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.

How do you know if the car alarm remote battery is flat?

If you know for sure that the alarm is functioning correctly, but the key-fob doesn't operate - either the fob is faulty or the battery is flat. Replace the battery - if the fob operates the alarm, then the battery was flat. If the alarm still doesn't operate, then the fob is faulty. You can always test the battery with a multimeter - although you may have to dismantle the remote to get at the battery !

Your 04 voxhall alarm keeps going off on its own?

The most common cause is that the rechargeable battery in the alarm siren is failing, giving a low voltage to the alarm system. When the voltage from he battery drops below a certain level the alarm system thinks someone is trying to disable the alarm by disconnecting the battery. As it thinks someone is trying to disable the alarm, it sets the alarm off.
