#1 of 16 Toyota LC Security System Intermittently Prevents Start
Dec 13, 2006 (7:34 am)
My 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser has, for past few weeks, failed to start intermittently and it appears that the security system is failing to recognize valid key. Dealership has had it on two occasions and failed to rectify. Ruled out keys as problem and focused on electrical. When it occurs, the engine will turn over but not allow to start (fuel injectors?). There is seemingly no pattern to when this problem will occur, but it leaves me with a vehicle I can't rely on. The security light fails to go out when ignition is turned. Any ideas or thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

I had a similar problem in an older corrolla that I had and ended up removing the after market alarm system. If it is factory installed, it maybe tricker.
#5 of 16 Land Cruiser Intermittently Not Cranking
Jan 11, 2007 (6:55 pm)
About once a week my 98 LC won't crank. I put the key in and turn and . . . nothing.
If anyone has had this issue, was it the starter relay, starter, or ignition?

#8 of 16 Security System bypasses front passenger door
Aug 13, 2007 (12:42 pm)
I recently noticed that the front passenger door is being bypassed by the remote locking/unlocking mechanism.
When I get out of the car and press the keyfob to lock the door, all doors are locked besides the front/passenger. When I unlock the doors, same thing.
Right now, I'm locking it by reaching over and locking it before I get out of the car or by walking over and manually using the key to lock it.
Any ideas on if this can be fixed by me or what might be going wrong? Or do I need to take it to the dealership?

I don't think it is. I have no problem starting the vehicle. It's just that one door and coincidentally started happening immediately after I took it to the dealership for an oil change.
