Customer Question
Daughter's 1999 Camry LE left...
Daughter's 1999 Camry LE left her stranded. I cleaned posts & terminals thoroughly. Battery fairly new, car lights up well, windows go up and down without a problem. Alarm constantly going on and off. Car does not crank up at all. I looked up u-tube & now realize it's not the starter, it's the alarm that is not allowing vehicle to start. We do not have an owner's manual. I would like instructions on how to permanently deactivate the alarm. Please provide me with a diagram or photo of where the alarm fuse is located. Thank you.

Hey how are you

Unfortunately Joseph ,there is no way to by pass the alarm

Click on link this to view pdf file on how system works, there is no fuse or relay to pull out that deactivate and KEEP THE CAR RUNNING .

the way to fix is to have it scanned with Factory scanner or equivalent to retrieve anti theft module fault codes and based on these fault codes ,we pull up a pin point test and be accurate to what is failing in the system ,a lot of parts involved here

Now I would check all fuses with a test light in case one or more fuses are blown that will make the system trigger that you can do , buy no fuse or relay to deactivate the system permanently , it will need to see all the system pass at turn of the switch to on or start or the computer will not let start up, no power to starter and no fuel injector pulse

Please let me know if you can view the files or no

Thank You
