    My 96 convertible has the Sigma "one button" alarm system.

    I know it needs programming with the CP1 programmer but I'm trying to find out about this mythical item.

    Has anyone ever seen a CP1, or better still got a picture of one?
    Has anyone had their fobs recoded using it?
    Where does it connect to the wiring loom?
    What is the recoding process?

    Anyone?

    Someone with early E34 or E36 must have had a fob reprogrammed?

    I'm beginning to think the CP1 may be a bit of an urban myth.....

    Sorry but no.

    From what I can gather the accepted wisdom about the CP1 programmer comes from a guy who is a Sigma alarm expert on the Subaru forums. Whilst I don't doubt his knowledge it would just be nice to have any part of it confirmed, especially for BMW Sigma systems.

    "CP1 Programmer" seems to be the stock answer given on lots of BMW forums to those with Sigma alarm problems - but no-one seems to be able to back this up with any evidence.

    Until someone confirms how the programmer works etc. I'm filing the CP1 under "urban legend".

    All BMW dealers should have the alarm programmer, this shouldnt cost much to do as it takes less than 5 mins to code in a new remote with it.

    Barney, Thanks for your input but you didn't answer any of the questions I posted. I'm looking for actual confirmation from someone that has had this done. No actual facts have surfaced yet so this is still filed under "Urban Legend"

    This is the CP1 programmer, It interfaces with the alarm via the LED. There is a menu to select items such as number of beeps, out arm, etc. Still trying too get it to work so input from anyone who has used one would be gratefully received!

    I can ask in Audio In Motion if you like Billy. Pretty sure they have.
