Exclamation Just installed OEM bmw alarm, no chirp, no blink, nothing different...

Just installed the entire BMW alarm with tilt, interior sensor, and alarm. Is there a fuse I need to add or check? Ive tried holding down trunk button, starting the car, etc... Im running out of things to do, I've checked all of the connections and them seem to be pretty simple.

Thanks

You may need to reprogram the car to enable the alarm.

So it would show 0 signs of working until reprogramming? I've read places that you get a chirp but none of the real alarm features until reporgramed

You have to get it coded. Not just plug and play. PA soft or other programs or the stealer.

you may have read the thread where someone added a small speaker to get the chirp sound just for letting the user know his/her car is locked.
