Unhappy Problem with Battery change on 2003 alarm fob

My alarm fob began to act intermittently, light staying on at times and sometimes not operating the alarm. I decided to change the battery. Installed new battery within seconds of removing old one but now the fob will not control the alarm although it now responds correctly. The led on remote flashes as normal but alarm does not activate. Is there a procedure to reactivate the fob without having to recode both fobs? My spare remote works perfectly.

Update
I decided to try by holding both buttons on remote until led stops flashing, ( near the bike), then release both buttons, led comes on continuously then press A button and led goes out. Having done this the remote now activates and deactivates the alarm correctly.

Hope this helps somebody else.
Regards
