Question about 2005 BMW X5

1 Answer

My 2003 X5 alarm started acting strange - it is turning on for no particular reason. It happened 10-15 times. I can not find any regularity. Alarm stops when I press lock/unlock on remote or when I unlock the car with the key. Any idea why this may happen?

this happened to us when we got a new key and had it programmed with the car. anytime we locked the doors and opened them with the key instead of the remote, the alarm would set itself off. we took out the fuse for the alarm.

2002 Saab 9.5 Griffin 3L Turbo. Alarm comes on, for no reason?

Your alarm siren is the problem. You can replace the siren or have the Saab dealer program your car NOT to use it and remove it. When you turn off the ignition your SID will not display anything, unless the key in the ON or START position.
