Alarm diagnostic assistance please.
I bought our 2004 325xi with high millage and it runs great but has a couple minor things wrong with it. I'm attempting repairs myself unless they become too complex that it becomes a trip to the dealer.
One issue that is annoying the crap out of me is the alarm system does not "appear" operational. The "clown-nose" does not blink, and there is no indication from the turn-signals or horn that the car is either locked or un-locked.
I have checked the fuses (specifically 43 & 45 i think) and both were fine.
Does anyone have any experience with this issue or can provide some basic pointers on what to check in an attempt to resolve?
