Locked key in 96 toyota t-100 and lost remote..after I pop door open how do I turn off alarm ?
I locked key in truck like always do since have remote and then
today my keychain w remote took a swim. Key is in ignition still. I
can unlock it w a coat hanger but I know alarm will sound how do I
shut it off quickly. I know from past experience when reached thru
window and unlocked it that turning key in igniton dont work. That
time I had to run into house and get remote... any help appreciated
so I dont wake up all my neighbors in morning..
Your in a no win situation..either you suffer or they suffer ... They can go back to sleep a lot easier then you can walk home
the alarm will turn off as soon as you turn the key
Turning key on does not shut alarm off ive already tried that...
My answer was based on a Factory installed alarm ... starting your car has always turned off a factory alarm ... but I see your car is a 96 and I'm not sure it has a factory installed alarm .... if it doesn't then the only thing you can do is once you have entry ... pop the hood and disconnect the battery ,,, then disconnect the alarm (what ever is the quickest)
OK it was along time ago, On my '95 T100 I got in (alarm going crazy) found and flipped the micro switch -should be under the edge of the dash, drivers side. The switch is for a "valet" setting so they can drive you truck WO the fob. Now that the switch is flipped, you should be able to turn off the ignition, wait a few seconds ( blissful silence) then turn on the ignition and -fingers crossed -drive off without the alarm screeching and making you feel like a doofus (your not a doofus just a guy tryin' to get by- I know that).
