Toyota MR2 MK3 - Bing Bing Bing alert!
submitted by Chantal Roberts on 22/07/2009
I just recently purchased an MR2 MK3 2000. It makes a bing bing bing alert at ad hoc times ( or so it appears). It is when I am driving. The doors are closed, the handbrake is not slightly on, both seatbelts are done up. It is HUGELY annoying! There are no warning lights on the dash when this happens and it is nothing to do with the radio aI have turn it off just to try to eliminate any eventuality - please help!

Toyota MR2 MK2 N/A - Alarm goes off when you unlock the car
submitted by Alex Bowyer on 01/12/2008
We just had a problem where we unlocked the car (using the remote) and the Alarm went off (and wouldn't be turned off via remote or the funny push-on fork attachment). The car then wouldn't start, instead making a fast loud clicking sound. The manual (which says nothing about the immobiliser/alarm) suggested that it couldn't be a battery problem since all lights, radio etc seemed to work. Other posts here suggested maybe a problem with the key fob. However we tried a jump start and it started first time. Looks like the battery may be a bit old/worn out. Will try an overnight charge via our mains charger - and if problems persist we'll get the battery changed. Hope this helps others in same boat.

Toyota MR2 MK2 N/A - Car alarm
submitted by Phil Bridges on 07/09/2008
I got some water into my car alarm and it would stop. We have located the alarm and tried to disconnect the alarm battery but after 2 days it is still chirruping like a canary. Any ideas of how to stop it?

Toyota MR2 MK2 N/A - Chirruping alarm from rear
submitted by Debs on 19/05/2008
Recently had new alternator fitted(under warrnanty as last one clapped out!) and has been OK. but today drove short distance and when i stopped the car there was a really odd alarm type thing coming from near to the ariel on rear of car. Don't know when it started as i had radio on. ariel has never worked properly. Went off shortly after but when i drove home, wondering if it was safe, parked up and all was quiet. several hours later the same noise could be heard for short time then it stopped. Totally flumoxed!! Help/advice would be much appreciated

Toyota MR2 MK2 N/A - MR2 MK2 Immobiliser Problem
submitted by Chris Walton on 04/05/2008
I have fitted a new sterio. All my electrics work fine except the immobiliser. It seems to be confused and permantly 'on' or cutting in preventing me from starting the engine. I haven't rewired anything, just unplugged one sterio and plugged the new one in. There are no blown fuses anywhere either. Is there a way of resetting the immobiliser? Please can someone HELP asap! Cheers.

submitted by shaun t on 28/04/2008
my alarm was going off constantly and the remote wasnt turning it off. after replacing the battery in the fob it still didnt work. to make peace with neighbours was forced to disconnect the battery to stop the alarm going off. it seemed the battery was dead so i replaced it and that seemed to do the trick... first time it started no problem, next day the car unlocked but wouldnt start. now every time i press the alarm key it sets the alarm off. anyone have any ideas? help would be appreciated

Toyota MR2 MK2 N/A - infra-red key fob battery keeps draining down in 2 days !
submitted by james heath on 25/09/2005
i have recently bought an mr2 91 model, and have had to disconnect the alarm/immobilizer that's under the drivers dash - by some fuses, because they key fob battery is drained. the red light on the fob only comes on when i press the button, so i don't think its constantly on. Therefore, I've disconnected the 3 wires that go into the alarm/immob box and now I have to get into the car just using a key. The system is therefore not active. Where do I start? Anyone had a similar problem?

Toyota MR2 MK2 N/A - Alarm siren not sounding
submitted by J Leahy on 25/05/2004
I have just bought a 97 Mk2 MR2 - but have since discovered that the siren does not sound when the alarm is activated. It has a factory fitted TVSS III. The sensors seems to work correctly, and the hazards flash but no siren. Can anyone tell me exactly where the siren is located so that I can check the connections. I've had little luck on Google - some suggest somewhere in engine bay - two Toyota garages suggest under a front wing but weren't sure!

Toyota MR2 MK2 Turbo - Alarm
submitted by Claire Morris on 09/06/2003
Toyota MR2 2.0 Turbo T-bar Alarm on MR2 keeps going off. Once you leave the car it keeps going off all day. If I leave the car open the immoliser kicks in and the car automatically locks its self and the alarm still starts going off. It seems to stop if I take the roof off and lock from the inside. Not very practical though hey!!! Hope you can help and maybe tell me where I can get the problem fixed. I live in the West Midlands.
