MK4 security


Recommended Posts

Been seeing a few pics lately in and around Midlands where MK4 have been having their windows smashed, car taken and then alloy wheels taken.

MK4 comes with built-in alarm system, so was wondering if system is  not just voltage drop detection ( door open ), but also interior microwave sensing?  Anyone managed to test theirs?

If they want it they will take what they want, does the mk4 not have locking wheel nuts - no alarm on the mk4 unless it's dealer fit

The locking wheel nut key is normally inside the vehicle somewhere.

Oh no, 

it used to be the cats now the wheels 🫢

Where is  the best place to hide the locking wheel nut set then? 🤔

Under the back seat - in the engine bay - cable tied under the front seat, im surprised they didn't take the front end and rear lights unless they got disturbed

looks like the car was parked there, by the amount of glass on the road

I could have sworn the Design spec info on site at the time listed immobiliser and alarm as standard.

EDIT - Just looked on Toyota site and lists both GR and Design specs as having intrusion alarm as standard.

I think the keyless Mk4's have an alarm, not sure about the normal ones. Not sure what the triggers are; No interior motion sensors that I can see. I know it'll go off if you open the door with just the emergency key like the Auris one does tho'.

But seriously, why would anyone steal the 16" rims *from a Yaris* ?!?!?! :confused1:

They're just normal cast ally, not even that nice or light! I could understand if it was the GR Yaris Circuit Pack, rims as those are forged alloy and 1 probably cost near all 4 of a normal Yaris' rims... but the 16" rims?! Is it because they are 5-stud? Are 5-stud alloys in particular demand in the criminal underworld??

Good grief, that's an unexpected Pro to me switching to 15" steel rims!! :eek:

Nothing on the website, it just shows immobilizer - in the brochure it does show it has an immobilizer and intrusion alarm, the "alarm" is more than likely is just an alert through the MyT app not an actual alarm - alarm

the spec for the toyota media archives shows an alarm but no specifics to it tho, a basic alarm that uses the door pins only

I was of the understanding all now have full alarm on UK specs. 
I’m away abroad atm, so will have a check on mine when we get back.

Anyone checked if it has intrusion sensing?

Lock car with fob whilst inside, wait 1 minute and then move around.

Sorry mate far too hot today for me to even think about trying that in this toaster oven! :laugh: 

Didn't even make it to the bottom of my road with the windows open before I caved, closed them all and fired up the AC on Fast :laugh: 

I don't see any sensors tho' so the only way I imagine it could is if the gyros/incline sensors can detect rocking motions or something, but I haven't heard the alarm go off when e.g. an artic flies past.

It's a software alarm built into the ecu/b-ecu

Can you confirm if intrusion sensing is part of it?

nothing stated in the technical documents. So it will be the door, bonnet and boot switches only - intrusion sensing = opening a door

Very disappointed how they can be stolen considering the immobiliser. Are they using the ODB port?

Not sure it was stolen tbh.
