I have a similar problem. Factory system. 1997 626. Remote is long gone. Just had to change battery. The alarm system comes on and prevents starting the car. I wasn't there but the guy who changed it tried the instructions in manual to disarm the system to no avail.
Is it possible to simply remove a fuse, etc, to disable the alarm system or do I need to call dealership? I thought I may try to purchase an aftermarket remote but I don't know if I will be able to sync it with the factory alarm system until I've successfully started the car.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
