#9005 of 11428 '97 4Runner Secuikey+
Dec 24, 2003 (3:01 pm)
My recently purchased 97 4Runner SR5 has the aftermarket Securikey+ remote entry / security system installed. The remote is combined with the key and has the FCC# ELVAT6B on the back. Apparently, it is made by Audiovox and installed by Gulf States Distributors in mid-1990's Toyotas.
Unfortunately, I don't have any instructions to tell me how to use it or how to turn off the blaring horn if you open the doors without disarming the system using the remote.
I've searched the 'net for instructions, but can't find any.
Does anyone have the instructions or know where I can find them?

You are very welcome.
I am about to load up my 4Runner with Christmas packages. And with 4 large boxes of canned goods, I will have a couple hundred pounds of gifts and food in the back. The auto leveling air suspension will adjust for the weight and keep the vehicle at the same height. Really a nice feature.
O.K., I'm off to help Santa in my high tech 4Runner sleigh. Ho..Ho..Ho
#9008 of 11428 window tints
Dec 24, 2003 (3:50 pm)
I was wondering if anybody knows what kind of tints( for the front driver & passenger windows) would match the manufacture's tints on the back. I recently had the front windows tinted medium, using a smoked tint. But it doesn't really match. The back tint seems to be more bluish-gray. All the window tinting places around here only have the bronze or smoked films available. The bronze I know will not match. The smoked from the outside it looks o.k.(can tell a little), but from the inside you can really tell the difference.
#9009 of 11428 '04 Runner Sport Edition: Aftermarket DVD Navigation Systems?
Dec 24, 2003 (4:22 pm)
My wife and I just purchased '04 4Runner Sport Edition in Titanium Silver. This will be our 3rd 4Runner.
Did anyone research aftermarket DVD navigation systems for the '04 4Runner?
Please share any installation, use, and operation experiences.
#9010 of 11428 Armor All products
Dec 25, 2003 (11:07 am)
I just got this Armor All gift set for XMas which includes wheel cleaner, tire foam, cleaning wipes, car wash concentrate, auto glass cleaner, and the original solution. I have heard horror stories about Armor All, but I wanted to know for sure if can use these products on my 2004 4Runner.
What can I use to clean the running boards?
Dec 25, 2003 (1:27 pm)
Well of course you can use them, although I believe there are much better (and highly regarded) products available from Zaino, which I use and would recommend.
"Armor All" products for tires and interior vinyl contain silicone-based products which may actually hasten and promote the dessication, oxidation, and eventual cracking of rubber and vinyl. In addition, silicone-based products typically leave an "oily" feeling residue, and when they are applied to the interior of a vehicle (especially the dashboard), they tend to emit water-insoluble vapors that will soon fog and foul the interior glass as well as the lenses covering the instrument gauges. Also, silicone-based vinyl and tire dressings will tend to not only dessicate the rubber or vinyl, but they also tend to attract dust and dirt as a consequence of the oily residue they leave behind. In addition, if a silicone-based tire dressing is applied too heavily to the tires, it will tend to get flung onto the adjacent finish of the vehicle.
In short, silicone-based products can be seductive because they initially impart a good look to vinyl and rubber, but their intermediate and longer term effects are often rather insidious and harmful. Instead, use Zaino products, and rest easy.

I definitely agree with your statements. Armor-all and other similar products do cause some window fogging This can occur naturally in new cars as all the various solvents and adhesives release gasses that can coat the windows. Also,the dark dashboard shows dust pretty easily, but using an Armor-all product practically turns the dash into a dust magnet. I defnitely do not use Armor-all on my 4Runner for these reasons. I have been using various Mequiar's products with pretty good results, but I am curious to try Zaino which has been highly lauded. We'll see
#9014 of 11428 '04 4Runner Limited V8 Questions
Dec 25, 2003 (9:24 pm)
I'm looking at Toyota's website, and have the following questions:
1) The website won't allow me to price out a Limited 4WD V8. Does that mean that configuation is not available in my area (Trenton, NJ)?
2) The e brochure on the website states that the Rear Height Control Air Suspension is not available with the third seat. I'm surprised by that. It seems to me that carrying extra people (and weight) in the third seat would be a primary reason to get the air suspension. Anyone know why you cannot get both options together?
3) The e brocure says that the 6 disc in dash CD changer with 10 speakers is not available with the third seat, but I suspect they mean that the changer is available, but the 10 speakers are not. Am I correct? Is this because the third seat interferes with the placement of the rear speakers?
4) The e brochure says that the sunroof is not available with the third seat. Is this correct? Anyone know why?
5) The e brochure says that Pacific Blue Metallic is not available with the third row seat. Anybody know why?
Thanks in advance for your help.
