alarm malfunction

Hello everyone! I replaced my battery in my entry remote and the alarm will not arm now.The lock,unlock,trunk and panic button works fine.I am wondering if I need to have the remote reprogram.If it is anyone out there could help me out with this alarm issue I would gladly appreciate it.

alarm malfunction

Thanks for the help!I checked all my doors to see if they were closed and one was slightly opened.After doing that the remote started arming the alarm again.The good news is your BMW doors does not have to be fully closed in order for the remote to lock the doors.
