My 2001 Tacoma came with the RS3000 VIP (Vehicle Intrusion Protection) alarm system.   If you dont have a manual, here you will find most of the information that you would need to change settings, program remotes and more.   This is basically the manual that I have typed in.   I do not have the installation manual that covers the physical installation of the alarm into the vehicle.   I have heard many different stories about what years these alarms were used.   I read elsewhere that they were only used on vehicles up to 1999 or 2000, but this is what was on my 2001 double cab.   I have also heard of people with 2002+ Tundras that have this alarm.
ENJOY!

INTRODUCTION

Congratulations on your choice of the Toyota VIP RS3000 security system to protect your vehicle.  To get the most from this product, we strongly recommend that you read this owners guide completely to understand all of the features and functions of the system.

The RS3000 provides complete vehicle security through point of entry monitoring and glass breakage detection.   While armed, the system is triggered when a door or the trunk (or hatch) is opened*, or when a window is tapped on or broken.   When triggered, the vehicle's horn sounds and the lights, both exterior and interior, flash in a unique pattern.   Perhaps more importantly, the vehicle's starter is disabled at the same time, preventing engine start.   In addition to the comprehensive protection, the RS3000 provides remote control convenience, enabling you to arm and disarm the system and lock and unlock the doors without having to use a key.

The RS3000 offers you operation options, including Passive (Automatic) Arming, and Valet Mode (security features off); both of these operation modes are described in detail in this manual.

*When the system is passively (automatically) armed, there is an entrance delay that elapses when a door is opened before the system is triggered.

RS3000 FEATURES
FEATURES
FUNCTIONS
  REMOTE ARMING / DISARMING
The RS3000 may be ARMED or DISARMED with either of the supplied REMOTE CONTROLS.  If the vehicle is equipped with power locks, the doors are locked when the system is ARMED and unlocked when the system is DISARMED.  
  PASSIVE (AUTOMATIC ARMING)
The RS3000 may be programmed to automatically ARM and protect the vehicle 15 seconds after the ignition key is removed, the vehicle exited, and the last door or trunk hatch is closed.
  PASSIVE DISARMING
The RS3000 may be DISARMED with the vehicle's ignition key when the system was PASSIVELY ARMED.
  VALET MODE
The RS3000 allows the user to suspend security functions, enter and exit the vehicle without the system PASSIVE ARMING or TRIGGERING, and to use the REMOTE CONTROLS just to lock and unlock the doors.  (PANIC MODE still works though)
  PANIC MODE
The user may draw attention to the vehicle by depressing the top button on the REMOTE CONTROL for over 2 seconds.   When this mode is activated, the lights flash and the horn sounds for 57 seconds, or until PANIC MODE is deactivated.   This mode may be activated at any time.
  POINT-OF-ENTRY PROTECTION
The RS3000 will TRIGGER if a door, trunk or hatch is opened while the system is ARMED.   (If the system was PASSIVE ARMED, the ENTRY DELAY must pass before TRIGGERING occurs.)
  GLASS BREAKAGE SENSOR
The RS3000 uses a microphone mounted in the STATUS MONITOR to sense the noise from tapping on window glass, or glass breakage, and TRIGGER the system.  It is fine tuned to "listen" for this type of noise and ignore other sounds.
  STATUS MONITOR
This panel houses the GLASS BREAKAGE SENSOR microphone, and the flashing LED light that indicates the operating status of the security system.
  STARTER DISABLE
When the RS3000 is TRIGGERED, it disables the vehicles starter, and prevents engine start until the system is reset.
  AUTOMATIC REARMING AND RE-LOCKING
The RS3000 will automatically RE-ARM, and RE-LOCK the doors after it is REMOTE DISARMED, when no door, trunk or hatch is opened within 30 seconds after disarming.
  AUTOMATIC DOOR LOCKING / UNLOCKING (for vehicles
  equipped with power door locks)
The RS3000 is programmed to automatically LOCK all of the vehicle's doors when the ignition key is turned to "ON" or "START", and UNLOCK them when the key is turned back to the "ACC" or "LOCK".
  PIEZO "CHIRPER"
This device produces a soft "chirp" sound when the RS3000 is ARMED or DISARMED.  It also produces sound for the DOOR AJAR WARNING, and chirps to confirm function programming changes.
  DOOR AJAR WARNING
The PEIZO "CHIRPER" emits a continuous sound for up to 10 seconds when the user attempts to REMOTE ARM the system while a door, trunk or hatch is open.
  INTERIOR LIGHT ACTIVATION
The vehicle's interior lights turn on for 3 seconds after REMOTE ARMING, for 30 seconds after REMOTE DISARMING, and flash in a unique pattern while the system is TRIGGERED.
  EXTERIOR LIGHT ACTIVATION
The RS3000 flashes the exterior (tail and marker) lights during PASSIVE and REMOTE ARMING, REMOTE DISARMING, and flashes them in a unique pattern when the system is TRIGGERED or in the PANIC MODE.
  HORN ACTIVATION
While TRIGGERED or in PANIC MORE, the RS3000 sounds the vehicles horn in a unique pattern.
  NOISE ABATEMENT
While TRIGGERED, the RS3000 sounds the vehicle's horn for 57 seconds (one cycle).  It will not sound the horn for more than then consecutive cycles.
  TRIGGER MEMORY
The user is notified that the RS3000 was TRIGGERED and reset.  When REMOTE DISARMING, the exterior lights flash 3 times, instead of the normal 2 times.  When PASSIVE DISARMING (by key), the exterior lights flash 3 times when the ignition switch is turned "ON".
  POWER LOSS MEMORY
If power in the vehicle is lost while the RS3000 is ARMED, the system will trigger when power is restored.
  TWO BUTTON, THREE CHANNEL REMOTE CONTROLS
Top button:      Primary vehicle
Bottom button: Second vehicle equipped with a 1998 model RS3000
  PROGRAMMABLE REMOTE CONTROL CODES
The RS3000 REMOTE CONTROL is programmed from a pool of 2,000,000 possible transmitting code combinations, preventing generic remote control operation of your system.   The RS3000 can be easily programmed to operate with up to 4 different REMOTE CONTROLS, depending on system configuration.
  VEHICLE SPECIFIC INSTALLATION
The RS3000 was designed specifically for your Toyota vehicle, and is built to the same exacting standards applied to every genuine Toyota component.

