Moved the E46 section.

simez, welcome to werkz. In order to change the sensitivity on the car's alarm, you will have to -- don't hate me -- go to the dealership. Most independent shops do not own the programming tools for these systems because the tools are too expensive, and there is little business to be done reprogramming alarms.

Maybe somebody else will chime in with a workaround, but this is one thing that I believe demands biting the bullet and going to the dealership.

Best of luck.

Please let us know how everything goes.

There is no sensitivity on the factory BMW e46 alarm. Make sure you do have a factory alarm and not an aftermarket. If it is factory then you can try disconnecting the FIS interior sensor which is the square box lokking thing up in the center of the headliner. You can also try disconnectng the hood switch. If niether of those stop it from going off then have a dealer read out the memory of the alarm system and find out which sensor in the car is triggering the alarm to go off.
