    Hi guys,

    im really confused about my alarm,

    when i lock it with the fob, the doors lock siren beeps, imbolizer sets but alarm doesnt set.

    when i lock it with the door open the alarm beeps, imoblizer sets with a high pitched noise and if i try and start it the imboizer / alam sets off a noise.

    but its not the alarm noise that goes off as it once did, it all started after i changed my indercator bulb last week.

    it was working i could lock the door and the alarm would set with various beeps or one long tone (which i believe is the imboizer tone)

    can anyone shed any light.

    i believe its a bmw alarm, on the siren it has the on off switch with the key (dont have the key anymore tho)

    I don't think I can help you with the problem you're having but I'm sure someone will be along shortly to do so.
    My guess would be that a wire has maybe chafed, as I believe these alarm were a dealer fit; ie, BMW fitted it after the car was build, so the routing of the wires was up to whoever fitted it.
    BUT If you could, could you possibly take a picture of the fob and key that came with your car? you could PM me or just blur out the cut part of the key to be safe, I just want to see what mine should have come with as it's the same age and model as yours but I need to order some bits for mine.

    No problems,

    Ill upload some photos later, im not sure if its the master key or the spare as ive only got one, so waiting for a new one to be cut.

    I did find a post about alarms so might be worth having a look.

    Im just finding the little S**Tie bits that need doing, the things that bug you. Ive only just sorted out my Clock and the light flicking on and off! but the alarm is annoying me now as it was working fine and now its not,

    but in fairness the idiot who had the car before me has cocked up the wireing, he was running a underpowered battery for about 3 years. and the wireing is shocking its a total joke its going to take some time and effort.
