    Of course the wires may lead nowhere
    So, you're saying if it goes to a unit. I could still have an alarm (but without the siren) if I programme a fob? How much and where would i be able to programme a fob? Like any car garage or would I have to take it to a BMW dealership?

    BillyWhizz's article covers the programming, first job it to identify the alarm and go from there. Fobs aren't much. some second hand ones might well be reusable but oyu have to watch versions. All in the article.



    However, if it doesn't work and you can't be bothered with messing about here is a handy "work around" for most cars.

    If the central locking still works on the key, buy an aftermarket central locking kit and only have to wire the master solenoid in, instead of the complete system, to work the drivers door as once the cars central locking sees the drivers door lock it will lock the rest.

    Think I have a 3T looking at the sticker under the bonnet, and yes I'd say valet key... although I can get in the boot I can't lock the glovebox. Need to looking into getting the fob I bought programmed!
    Thanks for all the input!
