make sure the door trigger wire (green or purple depending on car) is seeing ground (green) or positive (purple). Basically make sure the alarm sees that a door is open. Turn the ignition on and then try to program the remote. Do you know the model # of the remote? Make sure it is compatable with the 791.

Nothing much that hasn't been covered. Does the system go feature programming mode, or valet mode using the valet switch?
If it just won't program the remote, then there may be a problem with the new remote itself. If it won't go into any programming mode, then you may have a problem with your ignition wire connection, which would mean the unit can't recognize when the key is being turned.