INITIAL (FACTORY) FEATURE SETTINGS

PASSIVE ARMING
OFF
PIEZO CHIRPER DEFEAT
OFF
AUTOMATIC DOOR LOCKING (AT IGNITION ON)
ON

When shipped from the factory, the RS3000 system is programmed to operate with the two included REMOTE CONTROLS.   Upon remote ARMING and DISARMING, the PIEZO "CHIRPER" will chirp, the exterior lights will flash, and the interior lights are turned on.   The GLASS BREAKAGE SENSOR was adjusted upon installation to prevent false "alarms".   When TRIGGERED, the system will flash the interior and exterior lights, and sound the vehicle's horn in a unique pattern; additionally, the vehicle's starter will be disabled.   The system will reset after 57 seconds, or can be reset and DISARMED by use of a REMOTE CONTROL.

For more detailed information on the operation of this system, please refer to the "OPERATIONS" and "CONVENIENCE FEATURES" sections.   For information on tailoring the operation of the RS3000 to meet your needs, refer to the "PROGRAMMING AND ADJUSTMENTS" section.   We recommend, however, that you have your Toyota dealer perform these adjustments.

AUTOMATIC REARMING AND RE-LOCKING

The RS3000 will automatically REARM, and RE-LOCK the vehicle's doors if no entry point (door, trunk or hatch) is opened within 30 seconds after DISARMING the system by REMOTE CONTROL, or if the key is inserted into the ignition switch.

VALET MODE

The RS3000 may be programmed to temporarily suspend the system's security features.*   The VALET MODE enables you to enter and exit your vehicle without the system ARMING or TRIGGERING, but still allows you to use the REMOTE CONTROLS to lock and unlock the doors.   For information on programming the RS3000 to operate in this mode, see the PROGRAMMING AND ADJUSTMENTS section.

*The PANIC MODE feature will still operate when the VALET MODE is selected.

PASSIVE (AUTOMATIC) ARMING & DISARMING

The RS3000 may be programmed to automatically ARM itself 15 seconds after the ignition key is turned off and removed, the vehicle is exited, and the last point of entry (door, trunk or hatch) is closed.

NOTE: The factory preset operation of this system is PASSIVE ARMING "OFF".   If you would like to change the PASSIVE ARMING function to "ON", refer to the PROGRAMMING AND ADJUSTMENTS section for instructions.

