Change the battery in the remote.. Also remove the back seat & make sure the antenna has not come loose from the box & maybe crimp the ground on the antenna plug a little so there is better contact

Just bought a used 540 (1995) 6 speed with the factory EWS key. Question: Sometimes, no matter how many times I push the button, the car will not arm! This is very frustrating when you are standing in the pouring rain trying to arm the car, and nothing happens. I end up locking it with the key, and no alarm. will this programing step fix the problem?
