  1. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    No judgement: washed key fob and it worked for 1 day. Next day while driving, anti-theft alarm/siren going off. Very unnverving experience on the highway sounding like the police, but with no police in sight. Had to pull over and shut the vehicle off to stop the alarm. Third day: Was unable to...
  2. G30 (2017 - Current)
    Just got a G30 last week and it seems like the key fob only works if you're standing next to the thing. As in I was walking into work today and forgot to lock the car, so I stop and press the lock key on the fob. I'm maybe 50ft from the car and it does nothing. Single press, double press, press...
  3. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    Car was in an accident before i bought it and idk how bad it was. OEM key fob turns car on but does not lock, unlock, or open trunk. Brand new key fob i paid someone to program starts card but does not lock, unlock, or open trunk. Talked to module repair company and they said if the car can be...
  4. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    X5 E70 only starts with the key fob in the ignition slot, audio system stop working, and getting the warning tones not working error for reverse (backing up). The comfort access features haven't worked for over year, but the key fob worked correctly for starting the car, until current symptoms...
  5. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hey X5 family. Im having an issue with a rattling sound coming from the engine of my X5. It sounds like its coming from the top of the engine and it just started maybe a week or so ago. There are no check engine light codes or warnings. The only recent work on the X5 has been the spark plugs and...

    Can this key fob be used on another car that uses the same model? I bought this key and the programming for the car on 9/1/2020, moved, came home recently, car is no longer in my position, please, don’t ask(!). I’d love to sell it to some for 1/2 price but I’m not sure if if can be reused...
  8. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Hey guys, My wife's key fob on our 2017 X1 F48 stopped working, all the symptoms of a dead battery. However I've changed the battery and it's still not working. We can still access / start the car with her key using the old school key to get in the door, and pressing the fob against the...
  9. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I recently made some electronic additions to my 2009 X3, and after installing a dashcam and reversing camera, for some reason my car does not allow me to lock it with the key fob immediately after exiting the vehicle. I also installed a new head unit, but this begun happening prior to that. It...
  10. G20 (2019 - Current)
    I’m hoping someone can figure this out because I’m stumped. I have a 2019 330 x drive with comfort access. For the year I’ve had it, I haven’t had issues with my comfort access until about a month ago when my fob started to get a low battery warning in my dash. About a week ago, the function...
  11. G20 (2019 - Current)
    My G20 first presented this problem 10 months ago: when I leave it parked in the sun, on a hot day, the keys will not open the car, neither make it startup. I have to use the physical key (by removing the cap on the door handle) and starting the car with the near the steering wheel. The mobile...

    07 328i I have recently joined this group in hopes to find the answer to my problem. I have seen it asked a couple times but no answers or results. And I feel my problem is a tad different than others I haveve read. Ok here it goes. My key fob tends not to work until I start the car, kill the...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I have determined that my key fob is randomly opening my trunk and setting off my alarm's panic mode. It will be in a drawer in my kitchen, and the trunk will open or the panic will go off. These are both controlled by the same button. I removed the battery from this fob, and the...
  14. E89 Z4 (2009 - current)
    I have a 2016 E89 28i. I'm hoping someone here can assist. I've looked on the forum but haven't found anything on my problem. Up until last week, my key fob worked fine to remotely open the top. Press and hold the open button and the top went down like magic. As of about 5 days ago the...
  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My 2001 325cic has been sitting for about 2 months. The key fob will not unlock the door, there are no outside door locks to stick a key in. I got the trunk open and removed the ski pass. My 7 year old daughter squeezed through and tried to open doors from inside. No luck. The handle could be...

    So, I no longer have any cars this works on - I sold the car for parts and the buyer didn't care about the remote, which worked out well because at the time I had the idea I was going to need it on another project. But I've since moved on to other things and don't plan on needing this...

    Hi All- I drive a 2015 328i. Yesterday a weird thing happened. I was pretty sure that I had locked by car with all doors closed when I parked it at a shopping center parking lot. When I came back to the parking lot, to my surprise, I see the door is open but locked. This is kinda weird to me...

    Hello everyone, so this is my first post, however, I've searched EVERYWHERE to find answers to my problem & no one seems to have it. So I have a 07 335i and my CA doesn't work, none of the features do, I checked the fuses & it's all well, I also noticed the unlock,lock & trunk buttons on...
