    This button is installed under and slightly left of the steering column. One time I set off the alarm and the button flashes in sync with the horn while alarm is going off. How do I determine how it works and how it interfaces with the alarm system?

    it may be ur "valet button" if u dont have ur alarm fob, u can put ur key in the ignition and push that button to disable the alarm... that would be my guess.

    That sounds very likely. I just didn't get any clarification on it when i bought it preowned. I'm also having programming my key FOB, didn't know if this was a missing link or something

    Unfortunately i didn't buy from a Toyota dealer and they seem rather incompetent.
