2007 Toyota Camry - anti-theft system disabled fuel pump after changing alternator/battery

Asked by Dec 02, 2014 at 05:31 PM about the 2007 Toyota Camry XLE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Changed alternator and battery, but mechanic has told me the anti-theft system has
disabled the fuel pump, which will not allow the car to turn over when starting.  It turns on
and cranks, but will not turn over.  Does anybody know how to turn off the anti-theft
system?  Called toyota, and they want me to pay to have it towed there and then
evaluated for several days, I can't afford to do this.  Please help.

Husband just tried whats shown in the video - didn't work. The car is presenting the same exact problem as that echo though.


Sorry about that

Thank you for helping...


Hope this helps ~~~ If you replace the battery, the alarm system will be activated and you will not be able to start the car again until the alarm has been disabled. There is a simple fix for this that will allow you to turn the alarm off and start your car again without using the keyless remote. Difficulty: Easy Instructions 1 Insert the key in the ignition. 2 Turn the key quickly from the "Run" position to the "Off" position five times. 3 Turn the key to the "Start" position and start the car. This will disable the alarm and allow you to start the car again.
