88 735 Alarm won't let me start car and I don't have remote.

The Battery in my 88 BMW 735 died out due to light I left on, I charged it an put it back in. Now the alarm which I don't have a remote for, is activated and won't let me start the car. Is there a way to bypass the alarm or to disable it?

do you have a remote for it? if so hit the unlock button. if not, cycle the key in the door cylinder. the disarm switch is connected to the cylinder/latch so that should shut it off.

You can probably pull the horn relay to kill the horn while you are working on the problem.
With the battery connected to a jumper, try locking and unlocking the driver's door with the key. If that works, make sure the battery gets charged before you unhook the jumper cables to keep the computer memory alive.

You should have just purchased a battery charger and then you wouldn't have disconnected the battery and un-paired the alarm system and immobilizer. There would have been enough residual energy in a flat battery to keep the immobilizer happy.

Disconnect the battery completely for at least 2 hours. Hold the positive and negative terminals together for 5 minutes. Put the key in the ignition and connect the negative lead of the battery. Connect the positive in one swift movement. Leave the vehicle for 5 minutes to reset and re-pair the chip in the key and the chip in the ignition lock.

It would have worked if the key was in the ignition when you connected the new battery.

Find the alarm and disconnect it, or locate the fuse to the alarm and remove it. Then you can charge the battery without all the noise. Once the battery is charged, hook the alarm up and disarm it with the remote.
