Had this old 3G fob lying around from a previous eBay purchase so I thought I'd add it to the Touring alarm system as I had the glovebox out to cure the damp footwell.

After flicking the programmer switch I pressed the red button but it flashed instead of being continuous and it wouldn't accept it onto the system. Bad battery I thought and replaced it with a new one but it did the same thing.

I then decided to compare it to the working 3G fob and they seem to have entirely different electronics.

Fob A is the dodgy one, Fob B is the functioning one.

Could this be for a different, possibly non-BMW, Gemel / Serpi Star alarm?
