What fuse controls the alarms system

2004 330CI 66K miles. The alarm goes off periodically and unexpectedly, upsetting my neighbors. I disconnected the hood sensor but the alarm still goes off. I park in the apt. garage, so i just want to pull out the alarm system fuse for now. Anyone have any history with doing this and know which fuse to pull out? Does that fuse control anything else also? I believe that the fuse box for this is above the glove box and the fuses are marked on the cover. Just looking for anyone else's experience.

I am having the same problem with mine at the moment.

Have you tried either locking the car manually with the key or pressing the lock button twice (leave 3 seconds between each press) which should disable the internal sensors.

This is only a temporary solution that works for me.

Take a look at my reply to Jack H's post. That may help you. The fuse box is where you mention, easy to get at and has a card that shows which # fuse is which. I think the manual also shows which fuse # is which. Another way to temporarily solve the problem of upsetting the neighbours is to disconnect the alarm horn, situated normally inside the engine bay on the rear firewall. That way if it triggers, it will not sound the horn. The alarm horn is a separate horn.
