Does a 2002 Tacoma come "prewired" for an OEM Toyota alarm?

    I purchased a used 2002 Toyota Tacoma 4x4, manual, xcab, TRD 2 weeks ago (will post pics in a separate post once I clean it).

    When I bought my new 2002 Toyota Highlander 6 years ago, I had to buy a $400 "Alarm" from the dealer. As I understand Toyota's come prewired for an oem alarm, all the dealer does is plug in the alarm module and then you have an alarm. Less then a 15 minute process.

    My question is. Does the 2002 Toyota Tacoma come prewired for an oem Toyota alarm? I'm looking for an oem Toyota Alarm.

    Thanks!

    I thought they all are prewired?

    So if its not prewired then I have to tap into the harness?

    What I understand it was a simple plug/play method. No cutting required..

    Cheaper and better if you go after market. If it's just an alarm with no remote start the install is pretty straight forward for a somewhat handy DIYer

    Look at my Build
    its all plug and play. it just a pain in the ass to find the kit. the kit i bought came with 2 remotes, module, instructions, zip ties, foam tape, and the Y harness. super easy to install probably like 30 mins of work.
    and i would disagree that an aftermarket one is better.

    I had a 2001 Tacoma a few years back and I installed the factory alarm in it. It was all plug and play but it is a pain to get to everything. I think it took me about 6 hours but it was the first time I had ever done one and I was taking my time. But I do know that it is hard to find one also.

    Did you get yours from the dealership? Why was it a pain to get? Cant I just go to the Toyota dealership and order it? I think its the RS3200 for a 2002 Toyota Tacoma.

    Did you install the keyless entry only or the alarm with the keyless entry?

    I have a 2003, not sure if its the same for 2002. I did the "free alarm upgrade" found on that taco site. In addition, I also found the LED/Glass break sensor online from a toyota dealer online. Basically, I have the fully functioning alarm system, with glass break sensor. Totally plug n play for me. But i'm not sure if it was the same way for 2002. I'm sure I did not give you any pertinent information in my post. HAHA sorry

    When you did your "free alarm upgrade" did you already have keyless entry? I think keyless entry is required for the "free alarm upgrade".

    Unfortunately I do not have keyless entry. :(

    I will ask the dealer how much the module is for the keyless entry and the RS3200 alarm.

    Yeah I figured that. :)

    Does anyone know how much just the keyless entry costs at the dealer? I'm thinking I can get the keyless entry installed at the dealer then I can possibly do the "free alarm upgrade" myself as mentioned a few posts up.

    If anyone could let me know that would be great!
