    BMW E90, no confort-access. One of my keys (which I hadn't used in a while) is not working properly - the remote part seems dead. I can start the car with it. Even after using it every day for a week. I cut open the key-fob and measured the rechargeable battery, got 3.04 V. Pressing any button...

    I just bought a 2011 bmw 550i, the ac in the car worked fine on the drive home but when I parked it the next day didn’t work. I checked the charge and it was full, that’s problem number one. Number two my key fob won’t work. I changed the batteries in both key fobs and they will not unlock or...
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I just picked up a 2006 BMW 325i and noticed the key fob does not unlock, lock, or open the trunk. I have replaced all fuses that I have been told to from YouTube tutorials and I know it is not my battery. What could be the issue? Edit: The central locking button works perfectly

    Is there anyway I can replace the standard beep when I unlock my car with the keyfob remote to make the horn sound instead? having trouble locating car in the parking lot
  5. X3 M, X5 M, X6 M, Z3 M & Z4 M
    We have a 2007 X3 and I had to replace the battery. Not paying dealership absurd prices for a car I'm going to get rid of the moment I can get it paid off. So I got a Duralast H8 battery from Autozone and swapped it out myself. Didn't realize I needed to keep some power connected to maintain...

    I disconnected my main battery to change the starter on my 09-E92-CA and left it disconnect over night and now all buttons on key fob only lock and it won't unlock, i changed the key fob battery as well to see if it does solve the problem but it didn't, i can lock using the actual metal key and...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have had this problem on my '97 528i for over a month now but it has gotten to the point where I can't take it anymore. The problem is my car would keep forgetting my keyfob every few days. The car doesn't respond to any of the buttons that I press on the keyfob and I have to go back to...
  8. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I have been playing with the Carly app and there is an option selective central locking - unlock fuel lid, the fuel lid is also unlock, when selective central locking is active So I have BOTH selective central locking and selective central locking key 1 ON. To be honest for key 2nd, 3rd, 4th...
  9. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I have replaced the battery in my 2010 750li's keyfob twice now within a week, even took it to the battery shop in town and they tested it and said it was perfectly fine but my car keeps telling me to replace the battery in it. Is there any way to fix this? my car has the comfort access option.
  10. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    (SOLVED)Something funny happened to me the other day. 2 hours after locking the car I head back to it and the remote won't work. I try the other remote and the same issue... that made me think the battery is gone. After using the regular key to get in I notice the battery is fine but I have an...

    After doing a lot of repairs to my 2007 328xi (sedan), it seems I have misplaced my only key fob, ugghhhhh. Does anyone know if this is a dealer/BMW USA replacement part only or can I simply order a generic replacement online? It seems there are a BUNCH of varied opinions on what can or cannot...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello all! I'm sure this is on the forum somewhere but I live in Northern California and I have a 2011 329i xDrive M Sport Coupe. A friend of mine who works on BMW's (but doesn't live in state) mentioned that the car has to be programmed for utilizing the keyfob lock button that will allow the...
  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    All, Just watched the video below and wanted to do the same on my Keyfob. My keyfob was not working for arming/disarming the X3. I know there are many posts around about doing this but on my case, I would like to point out that the problem relied on a solder point. The negative solder point...

    I have a 2009 BMW X3 LCI E83. I buy on ebay OBD Cable, and all work great. I have coded my car to open and close windows and mirrors using CA and key fob. In general it works, but not quite like I want it. Here is what I would like to achieve: 1. Whenever I lock the car using single press of...

    Looking to get another transponder/ keyless entry key for my 540i. I'm looking for a blank as my local hardware store can cut it for me. Anyone have any leads or links? I've tried Ebay and haven't had a whole lot of luck so far.

  18. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I ordered a brand new key from BMW and they tried to program it but it wouldn't program. They told me they would have to look at it to see whats wrong. Anyone else have this issue and how much did it cost to fix? I want to get an idea before I take it in and end up with a $3,000 bill
