    I have just bought a second hand Autotrail Apache 700, made in 2002.
    It has a "Sigma" alarm system, when I first bought the MH 3 weeks ago, the fob, to, automatically open, close doors and arm alarm worked ok.
    Yesterday, I noticed a tiny (2inch x 2inch) key pad stuck to the inside windscreen, in front of the driver, not knowing what it was (the previous owner had not said) I touched it with my finger, and a red light flashed.
    Oh dear since then the automatic key fob will not work !

    Just guessing......try locking with the key then try unlocking with the fob.

    This is where it gets sticky.......i bet you dont have the pin code ?

    The pad is a manual over-ride if you dont have the correct fob or the fob battery goes flat and you have to open the door with the key.

    If you dont have the code an authorised sigma dealer can over ride and reset it.

    Looks like you need to enter the 4 digit code withing 20 seconds confirmed with a red flash between each key press or it ignores it completely.
    Pressing just one key then doing nothing will not arm/disarm the alarm.

    Three wrong pin attempts and the system is sent to sleep for 30 minutes.

    It looks like you have a different problem
