Hi geox43,

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

My 2001 century buick wont start new battery all lights come on no clicking radio plays


A few checks here,,, if the vehicle was otherwise in good working order prior to battery exchange , check that all the "+" cables are connected securely to the battery positibe post. it's unlikely to be the Negative post. Check heavy cable from starter motor is securely connected also. check "nuteral" inhibitor switch on transmission is operational ! Good luck

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:

Note:
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

Check the bulb under the engine hood. Sometimes the tilt switch goes band and the light stay's on from time to time since it's exposed to the out side. Hope that would help you.

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.
