BMW 323, 96 sigma alarm wont set

I have a 1996 BMW 323 with a Sigma alarm. the problem started after i filled my washer bottle. if i set the alarm, it beeps a few times and then the siren goes off. the central locking wont lock the car, but will unlock it.
the problem also leads to the windows not dropping down when the doors are opened as they should. i'm thinking it might be linnked to a door sensor but i'm clueless in all honesty

I have a vw golf with a sigma alarm on it the car wont start bcos of the alarm.can i take the alarm of and out of the car

You sure can, it is easy as pie buy you have to kinda know what you are doing.... and where the alarm is installed.

First, you take the negative side of the battery off as you will be working on the electrical system of the car.

Then locate the alarm. It will be a small black box usually mounted under the steering wheel somewhere.

Unplug all of the wires from the alarm. There should be wires in a pin block plugged into the alarm box. just unplug the white connectors from the black alarm block.

Cover the pins with electrical tape and make sure that you do this good, you dont want to have an accidental short.

Tape or zip tie the plugs up and out of the way, Leaving these in the car will make it easier when you or the next owner wants to put another alarm in the car. Furthermore, with you taping the ends of the wires up real good, there is relatively low risk in leaving them in there. Out of sight, out of mind... as long as you do a good job :)

The filter is located in the washer bottle itself. Remove the pump(pull out) from the water bottle and the filter is the black seal the pumps fits into. Pull this out and rinse.
