Minus Alfa security System

I went to get my spare key battery replaced and via some time with the owner manual noticed somethings.

The original button key (red) dosn't do anything like what the manual stipulates, and the central locking is worked with a black transmitter labeled TX-111.
ONe of these works, the other I got batteries replaced and have attempted to relearn but to no avail. I believe the transmitter is one from this outfit
Dynamco - Innovative Vehicle Solutions: Products > Remote Controls (ref RM111)

Now I pulled the cover out for the security over ride key sot and it is removed. Just an empty hole
The Key check on dash light goes off to be expected each time key is inserted.

What do you think is happening here, and how could I relearn my other remote


Also isnt it supposed to put all windows up or down when the button is held down?

Not all cars were fitted with an alarm at the factory .. dependent on the country. UK yes, some european countries no. NZ??

UK cars with an alarm don't get an override switch .. insurance company demand apparently.

And early cars with red keys don't get window activation, etc. Just lock-unlock doors and activate alarm (if there is one).

Key Code light is the immobiliser system ... all cars have this. So that's fine.

Sounds like you have an aftermarket central locking system ... could the original if died and this was the fix?
