Does this sound like it is working right. The reason I ask is because on the alarm remote it has two buttons lock/arm panic and unlock/disarm with led light. Sorry for dumb question new to BMW. Thanks
Very common problem with the Z3. Does the vehicle has the original radio? There are 5 alarm switches on the Z3, hood, each door, trunk and radio, if any of those are not functioning as intended you'll get the three chirps you mention. If the radio has not been replaced with an aftermarket radio, I will take a look at the hood switch. Send me an e-mail at agsofia at att dot net I'll send you pictures of locations of the switches.
