I just purchased a 2001 530i. The keyless entry doesnt work. None of the buttons.
When I use the key in the door it does lock and unlock all doors, and beeps to sound the alarm.
I have tried the following.
Turn key to position 1 (for less then 5 secs)
Take key out
Hold near rear view mirror
Press and hold unlock button while pressing lock button 3 times
door locks do not cycle
i have also tried turning key to position 2. nothing
i have tried turning on and off 5 times fast. nothing
i have tried holding the lock button and pressing unlock button 3 times. nothing
i have basically tried every possible sequence of the above
The fuel door DOES NOT lock when doors are locked. I looked at fuse #53 and it was blown.
I replaced it.
tried all different sequences again.
Checked the fuse and its fine.
Disconnected fuel actuator.
Tried all sequences again.
I even had te key charging in the ACC position for 4 hours last night. I would let it sit, go turn over the engine every 20-40 mins.