To start the AUTOMATIC ARMING process:
Remove the key from the ignition switch.
Exit the vehicle, and close all entry points (doors, trunk or hatch).
The EXIT DELAY begins:

     The STATUS Monitor's LED lights steadily for 15 seconds.
The EXIT DELAY ends:
     The exterior lights light for 2 seconds.
     The PIEZO "CHIRPER" sounds for 2 seconds.
     The STATUS Monitor's LED begins flashing.
The system is now PASSIVELY ARMED.  Should any door, trunk or hatch be opened during the 15 second EXIT DELAY, the PASSIVE ARMING process will be temporarily suspended until the open entry point is closed.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:     The vehicle's doors are not locked automatically by the RS3000 during the PASSIVE ARMING process; please remember to lock your vehicle's doors by key, or manually, when you do not use the REMOTE CONTROL.

To DISARM with the ignition key (after PASSIVE ARMING the system)
Enter the vehicle through a front door.
The ENTRY DELAY begins:
     The STATUS Monitor's LED flashes quickly.
Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn it to the "ON" position before the ENTRY DELAY ends*.
     The LED stops flashing
     The system is no DISARMED.

NOTE:  If the exterior lights flash 3 times, and the engine does not start the first time when the ignition key is turned to "START", the TRIGGER MEMORY was activated.   The system was TRIGGERED and reset while you were away from the vehicle.

*The ENTRY DELAY is factory preset to 15 seconds, and may be adjusted to 5, 15, or 30 seconds.   If the ENTRY DELAY ends before the ignition switch is turned on, the system will be TRIGGERED.   To DISARM the system while it is TRIGGERED, insert the ignition key, and turn it "ON-ACC-ON", or press and release the REMOTE CONTROL's top button once.

 

SECURITY MODE TRIGGERING

While ARMED, the RS3000 will TRIGGER (vehicle's horn sounding, exterior lights flashing, and starter disabled) when any of the following events occurs:

     Abrupt striking on the vehicle's window(s)*
     Breaking of a vehicle's window*
     Opening any of the doors**
     Opening the vehicle's trunk or hatch
     Power list then restored while the system is ARMED.

When TRIGGERED, the RS3000 will flash the exterior and interior lights*** and sound the vehicle's horn in a unique pattern for 57 seconds per TRIGGERING cycle.    It will also disable the vehicle's starter until the system is DISARMED by key or REMOTE CONTROL

To DISARM the system while TRIGGERING occurs:
Press and release the REMOTE CONTROL's top button once.
                  Or
Insert the ignition key, and turn it to "ON-ACC-ON".

*The GLASS BREAKAGE SENSOR TRIGGERS the system in two ways:  When the sound of tapping, or breaking glass is detected, the system will first activate the vehicle's horn and exterior lights for 20 seconds as a warning;   the vehicle's starter is not disabled.   If the glass is tapped on or broken within 5 seconds of the first detection, the system will TRIGGER for 57 seconds; the vehicle's starter is disabled.

**When PASSIVELY ARMED, the ENTRANCE DELAY (factory set to 15 seconds) must elapse before the system will TRIGGER when a door is opened.

***In some vehicles, the interior lights will not flash, but instead just light up during TRIGGERING.

CONVENIENCE FEATURES
AUTOMATIC DOOR LOCKING / UNLOCKING

The RS3000 is programmed to automatically lock your doors when the ignition switch is turned to "ON" or "START", and unlock them when the ignition switch is turned to "LOCK" or "ACC".    This feature will operate only once (AUTOMATIC LOCK then AUTOMATIC UNLOCK) before a door is opened and closed again.   The AUTOMATIC LOCKING feature will not work while a door is open.

NOTE: The factory preset operation of this feature is AUTO DOOR LOCK / UNLOCK "ON".   If you would like it changed to "OFF", refer to the PROGRAMMING AND ADJUSTMENTS section.

INTERIOR LIGHT ACTIVATION

When REMOTE ARMED, the RS3000 turns on the vehicle's interior lights for 3 seconds; when PASSIVE ARMED, the interior lights are turned on for 3 seconds after the EXIT DELAY elapses.   When REMOTE DISARMING, the interior lights are turned on for 30 seconds*, allowing you to easily see inside your vehicle at night before entering.   During TRIGGERING, the interior lights are flashed**.

*Or until the doors are closed.
**In some vehicles, the interior lights will not flash, but instead just light up during TRIGGERING.

WARNING FEATURES
DOOR AJAR WARNING
When using a REMOTE CONTROL to ARM the RS3000, the PIEZO "CHIRPER" will emit a continuous sound for up to 10 seconds if a door, trunk (or hatch) was left open; the system will not ARM.   After closing the open door, or trunk (or hatch), the REMOTE CONTROL button must be pressed again to ARM the system.
TRIGGER MEMORY

The RS3000 alerts you upon DISARMING the system, that an intrusion attempt was made on your vehicle while you were away, and that the system was TRIGGERED.

