The chirp should be right as it enters programming mode. The key has to stay in the 'on' position because the car has to provide power to the control module...

Alright, I got the car to go into programming mode and the red light on the remote lit up when I hit the button on the remote but the LED on the console didn't go out like the instructions said it would. I tried it 3 times but the remote won't program. Each time I finished the procedure and went to hit the button, it did nothing.

Hmm. Could be a few things wrong, battery in the remote may be weak, remote may be defective, alarm control module may be defective.

after hitting the button a few times trying to get it to work, the red button did kind of dim and not light up. I'll try the battery.

I am going to move this to the FAQ area because this is probably the third time I have typed these directions out now.

Thumbs up Flasing hazards when arming the alarm

If you want to try some DIY wiring, Ron Stygar has an article explaining how to make the hazard lights flash when arming and disarming the alarm. It involves wiring in a relay to provide a momentary ground to the hazard lights triggered off the power to the alarm siren.

URL is http://www.unofficialbmw.com/e36/ala...ory_alarm.html

Good Luck

Thanks.

Alright I found out what the problem was. The sensor on the hood wasn't touching so it wouldn't lock doors. Is the alarm supposed to chirp when you arm/disarm the alarm?

You can disable/enable the chirp, hold down the lock and unlock buttons at the same time on the remote for a few seconds to disable/enable the chirp.

Default Re: Reprogramming factory keyless entry (1996+ and on)

this is the most ridiculous solution but i know y'all are serious, but it didn't work for me, now my mechanic says I need a new hood switch becasue of a "fault in arming alarm", but alarm works, i just can't get fobs to lock/unlock.
I love this car but it is killing me !
