    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know how to code a new remote control to a 3G MK1 alarm system on a E36? I have just purchased the car and am trying to get the alarm working, it has the wrong remote with it, I have the two button when it should be a one button.
    So I have no code to copy from a working remote.
    Is it a case of ripping it all out and fitting a new system?

    From the sounds of it you've read my guide...

    You could try getting another receiver module with a working fob & copy that but frankly I'd suggest you replace it with the 3G Mk2 or an aftermarket system like Toad or Cobra

    Oooo let me know how the Mk2 fitting goes!
    I have a mk1 and found a receiver & fob, copied that working fob and fitted it to my car.

    I think it is the pickup for the tailgate switch but I've not traced it right back. Shielded wires are usually attached to the door/boot/bonnet switches.

    Thanks Billy, check this post out if you could:
    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...d-into-t73994/

    I found the sheilded blue/white wire spliced into the blue wire of pin 4 on the black multi-plug.
    I can't think of any reason why the alarm would be connected to the heater.

    Edit: Just FYI, the tailgate switch is a brown/white shielded wire as I've replaced that before now.

    Colour varies by year and model if I'm not mistaken. Had a look at the other post and I'm confused too. If I can work out which connecter this is X123 for example we'll be able to tell what pin 4 does!
