Most alarms need to be sync'd to the fobs and if either the ecu or fob has been out of juice for a long time it's poss either may need doing.

Find the part/alarm model no and google. Sure someone will have the details on how to do it.

is it a single button key fob or 2 button ?

here's a procedure to try.

Sit in the driver's seat and make sure all the doors are closed.

Insert the key in the ignition switch.

## Switch on/off 8 times WITHIN 10 SECONDS ##

The sequence is actually on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on.

## At the 8th 'on' leave it in the 'on' position and all the car will lock (central locking) ##

Now press any button on the key fob.

The car will unlock.

## Switch off the ignition and you're done ##

obviously yours is not fitted to a car so where it says ## "turn ignition key to ON" ## you'll have to connect the wire that connects to an ignition switched live to a +12v and when it says ## "ignition to OFF"## then disconnect that wire from the +12v.
