David51 - Can you explain what you mean here? Is this a coding change? I didn't see anything in the coding that addressed where to activate the alert output, but I'm a coding newbie.

I'm still trying to track down why I get no output from my siren (output to the horn works). I did some additional diagnostic today, and tried a different siren, but that didn't fix it. I still get the fast blink for the first 10 seconds after arming. I am now wondering if I did my siren harness correctly, in terms of whether the wires are in far enough? I've attached a picture. They do click in place, and don't come out, but it also seems like they could go farther in. Is the siren harness like the roof module harness (pic attached) where you have to open the harness up to allow the wires to go all the way in? Using pin probes inserted into the siren harness I do get 12V on pins 1&3 and continuity from pin 11 of the roof module harness on the signal wire.

Thanks!

Instruction with photos?

Hello roxxor,

I would like to try out this project myself and wonder if you can send me an instruction with photos.

I see that the posting is referring to pictures, but somehow I don't see them.

Thank you again for a great DIY instruction and hope to hear from you soon.

The photos in the first post still work for me... maybe try a different browser or computer? Here's a direct link to the photos on photobucket:

If you decide to take on the retrofit and need a siren, I've got an extra one that I used for testing. I'll give you a great deal on it, private message me.

Hello DIYrs, has anyone completed this alarm retrofit on an 2014 F32?
Also does this DIY include the sonic sensors inside the vehicle?

Excellent DYI sir. I'm currently adding shock sensor to my F80 2016. I have question about pin 11 on 16 pin connector in roof junction. So is the pin 11 the trigger wire? I see that voltage of 13 volts is always present in that wire and on mine it's red wire with black strip and I do have motion sensor from factory already. Also, do you know if there is constant 12v that's always present except the pin 11 on 16 pin connector? I have sunroof as well on the car. Any guidance will be appreciated sir.

Hi everyone, I'm trying to find the sockets for the wiring to the sunroof plug. (61130005199) I have found 1 on ebay, just 1 for about 10 dollars.

I don't think that it's a bmw proprietary socket, so do someone know where can I find a generic one that fits?

You may go to a BMW dealer for parts. I usually buy them at a better price on ECS Tuning.
