Central Locking problems after battery replacement. Ideas?
Posted this in the General section - but it was suggested I post here as well - here goes.
This all pertains to our 2003 X5 3.0.
Hadn't driven the car for several weeks - and found the battery dead the other day. Jumped it (carefully following directions in manual) - drove it around for a while - seemed to restore a reasonble charge.
However - the keys/fobs no longer work to lock or unlock the car. Must insert the key in the drivers door handle. This manual method works as expected. But the keys/fobs don't work anymore. ALSO: The lock/unlock button inside the car no longer works.
Having had weird behavior in my 540i when the battery was near-dead, I decided to try replacing the battery. Did that, but that has not improved anything. Still have the same problems.
I have tried the following:
-- Checked all central locking fuses - all ok.
-- Tried to reprogram both keys (via the directions found elsewhere on this forum) - no response. Did this before and after replacing the battery.
-- Replaced the battery.
So now I'm out of DIY ideas. Anybody have any other bright ideas?
