My Ride: 330ci convertible
Alarm sounds and starter won't engage on 330ci

Only had my 2004 330ci m convertible less than a year. I searched for info but can't seem to find my issue. Alarm and immobilizer sounding off!

Car was stored for winter, started it 3 times with no problem. Last weekend wife went to start it and it started chirping at her, like security and key won't engage starter. Verified battery was good with 12.89v, still nothing. Manual said use key to lock and unlock twice to disarm and still nothing. Checked on-line and said to unhook negative for an hour and should reset. Reconnected and sirens and all kinds of lights going off and I didn't think there was an alarm system installed (per previous owner) and still can't start. Car is now with battery connected and quiet, but red park light on and blue light flashing.

Please help! Researching it might be EWS, ECU, Fuse, other? If I don't find problem I have a $200 bill to tow plus repairs!

I'm sure there is something on this, but searches aren't working and I've been searching for 3 days now?
