Spider alarm / key question

I've done a search on this forum and read every post to do with keys and alarms, but haven't found anything that helps with my query.

I appear to have a 98 spider with no alarm - there's no telltale LED on the dashboard and no ultrasonics on the A pillar.
I'm guessing that this means that the car is an import?

I have 3 keys supplied with the car,

1 red key with an Alfa logo, an LED and a black rubber covering a button.
1 red key with a flat back and no buttons (the valet key??)
1 burgundy key with no buttons (the fabled master key?)

I'm not hugely worried about the lack of alarm but would dearly like remote locking - I've changed the battery in the keyfob (1xCR3032)
but there's still no response from the car.

Anyone have any ideas as to how best to cure this - I'd rather not end up with a seperate fob, so if it's possible to fix the Alfa key then that would be the best solution.
