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.

    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.

    Alarm sounds for no reason now and then, Toy shop said it was hood latch switch and had to be repaired at my cost. I bought a Toyota so I wouldn't have these problems. They said wind or vibration can set it off.

    Not fixed I will have to find a bypass or a temp fix until I can find a way to get it fixed
