SO i have a problem. One, i'm retarded when it comes to BMW's . So
that will explain the rest of my post.
I wake this morning to go to work and I press my alarm and the alarm
continuously goes off.
This is a dealer installed alarm , one they threw in for me .
So we go to look for the battery and can't find it . The neighbors
are complaining of the alarm , I finally get it to go off and come up
here to ask where it is so I can go down and see if the alarm is
connected to the battery.
IF i could find the battery that is. I looked in the trunk, but do I
need to rip everything out to find it??
The battery lives in a hole behind (more towards the rear of the car) the
Right Rear tire. From inside the trunk, lift the carpet from below the right
brake light, the battery lives under the cover you just exposed by lifting
the carpet. If you continue to pull the carpet aside, you will find the
spare tire living under a cover in the center of the trunk. If you've ever
found the spare before, find it again, and look to the right ...
The alarm is not connected directly to the battery, it is connected to the
fuse block, which is then connected to the battery. Knowing where the
battery is will not help you very much, except you could disconnect it in
order to get the alarm to stop blaring. The problem with this tactic is that
you will lose many other settings that your car has stored -- travel
distance for the Auto Up feature of the windows, the radio stations you have
programmed, memory settings for the seats, those sorts of things. And, odds
are that the alarm will remember that it was on the last time there was
power, and it will come on again when the power comes back.
