I have a 1995 Toyota 4runner that I bought recently. I went to start it last night and when I turned the key, I lost power to everything. I have a blinking red LED light on the left. No honking horn, but lights continue to flash and truck won't start. I am assuming it is a factory alarm system, but there is nothing in the manual. I need to get this truck going. I disconnected the battery and that didn't work either. Please help! Toyota dealership was worthless!

My car is a 1994 toyota corolla. lately i had my wheels checked and a pad was replaced...however when the job was done, the brake system warning (the light on the dashboard that lights when your brake is engaged) doesn't extinguish even when i already disengaged the hand brake and i was already running. when i told this to the mechanic he simply open my hood and unplug something from the brake fluid container. the brake light was extinguished but it never lights on from then on...what seems to b
