I recently had a problem with my brake lights (http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=283526), and while the fuse was blown, I noticed that remotely unlocking the car would flash the brake lights. I don't think it had ever done that before, and after the problem was fixed, it doesn't.

Usually I can hear the door lock motors well enough to know the car is locked, but I was wondering if the lights are supposed to flash, or if this is a programmable option...

Thanks,
Heath

Yeah, do Ron's write up. It worked for me 10 years ago.

Flashing the light is not standard, but as was noted above, can be added. You can also toggle the horn to beep when arming/disarming by holding down both buttons on the remote for a few seconds.

When you do this mod, take pics. I'm a total electrical newbie. Even with Ron's awesome info, I wouldn't know how to hook up that relay. I need to see "solder this wire here" type instructions.

Pic 1 and 4 are not correct. Pic for showed the relay print and the relay wired with shrink.
Don't know what pic 1 is. Maybe glove box removal.

Probably screwed up when we did the watermark stuff.

Sorry, newbie question here. But did all 01 Z3M coupes come with keyless entry? I just bought one today and the previous owner didn't have it. Can I order it from the dealership?

It was a dealer installed option. OEM keyless/alarm is no longer available from BMW. Individual dealerships may have stock. Circle BMW had one that I purchased a few weeks ago. Not sure if they have more.
