Hi Guys, I have a bmw E46 316TI COMPACT 2001 , both of my keys stopped working last week. I tried to reprogrmmed it myself, there was once that the car locked and unlocked afterwards, but rest of the times were that you could hear a wee noise but nothing happened. The thing is I can not open the boots as the wee handle down the back was not working as well.

then I took it to the garage, they said they had reprogammed it and it would only work like 10 secs, they thought that something wrong with my keys but not the fuse. I seriouly doubted it like it could not be them as both of the keys stopped working at the same time.

I really dont want to go to BMW dealers as you know they would charge a lot from me.

thanks a lot for reading my post.

cheers

It can't be the keys if both went at the same time. Also, they are reprogramming for a moment and the keys information does not change. I think it is the control unit that controls the remotes and the locking system.
