Question about BMW 528

1 Answer

Car alarm keeps going off for no reason. What do I do?

The car alarm on my 2000 BMW 528i station wagon keeps going off for no reason. At work, at the mall, anywhere and everywhere. The lights start flashing and the horn starts honking. It's driving everyone nuts. I park my car at a warehouse, then I leave to run my sales route, then the alarm goes off. The warehouse workers are getting tired of it and have now named the car Christine. Help!! How do I fix this?

I would first check the hood switch. They are plastic and tend to break or come loose. It is located near one of the cabin filter housings, I can not remember which one. It has a small rod that sticks up about 1/2 inch and has a two pin connector. Just disconnect it. Good luck.

SOURCE: Car alarm stopped working.. Car wont start

the jetta has a faulty alarm system from the factory i have been working on one in my shop. the alarm moddule is inside the dash behind the light switch and has a 10 pin connector and a 6 pin connector. this can be bypassed if you disconnect both connectors and jump the two large wire on the 6 pin connectors, these wires operate your starter. the car will start and run but your alarm will no longer be active. the door locks and everthing else will still work. the only issue i am having is the factory radio isn't working because it is controlled by the alarm. but worse case scenario i can use an aftermarket radio if need be.

SOURCE: car alarm goes off for no reason

I had this same problem just today.Hhowever, I had the remote in my hand and it would not stop the honking!. Since I could get into the car, I released the hood, opened the master fuse box on the left side, and pulled the fuse labeled "Horn Relay".(On the upper left, there are three large, black, square fuses, it is the third and is labeled in the lid). I waited ten seconds and put the fuse back in, no more alarm, no more infernal honking.

Why is my remote not locking car after changing key batteries ?


One problem can be when changing batteries be careful not to push any buttons, this can cause problems or if the batteries have been dead for a while, looses its "frequency" the alarm in the car is not picking up the transmitter in the key.(key and alarm in car out of sync ) get the keys re-coded. depending on which bmw you have you can DIY ( google re-coding bmw 5.. keys) or go to bmw.

The alarm on my 528i 98' goes on for no reason ? any idea


There is a short in the transponder,or tranducer itself, are you near a garage door opener,like when someone opens there door and it signal you alarm, Its either picing up a alarm signal else where or its sensitivity is to sensitive itself. depends on the alarm itself there are resistor adjustment for yours, its on the reciever. you may want to adjust the sensitivity so if a feather falls on it it dont go off

97 bmw 528i factory alarm goes off for no reason


disable the hood microswitch. just unplug it. That and the cabin sensor are the most probably reasons the alarm will go off.
Alarms are useless. Totally effin useless. So it goes off.....then whaddya going to do. Shoot someone? Call the police? or listen to it drain the battery over and over again.
But....you can't disable the alarm totally. The bmw engineers have tied it into the main computer. you can however disable the sensors one by one so it doesn't set off the alarm. Hood sensor....Hood sensor....that's the culprit.

Car Alarm keeps going off on 528i (1999)


I had a similar problem, 2003 530i, but only while the alarm was active. The culprit was a bad hood switch that was making intermitent connection.

well first find a priest... oh wait just kidding.... you need to locate the power relay for windows and replace it... it is located on the fuse panel which i have recently learned is likely located in the trunk on a bmw.
