Default Venza Car Alarm Problem

I have a 2009 Venza v6 awd; my car alarm keeps going off for no apparent reason. Has anyone else experienced this issue, or has been able to resolve it? My car dealer does not seem to know what to do. Thanks.

I have to confess I frequent 3 Venza "boards" daily for info etc. One of the posters on the Toyotonation site has gone through a similar problem with their Venza. The poster figured out that the trunk latch was triggering it and if the trunk was manually closed the alarm did not go off. After visiting the dealer it was determined that "...its a electrical defect in the engine hood latch..." Apparently replacement part has been ordered. I hope this helps.

it appears the hood interlock part of the security system could be defective...... as posted in another forum..... might be worth a check...

We have exactly the same problem with our 2009 Venza V6 AWD. The alarm goes off e.g. 3 times in a matter of a few hours, and than there may be no problems for a few days. We had it in to 2 different Toyota dealers for a total of 3 service calls ( one is 1 hour away from our house, the other 2 hours)Once they changed a switch for the hood, but the problem goes on, and it is very embarrassing, not only for me who has to run to the car to disarm the alarm, but also for Toyota.
Toyota now wants us to bring the car there again for at least a day and rent a car for the time being. The car has 15 K miles on it.
I am about to go and trade in the car for something more reliable, replace my pick up truck with a Chevy instead of the Toyota Tundra I really wanted, and call the Toyota detour (from Audi Quatro A6) a bad mistake.

BEFORE you go that far - try calling the 800# and get a case opend and have them contact the original dealer. FWIW - they should give you a rental if they keep it over night. Changing a potential defective interlock switch is cheap and simple to tet he theory.

If this is the only problem you've encountered, it may be worth working to a resolution vs. taking a major hit on the trade-in value...... especially if it is a simple fix once they get to it...

My 2011 Toyota Venza's alarm goes off a few hours after I start and stop the engine. I took it to the Toyota dealer who said nothing was wrong. The dealer disabled the horn part of the alarm but the lights still flash. I'm waiting for a cop to knock on my door at 3am when they see the lights flashing. And Toyota is trying to "rebuild the public trust"? I don't think so.

We have a 2009 Venza we bought in AK where we had no problems with it, but in the last year we have numerous issues with the alarm/horn going off at unexpected times. We called the dealer service shop and it was mentioned it could be the key battery might need to be replaced, we did that. Then we were told to only lock the doors one way--either do it remote all the time or do manual--that didn't work. Finally took it in to the Toyota dealership here in Germany where we are now and they diagnosed it as the hood latch--which we replaced and paid for Dx process to the tune of 150 Euro as well as buying a new battery for GP's. Two weeks later I am at work, my car horn evidently started going off about 1300 and no one bothered to let me know until about 1600 when you could barely hear it as the battery was next to dead. I could do absolutely nothing with the car, to include getting the windows up. So, we took it back in to the dealership and they have no idea what it is --- does Toyota know anything? From reading this, it sure seems we are not the only ones with this issue. Right now we have the fuses pulled from the horn and the alarm, although the dealership said that won't help--but it seems to.
