Mein Auto: 2002 BMW 540i Sport

The interior button doesn't open the doors and you cannot set the alarm at all. The dealer was baffled and reset the system.
A week later the car seemed to go into kill mode where the car would not start at all. It has been it the shop for a week now and they are still scratching their heads. My alarm problem has been going on for over a year now.

I seem to have a similar issue with my 2002 bmw 540i. It keeps triggering the alarm then you have to enter a code to deactivate, after you can start the car and all is fine. I have taken it to BMW service 4 times now and we are still looking for the solution. Theyt tried replacing the NAV unit as the dash and Nav screen are on the same ibus connection back to the main computers.

I was wondering if you have found a solution to your problem?
