This is a real common problem. You have an alarm, however if it goes off it may keep going untill your battery is dead. No big problem, you just need to either jump your battery with another car or hook up a battery charger to the battery. Easy fix.
If you lock your doors with your remote or the power locks you need to unlock them with the remote or the alarm will go off. to reset the alarm you need to put the key in the ignition and turn it on and off 3 times fast.
when the hood is "open"you cannot set the alarm so it will go off as it thinks someone is trying to steal it.make sure both catches are operating correctly,a bmw dealer will (should)do the job for nothing(goodwill)my wife always asks nicely......ours is a 1987 3 series coupe...with full dealer history.
Not a solution, but details about the same problem with my car: I have a 99 Lincoln Continental and have noticed correlations between certain conditions and the frequency of the car alarm going off.
When it is hotter outside, the alarm goes off more frequently than when it is colder.
The more of a slant the car is parked on, the more often the alarm goes off. My boyfriend's driveway is on an incline and any time I park my car there, the alarm will go off every 30 seconds. If I move the car to the level street, it doesn't go off at all. This has been noticed on other slanted places I've attempted to park as well.
Go to the dealer and have them check the hood pin switch pad, there is a updated part that is longer to make better contact with the hood pin switch. Also, check the trunk lid stricker to make sure it is not bent, that has got me a couple of times.
