Flashing Sensor

Hi,

Can anyone please offer me some advice on this one? I have just put a new Battery on my RAV4-D4D (diesel) VX (2002) and since then (Sunday) I cannot lock the doors with the key blipper as the alarm goes off after a while. So, I have to go round the car everytime and lock the doors one by one. The key only locks the driver's door, front passenger door and the boot door. Also, there is another flashing sensor just near the cup holder and I cannot find out what this does. It also flashes all the time when the key blipper is used - it never did before! Anyway, the garage wants it in ALL DAY to check it out! I just cannot believe that putting a new Battery on means the car being in the garage for a day. Am I being ripped off? I have not re-programmed the dashboard clock since putting the Battery on. Will this have any effect? What is this other sensor near the cup holder. I have never seen it flash before. Would appreciate any enlightenment.

Hi Tyler

I responded to this earlier on your previous post Re batteries etc.

Have you tried disconnecting the Battery again for a while 1/2 hr. Sounds like the Alarm is confused. That might clear it.

The light near the coffee cup holder is something to do with the alarm warning light. Mine comes on when I lock the car a 54 plate XT2.

In a way, it sounds like the alarm had gone wrong a while ago and been disabled in some way rather then being fix - and disconnecting and reconnecting the Battery by replacing it has enabled the duff alarm again.

It is very odd that the LED by the cup holder never used to flash as that, as has been mentioned, is the alarm warning light.

Hi Tyler.

Not been around for a few days so just catching up. What was the problem?
