    Hello all this weekend ive been putting in my m3 lump into my e36 touring 328 and today was the big day but after trying to start it while it was still on jacks the alarm keeps activating it's self the battry is alittle flat too, It has a 3tews siren alarm on it which i don't have the fob for i can't seem to think what the problem could be.
    The alarm shuts off when i lock the door but as soon as i open it the alarm goes off ?

    Cheers
    Lewis

    Hello
    Blackfear

    try putting jumpers on it or charge the battery up to give it full power it could be that with the battery being low that the alarm is't working as should?
    Hope this helps :)

    If you don't have the fob then won't the car be immobilised and therefore the alarm keep activating...

    It said 3tews on the siren alarm in the engine bay
    Just thought the car wouldn't start or run if i was to remove it but we will soon see i have found out the head was cracked earliar before i went to start it so i got a guy coming to pick it up tomorrow for repair
