If this is Factory Alarm:

Disarming The System
The system is disarmed if any of the following conditions is satisfied.

Unlock the doors by using the door lock key cylinder.

Unlock the doors by using the RKE transmitter.
.

IF the Alarm does NOT DisArm by the above, you can Ground the BROWN wire PIN 52, located at the ETACS
IF grounding the BROWN wire still does NOT DisArm the Factory Alarm, then there is a issue with the ETACS
>
You could also try:
Disconnect the Positive & Negative Battery Cables
"BRIEFLY" touch the Battery Cables together & reconnect to the Battery
Then UNLOCK Doors

.
