E36s are known for their flicky wires. Check your hood/trunk/door sensors and make sure they work. Also it's a good iead to take a look at the alarm & make sure all harnesses and wires are attached. I've seen OE alarm units are going very cheap at ebay.

hey guys,

if I have an E36 with no alarm, is it easy to install the OEM alarm in my car? and I obviously want the remote keyless entry with it...
