    Hi guys

    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.

    try disconnecting the battery with the key in the ignition turned on. Leave the key in the on position and reconnect the battery.

    The key button is nothing but a torch.

    Ok sounds like you still have an original alarm (see here to ID & for fault guide)...

    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...3g-ews-t39173/

    and a seperate immobiliser. It sounds like you don't have an alarm fob so again you need to check my guide.
