When I submitted my question your site it detailed a person who would provide the answer. I can't remember his name but it was an expert from the UK TV programme Scrapheap Challenge. What happened to him then?
Also, I have received a reply from Just Answer offering me 25% off my next question. Do you really think I will be using Just Answer ever again?
What you should do now is continue trying to find an answer to my query and refund my £15 in full as a gesture of good faith.
If you do this, I may use the service again, providing I get a satisfactory answer.
I stll need an answer because my car is still sitting on my drive with the battery disconnected.
Please stop asking me if I want to close my question. It seems to me that you would prefer me to do that as a simple question has caused you such difficulties. Is this what you do to all awkward queries? If so then your site may as well be shut down.
Have you thought of asking Toyota help? The knowledge is out there. You just need to provide the service I have paid fulfil the boasts made on your site.
Why can't your expert find out the answer from other sources. Being experts they should know where to look or who to ask.
Yes I have. That is the one I replaced the battery in.
I have found this solution in the Toyota Owner's Club Forum Online. I have tried it all but it still doesn't work.
I am almost at the stage when I will have to take the car to a Toyota garage and be charged stupid money simple job.
The key fob was showing signs of trouble. I sometimes had to press the lock button several times to lock the car.
Then, one day, the alarm went off while in my drive. I was at work but my wife said that she tried to disable it with the unlock button. It wouldn't disarm. She couldn't open the door either so she unlocked the door with the key.
The central locking does still work.
We had to disconnect the battery to stop the siren. when I do this, a clicking is heard few seconds.
When I reconnect the battery, the alarm sounds straightaway. If I close the doors and the bonnet the alarm stops but is still set. The little red lights on the dash and under the handbrake still flash.
When I follow the scenario given to you with my attachment, the alarm stops sounding and I can drive the car. The red lights are solid and as soon as I open the door the alarm sounds when I switch off the engine.
One thing I haven't tried yet is to recharge the main car battery. I'll do that tomorrow when I have time.
I changed the battery on the spare key hoping that it was a battery problem. Both key fobs show a light when either button is pressed.
I have had the RAC out to the car and he has done step one right beside the siren. No result.
