Clean the battery holder, then try a new battery, they don't last forever (my record is a week).  You will have to try it about 5 times in slow succession because it's a rolling-code.

Always worth programming a spare fob into the car, even if it's a mate's car.  You can reprogram the alarm to any 2 fobs once it's turned off.

I'm assuming it's a 1-button alarm however, I don't do 2 button (far too new-fangled for me)
