Is this the OEM alarm or an aftermarket one added to the vehicle?

It is extremely rare for the OEM to be to blame.

I don't know it's an alarm
Toyota Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Auto Technician replied 8 months ago

This alarm, tell me what is going off. Is the horn honking solid or pulsing?

Are the exterior lamps flashing?

Will it crank and start?

Any out of place wiring or lights or switches on the drivers side below the steering column or above the driver's feet?
