: Factory Alarm too loud

02-21-2008, 10:23 PM
Hi, Any idea how to adjust the factory alarm on the e36? It came with the car when I bought it. The two beep alarm sound is very loud, Is it possible to tune it down? It is a two button remote with FCC ID: A269ZUA111 and BMW logo on the back.

Thanks in advance,

Succulent E36

Lock the car with the remote, then hold both buttons down for 3 to 4 seconds and the lights on the remote will flash. Unlock the car with the remote and the sound is gone. Press both buttons again to get the sound back.

It makes noise?! Ha someone disconnected the Alarm in mine. All that happens is my lights flash. Anyone know how to take care of that?

Thanks for the tip. I am glad someone finally knows about this. It is working with the sound off now, but with the sound off, will the alarm sound for a real break-in? I probably leave the lock and unlock sound on for now but at least I know how to operate it. ;)
