So, we got let off from work early today at 3pm.

Nice beautiful day down here in FL, beautiful day for a cruise home. I decided though since next week I will be driving the car more I would adjust the MBC down a bit. Last thing I do anymore is going around at max boost.

So, I start the car leaving work early, get out and close the door.

I thought, 'I should have rolled that window down'.

Proceed to under the hood with wrench and readjust boost controller down.

Back to drivers side door, shit, it doesn't open.

lol

Yeah mine auto locks because of the alarm. I don't know how many times I've gotten out of the car with it running only to accidentally close the door and get locked out.

Cannon, you can fix that autolock by the alarm crap.

Connect the autolock solenoid to the seat belt light, so if the seat belt light isnt on, it autolocks. That means if youre not in the car you cant be wearing a seatbelt and it wont autolock.

I just wish there was a replay button somewhere..

I had to pull the handle again, like it didn't register that it didn't open! lol

Best part, I knew it and called it when I first got outta the car.

bwahaha

This thread has much better news then I was expecting since the dragon meet is around the corner.

haha mine does that too, I'm now paranoid so if the car is running I roll the window down if i need to get out to check something.. I should keep a spare key in my wallet.

Mine auto unlocks when the car is running and the door closes... I think one of the PO's did it when they installed the keyless entry.

Do the 90 GT's have an alarm system? In the middle of my center console there is a lil red light that sits right behind the the shifter. Dose anyone know what that is?

I'll try to get a pic of it. My dads two GT-S's do not have the lil light either. I have seen one other celica with it in a pull it yard. I have no clue what it is but I thought it might have something to do with an alarm system.

How do you just "disable" it?

ya, the auto-lock on mine is due to the aftermarket alarm system.

Aftermarket. I've seen a lot of 5g's with the alarm armed light mounted there, I think it's just a convenient spot.

This happened to me last week in the Alltrac. I had to go to Toyota the next day and get a key made!

Are you sure you have an alarm? It may just be a dummy light.

how can I tell the difference. It prolly is just a light because there are no other signs of an alarm system

Has it ever gone off? Have you ever found a brain box for an alarm?
