1988BMW750iL is an unknown quantity at this point
Just owned. No idea whether or not the car comes with alarm? I do notice that a LED on the central dash will stay on when lock the door. My questions are:

1) Need to confirm with experienced one that the LED is alarm indicator.
2) How this alarm is triggered?
3) How to disable in case of alarm?

Thanks,

Rocky

do you have a keyless entry? i assume it has some sort of alarm, if it's activated currently i couldn't tell you. maybe there's a switch under the sterring wheel column.

nope that flashy light is for your antitheft radio....if you do have an alarm, when you lock the car from the outside, itll arm....and to disarm it, stick the key in one of the door locks, and unlock the car

No, I don't have keyless entry. The PO only left me the master key with light. It seems that doesn't have the IR receiver mounted on the sunroof control panel.

I guess that mine doesn't come with alarm. Thanks for the tips of flashy light.

Thanks,

I just received my Bentley 7 series manual. Look all over briefly, couldn't find the VIN locations, color code rule such basic information. I have lots of work to do on my car...
My VIN # WBAGC8319J2767552. I need the paint code in order to buy a good R/P door. Does anyone have data available?

Thanks,

Rocky
