First check the battery in the transmitter. If the battery is OK and your system is code learning, try reprogramming your transmitter. Your owner's manual contains the transmitter programming procedure. If this does not work, you may need to replace your transmitter.
What kind of battery does my transmitter use?
Omega transmitters use a GP-23A 12 volt battery. This battery is also known as a GP lighter battery as it is used in many electric lighters.
Where can I buy batteries for my transmitter?
Many electronics stores carry the correct battery.
If my alarm is armed or triggered and my transmitter doesn't work, how can I disable my system so I can drive my car?
You need to perform an emergency override. Most Omega alarms can be disabled by entering the vehicle, turning the ignition to the run position, then pressing the alarm's valet switch once (Some Omega systems feature a secret coded override. If this is the case, consult your owner's manual). The alarm should disarm. To prevent the alarm from accidentally rearming while the transmitter is inoperable, press and hold the valet switch for 3 seconds to put the alarm in valet mode. The alarm should respond by chirping twice and turning on the LED status indicator.
Where is my valet switch?
There is no way to be certain because the location of the valet switch was chosen by the installer. It is usually installed somewhere under the driver's side of the dash. Please refer to the pictures below to identify the type of valet switch you have.
The operating range for my system has decreased over time. How can I solve this problem?
Check the battery in your transmitter. If the battery is draining, it will weaken the signal being sent to your keyless entry/ security system. If you replace the battery and the problem does not go away, your system may need to be serviced.
Can someone program an additional transmitter to my security system without my knowledge?
Yes, adding transmitters to any system is surprisingly easy. Unfortunately, the majority of keyless entry and security systems on the market today are vulnerable to this type of attack. Omega's patented Unauthorized Transmitter Alert is the only available means to protect your vehicle and its contents from this ever growing threat. Unauthorized Transmitter Alert tells you how many transmitters are programmed to your system every time you turn on your ignition.
