IF this is Factory Alarm, there is NO "manual switch"
The Alarm is Armed & DisArmed by the Remote Keyless Entry FOB only
IF you do NOT have the Remote / FOB, & the Alarm is "Armed" you will need use of Dealer Scan Tool or locate the Remote / FOB & Unlock the Doors to DisArm

You can try:
Disconnect the Negative Battery Cable
Open Driver Door & LEAVE Open
Turn Ignition Switch ON & LEAVE ON
Reconnect Negative Battery Cable
Alarm may sound a few seconds
IF it does not shut off, then you will need Dealer Scan Tool or Remote / FOB

Did you have any other questions?
I see you have viewed my reply but have not selected a rating.
Rating does not incur any additional costs, it simply allows me to be compensated for my time here.
It also does not close the question, you can follow up at any time.
Thank you.
