    I recently bought a 2014 BMW 328i that doesn't recognize its key anymore. I opted to buying a used set of ECU, immobilizer, and key that were pulled from the same car because the original immobilizer was presumably damaged, and so that I don't have to go through the hassle of programming a new...

    If the immobilizer is active (armed), does the engine turn over (cranking but not starting) when you insert the key and try to start it? Or nothing would happen (as in no crank, just the dash lights)? Thanks

    I have a 2013 X3 xDrive28i. I tried to unlock my door with my key fob, but car would not unlock. I then manually unlocked the driver side door. The alarm sounded at this point. I tried to start the engine, but pressing the Start button did absolutely nothing. The alarm stopped. I tried to...

    Okay, so I have done plenty of research. On this, found lots of threads, but nothing that helped me, so after 3 weeks with no car, I am making my own post, hopefully someone can help me. I have a 1994 ble 530i, 3.0 v8 5 speed, has always ran and drove great, but a guy hit my front bumper...

    I recently got my car stuck in a snow drift, just after i got it out the radiator broke and the car immediately shut off (the plastic peace the hose connects to broke off). So i replaced the radiator, water pump, and thermostat. Now that it's all back together it won't start. It turns over fine...

    Firstly I'd like to thank Chris Deegan, who ever you are, for excellent tutorial on how to swap a dash... I couldn't have done it with out it. However when I pulled the glove box out the immobilizer switch , which I didn't know I had, broke off. I've cut the wires and bypassed it so it starts...

    Hi, just like to say I am new to this BMW Forum, have read over it and quite like the responses and feedback overall, but sadly have still not managed to fix my problem as I don't want to go spending alot of money on something and not know for sure that it will or not fix my problem. The...

    I bought a 1995 540i a couple of years ago and it has begun to "let me down" without warning. I hit the security off button on the key and I receive the normal "Beep Beep" that the security system is off, the doors unlock, etc. When I try to start the car, it cranks, but the fuel system does not...

    When I bought my car it was delivered with only 1 key.... I since have made a copy for an emergency, but have no electronics in the FOB. I have been asking around town for a while but never thought of asking you, fellow Bimmer bros. Does anyone know of a locksmith in SC (NC or GA close to the...

    Dear All, I am new to this site. First of all I would like to saw BMW cars are amazing!! I used to own an E90 BMW 320D M Sport in Le Mans blue and absolutely loved it. I say I used to own one because 48hrs ago it was stolen during the night. It was parked in a well lit street which is in a...

    Hi All, I would like to collect the reasons for a scenario when the car doesn't start at all and there is no clicking sound from the solenoid. Usually people recommend to check the battery voltage which should be really the first step. /// obsolete part, I was wrong with this: I also realized...

    Hi all... Been lurking on this website since I bought my 2003 325i Wagon about a month ago. Love the car till now... Seen some similar posts, so forgive if this is a repeat. Car was running great, 56,000 miles, went to start it the other day and all the dash lights and everything lit up as...

    Hi, I was working on my 2002 X5 3.0i yesterday on a stalled engine problem. We disconnected the battery terminal and pull all the fuses out in the glove box to check. All fuses are OK. Now the engine can't crank at all. The radio etc. still working. Anybody has any idea? Would appreciate your...

    ok, since the temperature has gotten cold, the car won't crank. all dummy lights come on, radio is fine. had battery and alternator tested at autozone. all tested GOOD. when the car will actually crank, it fires up just fine, like a full charge. no hesitation at all. this is an intermittent...
