    I'm going down to the dealers tomorow morning so i'll let you know when I get back if it works or not. I'm starting to think there may be something wrong with the alarm if none of the previous owners bothered to get a fob for it.

    Fingers crossed it will work, and its programmed by a "old computer" as the guy in service put it lol but i've done some research and I think it may be programmable by any sigma dealer? Its coded electronically like transponder chips so theres nowt we can do about it.

    Just been to the dealers this morning after waiting nearly two weeks to get an appointment and they have said they ordered the wrong keyfob!

    They are trying to get another one sent out as soon as possible so I should be recieving a phone call very soon.

    Anyway just say the alarm doesn't work is it relatively easy to remove from the car? All the wires on the plug are black so could somebody point me to a thread with abit of information on how to remove.

    Thanks
