Hello. Lets see what we can get figured out together? Do you know what time of alarm is installed on your vehicle?

Expert:  MDT-89 replied 1 year ago.

If not we can try to work around it. Most of the 03 Toyota models were equipped with a VIP security system. The main component for the system is installed near the steering column. To get to it you will need to remove a few panels under the steering column. Once you get to that particular ecu you can simply unplug it to disable the system. I hope that helps...

Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”
Because the Factory Alarm "arms" with Locking the Doors & "disarms" with Unlocking the Doors, there is NO way to "disable" the Factory Alarm, without extensive "rewiring" of the Security System of the vehicle.
IF you do NOT want the Factory Alarm to "arm", do NOT use the Remotes or the Door Switch to Lock the vehicle.
Lock Doors "manually"
You can Unlock with the Remote or Door Switch, but do not Lock with the Remote or Door Switch.
