Question about Toyota Sequoia
There is a switch in side the door that activates when the door is opened with the key or the remote, this switch is part of the door latch, it sends a signal that the car has been opened with a key or a remote key FOB, and this turns off the security system, if this switch doesn't function correctly and the signal doesn't get sent to the security system electronic control module then it thinks the car is being broken into and sets off the alarm, the dealer can scan the security system and watch the signal from the switch to verify the loss of signal, which I am 99% sure is the problem, the switch can be replaced but the door panel must come off and the inside of the door disassembled to access the switch, about a 2 hour job by a professional Toyota technician.

Isn't that the purpose of an alarm?
Is there a problem you have not indicated?
