    Hi Guys
    I am new to this forum. Please bear with me.

    I still have the original Sigma 3T-EWS alarm Imobiliser. My remote control alarm fobs have stopped woring and am using keys to lock and unlock at the moment. From the guides, it looks like I need new remote fobs. Replacements from main dealers are extremely pricey. I see similar (1 button) Sigma fobs on Ebay. My question is how do I re-program these replacements to work with my car alarm or is this re-programming a main dealer?
    Thanks

    Thanks.
    Was wondering if I could just get second hand fobs and get it re-programmed instead of replacing it as it is an old car. From what you have written, perhaps not.

    3T was good in its time but sadly lacking nowadays. As it says in the guide most people (including me) remove them and fit a later type 3G system or an aftermarket system. Your car is independently immobilised by the EWS chip-key system anyway.
