  1. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Picked up a lovely 316 Ti E46 2004 for a song and have gradually been working on it to bring it back to where it should be. Remote keys don't work and I presume its the coils inside but thought I'd just check the central locking fuses first (if it was going to be a simple fix then woop-de-doo)...
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    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...
  3. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi there amigos! I have a 525i 2001 M sport, few weeks ago I was driving and suddenly the CD stopped working but the radio was on with the sound to the max, no controls from steering for radio and no way to stop it not even fromthe knob, I have the original sound system, "executive" or...
  4. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I have recently changed the 2 AAAA batteris in my webasto remote and now i can’t start the heater from the remote. It works fine to start the heater from the Idrive. So there is 3 buttons on the remote, I/O, start and stop. Normally you hold the I/O and release it, a green light is lit, then you...
  5. E89 Z4 (2009 - current)
    Hello, I am thinking of getting the Gap-Tech remote control to enhance opening and closing the roof remotely. Has anyone got one of these? Is it worthwhile? Thanks Stephen
  6. E89 Z4 (2009 - current)
    Hello, I know I can lower the roof and windows by pressing and holding the 'Open' button on the remote. There seems to be no option to remotely close everything. Is this correct or am I missing something? Thanks Stephen
  7. 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...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Yea, I know it has been hashed out a hundred times on here but I can't seem to reconcile all the answers. Can anybody tell me with absolute certainty what I HAVE to do to get a spare key fob, with a cut metal key, for my 2011 328i? It does NOT have Comfort System. I have one working fob now...
  9. Southwest Regional - AZ, NM, NV, OK, TX, and UT
    Hi all, At this point this is just a feeler. I am from California and am potentially considering purchasing a vehicle out-of-state. I have located a 335d in Plano that I am interested in. Obviously before I purchase a car I would want to verify the condition and get a PPI done. I read some...
  10. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Guessing that all of the M235i/M240i convertible owners already know this info. (assuming it also works on the 228i/230i) Not sure how we did not know that the BMW M235i Convertible Key FOB can open and close the convertible top. We found this accidentally when my wife pressed it in the correct...
  11. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Ok I'm new here but I'm having trouble with my 04 545i. The keyless entry doesn't work and I bought it like that. I tried the pairing method but it did not work for me and I even got a new key for it but it still did not work. The dealership told me that the previous owner somehow locked the...
  12. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I got a E61 04 530D, where my remote has been bad for some time (diamond type), had to hold it close to the antenna in the spoiler to unlock/lock. Now it has stopped working completely, and I have done some searching and troubbleshooting. I have changed battery to a new rechargeable 3V, but...
  13. F07 Gran Turismo (2010 - 2017)
    Hello! Is there a way to close the hatchback of the 550G using my fob? The car is in my garage, with the hatch open, and tthe garage door closed. When I try to open the garage door it moves up a few inches then hits the semi open hatch and stops. Thanks for ANY advice or creative ideas.
  14. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hi Guys, I'm new here and I'd be really glad if someone from here could help me. I've bought an E38 730d (1999 October), and received 2 keys with it. It's the newer style key (diamond key). However, both keys start the car, both of them are able to lock it (using the lock cylinder on the...
  15. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Does anybody know where I can get a replacement rear seat entertainment controller / remote for my 2011 535i? I've asked my local dealer and they don't have them, and I can't find it available online. Any help / guidance is appreciated!
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2008 bmw 328i convertible with comfort access. I purchased a blank key online to use as a valet key. I cant seem to find a tutorial on how to porgam this key to my car. I tried putting it inside the ignition slot and starting the car (while my original remote was in my pocket) still...
  17. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Just writing a post to vent. Before I got my 2015 x3, I thought it would be so cool to enter my destination via the iPhone remote app and have it automatically sent to my car. Registered with BMW Assist, downloaded the app, and it worked!... until I updated the app... hasn't worked since. :-(...
  18. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I recently had my keys repaired in UK. They also have new rechargeable batteries in them. I programmed my keys for my 2006 BMW 325Ci Convertible. They now lock and unlock the doors, even open the convertible top but they no longer unlock my trunk. Since they lock/unlock the doors, that should...
