The battery is low which is causing the alarm to activate, replace the battery. I'm going to guess that it gets pretty hot where you are between the times you listed. BMW cars have been known to be affected by heat.

7 beeps at startup on a 2000 Ford Explorer


Sounds like your anti-theft immobilizer has kicked in. As long as you have the original lock, and key fob with immobilizer chip, the standard way to re-pair the key and lock is to remove the battery leads for 30 minutes and reconnect.

You are better reading Codes with a code reader which will give you an accurate display with a numerical code.

There are a few clues here.

How to set & cancel theft deterrent system or how to set & cancel security...


Theft deterrent system (on some models)

Theft deterrent system is designed to deter vehicle theft. The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn when it detects abnormalities such as follows:

• Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
• The batter terminal is disconnected and then reconnected
• The system control is disconnected and then reconnected.
• Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn if someone attempts to damage or break into your car.

Setting the system

You can set the system with or without the impact sensor function. For details, see "Canceling the impact sensor" below.

1. Turn the ignition key to "LOCK" and remove it.
2. Have all passengers get out of the vehicle
3. Push the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once. At this time, the turn signal lights flashes once and the security indicator light comes on.

The system is set after 30 seconds. At this time, the security indicator light start flashing slowly.

Once the system is set, you cannot start the engine until you cancel the system.

The system will not be set in the following cases.

• When any of the door is open; security horn sounds for 1 second, close the door and set the system again.
• When the hood is open; close the hood securely.

Canceling the Impact Sensor

The impact sensor can be cancelled to prevent false alarms from being triggered incase of the following conditions:

• When parked in the noisy area
• The vehicle body or glass is subjected to a strong impact from the (such as in highly pressurized car wash).
• When transporting by a car carrier or ferry.

To cancel the impact sensor;

1. Lock the door by pushing the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once, and turn signal light flash once
2. Then push the lock (set) switch twice within 5 seconds. At this time, the turn signal flash 5 times to indicate the impact sensor function is disable.

The impact sensor is deactivated as long as the system remained armed.

Canceling the system

The system will be cancelled by the following two ways:

• Turn the ignition key from "LOCK" to "ON" position.
• Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch

If the turn signal lights flash 3 times, the system has been alarmed. Check to see if there is any abnormality with your vehicle.

If any of the doors is not opened within 30 seconds, all doors will be automatically locked and the system will be set.

When the system is set

Activating the system; When the system detects abnormalities such as follows, it flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the turn lights only (depending on the model) and sounds the security horn and vehicle horn of 30 seconds.

• Unlocking any door without using wireless control
• Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
• The battery terminal is disconnected and then reconnected.
• The system control assembly is disconnected and then reconnected
• Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

Reactivating the alarm;

Once set, the system automatically resets the alarm after the alarm stops.

The alarm will activate again under the same circumstances described in "Activating the system".

Stopping the Alarm

The alarm will be stopped by the following two ways;

• Turn the ignition key from the "LOCK" to "ON" position.
• Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.

The system can be cancelled by these ways at the same time.

If the battery becomes discharged due to the vehicle being unused, for a long time etc., when the battery is recharged or replaced, the system will activate the alarm. If this happens, immediately unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch, and the alarm will stop.

Testing the system

1. Set the system
2. Insert a wireless remote control key into the key hole on the driver's door handle, and unlock the door.
3. Open the door, and an alarm will sound.
4. Stop the alarm by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.
5. Repeat this operation for the front passenger's door.

Good luck.

I need to disable my alarm on a 1997 bmw 528i.


Now im not sure since the manual says your model has the same alarm system as the 328i and on the 328i you can remove the module to disable by doing the following. you can unplug the control module. It is located under the glove box. Climb under the dash on the passenger side and remove a few screws on the trim panel under the glove box. Theres a black control module with a green connector. There should be a lock tab on the connector. press the lock tab and pull out the connector. The alarm should now be disabled. But if it has the special transponder key this may not work.
But if the only reason you want to disable it is because of the motion sensor setting of the alarm for no reason there is a solution for this. To disable the motion sensor, hit the lock button to arm, then hit lock button again within four seconds to disable motion sensor. Red light on rearview mirror should flash four times, then pause, then start flashing on regular intervals. this is most likely the reason if your having the issue where the alarm goes off every 20 minutes.
If you want to completely remove it below is a wiring diagram taken from the manual for you alarm system.

Sometimes when I set the alarm - it beeps 23 times quickly - it might do this for several days, then suddenly, it sets properly - 1 beep. BUT it often goes off on its own - the light on the dash will...


Hi
Check that all the doors are closing correctly, a good way is to check that the interior light is switched off when all the doors are closed.
The problem usually occurs due to the alarm unable to set itself properly due to open doors or the bonnet not pushing the switch down far enough.
It may also have stored old codes from when it has been set off in the past, get a good auto alarm place to reset the alarm if you don't have the manual to do it yourself. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Replaced my computer on my 1998 cadillac deville and now it's telling me I have an anti-theft problem and it won't start - now what


If done at a Cadillac dealer it would not be doing that now. The PCM will need to be flashed with the VIN number of your car to operate again. ANY TIME THE COMPUTER IS CHANGED THE VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER NEEDS TO BE ENTERED INTO THE prom IN THE COMPUTER

There is a beeping sound that I cant diagnos. It


Someone may have lost a digital watch in the vehicle. Or you may have an alarm feature for a destination timer. See if the clock has a setting for repeat alert.

If you have an owners manual see what features you have for the trip computer or navigation unit. On the menu for the Command Control you have controls for the Horn to blow for setting the alarm, Park Assist, and Autolock for the doors. It may be on that menu for a clock alert.

Beeps while driving


Check your speed alarm in your computer. It maybe setup to alarm when going over that speed and it will only do it once during that trip if I remember correctly.
