Your Ride: 2001 BMW 325ci
Picture 7: This is what it looks like with the glove compartment off. Now you have to remove 4 screws to get access to the computer where you make all the connections. Two of them are on the same level as the pin switch as seen on the picture and the other two are behind the ribbons the hold the glove compartment up. Before you yank off this peice, make sure and disconnect two harnessess. One that supplies power to compartment box and the other to you BMW flashlight.

Picture 8: Next remove the bottom panel where the dome light is. You simple pop this thing off. Just be careful not to break it because it has a clamp on the left hand side that attaches to the center console.

In the pic you can see this is where I put the valet switch (right of dome light) and the glass break sensor microphone (to the left of the dome light)

Picture 9: This is what it looks like with the entire glove compartment removed. You see the alarm brain with some wire leading to the drivers side. Feel around that area so that you can see where you can fit the wires through.

Picture 10: This is a close up of the computer that can be seen from picture 9. This is where you make most of your connections. The connections needed are as follows with the designated color wires.

Power door lock - blue/red - Location: 54 pin connector (2nd from the left)
Power door unlock - black/white - Location: 54 pin connector
Door Trigger - red/blue - Location: 54 pin connector
Hood Pin - Purple/green - Location: 26 pin connector (1st from the left)
Trunk release - gray/green - Location: 54 pin connector (more on this later)
