Default Camry glass break detector

I followed the instructions in the owners manual exactly to
test the glass break detector and the alarm didn't sound.

I locked the doors and waited for 30 seconds until the
alarm set indicator on the dash started flashing, then I
tapped on the drivers door with the key as indicated
in the instructions and the alarm did not function using
this test. If I tap any harder I'm afraid I'll break the glass.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Try closing the hood.
That noise sets it off on mine.

If you know the location of the glass breakage sensor, you can rattle
a set of keys near it to test and see if it works. Most glass breakage
sensors can't tell the difference. Seems the signature they are
looking for is very similar.

The sensor's sensitivity may be set wrong by the tech. If what others
said don't work, then you may need to check the sensitivity.

If you have the OEM alarm, it's made by Fujitsu-Ten. They have a fax
back service that will fax you the exact installation and configuration
instructions (much more than the owners manual that tells you how to
test the sensor). Walfgang posted this number a while back.

Try the Fujitsu Ten VIP FAX back service 310 327-9905

And how do i get the fax back?

By the looks of the sensor in the picture, yours is NOT a Toyota alarm
(one made by Fujitsu-Ten).

Your subject line says "glass break detector". But the picture shows a
motion sensor. Therefore the fax-back number does not apply to the
model. However, it's good to learn a few things about the Fujitsu-Ten
models, such as the how to install one in detail.

Call the fax back number in Wolfgang's email and follow the directions.
You should be able to get a catalog faxed to you, and then you can
select the alarm model of interest. It's been a while since I tried it.
Hope it still works.

Thanks for the replies.

Well, I went back to the dealer and one of the
service guys demonstrated that the glass break
detector was functioning.

The owners manual indicated "with the tip of the key,
tap the center of the drivers door window.
Tap the glass with light to moderate force."

Well he tapped the glass pretty hard with some
kind of heavy object and "tapped" it much harder
than I would have attempted.

No, the glass break detector, called GBS, "listens" to sounds of
certain frequencies -- ones that most resemble glass breakage.

Motion sensor used to be mercury loaded, but now probably just spring
loaded. If the car shakes past a threshold then the alarm goes off
(like in a parking structure).

WoodBee's gadget may be a GBS, but it doesn't look like the one from
Fujitsu-Ten. Also, the Fujitsu-Ten OEM one has a part number like
08585-xxxxx.
