This article applies to the Toyota Camry (2007-2011).

Whether you own an aftermarket anti-theft alarm or an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) anti-theft alarm, the truth is you have the option to deactivate your device when you see fit, at your discretion. It"s recommended that you don"t deactivate your alarm for a long period of time, however. Doing so could leave your vehicle susceptible to theft. Once your alarm is deactivated, it will stay that way until you reactivate it again. Reactivation is just as straightforward as deactivation and requires no tools or professional experience.


Step 1 – Access your vehicle

Go ahead and hop into the driver"s seat of your 6th gen Toyota Camry. Keep the door open and unlocked; close all other doors. Insert your key into the ignition, but keep the engine off.

Step 3 – Start the engine on your Camry

Without letting go of the lever, meaning you are still depressing the switch, start the engine on your Camry as you normally would. You will know the alarm has begun the disabling process when you hear a quick chirping sound. One final step is needed.

Step 4 – Turn key to the LOCK position
