Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla
If you have a push button key or remote try locking it then unlocking it. If that isn't applicable try using the key on all the locks on the outside of the car, do the same, lock then unlock all the locks including the trunk. How long did you leave the cables off the battery. And did you pull both cables off or just one? Security systems sometimes had circuits that ground out separately and had large capacitors capable of sustaining power along with the Safety Restraint System for a matter of minutes. Sometimes computers won't reset until after 20-30 minutes with no power.
I am also assuming your issue is that the alarm is gong off and that you are not having a security light on the dash, with a no start issue, or an issue with the security code for the radio.

If your car has an alarm with a separate remote, it is a separate system and it is probably self-arming. When you lock the doors with the key central lock, the alarm gets armed by the RAV4 being OFF and the door locking action. When you unlock the doors with the key, the alarm is still armed because the key is not comunicating with the alarm just the cars factory keyless system.

you may have to disconnect the battery for a minute or so ,this will reset the alarm. check your remote it does have a battery in it. otherwise you have to look for a fuse somewhere under the dash close to the fuse box.each one is diff. depending if it original toyota or aftermarket alarm.
