Then I noticed It seems to be only happening when I lock the doors, If i leave it unlocked while its parked its fine...

    Being stranded at work for an hour :thumbdwn:, I've read the wiki and the forums, and I don't see an answer yet. Here's the facts: - I drove my car to work with no issues - 8 hours later, I unlocked my car using the key - When I opened the driver's side door, all the windows opened fully (not...

    Hi All, My 328I came pre-wired for the BMW alarm system. If I purchase the alarm kit and install it, will the dealer program it for me or will they not like the fact that I installed it? I am a mechanic so I have no problem installing it. Thanks.

    Hi guys! I’m from Hungary and I’ve just bought a 2003 330Ci M Clubsport. It hasn’t got alarm system so I googled how to install the original BMW system. I read on a lot a forum that the alarm system is pre-wired in all of the E46. I checked the tilt sensor’s connector in the trunk and the...
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello there! I'm a new owner of a 20120 320i, and when I asked the dealer about an alarm system, their response was it doesn't have one, and they can't put a factory one in this model (even if I pay), and that I would be able to get an after market one myself. Having never had an alarm system...
  8. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I recently purchased a BMW Z4 alarm system for my 2004 Z4 and installed it myself. I had my local dealer activate the system and test it. It did not work and the dealer did not have any idea why. The dealer did confirm that the alarm system I bought was the correct part for my car. This is...
  9. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I bought a 1995 540i a couple of years ago and it has begun to "let me down" without warning. I hit the security off button on the key and I receive the normal "Beep Beep" that the security system is off, the doors unlock, etc. When I try to start the car, it cranks, but the fuel system does not...

    I think i screwed something up. Yesterday I attempted to start my with the key as normal and my hand slipped; sort of "bumping the ignition". I tried to turn the key again to start and the ignition was locked. I turned the key all the way back and attemped to start again. The car started and...

    Good evening! First post. After eight years in the wilderness I'm this close to returning to the BMW fold with a 2011 335xi and I need some advice. I'm not a huge audiophile, and the standard audio system sounded fine to me. (Keep in mind I'm coming from a 2004 Honda Accord with the standard...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello all, I have a 2002 330 Convertible and am considering putting the alarm on it. Q: Is it standard when the alarm is installed and I get out and activate it for it to roll the windows up and put the top up automatically or is that an additional option? Thank you, CD

    Hi, I have a 325i (2005 model). I recently disconnected the battery. After I hooked the battery up, I noticed a blinking red light on the factory stereo. Whenever I turn the engine off, the red light stays blinking. I didn't have this problem before. Is there any way to disable the red...
  15. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi All, Not sure if there is a thread out there on this topic (did my best to go through all the threads). But basically I am having a dickens of a time getting my trunk to latch when I close it. I know there had initially been some difficulty with the aftermarket alarm system that was...
