Now that Xmas is out if the way I have decided that it is time to start looking at my BMW e36 320i project.
During the holiday period the battery completely died so I have purchased a replacement battery. I connected the battery and Then the alarm went off. I have a meta systems alarm (according to the siren) and I have a little fob which looks like a USB stick. Next to the steering wheel us a little USB looking port. I inserted the fob into the port, the red light stayed on ad after a few seconds it makes 5 beeps. Once this happens I am then able to start the car, so I assume this is the immobiliser. The key to start the car has a button which is the BMW badge and I thought this was for the alarm.
When I press the button on the key the alarm keeps going. It kind of goes off for a few seconds every 10 seconds or so.
I have disconnected the siren so now I don't have the noise but the hazards still blink indicating the alarm is active when I get out of the car and lock it the alarm off as hazards stop blinking.
Does anyone know how I can deactivate my alarm as I can't drive the car with the hazards blinking.
It appear to me that the alarm is not switching off when I point and press the key button at the car. Although there is a light in the key when I press the button.
