I have a 1993 New Yorker 5th Ave edition, and the car battery recently died. There was enough juice that the lights and dashboard still lit up, and the factory installed theft control system light was flashing "SET". We replaced the battery, and while the remote works for the keylocks and trunk, it doesn't appear to be enabling the alarm, as when I lock the doors, the light on the dash flashes "SET" for about 10 seconds, and then goes off, and I can unlock the door with the key and start the car and drive without any alarm going off, whereas it used to go off if I unlocked it using only the key instead of the remote. Is there something I need to do to make my alarm system work correctly again?

..... I can unlock the door with the key and start the car and drive without any alarm going off, .....
Yeah that's what is supposed to happen. There are disarm switches mounted to the back of the key cyliders. Roll down your window, get out shut the door and arm it with your remote. Reach through the window and open the door from the inside. Your alarm should go off. Then disarm it with the key in the door.
