the factory alarm remote may need to be re-programmed it olnly involves a series of ingnition turns and button pushes on the remote but you'll need to contact the dealership for specific instructions

The manual that came with the car tells you how to reprogram the remote , and if you don't have one the manual can be downloaded from in PDF form.
