Hi, Got woken up in the middle of the night by the alarm on my 1999 2.8 Z3 Roadster. No reason for it to go off. Reset and car locked okay.
Drove to work only to have the alarm going off intermittently in the car park - unlocking and locking silenced it but only for a min or 2.
Remembered that manual said press remote lock twice to dissable any interior sensor (where are they?). Same result.
Finally removed fuse 43 in order to shut the thing up - 43 because the other two listed included other functions such as clock, etc.
Replaced the fuse before driving home, but then noticed that the central locking on the drivers door isn't working from the remote. Passenger side and boot unlock on the button, but I had to use the key to unlock the drivers side.
Using the key I can unlock both doors and boot, so the central locking is linked to the drivers door, but the acctuator won't unlock it on the remote.
Now is the alarm going off a symptom of a dying lock actuator - or have I confused the hell out of the system by removing fuse 43? I have tried all combinations of key and remote with no luck - the drivers door refuses to lock or unlock.
It's a late (Oct 99) 2.8 Roadster with a 3 button remote.
Any ideas anyone or do I have to start pulling the door apart?
