  1. 1997 E36 Z3 1.9 - Alarm intermittently going off and "popping"

    Car Audio, ICE, Car Alarms, Mobile Phones, I-Drive
    Hello, So I drove home from work last night and parked my car, a few hours later i hear this weird "popping" sound and a few blips/beeps from the alarm which progressively got worse but never constant. It sounded like R2D2 was living under my bonnet and had learned to pop. It almost sounded like...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series

    I have what i believe to be the 3G MK1 siren, it is relative small and, tennis ball sized and round. It has a key to disable it. My fob has a grey and red button. It started making random chirps a while ago whilst driving and whilst stationary and locked. I left the car with the battery...

  6. Siren sound when accelerating

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi all, I'm currently very worried that the turbo has gone on my 2007 E90 320d. When accelerating I have a siren sound which increases pitch, and decreases when decelerating. Power is very restricted, although I have no fault lights appearing on the dash. Noise seems to be coming from under the...

  8. E61 Alarm siren battery replacement - error code - write up repair

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    I've had an alarm 'code' on my car for as long as I can remember. Highly annoying if your even slightly OCD. See below for pictures of the part in question. On the E60's it's apparently under the wheel arch on the left hand side. After wasting 20 minutes removing said wheel liner I discovered...

  15. 1997 316i (1.6) Compact. Alarm works but no bleeps or siren (silent mode?)

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi All I have a 1.6 compact (July 1997) and it has what I believe to be the 3g alarm system. The system arms and disarms properly and works fine except for the fact that there is no siren noise or any bleeps on arm/disarm. I've checked out the threads (which is why I know it is a 3g). It has...

    Hi all I've got a couple of strange queries regarding Sigma alarms - unfortunately, not the standard BMW ones listed in the guides on here, or at least their model number doesn't match even though the keyfobs are similar. While my E92 is off the road, I purchase a very cheap E36 - this came...
