  1. General BMW Questions
    Hello. I own a 2000 BMW Z3 2.3. Earlier today I tried to program my keyless entry using the steps from this website. The initial steps worked and I was able to get the car into programming mode and get...

    I have a 1995 540i with a 3 button remote. I have not found many explanations on how to pair this remote to the car. It is not the separate key fob, the buttons are built into the key that turns the ignition. The power locks do work, just not remotely. I have changed the battery and the red LED...
  3. 7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
    Hello all, I will be receiving my 730D Exclusive in 3 weeks, which I am really looking forward to. Recently near my house 3 cars have been stolen (a BMW, a Mercedes and a Range Rover). All the cars have had keyless entry and the thieves work in pairs. One of the neighbour's CCTV cameras...

    Hi According to this article hackers can use a $30 device to unlock ANY keyless entry car. So be warned, and be careful out there. Cheers :D

    I am looking to buy a CPO 5 series. I have a lexus right now that has the keyless entry, push button start and also the thing where you touch the button on the outside of the door handles to lock the car. I find this super convenient bc I don't need to pull my keys out of my purse to lock the...

    Recently bought a used 2001 525i (My first BMW) No FM reception, AM works fine & so does the CD player. Keyless entry remote batteries replaced & I also did the reprogramming procedure. Also replaced each & every fuse. I will attach a picture of what is behind the housing panel in my trunk...

    Howdy, I recently tried replacing the battery inside of my key fob. First attempt was by watching some videos on youtube and going from there. Initially soldered in a nonrechargeable 2016 watch battery and everything worked fine.... For about a week. All I can surmise is that assuming the...

    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
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So here is the deal. I have a 2000 323 with power locks, but there is no keyless entry system. The locks are activated by turning the key in the driver side door. I figure it would be an easier job since all doors have power locks installed and all I would need is some kind of remote switch and...

  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2011 335d and the doors are detected everytime, but often the trunk is difficult. I have to get the key, usually means swivling my hip pocket to the trunk, to get it to work. Is this just the way it works or is it a week sensor back there. Where is the sensor for the trunk?
  13. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    My new X3 28i will be here in a few weeks and have been watching the forums with increasing anticipation to get up to speed on all of the technologies. If the car is running and I get out of my car and walk away from it with the key in my pocket, what does the car do? Can someone still drive...

  15. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 1993 318is and when you lock the door, the drivers door, passenger door and fuel flap lock, (not the boot) and then about a second later all unlock. Then when you lock it again only the drivers door locks. After unlocking it and locking it again everything stays locked, except the boot...

    Hey all, I recently purchased a 2000 528i, the alarm fuse had been removed due to the alarm apparently going off on a whim...I have replaced that fuse and am waiting to see how that goes. I mention it only in case it is related to my real problem. My real question is this. I have the...
