Hi all,

After recently reading how popular Toyota 4x4s are with thieves we have been thinking of adding an alarm to our 120 Prado. The remote for the factory locking is built into the key, not on a seperate fob.
I'm wondering, is there an aftermarket alarm available that can be integrated into the factory central locking and use the factory remote?

Cheers,
Mick.

G'day Mick,

Had a Cobra Platinum system fitted to my new hilux a few months back. Has all the bells and whistles for around $700. Opted not to have an external siren and fitted one in the cabin and one in the rear canopy. Figured any lowlife that breaks in will get serious ear damage after a few seconds and with the 'knock' sensor being so sensative, false alarms do not disturb the neighbours...resets after a minute or so.

Don't think you'll have a problem with the remote compatability.

Cheers,
Sheps

I was really peaved off when after buying a Patrol last year how popular Toyo LC GXLs were.
Then I read the small print, about 4.8 million dollars annually to the car thieves.
Anyway re: your question, there should be "no problemo" of linking the factory central locking remote with a reputable aftermarket alarm system.

Just make sure you get a spare remote.
Why?
For that time when the remote your using is in the other pocket/bag, down the back of the deep cumfy chair or buried by the dog down the back of the yard somewhere & you can't find it & need to use the Prado without calling out the cavellry to help!

If that's Elmore Fud with the gun, we've know of his shooting abillity & recommend to all bystanders to duck (quack, quack, quack) for cover.

Cause the large shy bunny with a hair cut, which is hiding in the grass, is going to duck for cover behind Bugs Bunny or the Sherman Tank.

Sorry to Elmer for spelling his wrong. Sorry, Sorry, Sorry, Sorry, Sorry.
But the large shy bunny with a hair cut & myself are a bit lost (& hopefully hidden) as to what 'shooteratters' are known for?

Put it this way, the safest place for the large shy bunny is directly in front of us. We 'shoot at' a lot, but 'shoot' very little :))))

Ah... the large shy bunny with a hair cut has'nt got a rain coat & he can hear rain on the roof (we're mexicans, cause we live south of the boarder it's raining down here right now) so he's going off to na na land, cause there's w.o.r.k. to do later!

Should be no dramas linking them up together. I got a good system for the old lux for around the $300 and it did central locking, 2 stage immobilizer, sensors on all the doors including the bonnet, backup battery incase someone comes in under the bonnet and cut the main battery wire. Shock sensors if you bump against the car hard enough, it's got some other funky stuff in as well....I was very happy with it, it's made by black widow

If you do get one, make sure its govt approved cat 4 if its an alarm. If its just an immobiliser it will only be govt approved cat 3. Pass the make and model of the alarm onto your insurance company and you should get a discount on your premiums- RACWA does 10% off for it.
