Mein Auto: 1997 Z3 1.9 m44
Question I can't stop my alarm system!

Hi folks,

Found some threads with people that had similar problems to mine but this one's different. It's a 1997 z3 roadster no wireless locking, just standard key.

My roof had been leaking for some time so the carpets had to come out to drain the wells and dry the foam underneath. To do this, the centre console had to come out (complete with radio). I've put it all back together but no matter what I do the car alarm goes wild every time I open a door. I've used a special key on a box inside the engine bay to turn off the actual alarm, but the indicators are still going nuts every time I try to open the door. It's not immobilized or anything.

I've tried bonnet/boot sensors, there's no tilt sensors in the passenger footwell or boot.

I'm really stuck here if anyone can help out!
