It's located just behind the glove box.

Here ya go...

Here's a diagram of the junk behind the glove box. The one marked A104 is the central locking brain and it's the one the alarm would plug into.



A104 is the central locking box...

What year is your car?

What year is your car?


Behind the glove box do you see something like this? This is from a '95 318....


The central locking harness is right there in the middle of the pic...







The central locking control module is what the plug with all the wires is plugged into.... the alarm plug is open just below it.

its a 1995 316 compact, i only got 1 horizontal unit, all the rest are vertical, but now i know what it looks like im sure i'll be able to find it, but it'd be most likely be behind the glove box and not above the drivers feet?