TRIGGER MEMORY operation when REMOTE DISARMING:
Press and release the REMOTE CONTROL's top button once.
     The doors unlock. (The vehicle must be equipped with power locks)
     The interior lights turn on for 30 seconds.
     The exterior lights flash 3 times.

TRIGGER MEMORY operation when DISARMING by key:
Open the door, and sit in the drivers seat.
     The ENTRANCE DELAY begins
     The STATUS Monitor's LED flashes rapidly.
Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn it to "START"
     The exterior lights flash 3 times.
     The starter will not start, because the STARTER DISABLE function is still active.
Turn the ignition key back to "OFF", then "START" again.
     The STARTER DISABLE feature is deactivated.
     The engine starts.

POWER LOSS MEMORY
If power to the RS3000 ECU (computer) is lost while the system is ARMED, the system goes to "sleep"; when power is restored, the system TRIGGERS immediately.
MISCELLANEOUS
REMOTE CONTROL RANGE

The maximum range for the RS3000's REMOTE CONTROLS is 50 feet.   However, several factors that may affect your REMOTE CONTROL's actual performance, include, but are not limited to:

--The REMOTE CONTROL battery's strength* (weak battery = decreased performance)

--Your position relative to the vehicle (dependent on the system's antenna wire location)

--Objects in the path between you and your vehicle

--Your surroundings (in a parking structure, out in the open, etc.)

--Outside electrical interference caused by high tension power lines, etc.

*As the REMOTE CONTROL's battery becomes weaker, the LED indicator becomes dimmer.   When you notice the LED becoming dimmer, you should replace the battery.

NOISE ABATEMENT

In many areas, there are regulations concerning the duration of a vehicle's security system TRIGGERING (horn sounding) before the vehicle is towed, or ticketed.   The RS3000 was designed with these regulations in mind.

If the system is TRIGGERED by the opening of a door or trunk (or hatch), the TRIGGER duration is 57 seconds.   At the end of this period, the system will reset.

If the system is TRIGGERED by the GLASS BREAKAGE SENSOR sensing that the sound of tapping or breaking of glass, the initial TRIGGER duration is 20 seconds.   If the GLASS BREAKAGE SENSOR senses tapping or breaking of the glass again within 5 seconds, the system will TRIGGER for 57 seconds before resetting.

The system can be TRIGGERED a total of 10 times (57 second cycles, for a total of 9 1/2 minutes) before the horn will not sound any more (until the system is DISARMED).   The STARTER DISABLE function continues to operate after the 10 triggering cycles, until the system is DISARMED and reset.

PROGRAMMING AND ADJUSTMENTS
PASSIVE (AUTOMATIC) ARMING, AND VALET MODE

The PASSIVE (AUTOMATIC) ARMING and VALET MODE functions are factory set to OFF.  When the system is programmed for PASSIVE ARMING operation, the ENTRY DELAY is factory set to 15 seconds.   When the system is set to VALET MODE, the security functions are disabled.

To select an operating mode, follow the steps below:

1) Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn it to "ON", (NOT "ACC")

2) Using 1 REMOTE CONTROL, press and hold both buttons (at the same time) for over 2 seconds, until the STATUS Monitor's LED turns on.

--YOU MUST PERFORM THE NEXT STEPS WITHIN 30 SECONDS--

The factory setting for the automatic door locking and unlocking function is on.

1:   Sit in the drivers seat with the drivers door open.

2:   Insert the key into the ignition switch and turn it to on (not acc) 5 times (on-lock, on-lock, on-lock, on-lock, on) within a 10 second period.   The status monitors LED turns on, and the piezo chirper sounds once.
***You must perform the next steps within 30 seconds***
Select the operating mode:

Automatic door locking and unlocking on:   Close the drivers door.   Turn the ignition switch to the lock position.   The piezo chirper sounds once, and the exterior lights flash once.

Automatic door locking and unlocking off:   Close the drivers door once, then open and close it one more time.   Turn the ignition switch to the lock position.   The piezo chirper sounds twice, and the exterior lights flash twice.

If you do not turn the ignition key to lock, or exceed 30 seconds during the programming steps, the status monitor's LED will turn off and the previous operation mode will remain.

