HI,
I am very sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question
Hopefully you have it by now. But if not, this is what you need to do:
disconnect the negative battery cable. Now insert the key into the ignition and turn to the on position and have driver door open. After at least 60 seconds, reconnect the negative cable to the battery(with key still in on position).
The alarm will sound for 60 seconds and then stop. At that point, cycle the key off, then crank it. It should crank now

HI,
Hmmm, have not had one that the above method didnt shut the alarm off. That is the only toyota/lexus method I know of. Let me opt out and see if another expert knows an alternate method

If it's a factory alarm exit the vehicle close all doors Lock the vehicle with the key from the drivers door key slot , then unlock manually withkey and alarm should go off
