Security System and Glass Break Sensors Thanks to Toyota safety features such as airbags and anti-lock brakes, you have valuable peace of mind for when your vehicle is on the road. Hey Braves95 thnx for the help. We do not supply used, after market, or refurbished parts. Glass breakage instantly activates the alarm. Do you think it should be set to be more sensitive? In doing my own research it seems that if you already have an alarm, the V2 harness or V2 alarm kit is needed.
Just wondering if I should increase the sensitivity a bit more so that in case a burglar decides to test it out by tapping with keys, it would go off. I think I found it on for the best price. Anyway, package 7 is great. I saw this post of your where you asking for the V2 install instructions. The life of the batteries in the supplied remote controls may be shorter than 1 year.
We recommend replacing the batteries in your remote controls once a year to maintain optimum operating range. This is basically the manual that I have typed in. The piezo chirper chirps once. I need to update my website. But on the other hand I'm running out of hands here , some Priuses come with anti theft systems. Location varies by vehicle and vehicle model Disassemble the vehicle as necessary to access the controller. I tried to avoid all of this mess by buying the fully optioned package 8, and it's frustrating to find that I maybe didn't get the functionality that I thought I was paying for.
You may obtain a replacement battery for your Toyota dealer or purchase one from a drug store etc. How did you know which security system add on was the right one for your '06 p7 Prius? If the system does not trigger, the sensitivity may be too low. PriusChat is the one of the largest privately-owned car forums left on the internet. You have to tap the glass pretty hard on the default 9 setting but it does go off and I think it goes off for 30 sec unless you stop it. Highly sensitive microphone detects the sound frequency of glass breakage or an object striking the glass. It's the only gotcha I've run into with installing these.
The piezo chirper chirps twice and the exterior lights flash twice. Turn the ignition switch to the lock position. You may find the proper setting level in the installation instructions for this system. It's the only gotcha I've run into with installing these. You will not need that part because it is already installed with the factory alarm. The piezo chirper sounds twice, and the exterior lights flash twice. I thought I copied it but I can't find it.
How much did the dealer charge you to install it? I eventually put my arms up and took a chance and I ordered the V2 and it worked perfect. The horn will sound and the exterior lights will flash for 57 seconds. Locking the door with the fob is what starts the alarm arming process. Glass breakage instantly activates the alarm. When triggered, the vehicle's horn sounds and the lights, both exterior and interior, flash in a unique pattern. I even bought the Security Horn and Security Horn Relay, plugged them both in, still nothing. Cons: Expensive for the number of features offered.
Contact your Toyota dealer for more details. The dealer said it was set so as not to cause false alarms, like a cat jumping onto the windows. To program add a remote control to the system: 1: Insert the key into the ignition switch and turn it to on. Do not use in vehicles with 24V specifications. If it is activated, the horn will sound.
It comes as an accessory add on and comes with a detailed set of installation instructions. Just lock the car and if someone taps or brakes the glass the alarm goes off. If you dont have a manual, here you will find most of the information that you would need to change settings, program remotes and more. The system is integrated with the keyless entry system so that you don't need an extra remote. The software detects it, and thankfully I have not had glass broken to make sure it works. The gbs alarm works great. Those that do, are they dormant until programmed or activated? Perhaps more importantly, the vehicle's starter is disabled at the same time, preventing engine start.
Glass Breakage Sensor If your Toyota has a factory security system and the Smart Key system, you can also add a glass breakage sensor for additional protection. If your doors are locked and someone tries to open the door by using the outside handle, it won't sound unless the door is forced open. Exit the vehicle, and close all entry points doors, trunk or hatch. I tapped on the driver's window quite strongly and it doesn't go off. On the other hand, the posts here imply that this anti theft system is not activiated until I buy something else, not sure what, that activiates it.
