: Key does not read... ???

05-22-2008, 10:59 AM
I bought a used 2005 M3 with 44,500 miles. When I first took it to the dealer and he put my key in their little reader machine, it didn't work. He mentioned it is a rare thing but he's seen it before. Now that I'm trying to purchase extended maintenance from a dealer outside of my state, they have asked me for a "key read printout" which I guess I can't get.

Should I be worried about my key not reading on their machine? Can this be fixed? Oh yeah and I don't have a spare or anything...

Order a new key from the dealer, get it coded, and put it in the ignition, it'll download the info.
