If I change my car battery, do I have to reset car alarm?

Hey guys,

so I have a '94 Toyota Land Cruiser. Gas prices and the economy being what it is, I haven’t driven it in a while. I recently went to start the car, and it wouldn’t turn over, just had a whirring sound, so I pop open the battery and see that some of the cells have dried out and exposed the plates, so I fill it up with distilled water, and charge it.

after charging it still won’t start, so I think I’ll have to change the battery. My question is, if I change the battery myself, will I have to get the alarm reset?

If you go to your local parts store and purchase one of these, you won’t have to worry about it.
