    A work colleague has recently bought a T plate 3 Series Cabrio.

    After getting a flat battery, the alarm keeps going off but he doesnt have a fob to turn it off. The handbook procedure doesnt seem to get it into "program" mode to be able to enter the pass code and disable the alarm.

    Im not sure what alarm it is but its factory fitted and just gives off a constant shrill noise, beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep, different to what i usually expect of alarms.

    I disconnected the siren but the alarm is still active as the hazards still flash. Are there any tips for disabling it? I saw on a previous post, the idea of disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it with the ignition on..... could that work?

    Thanks

    Do you have the alarm with the barrel lock built in the siren?

    And yes, try disconnecting the battery with ignition off and reconnecting with the ignition on.

    If you have a alarm with battery back up and let the battery go completely flat and the siren packs up then you will need new batteries, can get them from here*http://www.cellpacksolutions.com/
