I know one of the forum folks must know the answer to this...
Our 2023 MINI Cooper SE came without an alarm. I'd like to get the car to beep at me when I use the remote to lock it as I walk away. Is the car capable of this if there's no alarm? Can it be configured through bimmercode to do this? If so, what are the steps?

I tried that using Bimmercode but it didn’t work. Perhaps someone else has had better luck?

I believe all you get without the Alarm System is a light flash when you lock/unlock the doors. That's okay with me. I hate those aftermarket alarms that honk the horn when the doors are locked/alarm set.

Confirmation signals from the vehicle
Via the Central Information Display (CID):
  1. "My MINI"
  2. "Vehicle settings"
  3. "Doors/Key"
  4. Deactivate or activate the desired con- firmation signals.
– Locking the vehicle while a device is connected to the socket for the OBD On- board-Diagnosis. For socket for the OBD Onboard Diagnosis, refer to page 261.
The alarm system signals these changes vis- ually and acoustically:
  • – Acoustic alarm:
    Depending on local regulations, the
    acoustic alarm may be suppressed.
  • – Visual alarm:
    By flashing of the hazard warning sys- tem and headlights, where required.
    Do not modify the system to ensure func- tion of the alarm system.
    Overview
    Indicator light on the interior mirror.
    Switching on/off
    The alarm system is switched on or off as soon as the vehicle is locked with the vehi- cle key or unlocked or locked via Comfort Access.
    Opening the doors with the alarm
    system switched on
    The alarm system is triggered when a door is opened if the door was unlocked using the integrated key in the door lock.
    Switching off the alarm, refer to page 83.

  • – "Flash for lock/unlock"
    Unlocking is signaled by two flashes,
    locking by one.
  • – With alarm system:
    "Acoustic signal for lock/unlock"
    Unlocking is signaled by one honk of the horn.
