    Question Euro 97 M3 Alarm/Chirp

    Hey guys, just chasing on where to start. Euro M3 remote locks & unlocks fine - minus the dodgy passo actuator, and has the alarm flashing correctly infront of shifter. I have tried different combos with the key itself but cannot find much on getting the chirps when locking - any info much appreciated

    Is it the OEM alarm system or aftermarket? If its OEM there should be a siren in the engine bay. Should be somewhere around your driver side headlight since you are RHD. If not there should be a 2 port plug near the frame rail if the car is pre installed for factory alarm.

    If you have the factory system (big key fob), you have to code the GM4 and set the audible acknowledgment to active.

    (This is a general E36 question, not M3 specific)
