    Our newly purchased 1992 Hymer has a Gemini alarm/immobilser fitted but it came without any remote controls to activate it, The only way we can switch it on is to access the bonnet via 2 locks then we have to use a key to turn the alarm on, as you can imagine it is not ideal! We contacted the company who eventually got back to us today telling us that the factory in Italy was shut down for 2 weeks. This means we won't be able to get a remote control before our trip to Germany.
    Any ideas?

    When we bought our Burstner there was only one remote for the Meta alarm. After contacting Meta's agents in this country it appeared as if we would have to have the alarm replaced as it was not practical for us to visit their closest branch several miles from us.

    Accordingly we went to a local auto electrics company with a good reputation. As it turned out they were able to remove the alarm unit and send it to London to be recoded with two new alarm fobs - a lot cheaper than having a whole new system fitted. We took the van in on a Monday morning and had it back on the Wednesday afternoon.

    It would be worth having a word with a similar company in your area to see what they can advise.
