I don't have the switch like Dking078 on my 97 528i - but I did unplug the one I have like QSilver7 and the alarm still went off randomly shortly after. Is there another hood sensor i should look for? or is that difference in years?

Otherwise can I disconnect the interior and be done with it?
What battery did you replace? The car's battery (in the trunk) or the key's battery?
