    Hope i can get some help here as its driving me crazy.

    When i got my 323 coupe 8 months ago there was no key fob for the alarm or to unlock the doors just the keys supplied .

    The sensors inside the cockpit have been taped up and it seems that the power sounder has been de-activated as my horn is not working. But when you unlock or open any of the doors. Turn off the ignition to restart . The hazzards flash for about 30 seconds. Ive managed to put up with it for the last 6 months as i have hardly used the car but am now getting fed up with people telling me i have left my hazzards on .and flashing me cause there flashing .lol so im trying to find out how to disarm the alarm system so they dont flash when i unlock the doors.

    thanks !

    Have you tried disconnecting the car battery, then turning the ignition on and reconnecting the battery? Also read here for disabling the hazards from flashing http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...oblems-t22614/

    To stop the hazzards flashing pull the hazzard switch out (pull the gear leaver gaitor out then you can put your fingers under the switch and push it out) then you will see a single wire in a black sleaving, cut this wire and this will stop them flashing.
    The alarm is behind the glovebox if you want to unplug it there.
    that got my problem sorted a big thanks to ronnie for directing me to chauffers post.

    youve sorted my pain out .lol

    I know this isn't really relevant now but i pulled all of my alarm out really easily. I traced all of the wires to their locations & found out what they did etc, made a note of what they were connected to (colours etc) as i was putting in a Toad Ai606. The alarm was not set up 2 the immobilise the car in any way, possibly because my car has EWS as standard? So i just cut the wires one by one+pulled it all out!
