Alarm acting strange

I just bought my 1999 328i 4dr and the alarm acts up sometimes.
Last night I was trying to get the alarm to set after removing the fuse for it and it seems I messed things up. I drove to the store afterwards and hit the lock button on the remote and to my surprise the parking lights flashed and the clown nose was flashing. When I came out I hit the unlock button and I went on my way thinking it was reset or something. I drove home and hit lock again and nothing but the doors locking this time.

Is that strange or just me doing something wrong?

Thanks for any input
Alan

Check and make sure the fuses are good...

Thanks M40man.

After a lil more investigating I found the drivers door open/close sensor is not working and showing the door has been opened when I exit the car. Also the interior lights dont come on when I open the drivers door so I need to check it more and replace the lock/sensor if needed. The other door sensors work fine and kick the lights and alarm into action every time.

Thanks though
