Key Memory problem!

When I drive my 2005 330ci ZHP my doors do not automatically lock...however when i previously had a 2004 325xi everytime I got into the car , turned it on, and drove, the doors automatically locked. I read on bmwusa.com about the Key Memory, and it says it comes standard on my 2005 330ci, so WHY are my doors not locking when i turn the car on and drive away..it states "Key Memory can also be programmed to relock the vehicle automatically when it reaches 5 mph"...if that so..how do i program the key memory to do this because it is not locking!

RTFM. Your dealer should have given you the key programming options. I suggest you study a) the sales brochure, and b) the owner's manual. You will find the answers to lots of your questions.

As obmd1 stated above, the dealer will acutally perform the programming.

Think about any other dealer-programmed options (alarm activation, running lights, etc) so you can have them all done at once.

It was the coolest thing....I remember it like yesterday. Parents should get that kind of orientation!!!... He said he took the liberty of programming the ket for my preferences of doorlocks, daytime running lights, and one other thing I forgot....and asked if they were right....

I'm surprised that some of the dealers don't inform their new clients about the programming options - it's supposed to be part of the new car orientation, IIRC. When the dealer I bought the X5 from called to let me know the car was in, she asked about my preferences for the programming. With the 325, the dealer (not the same as the X) didn't mention anything about programming, I had to ask him.
