Mein Auto: '02 BMW 525i
So the other day the alarm went off during a heavy rain my 02 525 I thought nothing of it. When I got into the car next I noticed the rear floor boards were wet and I could hear water sloshing in the rear ac. Yesterday I used the shop vac to try to dry up as much water as I could and then left the car in the sun. Well after I did that the alarm went off about three times over a 4 hour period. The alarm usually sounds and the lights flash but then it goes silent and the lights stop after about 5-10 seconds but then they start up again about a minute later till I unlock the car

Also sometimes when I lock / unlock it does not chirp but the lights flash.

Just now the alarm went off 3 times within 15 mintues I unplugged the hood sensor and it went off again about 2 minutes after that.

I have been locking it with the double lock press and I see the red light flash to confirm but it still goes off.

Any ideas? Car battery? The water that was in the floor boards get it to some connector?
