Does anyone know what is in these devices, what the power source is and
most importantly, how to get into the little suckers. My wife's (Year
2000, 1.6L petrol stationwagon) bleeper died last night, necessitating
a rescue, and without the bleeper, the car is a dead duck.
Everything else is OK as my spare bleeper worked, but I'd like to get
the other one working.
What's in there ?.
cheers

Clearly a problem that is unlikely to affect you Phil.
After all you neither drive or own a car.

Um...If you're talking about the remote for the central locking I wouldn't
have thought the car would be useless without it?????? But to be honest I
thought a bleeper was a thing that covered up swearing in radio / TV
programmes.
For what its worth I have a 2003 Corolla and the key fob for the central
locking comes apart very easily, just drop it on the ground about 150 times.

Thanks, James - unfortunately the central locking remote (bleeper) also
activates
an immobilisation function - no power to the ignition circuitry (though
the dash telltales
still function) and there is no crack at the seam - it appears to be
plastic welded together
and I'd rather not hacksaw it unless absolutely necessary. There is
also a transponder
in the key itself. It is a long way from the Morris Minor in terms of
electrical sophistication
(probably where the twit who says read the handbook's car knowledge
ends) and they no longer include a wiring diagram in the handbook.

There's a user-replaceable lithium coin cell in my wife's Toyota RAV4
remote, although it's couple of years older than your Corolla.

Does the case for remote have a seam around the middle?  If so, there's
probably one small section that's wider than the rest, and this is where
you prise it apart with a knife blade or something similar.

If that's not what yours is like, then maybe they've moved away from
user battery replacement.  I suggest you go to your local Toyota dealer
and ask them what to do - if your remote comes apart, they'll know, and
may even show you what to do if you ask nicely.

With these there is an over-ride function, there should be a slot to put
this in hidden in the glovebox to disable the remote and then you are able
to use your key to lock+immobilise and unlock+unmobilise the car.

There was a certain combination that was required, inserting it and turning
the ignition on and off in a certain pattern to enable just the key control
to do all the above.

This was a feature that is not very well documented, actually don't think it
is documented. I needed this info to put on a secondary alarm system to tie
in with the remote without having to have my alarm system to a remote to
open/close and do factory immobilise.

I tried to bypass the factory immobilise on installing my alarm on top of
the factory one, wasn't a good idea. The function is tied into the ECU - or
at least that is where every wire ran for that.

Re: Toyota Corolla key fob bleeper


A new remote is more than likely needed.
It will probably have to be programmed/allocated to the bcm by your toyota
dealer.
You should be able to override the immobiliser function somehow as the
transponder in most of the remote keys are unpowered.

IIRC, earlier Toyota key fobs could be reprogrammed by the owner via a
slot in the glovebox. I think you just needed a working remote to copy
the codes from.

Re: Toyota Corolla key fob bleeper


Good function.
Pity the holden remotes aren't like this.
Having to buy a new one when the battery is flat is absolute CRAP.

There are several versions - some are user replaceable CR2032 - others are
soldered and glued.  On our Camry, it is sealed.  $38 (IIRC) and you can get
a new one from Scarboro Toyota.  Ask nicely and they will program it for
free instead of $20.
