My Corolla has it right under the steering wheel, it flashes blue when armed. Your Avalon probably has the same, but.."where" the system is is not just one place, if it all part of the ignition system and not in one place

Your key, the ICM, and other things are all part of it


I am trying to find brand name so I can see if I can get remote. I'm looking for main box.

maybe CAAR ot KAAR I forget if they spelled it with a 'K'


Good morning I found out what I have a Rostra model APSR 1723 K899. Do you think I can found remote for this? Thanks

I looked around and no luck, at http://en.allexperts.com/q/Car-Alarms.html, there was a very rude answer, I am not suggesting you go to that site, on the contrary, he just said "I don't give out my expert knowledge for free" I only put that web address up to say don't waste your time on it if you run across it searching, the dude has an attitude. Still looking, I have not given up but it's getting frustrating, should not be difficult to find that remote
