    Rav4 Alarm

    Believe it or not there was an issue on Land Cruiser Amazon where the alarm would go off between 2 & 3am Toyota found it was the plastic radio surround that moved and creaked at a certain temperature and the fix was to foam pad the trim out How somebody found that one I dont know but customer did say it was 2-3am when it happened

    Rav4 Alarm

    The key immobiliser is coded not the alarm, You can replace the key fob battery without taking to dealer They did have a problem with an earth strap coming loose near battery, the strap comes loose from the inner wing, also check your battery, Get it drop tested and see what they report
  11. sorry just read your message again, I thought it was 3 car seats, Should fit with the car seat on one side but its a bit uncomfy on your back sat against the edge of the centre seat and no head rest. Experience - twins now 12 though Knowledge 8 yrs working with Toyota
  12. Although it does have 3 seatbelts, you need to bear in mind these seats are removeable and are really just two seats with 3 seatbelts Personally I would doubt you would get three seats in and I dont think the centre seatbelt that comes all the way down from the roof lining will be long enough.
  13. Most Insurance backed bodyshops give a 3yr warranty on their work I personally would be very surpirsed if Toyota accept it as warranty after a paint repair of any kind, Basically all warranty on a repaired/repainted panel is null and void if done outside the Toyota network which is the same of any manufacturer with some insisting on annual inspections at the dealer. In the old days Toyota issued paint certificates to maintain the warranty period on any repaired panels done by them.
