    Hi, All of the sudden my bmw alarm started beeping for no reason. Sometimes I lock the vehicle and after a few minutes it starts beeping, othertimes it is immediately after locking it. If I leave it unlocked it won't go off. I tried doing a second press of the lock button on the fob to turn off...
  2. Z Series
    I have a 2001 Z3 Coupe that was experiencing a battery draining issue. As long as I would run it every few days it didn't drain the battery. I'm running into an issue now that when I connect the battery the aftermarket alarm immediately goes off, and with the keyfob I can turn it off. But I'm...
  3. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello, This is my first time owning a BMW and ran into some nonsense. I bought my 2017 F31 last year and it's still with CPO warranty. The car's alarm goes off randomly, so I visited the dealership to fix the issue. However, they said they will charge me for $230 for the diagnostics fee...

    I have a BMW F10 520d 2013. Been having a problem for a long time with the alarm just going off when the car is locked. Battery got changed. Have seen 2 people on the matter who said they can’t see any errors. A few months ago I played about with the metal part of the hood switch and it was...

  7. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Has anyone done a Remote Start/Alarm install on their E30 ? I have a 1990 325i and I am considering installing a remote start/alarm system. I was wondering if anyone here has done it before and can offer any insight.
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I ditched the hood sensor years ago, but not long ago the alarm just went off driving down the road. Pulled over. Nothing turned it off. Went home and it stopped. For a few weeks. During that time I noticed when I locked/unlocked I got no chirp. Now it’s going off again. And it chirps again w...
  9. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I have a 1995 540i with a 3 button remote. I have not found many explanations on how to pair this remote to the car. It is not the separate key fob, the buttons are built into the key that turns the ignition. The power locks do work, just not remotely. I have changed the battery and the red LED...
  10. 8 Series - E31 (1989 - 1999)
    1994 840ci I am trying to remove the alarm module. Where is it located? I was told passenger side under carpet? I am not sure and don't want to start removing parts that don't need to be removed. Any advice helps.
  11. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Thank you for your time!!! My rear passenger door is halfway opening at random times a few times now. It's where my 4yr old sits so I need a fix asap. I have the child lock on so the inside handle still cannot operate/open the door but the outside one works fine. The problem triggers the...
  12. G30 (2017 - Current)
    I picked up my 2018 540i this weekend. I noticed that my Valentine 1 radar detector constantly triggers the laser alarm. At present, I've disabled the laser detector feature, but I'd prefer to keep it active if anyone has a solution. I have Driving Assistance & Assistance Plus Packages as...

  14. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Good day, My 2000 Z3 M3 Roadster has an alarm problem that I need help with. After exiting the car I attempt to set the alarm and within a couple of seconds the alarm starts to go off. This happens every time. The flashing LED indicates 3 flashes which means a glass breakage alarm. Can...

    I have a new to me 2011 328i convertible. The little red globe under mirror does not blink when locked. Also I can't seem to make the alarm sound. What should I check!
  16. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Hi guys. I was wondering if anyone experienced a weak acoustic sound from their car. When I lock and unlock my car (x1) the acoustic chirp is fainter than it was previously. The panic siren is also weaker. What could be causing this?
  17. G30 (2017 - Current)
    I picked up a 540 last Monday and I've been experiencing odd behavior with the alarm. When I get out the car close the door and lock with comfort access the alarm will immediately go off. This has happened to me 4 times now. Only thing I can think of is soft close doors, maybe they aren't...

    This is a credit to Bimmer tech I started searching the Internet for information on how to upgrade my 2008 BMW 328i E93 equipped with the old CCC navigation system myself since I'm a car guy and tech geek, working in the tech industry for longer than some of the kids writing posts on how to do...
