I just got my TC FM yesterday and had the scion factory alarm installed. But everytime I arm or disarm the alarm it beeps extremely loud. Is there a way to decrease the volume of the horn or even disable it while arming/disarming?

Nothing in the alarm manual?

That's the alarm install manual and it says that the horn should not sound at all on arm/disarm. So it means that the dealer did not go throught the checklist after they installed the alarm. Go back, kick ass.

Thanks for help. I was wondering if I can bring it in any dealer. I bought it at a dealer near my home, but I go to school 100 miles away, so I wont have time to get it back to the dealer I bought it with for a couple of weeks, and that would suck.

If it's a dealer-installed option, you may be out of luck. Technically speaking, dealer-installed options are NOT warranted by the manufacturer -- for those of you who will doubt me, read the purchase/finance agreement carefully next time -- although they try hard to keep you from knowing this. Call the dealer that you want to go to and ask them.

Or you can "forget" to mention it was dealer-installed, just tell them that it's a factory alarm and it annoys the hell out of you.

Being the 3rd owner, I don't know if my tC's alarm is official or aftermarket. It did have an annoying loud horn-beep every time it was armed or disarmed. Eventually I found a little button under the dash, with a blue LED on it. Holding down that button while turning off the car silenced the annoying honk!.
