Hi geox43,

I think that you'll have to visit your BMW dealer and ask them to scan and recode the anti theft unit..

06 Pontiac torrent radio continues to run when ignition is in off and key removed, even after drivers door opened, passenger door open then radio stops

Driver door switch ,ajar switch . This switch is a input to the BCM - body control module .
Retained Accessory Power Description and Operation
Retained accessory power (RAP) is a vehicle power mode that permits the operation of selected customer convenience items after the ignition switch is turned OFF. These selected items will remain in operation until a passenger compartment door or liftgate is opened or until the RAP function timer reaches its shut-off limit.
The class 2 RAP power mode is mapped to GMLAN serial data circuit as Off Awake power mode. Refer to Data Link Communications Description and Operation for more information on data link communications. The BCM monitors the ignition switch signals, battery condition and the doors status to determine whether RAP should be initiated. The modules that support the RAP power mode will operate the systems under their control as required by their RAP power mode strategy.
RAP will end when one of the following conditions is met:
• The BCM detects the opening of a passenger compartment door.
• The RAP timer expires.
• The battery capacity decreases below a prescribed limit.
• Any other ignition switch state is chosen.
The function supported in the RAP power mode is the operation of the radio.

It would go off on it's own in ten min.

Both headlights quit working simotaneously

There are just (3) possible reasons for this:
(a) your headlight switch has failed, or
(b) your headlight relay has failed.
(c) Fuse 1 (25 Amps) has blown

The headlight relay and fuse 1 are located (I think) in a fuse/relay block under the hood.
The headlight switch is part of the "Multi-function Switch" on the steering column.

Here's how to replace the 2001 PT Cruiser multi-function switch:

Multi-Function Switch Removal & Installation
1. Open the hood.
2. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
3. Remove both upper and lower steering column shrouds.
4. Disconnect both posi-lock harness connectors at the rear of the multi-function switch.
5. Remove multi-function switch mounting screws and remove switch from vehicle.

To Install the new multi-function switch:

If replacing the multi-function switch, the combination flasher and windshield wiper/washer switch
must be transferred to the new multi-function switch.

1. Remove the two Torx(R) screws retaining the wiper/washer switch, place next to the new
multi-function switch and install two screws.
2. Place switch into place and install mounting screws. Torque multi-function switch to column
retaining screws to 27 inch-lbs. (3 Nm).
3. Connect both posi-lock harness connectors at the rear of the multi-function switch.
4. Install both upper and lower steering column shrouds.
5. Connect the battery negative cable.
6. Close hood.
7. Verify vehicle and system operation.

When there is a CD playing, there is no problem. But when I take the CD out, the radio does not function properly. It switches back to CD and then changes the radio station every 1-2 minutes!I can not turn...

Unfortunately, this sounds like an internal problem with the radio. Internal as in within the radio itself, not a wiring problem. Not really much you can do about it. Sorry. Probably need a new radio. Good luck.

Power door locks, radio, power trunk lock and remote not working

unfortunately i can only fix the "alternator wine": all you need is a ground loop isolator. it hooks up to your RCA cables in between the radio and amp. the only thing i can think for your other problems is fuses, unless somehow your factory radio controls those functions

2001 Mitsubishi Monteo Sport radio/CD lost functions?

I have seen this before, You should pull the radio out and get the serial number off of the back. Call your dealer and get the radio code. Disconnect and reconnect your battery and input code given by dealer. Usually this occurs when you change or let the battery rundown, it is an antitheft feature. Most of the time you would lose all functionality but in your case there may have been some kind a electrical surge that tripped part off your radio functionality. Please let me know if this works for you.
