    I had a look I took the siren off its got a sticker sealed on it still. It says 1992 seal warrenty. Looks like this is a Bmw fitted alarm system cause the car was made in 1992.

    I joined the gemal serpi star forum and there saying its a Bmw factory fitted alarm. But there a led light coming out of the middle air vent.

    BMW used Gemel alarms, they were badged as a BMW alarm but are a Gemel Serpi Star, it looks as if someone has replaced the fob on yours with a Gemel aftermarket fob that can be "universally" used on some of their alarms.

    I got a Bmw booklet here it says a diffrent way to program the fob. Might be worth a try.

    Press both buttons simultaneously and hold, the LED should flash quickly, after 10 seconds the LED light goes out, release both buttons, the LED will now stay on constantly, press and release any button and the LED will go out.

    If your remote does not do the above than you have the fixed code variety, this remote control is no longer available.

    If you have the old oblong unit with a corner cut out of it we are no longer able to supply this product (note that later versions of the oblong remote are self coding and the above remote can be programmed into your alarm system).

    My alarm fob self learning which is good news. Just needs sorting out still but I've found a box alarm somewere else in the car with the model number on it will check that this week and see the exact model.
