    Thats exactly how it should work mate. The alarm only disarms with the remote or transponder signal of the keys in the ignition, wouldn;t be a very good alarm otherwise

    Have you tried resyncing the remote with the ignition on and pressing either button?

    Get out the car and lock the doors. Unlock the door, get in and close door, put key in ignition and turn to the second position, hold in either button till the doors lock and unlock, take key out, job done.

    If that doesn't work its probably the battery terminals on the key chip, try folding a bit of paper and putting it between the inner casing of the key and the back of the battery, helps it keep pressed in properly...

    Good good, very common on these keys, you can solder them but it'll just go again so the paper trick seems to be the best solution.
