Toyota Venza Factory Alarm May Sound for no Reason
The factory installed alarm system may sound for no apparent reason. A revised hood latch assembly is available which should correct this concern.

Alarm sounds, periodically, for no reason. Happened 3 times at dentist office; two weeks later at home, two days later at home again. Frustrating. - Visitor
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. - Visitor
I cant deal its 1:45am! - Visitor
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. - Visitor

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. - Visitor
Car alarm has gone off for no reason 3x in the last few days. I called the dealer & the woman I talked to said she "had never heard of that". A recall is definitely in order! - Visitor
