My old 97 Carina had recently developed alarm problems...the blasted siren used to just go off for no reason! A mechanic at my local Toyota garage told me that it was probably the rechargeable Battery in the siren that had died. He disconnected the unit by removing the radiator water overflow bottle and reaching through a small hole in the chassis. From within, he pulled out a loom of wiring with a connector that ran down inside the front offside bumper panel and disconnected it. This stopped the main issue, but as he had also commented, the alarm kept chirping at random, so I unfastened a portion of the wheeel well trim, reached inside and unbolted the siren and removed it, then dismantled it and yanked the offending Battery out!

The silence was golden!!

Hopefuly you'll be able to do similar and resolve your problem too!

Many thanks for this. As a result of all this information I was able to :

1. Diagnose that the problem was probably with the siren

2. Remove the siren (I removed wheel, then trim, then reached through and unscrewed siren from mount and then unplugged the connector - but just unplugging the connector under radiator expansion bottle would have done - trust me it was easy)

But for this website, I wouldn't have stood a chance !
