How to Disable an Alarm on a Camry

Updated July 20, 2017

One option for Toyota Camry owners is an in-car alarm system. Although car alarms are good to have as a security feature, they sometimes can be obtrusive during some minor electrical repairs because they can be accidentally triggered, giving you quite the scare. Your Camry does have a kill switch, however, that temporarily will disable your alarm while you make repairs.

Open your Camry's door and sit in the driver's seat.

Locate the kill switch, actually a toggle switch, on your Camry. It is located on the left-hand side of the steering wheel column beneath the dashboard. It will be the only switch on that side beneath the dashboard.

Press the toggle switch in and hold it.

Start the engine on your Camry while you are still depressing this switch.

Listen for an audible beep that will let you know the alarm has been disabled.

Reverse this process to reactivate your alarm.
