    Thanks to everyone for this. My LC came from FL originally, and no one here in CA recognizes my alarm system. I have the same remotes. Thanks again.

    The reason for the difference is the way Toyota's, including Lexus are distributed in the Southeast Market. This is from Wiki but is accurate.....Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (SET) is the world’s largest franchised distributor of Toyota vehicles. The 172 dealers in the five states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina & South Carolina account for 20% of Toyota sales in the United States. SET is a wholly owned subsidiary of JM Family Enterprises.(end)

    JM Enterprises takes in Toyota vehicles off the boat and adds their own/selected aftermarket items on to many vehicles. Different rims, accessories, alarms, etc.etc.

    This is a big markup for them and you used to be able to find some really expensive aftermarket kits slapped on the vehicles by JM. I often wondered about the quality of the products when I looked at them.

    Also, JM Enterprises has the power to change factory options. Not done it in sometime but if you went and tried to build a Toyota with a Zip that fell into the JM Market group you got different options than one outside their zip code groups.

    IIRC, some of the ebay sellers that have the remotes for sale also post the instructions for re-programming.

    I have a Florida LC with the Audiovox aps-400 TDS installed. I have the same ELVAT5G remote.. and found the main module 00016-30965-01 tucked up behind the main fuse box above drivers left foot. My FOBs died, and in exasperation I simply removed the main module .. problem solved, I can start the truck again. Am considering removing the entire TDS assembly, selling it, and getting a simple door lock remote.

    Here is the manual for the system, I haven't seen it online.. hopefully it will be helpful to others.
    Audiofox APS-400 manual 1994 - Google Drive

    Included above are pictures of the main module and my key FOBs.

    Thanks for the write up! I picked up a FL LC last month. I was doing some electrical work, so I disconnected the battery. When I reconnected it, the alarm tripped and the LC goes crazy. I tried unlocking and locking the LC. Nothing. I tried the ignition. Nothing. By this time, I've triggered the shock sensor a dozen times and the wife is not happy. I disconnected the horns and started fiddling with combinations to disable the alarm. Luckily, my key fob still works. It just needed a new battery, which I borrowed from my garage door opener. The red button on my fob seems to be the magic button (disable and enable). Also, I think the hood has to be closed in order to disable the alarm.

    Everything's happy now, but I'm really not liking the idea of getting stranded if the car battery and key fob happen to die at the same time (Not likely, but still in the realm of possibility given my luck).

    Do you pretty much cut out the Audiovox loom and you are good to go?

    Oh yes, that alarm is a PITA. I removed the entire TDS assembly (its listed for free on this site). Was satisfying to clear out the vampire taps. Installed this system "uxcell Universal Car Remote Control Central Kit Door Locking Keyless Entry System 12V" from Amazon. Pretty simple, specially while clearing out the old system. Did not hook up lights/horns to the new system. Only issue is the key fob unlock does work if you've manually locked the car via the door.
