    Hi Folks.
    Previously my partner had the same year & model & though we're in Vermont where cars rust to bits, we got lucky enough to find another which came here from CA. & got well treated before rust could set in.
    We're very happy with it but for several things:
    1 - The dome light doesn't come on at all;
    2 - It throws an evap code every so often;
    3 - It has the central locking system & the alarm stickers - but came with no remote(s).

    I'm guessing it uses the same ones as the other '98 did as it has no button near the OBD plug - and we have good remotes left over from when the other car went for parts.
    They are the Alps 88036ae060 & look like the pic here:
    But, when trying to get the car into programming mode it is 100% unresponsive - leading me to think that system was disconnected or is otherwise messed up.

    I tried the programming steps from the couple of different alarm types I found & none of it made any difference.

    Since the alarm must also use door switches I'm guessing these may be related somehow...
    In my searching I've read a bunch of stuff about fuses & different systems & I remain uncertain of how to proceed.

    I will appreciate any guidance in these matters very much !!
