Hi friends,

I just had a BMW alarm installed. When I press the middle button of the remote key to arm the alarm, the lights flash but it doesn't beep. Does your alarm beep?

The alarm beeps and the lights flash when I disarm the alarm.

Just wondering if its a programming problem.

It should beep along with flashing the lights when the alarm is armed. I would have it checked out.

It's programmable by the dealer. There are separate settings for visual and audible cues for arm and for disarm (four options).

Personally, I don't do an audible disarm cue so as to not call attention to the car when I'm approaching.

Thanks friends. I will take the car back and talk to the tech.