Remote Control Programming

The RS3000 ECU can be programmed to be operated by as many as 4 remote controls.   Additionally, the provided remote controls top and bottom buttons may be assigned to operate another 1998 or 1999 model vehicles RS3000 security system, and both buttons can be programmed to operate the system in one vehicle.   To add or delete a remote control, you must access the RS3000 ECU (computer), location varies by vehicle and model.

To program (add) a remote control to the system:

1:  Insert the key into the ignition switch and turn it to on.

2:  Press and hold the ECU's programming switch for 3 seconds.   The status monitors LED turns on for 5 seconds.
***You must perform the next step within 5 seconds***

3:  Press and release a remote controls top or bottom button.   Either button on your remote control can be programmed to operate the RS3000.   The status monitors LED turns off.   The piezo chirper chirps once.   The exterior lights flash once.

4:  Turn off the ignition.   The ECU will now operate with the remote control just programmed.

Note: The factory preset operation is for the top button on both remote controls to operate your system; the bottom button is not programmed.   To prevent accidental erasure of a remote controls code, we recommend that you program all your remote controls at the same time.

To erase all remote control codes from the system:

1:  Insert key into the ignition switch, and turn it to on.

2:  Press and hold the ECU programming switch for 3 seconds.   The status monitors LED turns on for 5 seconds.
***You must perform the next step within 5 seconds***
3:   Press and hold the ECUs programming switch for over 2 seconds again.   The status monitors LED turns off, then flashes 3 times.   The piezo chirper chirps 3 times and the exterior lights flash 3 times.

4:  Turn off the ignition.   The ECU has cleared all remote control codes.   Until another remote control is programmed, the system will not work with any remote control.

 

Glass Breakage Sensor Sensitivity Adjustment

The following procedure is listed for information purposes.  Contact the service department at your Toyota dealer to set up an appointment to have them make any necessary adjustments to the Glass Breakage Sensor.
(That is what the manual says!)

1:  Locate the glass breakage sensor controller in the vehicle.  (Location varies by vehicle and vehicle model)   Disassemble the vehicle as necessary to access the controller.

2:  Verify the system is in the passive arming on or off mode, not valet mode.   Program as necessary.

NOTE: Before adjusting the glass breakage sensor's sensitivity, confirm that it was adjusted to the vehicle specific, predetermined level for the vehicle.  You may find the proper setting level in the installation instructions for this system.  (I do not have the installation instructions.)

To test the glass breakage sensor sensitivity:

1:  Close all doors, windows, and the trunk or hatch.

2:  Arm the system with the remote control.

3:  With the tip of the ignition key, tap the center of the drivers door window with moderate force (from outside the vehicle).   The RS3000 should be triggered and the alarm sound for 20 seconds.   Obviously, daunt tap so hard as to break or chip the window!

If the system does not trigger, the sensitivity may be too low.   Tap the drivers door window again with slightly more force.   If the system still does not trigger, the sensitivity should be adjusted.   Also, the system should not trigger when the drivers door glass is tapped with light force.   If this is the case, the sensitivity should be adjusted.

To adjust the glass breakage sensor sensitivity:

1:  Turn the glass breakage sensor controller adjustment screw on "click" up to increase sensitivity or one click down to decrease sensitivity.

2:  Re-check the sensitivity as described above.

3:  Repeat the previous two steps until the desired results are achieved.

NOTE:  Too high of a sensitivity level will result in false alarms; the RS3000 may trigger for no apparent reason.

Remote Control Battery Replacement

When the operating range of the remote control diminishes and/or the LED on the remote control has become weak or dim, battery replacement is required.   You may obtain a replacement battery for your Toyota dealer or purchase one from a drug store etc..   The battery type is a Lithium CR2025.    We recommend replacing the batteries in your remote controls once a year to maintain optimum operating range.

Precautions:   Always handle the battery using a dry cloth.   Do not handle a battery with bare hands; body oils may interfere with the contacts and cause a malfunction.   The expected battery lift (with normal usage) is 1 year.   The life of the batteries in the supplied remote controls may be shorter than 1 year.   (As of the time of writing this, the batteries in my remote controls are just over 3 years old, and are still working fine.)

Battery Replacement

1:  Remove the screw securing the two halves of the remote control case.

2:  Remove the back cover

3:  Remove the old battery, using caution to not bend the battery contacts.

4:  Insert the new battery, positive (+) side down.

5:  Reassemble the case, and test the remote control.

NOTE:  Replacing the remote controls battery will not erase the remote controls code from the ECU (computer).
