Toyota Tacoma Alarm with Red Light on Dash

Does anyone have this alarm? It is the one that honks when you lock and unlock the truck. I have it and was just curious who else does.

I have that alarm, but I disabled the annoying horn blow & just have the parking lights flash. The horn has a series of # of sound offs when you unlock to let you know the vehicle has had an alarm. In the pic you can see the red light-button to the right of the switches. It flashes when the alarm is armed.

I got it. They placed it in one of the blank button slots.

Not a bad alarm I guess, for stock anyhow.

Beeper is the same stock beeper.

I have this one also. The red light is a button that you can push to turn the alarm on and off.

+1 mine is also in one of the blank slots. From what I've found the alarm is made by Audiovox, Prestige models. I downloaded a manual of one of their alarms with a similar remote as mine and everything works like the manual (disabling/enabling horn chirp etc etc)

The manual states that pushing the red button is for disabling/enabling valet mode.

Quote:
The "Valet" switch allows you to temporarily bypass all alarm functions, eliminating the
need to hand your transmitter to parking attendants or garage mechanics. When the system
is in valet mode, all alarm functions are bypassed, however, the remote panic feature and
remote door locks will remain operational.

It sounds like a decent alarm but it's $479. I opted out of it because I could get a remote start system for that much or less. Of course that is only if I wanted remote start.

Wow didn't know it cost that much, I got mine luckily for free I wasn't expecting an alarm since my truck is a base 5-lugger, I was surprised to see the alarm when the truck got delivered.

Yeah if I was any good at negotiating I would have asked for it for free since I did just burn 30K for a vehicle.

Im guessing, but I think most Toyotas here in PR come with an alarm just like that. At least i've seen it in a lot of Toyotas in here.

I'm glad that we at least get that then, we already pay $2K more than what a Tacoma costs in the states.
