    Hello All,

    Generally speaking I love my tacoma. So far, it has been outstanding, but now the little things are starting to bother me. Every other vehicle I've had since 1994, there was some kind of horn note or "chirp" when the remote lock button was pressed, that confirmed that the doors were locked. My Tacoma doesn't do this, and my insane habits make me crazy, because I'm never sure if the damned doors are locked! I would also like to have the doors automatically lock, like the other vehicles, when it reaches a certain speed, etc. Is it possible to program these events into this beast? Help!

    It doesn't bother me one bit actually it makes me more aware of my surrounding especially for a woman. to always look when i turn on my alarm. you can always upgrade your remote and there's alot out there that's mostly state of the art. (i.e Valet or DEI) hope this helps

    Mr CNC, c'mon man! Just LOOK at the truck when you activate the alarm. There is sensory validation but it is visual rather than auditory. I like it because if I came home late or leave early or whatever, I don't have to worry about waking, annoying or bothering anyone else. I am not a, "hey look at me!" type so I like it....alot. I am not saying you are that type but I think it is a very, very mild complaint and, like Ldytaco05 said, "you can always upgrade..."

    LOL TacoKing! I'm not a "Look-at-me" type either, but I guess I'm getting set in my technological ways, meaning that if I press "Lock" on the remote, the vehicle should beep! LOL

    FWIW I contacted my dealer today, and was informed that since all I have is the basic keyless entry system that doesn't include the Toyota security system, then what I have is all I have, and it cannot be changed. I asked how much it would be to upgrade to the Toyota security system, and was told $795, to which I responded, "I'll get used to it the way it is". Thanks to all for the opinions and insights.

    When you leave just press the door locks; confirm that you have the key and close it. I only use the remote to unlock.

    All I need is a vehicle beeping at me. Yeah right.

    Just get this:
    MOERSE LEKKER SALES


    I'm thinking about getting one since you can turn off the chirp, and I have a hard time seeing the lights flash in bright sunlight or here the door locks unless I'm standing next to the truck. At that point I might as well hit the door button or use the key to lock.

    I use my remote when I'm 20-30 feet away so I like a little more distance for the confirmation.

    Here is another option...

    Still working on the auto-locking feature. I have not found a really good way to do it yet. Another thought on that is to simply get a cheapo after-market alarm installed that locks the doors when you start the truck.
