Cobra/META Alarm System Installation on Toyota Vios

Stupid me that caused two of my Cobra/META alarm system remote controls spoiled after 3 years of driving my Toyota Vios. I’d called the Toyota Service Center for the replacement of the remote controls, unfortunately the whole alarm system has to be replaced due the remote control cannot be duplicated when there is none of the functioning remote control is available. The Cobra alarm system can only duplicate the other remote control when there is at least one function remote control is set to command the alarm system into link/sync mode. The whole set of alarm system (the system module with 2 remote controls) cost RM1,230 by Toyota Service Center.

The price is not within my budget and I decided to survey the aftermarket parts. Auto accessories shops sell a lot of alarm systems with less than RM500, but the safety of those system seem not as good as compared to original Toyota Vios Cobra alarm system. Some more there is rewiring is required which might caused some reliability issues to the car.

Then, I found a shop where specialize in remote control and key duplication. They have the original Cobra/META alarm system and sell to me at RM750! I got no idea where they get those system at that price but it since it cheaper almost by half of the Toyota Service Center price, then I decided to go for it icon smile Cobra/META Alarm System Installation on Toyota Vios

Then they disconnect the car battery for 5 minutes, this is to let the alarm system to be reset and we are done! The new Cobra/Meta alarm system work like my usual alarm system again icon smile Cobra/META Alarm System Installation on Toyota Vios

Another RM750 spent because of my careless mistake. Let’s learn the lesson together and avoid such careless mistake again.
