    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...

    I have a 2001 E46 325 Ci. I was having a heater issue, so went through the fuses to see if I had a burnt fuse. After checking the fuses, the car no longer turns over. Putting the key in position one and two is all normal with power and associated lights, but nothing when I turn to start. I...

    Is your original BMW E38 key remote worn? Do you find it old fashioned? There are several opportunities for key remote upgrades. Personally I chose the Bentley style flip key remote. I bought several keys. I got my local locksmith to cut the keys. The Programming and initializing I did...

    Hello, So I already posted here on the same issue, but never really fixed it. My key only works for trunk and ignition (physically), for the drivers door I have a separate key, which implies that there is a new lock. Now, I recently was able to program the key, so now with a press of a button...
