When I come back, I open the door with the manual key and the alarm always goes off and everyone looks at me like...

    I am having two issues on my 07 E61 that I am unsure if they are related or just coincident.

Initially I thought that the key fob battery had died and...

    Hi guys, I'm new to this forum, it looks great! My problem is this: Bought a 520D Touring 2008. One key works and it seems it was the only one ever used. The battery is on the way out but still works if you get closer to the roof spoiler. The other "new" key worked in the ignition but didn't...

    If you have the diamond shaped key and it’s not unlocking or locking the car you may need to replace the internal battery. It normally charges as you drive the car but if the battery is worn out it won’t hold the charge as well. Here is a video showing you how to complete.

    Hello. Suddenly central locking from the key stopped working. I tried reprogramming the key by pressing the buttons on it but I didn't succeed.

    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...
