    Hello! Please can someone help me? I bought my car with a broken key. I repaired it and the key flashes when I try to pair it (exactly as instructed), but the car does not respond. Unfortunately, I do not know if it worked before. I bought a new key but also can not pair. I checked the cables...

    Does anyone have experience either replacing or disabling the armrest valet lock on the E93? My valet lock motor is noisy, as if the gears are slipping. I'm quite happy to disable it. I have tried merely pulling the wiring from the terminal, but that also appears to disable the glovebox, and...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I got a E61 04 530D, where my remote has been bad for some time (diamond type), had to hold it close to the antenna in the spoiler to unlock/lock. Now it has stopped working completely, and I have done some searching and troubbleshooting. I have changed battery to a new rechargeable 3V, but...

    Hi guys and thanks for reading, I'm sure you've heard a million times before about a key fob not working, but I just wanted to list my symptoms to see if anyone can give me a definite answer on whether I need a new key, or my GM5 repaired before I have to splash out on a repair. First off the...

    I just installed a new (used) tailgate on my 2001 525 Touring. That brought some electrical problems, such as 1. Trunk actuator doesn't work 2. Central locking doesn't work (both keys are dead) 3. Airbag light is on I've checked the fuses and everything seems to be OK. All the wires from the...

    I recently bought a 2001 e46 but i cant lock it. The middle lock button on the key is broke (as in the button itself) Ive tried locking it manually with the key but the key spins freely in the lock. Ive tried using the lock button in the centre console but nothing. I can only lock the passenger...

    Hello all, First of all I'm new to this forum and to BMWs, so my question might sound a little silly but please allow it. Central locking is not working on my car, the key fob doesn't locks or unlocks the doors. however, i think its working because it unlocks the boot and i'm able to open the...

    I have an intermittent issue where the central locking will repeatedly lock and unlock the doors whilst the engine is running. Has anyone seen this type of issue before? Cheers Roy

    I replaced my window regulator (right rear passenger door) in my E83 and now the central locking system is not working! Anyone have any ideas as to how to get it working again. Is there a way to re-program it. The keys still work but the inside central locking button does not.. Need advice..

    Hi all I’m a new member and hoping you can help! My drivers lock broke a few weeks ago withy the key spinning either 90 degrees left or right with no resistance and with the lock doing nothing, something has obviously stopped working/broken inside the lock. I’ve been using the central locking...

    Hello all. Just bought a 316i se touring from a mate for silly money and love it. The only thing wrong was that only one key worked the central locking/alarm. I tried to charge it with a decent 100 mile trip but still didn't work. As your aware, the dealer is asking for 140 quid for a...

    All, Our new to us 03 540 iT M-Sport is confusing me. :eeps: Sometimes the central locking system will lock at a certain mph and sometimes it doesn't. Is there a combination of buttons i am hitting on the key that is turning this thing on or off? I referred to the owners manual but all it...

    I have a 2000 325ci (2 door coupe). Recently the driver's door doen't unlock using the remote, the passenger door, trunk and filler cap are unlocked. The key does unlock the driver's door when inserted to the lock and turned manually. The button on the centre console locks the passenger door...
  20. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I recently bought a 1991 e34 525se, everything works great except a couple of things: Firstly when I press the central locking locking remote the locks "bounce" back instantly. To open the doors I then have to use the key in the drivers door, turn the key as far as it will go and then holding it...
