velux vse skylight won't open with remote

I have a Velux VSE skylight that is approximately 15 years old. The remote broke so I purchased a replacement WLR 160 50 02. When I press the up or down button on the remote the red light on the window goes on but the window doesn't move. If I press the safety switch on the window after pressing a button on the remote the window will go up or down with the safety switch only. Any ideas what could be wrong? Is there a spot on the window that I can match up to the code inside the remote? I couldn't find it.

Welcome to the forums.

You're using the WLR160 wireless controller to control what ?
In other words... what is the receiver.

I'm also not following you with red light on the window.
Some pictures would sure be helpful.

Change the batteries in the skylight.
