    Default Warning chime

    It's that time of year where I leave for work while it's dark and get to work after the sun is up. Leaving work last night I found I'd left my lights on and the battery was dead. This is the second time this has happened to me in about a month. I'm used to having a chime (my old VW), but the 530i only gives me the warning message. Is their a fuse I should be checking, something else or does the e34 not have a chime?

    AFAIK e34 doesn't have a lights-on chime. i also get only the written warning.

    I get a chime when I leave my lights on and open the door with the car off. Maybe it doesn't do this in US spec E34s?

    My '94 chimes at me when I leave the lights on, after I turn off the car and open the door.

    The speaker inside the chime unit under the dash can burn out. Does it chime at other times, like if you pull the parking brake while you're moving or turn on the hourly chime on the OBC?
