I have a 97 Vienta Touring and the previous owner had lost the remote for
the central locking. I spoke to Toyota about what it would cost to fix and
was quoted $800 for a replacement CIR unit and 2 new remotes and basically
told that I was better off getting an aftermarket unit. This car also has an
"Integrated Security System" from factory but I am not exactly sure what
that includes other than an alarm, anyone know if it has an immobiliser or
how good the system is.
So my questions are,
1) What is the Integrated Security System?
2) What aftermarket remote central locking kit should I be looking at, or
should I be looking at an alarm system and using its remotes? What do they
3) Is this a job I am likely to be able to do myself or should I go to an
auto electrician if it involves messing around with the security system?
Any help is greatly appreciated and I am in Brisbane, Australia if anyone
has any recommendations on where to get stuff done.
