I just got a 99 M3 (it's an E36) with 2 remotes. I have followed the procedure for initiating the remote (opening the trunk, flipping the ignition switch, etc.) which seemed to work, as the LED blinked and the horn chirped after each button was pressed.

Here are the problems:
1. The remote does not lock and unlock the doors.
2. When I press the arm or disarm button, the alarm chirps three times, but the remote does not arm (the LED will not blink).
3. However, if I hold down the arm button, the alarm will sound. Then if I press the disarm button, the alarm stops sounding but the system remains armed.

Any ideas on how to resolve the problem?

I think it's factory. The horn for the alarm has a BMW sticker on it. It's mounted at the front on the passenger side facing backward toward the cab. The key-chain remote says BMW on it and has a large button labelled Lock/Arm Panic and a smaller button labelled Unlock/Disarm. I assume the keys I'm using are for the factory alarm.
