Since the new Camry models have this anti theft system which shuts down the engine if stolen, would installing any random alarm system not given from the dealer possibly interfere with that system?

Sep 12, 2007 (9:29 pm)
So I purchased a 2008 base model 2008 Camry without keyless entry. But I didn't realize that would miss keyless so much. I see that the security system is in the car. Can I just purchase the key fobs off of ebay and program it to the car?

No. The only security thing that is in the car now is the engine immobilizer system, so you would need to add keyless (about $200 aftermarket).
#68 of 120 1999 Camry Alarm System

I have a 1999 Camry with an alarm system. I don't know if it is aftermarket or OEM. It goes off every time we open the car, or walk by it. We have to use the keyless entry to turn it off. I have been told to turn down the sensitivity on the sensor. If this is true, where can I locate the sensor?
#69 of 120 Toyota Camry CE Keyless Entry

One thing to know for the CE Camry buyers (the cheapest Camry) if you plan on saving $1500 bucks by not getting the LE, don't plan on installing your own keyless entry system... (the only difference between CE and LE is the keyless entry system and power seat controls) - Toyota has PURPOSELY wired the CE so bad that you won't be able to install a keyless entry system yourself. I brought my new 08 camry to best buy and the tech was able to install a viper keyless entry system for me - BUT the lights do not flash on and off when you lock/unlock nor does the horn work when you click alert. Nor does the trunk unlock when clicking AUX. It only locks and unlocks. Nothing else. The tech at BestBuy told me everything was wired backwards and if he made it so that it would flash the lights, it would have short circuited the electronics system.
Looks like Toyota has the last laugh - and they purposelly did that to screw over anybody who wants a good deal.

My daughter lost her alarm FOB and I purchased a new one on E-bay. Can I program/sinc this new FOB to the current alarm? If so, are there instructions somewhere on the net?

I purchased key fobs from ebay fro my 2006 corolla. They came with programming instructions. If your model of Camry is anything like my corolla you will have to get the instructions. You won't believe what is involved in programming, it's very simple but there is no way you can know how to do it without the instructions. You may be able to buy them online or you can take it to a dealer.
#72 of 120 new key programming

I'm trying to get another key for my camry. The dealer wants $350 for it which is outrageous. Luckily you can get a new blank key for $80 at ebay but it doens't come with programming instruction. Does any one have info on that?

There are two types of keys that will work on your Camry LE, the key with the integrated keyfob, and the valet key. Both of these keys have an integrated security chip in them, and must be programmed to work with the security/starting system. You can have up to 4 keys configured to work with your vehicle.
If you get a key blank without the security chip, your car will not start/run.
The non-keyfob valet type key blank, can be cut to be either a valet key(unlocks door and starts car), or a main key (unlocks everything including trunk, and starts car). Again, it has an integrated security chip. You are given one of these with the new vehicle.
The integrated keyfob is cut to be a main key. You are given two of these with the new vehicle. The integrated security chip is configured to work with the security system, the keyfob is configured to work with the door lock/unlock.
So 3 of the available 4 keys are currently issued to you with the new car. You can only add one more key. If you want, you could eliminate the valet key, and buy 2 keyfob type keys to have a total of 4 keyfob keys.
The dealer will charge you for a blank(two diferent prices, depending if it is a non-keyfob valet type key, or a keyfob), they will charge you labor for a.) cutting the key, to either the valet or main key, b.)programming the security (required for either type key), and c.) for the lock/unlock keyfob programming (if the key bought is an integrated keyfob).

The dealer wants $600 and sad It's possible.
