    well. anyways. when you get this....

    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.
    nothing.
    Checked the fuse and its fine.
    Disconnected fuel actuator.
    Tried all sequences again.
    Nothing.

    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.

    Any ideas at all?
    Does it sound like a bad key?

    Thanks for any help.
