    I have 2 keys for my 2005 BMW 545. Both of them stopped working around the same time. I bought a new key from the dealership and this new key still doesn't work. I checked door and remote door related fuses 10, 12, 11, 27, 22, and 24 and they're ok. Does anyone have suggestions on what I...

    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...
  5. E70 X5 M and E71 X6 M (2010 - 2015)
    Hi everyone, first post for me. I've searched through the site to find the answer to this question but keep finding conflicting answers. I bought a second key for my 2013 X5M with CAS (ordered from BMW with proof of ownership), it works fine to unlock and start the vehicle (in the key slot...

    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...

    I recently bought a 2009 BMW 328i and it only came with one key. I saw BMW keys on eBay for cheap and was wondering if you could program yourself or have it done cheaper than buying a new factory key. Thanks

    I have a 2016 X5 with comfort access. Is it possible to have key #2 be a clone of key #1 and have identical settings on both keys?

    First things first - I drive an 05' 745Li I managed to lock my keys in my trunk. I loaded my arms full of stuff, set my keys down to get more stuff, then forgot to pick them back up. I called my insurance company and they sent a lock smith out who was unable to get into the vehicle. My...

    Well after the car was locked then the trunk was open and the keys were set on the trunk and closed the trunk with keys in it ...I read lots of threads on this and basically everyone recommends to get a new key from the dealership , however on the passenger side top corner of the trunk you can...

    I locked my keys inside my dads 1998 328i and the runk is unlocked but there is no latches for the fold down seats in the trunk but there are latches in the cabin. If anyone can offer advice that would be great. :eek:
  12. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Today I realized my spare key was missing. I finally found it in the pocket of a jacket in the trunk. The jacket has been in the trunk for about a week. I drove the car (2013 535xi) all week, locking the car as usual. With my other cars (06 and 07 GS Lexus) I would get a dummy alarm if I...

    I don't have the original key any more, and after the battery was dead for a few weeks, the valet key will no longer open the trunk. Any ideas? The shop near me said to get a duplicate mainkey from the dealership - $170! Help?
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I've got a 2010 535iX with comfort access. I wanted to get another key fob so I just called two BMW dealerships in North Houston. Both said the a new fob would be around $240 and another metal slide key an additional $36.00. Is this a reasonable cost? Searching on the forum I saw where someone...

    I have recently had a bluetooth system installed by a dealer in my 2007 328i. At that time, they had to update the BC software. This is when I have noticed something different. Up to that point, I have used 2 separate keys to track highway vs. city driving fuel economy. I have a long commute so...

    Hello all, a question? I drive a 2003, 330xi, all my keys (3) stopped activating my power locks. I went to dealer and was told I needed to buy new keys. I, for a period of time, kept opening door using key on the driver side door lock, until latched propped off and I couldn't get into vehicle...

    Ok, so after reading through a thread on which brand of oil to use for my 320d somebody mentioned that after taking they're car to a dealer for an oil change one of the workman also managed to reprogramme his key so that when they drive the car the doors automatically lock. Since mine doesn't do...

    this has happened twice to me in my 2003 325ci: I put my key in the ignition, and i cant even turn it to position 1. the steering wheel appears to be locked. I can't tell if an icon is lit on the dashboard because without turning the key to position 1, there is no power in the car. The key is...
