    Hey guys. Is it true that an after-market car alarm/security system will not work on a my car? I need a security system and BMW said my car isn't wired for it but can't get one installed somewhere else because it won't be compatible with the car.

    I posted this on another old E46 thread which talked about the same thing but it had not been addressed since 2010 so I thought I would post a fresh string for some help. I have a 1999 328i that will not turn over the starter even though everything else runs fine. Here is what I have done...

    I blew my head gasket and just completed the repair. The vehicle had been sitting since last fall, so the battery died. I charged the battery and the engine is turning over, but won't start. I have never had issues with starting the car in the past. I am not sure if this problem related to the...

    So, this morning I went down to my 328i to go to work and to my surprise it simply would not unlock using the FOB. I manually unlocked it and inside the lights won't turn on, it won't turn on, it won't start, nothing. :mad: I called my insurance who sent a tow truck to jump start my battery...

    The office garage valet lost my smart key 750i. They just can't find it. So, I have vanity plates and an easily identifiable car, known address both work and home, and the home car garage door opener programmed into my car. I have the second key and can drive the car. So what can/should BMW...

    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...

    Okay, I have a 03' 325i, just got out of the shop and now having problems starting! It happend the first time i left the shop and had to tow it back. Drove to get oil changed, they drove it in and when they were done, it wouldn't crank. Long story short, it ended up being something with the...

    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...

    This may have been previously discussed as I am new to the Forum. I ordered a new 2011 335i coupe and did not order the alarm system. Now I worry about my car being unprotected without it. Is the car pre-wired for the alarm as they once were? The dealer indicates there is no kit available to...
