I am looking for information about upgrading a 2005 RAV that has power locks and windows but apparently no keyless entry. The dealer (it is a used car I am buying) says it needs a controlm unit and harness / remotes. Has anyone else done this? What is involved?
Thanks

Most aftermarket car alarms have such a feature depending upon what type of system you buy. My DEI Viper alarm is able to lock/unlock the doors remotely; and from a far distance too! Look into it, you don't have to have a factory Toyota alarm system for it to work on a Toyota. Hope that helps. :D

Me too, remote starter with alarm. Galaxy 5100 for manual tranny, from Autoalarmpro.com. Installed it last fall and it's worked like a charm all winter! It has the remote door lock/unlock feature, as well as security alarm, and remote start. They have it for automatic tranny as well. Good luck!

Toyota makes a keyless entry system with an alarm. I bought one online for around $250. Installation looked fairly easy for anyone with any mechanical skills but time-consuming, as it requires pulling all the door panels, among other things. I never found the time to do it myself, and after the kit sat in a box in my hall closet for a year, I finally broke down and took it to my dealer's service dept. It took their tech nearly all day. It works fine though.
