That is rarely the case actually, bmw's during the 2001 to 2004 models have a known alarm electronic issue.

Your problem is the cause of one or more of the following:

1. faulty hood enclosure sensor damaged from engine heat
2. interior motion sensor is faulty
3. the alarm sensor module
4. OR the sensitivity needs recalibration

None of these are cheap quick fixes, but taking your vehicle to a good mechanic is the first step.

Good luck with your issue.

Two approaches, assuming you want a cheap fix... My guess is you've already replaced the remote battery? The unit needs reprogrammed. Instructions should be in the owners manual, if possible to reprogram the unit by the owner. If the instructions are NOT there, you must take it to the dealer, sorry
Shouldn't be more than $80
Good Luck

Hazard lights coming on by themselves while parked 2003 BMW 530i


That is an indication that the alarm has been triggered. Does the beep work when you lock or unlock the car? If it does not sound when you do that, the lights are likely the alarm triggered. Check the hood switch, which is a common problem around this age...

Have the dealer keep the car and run a scan test on the security system while this alarm issue is occurring, then they can pinpoint the cause of the false activation of the system. That problem will likely be one of the door latch sensors is failing.

2002 530i "OIL" microfilter - DOES THIS PART EXIST?


THe microfilter is just the filter. The oil filter is available off the shelf at advance auto parts. It's the original equipment German brand, "Mann". It's about $12.00. The price of $300 you were quoted is more the range for a transmission oil change, not engine oil.

Don't be confused about the word"microfilter". Again, it just means the filter, same as any other car.

2004 BMW 530i ALARM GOES ON AND SOMETIMES CAR DOESNT START


Your alternator is draining your battery to the point that you will still have your lites but will not have enough to start your car. I would take the alternator off and take it to your nearest automotive center to get it tested. They usually will test it for free. Hope this helps you get back running.
