    Has anybody had problems with the install of the RS3200 Plus alarm system? According to Toyota corporate my vehicle (verified by VIN) is capable of accepting the system but my local dealer is in the process of installing the second one and is unable (as of yesterday) to get it to work.

    They have the truck torn apart and are shooting wire to wire; according to the Service Department the system should be working but it isn't. I asked them to find a vehicle on the lot that has it installed already and to use it to verify the proper installation.

    Truck is a 2008 Access Cab, TRD Sport - no side curtain airbags or additional security system other than the vehicle immobilization (via key) - both a prereq according to Toyota.

    More to come but thought somebody may have had a similiar problem to share.

    the alarm system is now working. Toyota had to call the manufacturer of the alarm system to verify the installation instructions. Come to find out, the wiring diagram/ connection info supplied with the alarm is incorrect. The alarm manufacturer is going to supply supplemental info to Toyota via some form of technical bulletin until a change to the instructions can be made.

    Should anybody else run into this problem...be aware and pass it on.

    Issue here during the install of a rs3200plus (pt398-35090).
    One of the connectors located in the side panel near the drivers left foot does not match the associated connector of the rs3200plus harness. Truck's connector same style but has 2 extra pins between the connector clip area which the rs3200 harness connector does not have
    Page 7 "(h) Locate the vehicle’s white 12P connector in​
    the driver side cowl area,.."
    http://www.toyotapart.com/2009-2010...98-35090_REV._A_T-AI-0280-D_--PT398-35090.pdf

    Never went further then this.
    Also, the on page 7, shows a total different connector arrangement then the truck's, not that I could have missed the connector in question.

    Granted, it should go in, but I am saying the connector has changed on the 2011 model.

    That was the 10P connector not the 12P


    Well I found the 10P connector..

    It was inside the metal cowl wall behind a wire bundle. I had to remove the metal plate which the plastic cowl cover clips to ( metal plate with two male tabs held by 10 mm bolt) and the metal bracket which connects the body to the fuse box assembly (10mm bolt) . I released the clips of the blue plastic cowl insert, moved that out, then I could get to the connector, just barely, as is it took me about 30 minutes to release the 10P clip, as it was still behind the cowl wall. Perhaps I could have pulled out the connector a bit more from within the cowl if I pulled hard, but I was not in the gambling mood; without removing the cowl cove clip plate and the plastic insert there was no access to the connector.
    Have to give Toyota credit for the plastic panel releases, all the panels came off/reinstalled with ease, much better then my 2000 Siena, there was no need for the plastic panel removal tool.
    The rest of the install was simple.
