In Reply to: Does alarm kit provide audible lock/unlock? posted by RC on October 07, 1999 at 23:51:10:
: When you install the BMW alarm kit and get it activated by the dealer do you then get audible indications when you lock/unlock the car? The "whoop" you get when you lock and "whoop whoop" you get when you unlock my wife's 528i are a bit anemic but very nice to have.
: Is this a "Car and Key" feature that the dealer can enable/disable?
: The FAQ seems to be silent on this subject, unfortunately.
The alarm will make a very soft chirp when it locks, and a soft double chirp when it unlocks. The front and rear turn signals will also flash accordingly. Both can be turned off by the dealer. It's part of the car memory, the default is ON.
