  1. General BMW Questions
    So I go into the ocean and leave the key fob in the footwell of the car, take out the manual key and then lock the door manually from the drivers door lock which locks all the doors. When I come back, I open the door with the manual key and the alarm always goes off and everyone looks at me like...

    I have a BMW 330CI 2005 model. Had not used it for 2 months; battery is completely dead. The car is locked and I don’t see even the red light blinking (locking). I do have external battery and jumper cables but can’t open the trunk as it has no keyhole & I can't get in the car. There is a key...

    BMW 320i 2011. Today, I left my girlfriend in the car while I ran into the shop. I locked my car using the fob when I left. When I returned, my girlfriend said she could not get out while I was gone. The internal door latches would open the doors and the internal lock/unlock button did not...
  4. G30 (2017 - Current)
    Just got a G30 last week and it seems like the key fob only works if you're standing next to the thing. As in I was walking into work today and forgot to lock the car, so I stop and press the lock key on the fob. I'm maybe 50ft from the car and it does nothing. Single press, double press, press...

    Hi, I just recently purchased a 1994 318is knowing the passenger door won't open (I'm from Aus so the left door) and after poking around it seems the door is locked and the pin that comes down from the lock cylinder is not connected to anything and is just hanging loose. I've looked at some...

    Thank you for your time!!! My rear passenger door is halfway opening at random times a few times now. It's where my 4yr old sits so I need a fix asap. I have the child lock on so the inside handle still cannot operate/open the door but the outside one works fine. The problem triggers the...

    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...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum and new to BMW. So forgive me if this is the wrong spot. I just bought a 2000 323i used from a private dealer. I had a mechanic friend (William) look at it and test it, and everything seemed fine. I drove it for over an hour on my way home and it was NICE...
  15. BMW Coding and Programming
    I know as a fact that in my country, certain models of BMW have electronically limited max speed as well as a few horsepower cut off to reduce import tax. (328i+, 528i+, M235i) A local coder also claim to be able to remove the "locked" horsepower for a price through coding. I'm wondering if it...

    Key Lock is not working. the car is open right now but the locking switch will not lock or unlock the doors. Key remote is not working as well. Any ideas. Is there something that needs to be replaced or is this an electrical problem that is tied to other things?
