My LT is an '03 so this should apply. Use reasonable caution. The fob you have may not be for your machine but if it turns the alarm on, it should also turn it off. You'll know if it dosen't do anything, you might want to start with a fresh battery in the fob.
There are 3 levels the alarm can be programed to, mine is the mid level and this applies, should yours be a lower or higher levels, well.......
With the bike parked and up on the center stand, depress the left button. The 4 way flasher should flash a couple of times and in about 30 seconds the little red LED on the right by the headlight adjust knob will flash, once every 10 seconds or so. Alarm is now armed. Should the bike be moved the alarm will sound (horn blows) and the 4 ways will flash for about 30 seconds and then reset, if it gets moved again, it'll do it again. The imobilized is also activated. This means you can't start it, even with the key if the alarm is armed.
To disarm (turn off) the alarm just depress the button on the fob and you should be good to go. The red LED wil stop flashing to indicate the alarm is off.
If you park the bike for an extended period of time (couple of weeks or more) with the alarm activated, it will be a good idea to have a trickle charger on to maintain the battery charge. It does use a small amount of battery to run it, enough to kill the battery in a couple of weeks, sooner if your battery is marginal.
I'm going to look for my manual for the alarm system and see about making you a copy. This is a sophisticated system and theres a lot more to it than what I can reasonably present here. No joy if the alarm system keeps you from starting it to get home.
