Compustar remote start help!

Okay so when I got my truck from the auction awhile back it came with a compustar remote (pictured) and I loved having it and now that its getting cold out I would like to have the feature work again BECAUSE my dumba$$ cut the antenna cord thinkin it was something pointless and was for a cell or something, so I tried splicing the wires back together with no fix so I then went and bought a new wire and that didn't work, is there something I have to do to reprogram? Did I frie the brain some how?

if all you did was cut the wire the new wire should have fixed it ?

I had an antenna issue also with a pinched wire on my viper ,, after I got that situated it worked fine ,,

Okay so I tried the reprogramming and it goes into the mode but the regime won't do anything so my guess is I need a new antenna
