How to Disable the Alarm in a 2000 Toyota Tundra

by Kelly Reese

The Toyota Tundra has a factory alarm that acts as a deterrent to protect your vehicle from burglary. The lights flash and the horn sounds when someone tries to break in the vehicle or start the vehicle without the programmed key for the vehicle. You can activate and deactivate with the programmed key for the vehicle, the remote for the vehicle or by pressing the valet button. You can refer to the owner's manual for further information about the alarm.

Keyless Remote

Insert the key into the ignition. Turn the key to the "ON" position. If the alarm still sounds, lock and unlock the doors.

Press the "Lock" button on the driver door panel. Press the "Unlock" button on the driver door panel. If the alarm still sounds, disable the panic on the remote.

Press and hold the "Panic" button on the vehicle remote control for two seconds to disable the alarm.

Valet Switch

Disable the alarm by pressing the valet switch if you do not have the remote to the vehicle.

Insert the vehicle key in the ignition. Turn the key clockwise to the "Run" position.

Look on the steering wheel casing under the steering wheel towards the pedals. Locate the button installed on the steering wheel casing under the steering wheel.

Press the button in to turn on the valet mode. This mode stops the alarm from sounding.

Tip

  • Contact a certified Toyota dealer to get a replacement remote for your Toyota Tundra.
