Customer Question

My 2000 Tundra activates security alarm (flashing lights and horn honking) . How do I deactivate the alarm ?
JA: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?
Customer: The red light that is located left of the steering wheel and right of the dimmer light knob for the dash lights, initially blinks and then goes to constant illuminated red

Customer: Yes - the only thing I have been able to do has been to remove the fuse listed as "dome" to deactivate alarm. This also interrupts power to dome light and radio. However, on the bright side, the engine starter will engage and the engine runs fine
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I that think that is all
