The Yaris has just had another face-lift. Today I installed a Cobra AK4218 into one and discovered that it looks quite different from the previous version. I’ve now updated my notes to cover the updated specifications.
The AK4218 will work with all new models. GX, SX and ZR. I’ve yet to test the AK4615 but will update this space when I do.
The internals trim remains the same so all photos below remain accurate for the install.
Original Post from 2015…
The first new car to get an alarm installed this year is the Toyota Yaris (XP130) which I got to work on today.
The Yaris comes with keyless entry as standard so both the Cobra AK4218 Toyota alarm or Cobra AK4615 CAN-BUS alarm are the best systems to look consider if you want to retain the use of the factory remote. They also have a factory look and feel to them and are simply in a class of their own.
Here are some photos of what you’ll see after the install:
What if you own an older Yaris?
All three generations of Yaris come with a factory transponder immobiliser and remote key-less entry as standard.
None of them came with an alarm as a standard option.
What to expect form the alarm:
- Digital battery back-up siren and horn honk
- Ultrasonic internal protection
- Ultrasonic disable via O/E remote Key (AK4218 only)
- LED over-ride emergency disarm
- Cobra Remote Option (AK4615 only)
