 models so you won't have a problem with an 05. Good luck :D

    I purchased a 95 camry few months back and recently the driver side red light (below the mirror adjustment controls) has started blinking. The light keeps on blinking even when i have turned of the engine. Whats the reason for this? Thanks.

    I'm not immediately familiar with this light on the earlier Camrys, but I assume it's the security system light. It's supposed to blink when the engine is turned off and the car is locked. This means the system is armed.
  • Hi, I purchased a 1996 Toyota Camry, 4 cyl, 4 door back in May. I did not realize that it had a theft alarm system until one day I was reading the information on the windows. Under the dash to the left of the driver's side is a toggle switch. However, I have no clue as to how this system works. I took it to the Toyota Dealership in my city and the mechanic told me that if I cut the switch on and the red light is on it means that the system is disarmed. My question is, How can you tell if the system is working or not. I always thought that if the light is on, it means it's working :confuse: . Can somebody please help me? :confuse:

  • Hello,

    I am wondering if there is something on the security system that would shut down power to the car when it was activated. My battery went dead in my camry and when I tried to Jump it, the security system was activated. I eventually got it shut off, but now my poser to the dash( ODO, clock, radio, fan), my power windows and locks and mirrors, all do not work. I am able to get the starter engage, but it will not fire. I am assuming that it all is related, but I do not know what to look for. I assume it is something with the security system and I need to reset it. Can anyone help?

    I just purchased a 1997 Toyota Camry XLE and need to get another keyless entry remote fob. Is there someplace besides a Toyota Dealer (if they are still available) that sells these remotes? If so, any information will be helpful.

  • I just bought an new 2005 Camry LE three weeks ago, it has an keyless remote when I was in the Finance department the sales guy talked me into purchasing an Carbine security system (state of the art) so he says. I never received an owners manual with it, I couldn't get no one to help me with it. I've been back several times and I can't get anyone to help me get an manual, I've called they do not return my calls. I took the Camry to an Alarm Dealer come to find out Toyota put an SILENCER security system Model: 7921P. Can anyone help me out with an Manual and the codes

    On the off chance you just arrived on planet earth and are unfamiliar with the free search service whimsically named, g-o-o-g-l-e, here's the link for the Magnedyne SILENCER Model 7921P.

    I recently acquire a 2007 Camry CE. It doesn't come with a security system so I am looking to install one. Does anyone have a recommendation? Maybe a website I can search? Thanks.

    I just purchased a 2007 Camry SE, and the security system that I am installing this weekend is a Clifford RSX 3.5 w/Remote Start. I have done some extensive research on this issue as well, and came to the conclusion that this was the best car alarm and it works with the new Camry's. On Google just search for Clifford Car Alarms. I hope this is enough information for you. All I need to know now is how does the car pressure indicator work because I have brought 19" custom wheels, but I can't use them unless I can find out what type of device is on the tires to make the sensor go off. Any clue?

    It's a direct sensor system. There is a sensor in each tire, and they must be moved from your old tires.
  • I just got a 1997 Toyota Camry that I've replaced the engine in. We are having major problems with the security system. It like other posters is preventing the car from starting. We can get power to the engine, it just won't fire! I didn't recieve the Keyless entry with the car and I'm not sure if that's what I need to fix this problem?? Is there another way to bypass or deactivate the alarm? Please help me!! :cry:

    Thanks for the reply, I will be switching out my wheels this weekend.
  • Anybody?? Please, I've got to get this car running!

    I have the Automate AM1 installed on my LE I4 07 Camry. Did anyone get this model alarm as well or do you have Automate installed on other cars? It seems everyone has the VIP3200 Plus on there car. I would like to hear some feedback if anyone has it. Is it a good system, does it give problems etc.

    Thanks Much.

    I'm not sure how to help, but I found this on google...

    Seems to have almost the exact problem. Doesn't seem to have a fix, but a short-term solution to disable the device... good luck.
