Hi guys, Im new to this forum, and new to BMW's in general, I had just bought a 1997 540i, and my alarm seems to be very sensitive to big trucks driving by, and loud noises, have any of you experienced the same thing. Is it something that I cn adjust myself, or do I need to take it to dealer.
Also, My 6 CD changer skips very often when I hit bumps while driving. Is this normal?
if you hit a large enough bump, or a bump just right the discs in the changer will skip, there is nothing that you can do to stop that. hopefully it doesn't happen too often though. if it seems to happen far too often, try a cleaning disc, or just cleaning the cartridge or something, the thing could be dirty since the car is 7 years old and dust and stuff builds up over time
i am not sure how the alarm can be adjusted though, sorry, hopefully someone else will be able to shed some light into this subject.
