Hello,

To reset the security system shut all doors and disconnected the battery. Remove the negative battery terminal from the battery and hold it on the positive battery terminal for five minutes which will discharge the capacitors and hard reboot the system restarting the security protocol.

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken

Does this work for all cars, or just Toyota's?

It depends on the car and why the system is armed. If it was due to a battery replacement it can work.
