    I have 2 keys now not working on my 04 X5. I have sent one to Scott, who said it worked and returned it. Since the interior dome light works, he also said that it wasnt a GM3 problem. Fuses are OK. I decided to open up the rear inside upper hatch panel and uncover the FVZ antenna module. I...

    Hello! I have a 2009 x6 which I purchased with the remote key that cost around $1000 each. Both of them fail to charge. (Constant message: key battery discharged) How can I get them charged? Can I send them somewhere to have the battery replaced? The only dealer in my area is not an option -- he...

    I just bought 2003 BMW 525i Sedan yesterday, and I noticed my remote key opens only driver's door. Is it normal for this model?

    Tried to get in the car today, no go with the remote, used the real key to get in the car (need fuse 57 for my driver side door from what I hear) put the key in the ignition and the computer started but the car wouldn't, all that showed up was the key (no hash) in the warning window and it...

    If you guys can help with this one I'd appreciate it. I've got an 04 530D with 91k on the clock that has this intermittent fault. The strange thing is that the car will start as normal most of the time, but when there are temperature extremes, such as when the car has been parked in direct...

    I keep getting an error message saying "Remote Key! Engine may not restart!" Not sure what to do. It happens while I'm driving, and the key is in the ignition. I don't have Smart Access, so as far as I know there is no battery in the key fob. Anybody out there having this issue and/or have...

    I've tried all of the processes from other forums already and nothing seems to work. The battery in the key is still good also. Is there any recommendations to what I should do now.

    Hello all, I have done some searching on the site regarding the central locking issues and possible resolutions. As of right now the only thing I haven't tried is checking the fuse at the trunk area. I will do that tonight. However, I wanted to explain the problem as it doesn't seem to fit...
