Sometimes on the toyotas you can turn the alarm off by opening the driver door and manually locking it, shutting the door and then unlocking it with the key.
If that doesnt work then the following will work:
Turn the key in the ignition to the on position, remove the negative battery cable, wait 60 seconds, reinstall the negative cable to the battery. The alarm will go on for around 60 seconds and stop. Now crank engine.
