Default 1998 Camry - VIP RS3000 Alarm problem

Hi folks, I am hoping that someone here has had something similiar happen to
them, or some experience with this system, because I have a weird problem:
The other day I bought a 98 Camry used from a dealer, and it happened to
come with the VIP RS3000 alarm system and remotes. When I attempt to arm the
alarm by pushing the top button on the remote (as the manual instructs),
nothing happens. According to the manual, it should lock the doors, make a
chirp sound, flash the lights, and arm the alarm... none of these things
happen. I also followed the procedure in the manual to turn on "Automatic
Arming", but that also does nothing.
I have done some basic troubleshooting.. I know the remotes work because I
can cause the alarm to go into "panic mode" by holding the button for more
than 2 seconds, and it is functional when reprogramming certain systems, as
it should be. Just incase, I replaced the battery in the remote anyway, with
no change. I also re-did the "remote programming" (telling the alarm system
which remotes to listen to), just incase it was communicating wrong or
something, and that also did not help.
So... as far as I can tell, every function of the alarm system works fine
besides the actual arming and protecting of the car, through either of the
available methods; anyone have any ideas? I would love to be able to use the
alarm, or even just use the built in keyless entry system, but I am stumped.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Sorry, I meant to say the car is a 1996 - although I don't believe it makes
a difference in the alarm system.

Do a search on here - they have a fax back service --- I've posted the phone
number several times - and don't have it handy now.
