Factory Alarm May Sound for no Reason on Toyota Venza

The factory installed alarm system may sound for no apparent reason. A revised hood latch assembly is available which should correct this concern.

Alarm goes off for no reason. Keys are not anywhere where the alarm button might get pressed by accident. Started happening 5 days ago, is now happening about once or twice every day.

Alarm sounds, periodically, for no reason. Happened 3 times at dentist office; two weeks later at home, two days later at home again. Frustrating.

Reported problem earlier. Had the hood latch assembly replaced which cost $305. Have now have filed a claim with Toyota Customer service based on the recommendation of my Toyota dealership. Apparently the dealership is seeing quite a few of these repairs.

Alarm goes off in the middle of the night and I key fob will not shut it off. Last night it happened 3 times and I have the horn going off in my head. This should be a recall as I fell if a security system fails what can a consumer do other then go to the dealer. Toyota must know they have issues and should come clean and admit this a recall situation.

Car alarm started going off randomly but seldom about 2 months ago. This week it started doing it a couple times a day and now has escalated to every few hours. So far, it hasn't happened in the middle of the night, but I am afraid to see what tonight holds. Taking it in Monday to dealership.

I have an 09 Venza, the alarm has been going off every 20 minutes, doesn't matter if it's locked or not locked. It's Sunday and I live in a culdesac, the neighbors are going to love me tonight!! I have issues with the drivers side visor too, which seems to be an issue with Toyota.

The alarm will go off for no apparent reason. The car will actually lock itself and then about a minute later the alarm will go off.

I had the same problem for a couple of weeks, and then it went off at 4AM and took it to the dealership the next day. It cost me $290 to change the hood latch. Been 48 hours and nothing yet.

Alarm goes off for no reason. Car must be locked for it to go off. Can't stop it by pressing the key fob. Very annoying and unsafe as I can't lock my car.
