    I am looking to convert the Navigation unit on my 1997 E38 from the factory Mk1 to a MK4. I have a full harness from a later model including a BM54 radio. My car has TV and DSP so would like to leave as much of the original as possible And adapt the existing harness rather than installing the...

    I've seen little snippets of posts suggesting that simply replacing the receiver on the alarm module with the unit from a 3G Mk2 essentially means you have the "better" version without any wiring hassle. Is it actually possible, or am I better off looking for a good remote and receiver pair...

    Hi, I have just bought an e46 320d touring to replace my Seat Leon mk1 due to needing a bit more space because I am going to be driving around France in June for Euro 2016 with a few mates from uni! So far I am loving it, such a nicer place to be behind the wheel compared to the leon. However I...
  5. BMW 7 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 7 Series
    Hi one and all, Does anyone know how to fit the MK4 satnav to a e65 02 plate originally fitted with a MK1 system? Mine broke recently so I thought I'd upgrade to the MK4 unit to find that I can't fit it to the existing loom as the plugs are different. Cheers guy's :thumbsup

    I found a guide on the 2nd page of the "Alarm Identification Thread" that discusses removing part of the alarm (a little snap-on box with the aerial), inspecting the solder joints and then using this as a guide to soldering your own remote. The FOB is not working! I did turn the alarm horn to...
  8. BMW 5 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E12
    Hi all, I've recently bought a 1991 E34 520i. With it came one key, one 3G Mk1 alarm remote and the key to reset the alarm. However, a previous owner in the past has drilled a hole in the top left hand corner of the remote (to try and get around the common problem of the alarm remote plastic...

    Hi, I have a 525 TDS SE with what I believe is a 3G MK1 Alarm system which didn't come with an alarm key fob. From what I can find out the fob needs to be soldered to match the alarm box (mine is a 82 11 9 401 487), the guide I have found says that you need a working fob to copy. I would like to...

    This is my mates Tom's MK1 Golf GLX, it was mint and low miles but he has done this to it, it isn't rusty the has painted it to look rusty, note the plastic mirrors and bumpers are even rusty. The golf was originally a golden brown/biege colour. There aint a bit of real rust on the car, it's...

    Hi guys, Does anyone know how to code a new remote control to a 3G MK1 alarm system on a E36? I have just purchased the car and am trying to get the alarm working, it has the wrong remote with it, I have the two button when it should be a one button. So I have no code to copy from a working...

    Hi all, I've got a bit of a strange problem with my car. It's fitted with the single button 3G mk1 alarm which last week I got 'working' or so I thought. I'd disconnected the battery to do some soldering and re-connected it again at around 5:30 in the afternoon. That night the alarm went off at...

    This is not a repeat of my post in the auto electrical forum about trying to get the system working, now that's solved (fingers crossed) I'd like to know if it's working properly so I need to check a few things. OK, can anyone tell me if their system does the same as mine, or indeed anything...
