Mein Auto: 2000 740iL & 2002 745Li

I am having an issue with my 740iL Please help if you can..... really annoying to keep being woken up by the alarm in the middle of the night. PS - the last time this happen I came out only to notice that ALL of the windows were down as if I had put the key in and activated them to do so. Please advise anyone who knows what's going on here!

Thanks in advance!

Mein Auto: 740i
The alarm sensor in the front gets crapped up over time. My 740i would go off always at the wrong time; the dealer disconnected the front sensor. I don't know exactly where it is, under the hood I think.
