Hello and welcome to just answer, and allowing me to assist you. sorry to hear about your problem but with your help maybe we can isolate the problem. You said you have a remote starter? Is it factory or after market?
Yes a bad remote starter or theft deterrent especially aftermarket is a common problem we ru into often if not ill installed the mogul shorts out, they usually cause more problems then good down the road.unfortunately if it's aftermarket without a wiring schematic it can be tricky for the layman to disconnect so I recommend take it to a service center or dealer to do so. Taking it out wrong can do more harm so be careful.hope this sheds some light on your problem.
sure, do you have any extra fobs that don't look like original Toyota fobs if so it's after market.
If you don't have any extra fobs just pull the kick panel off on the driver'sside under dash area that's where they usually hide the wire mess.
The remote starter wiring will passably be under the steering column cover plate. if not then it's probably factory installed.
The modal is behind the glove box but the wires run behind the dash and I don't think you want to go there , I would recommend a shop job. can you send a picture ofthe wiring under the steering column especially the connectors/ BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE YOU HAVE TO DISCONNECT THE UNIT AND RECONNECT THE ORIGINAL WIRE S BACK TOGETHER. iF YOU DO IT WRONG YOU CAN DAMAGE OTHER COMPONENTS.
HERE IS THE PICTURE OF THE MODULE.
OK regardless the wiring for the remote starter will be spliced into the ingnitio wiring so thats where you have to look and dissconect.
