Cycle the key in the ignition from off to on (where the dash indicators light up), 5 times. All doors and hood and trunk must be closed. This is the reset procedure for the "factory" alarm. Otherwise look in the owners manual where there is a red button under the steering wheel, possibly behind a panel. If you don't have the manual go to https://ssl.toyota.com/owners/login , have your VIN # ready and you can download or just reas it. It's under 'resources' in the dropdown
