Customer Question
2002 Tundra-I have an...

2002 Tundra-I have an alarm that drains the battery unless I pull a 20 amp fuse to quiet it. Seems it only happens in rai y weather.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked all the fuses? Do you have a wiring diagram?

Yes. I have not found any blown fuses. I do not have a wiring diagram.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '02 Toyota?

Tundra

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tundra yourself? What have you tried so far?

I found other folks on-line that led me to pull a 20 amp fuse. Otherwise I do not perform my own maintenance.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

If I leave the fuse out overnight, the alarm goes away the next day when I plug the fuse back in.

The system is factory. It is a one-owner truck. I believe it is an RS300.

Ok N/P as I have one thing you can try tomorrow as we have had issues with , is the hood sensor for the alarm. I will in the mean time check our shop manual at work tomorrow and get back to morrow evening with some more info if that's ok.
