Not sure if your RAV has remote locks...it's possible that a prior owner had an aftermarket alarm installed. Check under the dash (drivers side) for a module, usually black, that does not look like a Toyota part, it should have a flat connector - all wres in a row, probably 8 or 10 of them, unplug connector from module and hopefully you'll be all set.
