Did power locks with the keychain, keyless entry come standard on the 92 LC? I recently picked one up and although I have power locks, it only came with 2 keys on the keychain and nothing battery powered.
On a 1992, if you look to the left of the steering wheel, down on the dash where the power mirror controls are, you should see a piece marked "Toyota Security" with what looks like a piezo microphone and a rocker switch. If you have this, then you have the alarm system.
There were two different alarms used in 1992, keyfobs are available from Spector Off Road for about $70. Don't know if CDan could get one or not.
Keyless entry wasn't even a standard on the CE, though it was an option.
I tried to get a kit to add one on a couple of years ago for my '97, and while you can still find the keyless entry kit (i.e., the electronic bits), you can't get the hardware kit to install it with, so I was SOL and still have to use the old-fashioned method.
Scamper, I hear you, I am planning on just getting a cheap aftermarket keyless entry (only) unit, don't need an alarm and all that extra crap, just getting annoyed unlocking the back with the key to load up and then unlocking the drivers door w/key to get in, OR getting out of the car, locking all doors with central locking and then unlocking the back w/key to get my cargo out. The PO put quite a few scratches around the key holes too. I just need to buy that cheap keyless entry!
When you get done, please let me know how it worked out. I really would like to have keyless, but I don't want it to look/work like a kludge job. I too don't care about the security stuff--you hit the nail on the head with the tailgate issue!
OK While we are on the subject. The wife's fob front button acts and deacts the alarm but the rear button does nothing....? I assume it is supposed to lock and unlock the doors.....she doesnt care if it works or not but I do! :-\Do yall think the remote is bad or do we need to reset something....or just plunk down $75 for a new one from www.keylessride.com ??? advice always appreciated.
C-dan, I tried for a while.....but it seems my 88 pickup aint impressed by no fancy remote buttons
I'm with Ben and Tom...dont care much about the alarm system but sure would be nice to lock and unlock with a remote 8)
and C-dan do you want me to take a photo of a keystone can wiht the wife's Nikon and email it to you??? your a-tar looks like the Marine Corp's new pixelated camo version of a keystone can
See Beowulf's Elaborate FZJ80 web site for programming instructions. For those of us with a single Toyota the bottom button can be programmed to work just like the top button. That way you're not bugged about a "non-functioning' button.
C-Dan, Keystone is not too bad...I always figured it was just Coors' way of trying to market to PA rednecks.....
do they still make the reg/non-light variety?...
Coors upset me when they stopped selling the Extra Gold Draft!
(For the record... those alarm manual scans have been floating around on 80s lists for a couple of years. The RS3000 manual was originally scanned by landpimp. Some resizing and page fitting was done but others have contributed.)
