How do I disarm the alarm on my 1996 Toyota Camry. I changed the battery out and now the horn honks, the lights flash and it won't start.

If it is a Factory Alarm:

Disconnect Positive Lead on Battery.
Open Driver Door.
Turn Ignition ON
Reconnect Battery.

If that does Not Dis-Arm:
Let me know, I do Not show that a Factory Alarm was available & it may have been installed at Port or Aftermarket was Installed

It didn't work. You mentioned aftermarket, the red LED indicator light below the steering wheel does not look like factory.
You are Correct. It sounds like it is Aftermarket.
Does the LED press in like a Push Switch? (careful, don't push hard)
Customer: replied 10 years ago.
No it doesnt, just a solid led light.
There should be ( should be )....a Valet Switch. It may be a Toggle Switch or a Push Button (typical) located(usually) near or on the bottom of the Drivers Dash.
If not there look in Glove Box, Console, Ash Tray, Fuse Panel, Coin Tray, etc. This is a Switch that is for the Override.
See if you can locate it

Ok, I found a toggle switch at the bottom of the aftermarket LED light receptacle.


Connect Battery.
Turn Ignition Switch ON
Flip toggle switch, either 1 way or back to where it was
