    I just bought my 2008 tundra that has Toyota factory remote start.. But the truck locks when it cranks and when you open the door with the key or unlock with the fob it cuts off.. Anyway to fix this ?

    Not that I am aware of. Anti-theft feature. It has been the source of some displeasure regarding the factory remote start.

    Standard for Toyota. Not a fan of that, but it's what they do.

    All Toyota and Lexus have this. I'm guessing so someone doesn't drive off with your truck.

    ^^This. I have Viper alarm and it only cuts off if the brake petal is pressed if the key is not inserted. Lock and unlock work while remote start is activated.

    Now that's common sense. A lot better than turning off with the door open.
