I've got a 2002 Sequoia that a buddy found for me to use while I'm in the States for a few months. Just drove it today for the first time and keep running into problems with the alarm/theft-prevention system.

Apparently, I can only lock the vehicle with the remote fob or it will go nuts. If I move the wrong way while sitting in the house and the panic button gets squashed in my pocket (I assume), it goes nuts.

Is there any way to just shut it off?

how sure are you that its a factory alarm, could be an aftermarket unit that was designed to work with the factory fobs. check under the dash for a load of wire spaghetti that is indicative of an aftermarket unit

It does have a factory alarm and I haven't seen anything to make me think there's an aftermarket unit.

My wife never had problems with it, so I took the button out of the Panic circuit on my fob and I haven't had any trouble with it since.
