That's an error tone. The system is not communicating with the remote.
My ex once told me I have a perfect face for radio.

UPDATE: 5806v is on the bench, not sure if a need a new one (hardware failure) investing into another one or new installation which hellishly expensive as this unit is pretty much unused. However if a new unit is needed then I want to make sure I have made the decision based upon a solid test method.
Just need to understand if I my method for checking if this is working (at any level) is solid. so then i can make an informed judgement call.
Test environment: (tested continuity for the connected = all good)
5806v - 6 pin harness connected to ground and power (12VDC)
Control console connected
Remote new batteries (2x 2016) - leds working
1. connect power ground (nothing noticeable) - press lock on remote: get 5 orange flashes and a tone (error - not connecting)
2. control centre - no cigar either (no led activity)
Do I need to connect anything else jus to test the unit ? should i connect the siren and LED as the parkers (or is this effort not going to provide additional insight)
is there something I should be checking at the board level, resetting or is the above indicative of an issue worthy of replacement?

Do you have the ignition wire connected? What about a door trigger? These are both required to program remotes.
Have you tried both remotes? Verify the FCC ID numbers match on the back of the remotes as well as the antenna.
To test the parking light output, I've used a simple test light before. If you get no response from either remote, check continuity through the antenna lead as these wires are tiny (maybe 24 gauge) and break easily.
You can also buy a cheap RF tester to make sure the remotes have output.

Hi
This issue as i see it is there is zero feedback from the unit at all - so the next step of pairing maybe fruitless
no ignition wire (or simulation) on the test bench
Door trigger is to ground - when open ( so i can set this up)
check continuity through the antenna lead (all ok - my first step)

To simulate ignition, connect 12 volts to the ignition wire. If you still can't get the remotes to program, it's more likely the antenna than both remotes. You can look online for a replacement, otherwise, maybe the main unit is faulty.
