: 2005 X5 Alarm issues

I have been having issues intermittenly over the past year with my alarm. It locks and the alarm is set as normal, but every so often when I go to unlock the car the alarm goes off. What makes it worse is, it is very hard to turn it off. I end up hitting all the buttons and eventually it will turn off. :mad: The car is still under warranty and we have taken it to the dealer more than 5 times with multiple parts being replaced. I think we are both (BMW and me) at our wits end.

Anyone else hit this issue? What was fix? Any suggestions?

I remember reading something about this on x5world. You might try doing a search there.

you disarm the alarm with the remote, it unlocks the drivers door and when you open the alarm , it makes the noise ?

I hit the unlock button on the key fob and the alarm goes off. I do not open the door, I am usually 10-15 feet from the car when I unlock it.
