ES 300. Resetting the alarm. Car won't start

I set the alarm off by mistake. Now I try to start the car it will not start. The red alarm light continues to flash. How do I reset.

Do you

Remove ignition key from ignition switch. Close all doors, engine hood and luggage compartment door (trunk lid).

Using key, lock left or right front door (all doors are locked through key-interlinked lock operation) or lock all of the doors using remote key less entry system.

After doors are locked the anti-theft indicator will light continuously for about 30 seconds and then stop.

Durning the 30 seconds the doors cannot be locked or unlocked using door lock control switch, and luggage compartment door cannot be opened with luggage compartment door opener switch.

After the 30 seconds unlock left or right front door using key.

Unlock all doors using remote keyless entry system.

Insert key in ignition switch and turn to ON position (this is operative only when anti-theft system has not been triggered).

Let me know if the helps
