stock alarm and angel eyes...

is it possible to wire the angel eyes to blink with the factory alarm ?? once for locking and twice for unlocking as the alarm sounds ?? i don't know if it's possible with the stock alarm or if you need aftermarket alarm ? thanks

I haven't bought my angel eyes yet, but as far as I know, they use ballasts. That means they have to charge, and don't turn on instantaneously. I think there's a slight delay, so I'm not sure you could 'pulse' them with the alarm. Or maybe I'm wrong.

What you can do, and what I'm gonna do, is wire them up so they turn on using an accessory button on the alarm remote, completely independent of the parking light circuit. It'll be a few weeks yet, but I'll post a DIY once I get them.

mine didn't have a ballast, they just need to hook up to a power wire and they're on when you turn that power wire on, or give it power whatever the terminology is.

sounds like a fan clutch issue, actually, after looking at that vid twice:

See when I did my underdrive pulleys, my belt tensioner snapped on me (Almost blew up in my face), and I replaced, and I had somewhat of a similar sound to yours but less noticeable, and after that it went away. So like I said it could either be a fan clutch issue or a belt tensioner.

The first problem is that the stock BMW alarm doesn't flash the corner lights, it only chirps the alarm. If you modify the alarm to flash the parking lights, then you're set, that is if your halos are wired to the parking lights. On and aftermarket alarm you may still have problems if your alarm is wired to flash the turn signals instead of the parking lights.

A simple trick would be to wire your 12v+ siren output, by way of a diode, to your running light wiring. That way your running lights and halos would flash when the alarm chirps, but would light solid when the alarm is going off. Not a great solution either, but it's an option.

yea haile that noise is your belt tensioner, i had a similar noise, b/c there is a little tiny plastic piece that prevetns water from coming in and i was too lazy to replace it so i would just spray some WD40 in there (while the car was on so it would circulate, and yes splash a little) and it worked
