Hi. I also have 1999 Toyota Camry. Replaced battery, followed instructions you gave (disconnecting negative terminal, turning key to "on", left door open, and reconnected battery). Car still won't start, and when I turn ignition off or close the door, the alarm sounds again. 'Now what??

Hello I'm Scott,

I'm not sure what you tried, but I'm sure this is very frustrating. I came up with this procedure that sounds different then what you tried. Keep me posted some I can opt out if it doesn't work. Thank you for using JA.

      Open your Camry's door and sit in the driver's seat.

    • 2

      Locate the kill switch, actually a toggle switch, on your Camry. It is located on the left-hand side of the steering wheel column beneath the dashboard. It will be the only switch on that side beneath the dashboard.

    • 3

      Press the toggle switch in and hold it.

    • 4

      Start the engine on your Camry while you are still depressing this switch.

    • 5

      Listen for an audible beep that will let you know the alarm has been disabled.

    • 6

      Reverse this process to reactivate your alarm.
