Security upgrade to the alarm

Hi members,

I recently bought my Fortuner and was told that I needed to upgrade the alarm in order to get insurance. I needed to go to Toyota and get a cover for the Alarm box under the front hood to protect the alarm box. Apparently this is fitted to all new fortuners now but the older models needed to fit them if you change your insurance or in my case bought a older vehicle that did not have the mod.

I was told it would cost around R450 but it ended costing around R1000. Has anybody else needed to fit one as well?

Hi FF101

I have heard of this on the Hilux's.

Aparently they bend open the one top coner of your bonnet to get acces to the alarm box.
I will have to check up on that one for my Fortuner.

Iemand slaan munt uit die besigheid as dit R1000 kos om 'n skermplaat oor die alarm eenheid te instaleer, waarvan is die skermplaat gemaak? ... Pantserstaal. :censored:

Could someone perhaps post us a picture of the cover? Thanks. In future I'll look very carefully at all Fortuners passing by for the telltale dents in the corner of the bonnet :huntsman:

See the attached .pdf for a step by step procedure for fitting Fortuner's anti theft hardware.

Tried to upload but file too large (my file is 819kbs) complete with pictures.

SORRY.....maybe someone can tell me how to overcome the 150kB restriction!

Hi Robert

I see you have the latest version installed.....anti crowbar version that triggers the alarm when the bonnet is pried open.

The switch on the top is integrated into the alarm system.....so the installation would use an extra harness to connect into the system.
Must cost more in hardware and labour.

i dont think it wud be a real help to have that plate.

most of the crooks have code readers..

the main thing is to have ur sword ready at the back door.

if that beepers starts beeping , put ur ninja mask on and come out full force, swing at anything that moves... :rofl:

besides ur cat or dog.. :this:

remember, if that beeper beeps. u know theres a good reason for it.

another bud of mine bought a bbm for 600 bucks, tucked it away in his dash board with charger attached to it.

so he traces the vehicle via bbm protect. thats kinda of a kwai plan..
the aim an object of the ecu plate isnt relevant,
the only reason they lock it in to avoid a swop of ecu box and get vehicle started.

:thumbdown: waste of money.. rather look at a alternative flame thrower... :vain:
