Ok guys - forget the red dot. It has nothing to do with it. There is a set of contacts near the locks on the front doors. These contacts are not making good contact. Just replace it or clean them. They are used to arm and disarm the alarm.
The red dot is only plastic. It has nothing to do with the alarm system.
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave
