Alarm or security system (excluding aftermarket systems)

"The alarm sensor connected to the hood latch malfunctioned and would randomly set off the alarm (usually late at night or early morning)"

Jacob B., IA (2011 Toyota Camry XLE 3.5-L V6)

"Hood latch sensor mechanism was failing intermittently. Alarm would go off at the worst times possible"

Steven W., NJ (2011 Toyota Camry XLE 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"The hood censor was malfunctioning, causing it to detect that hood was open. It would happen while the car was parked and also while I was driving. The way I dealt with it was to open and then shut the hood after I had park. However, this would only work until the next time the car was driven."

Anonymous, NY (2011 Toyota Camry XLE Unsure)

"The factory car alarm (horn and lights blinking) would periodically go off. The information display indicated a open hood (was not open). The sensor at the hood latch needed to be replaced. This was a subject of a Toyota service bulletin."
