SOURCE: BMW remote control problem

I have a e60 525i that I just brought and it has the same problem, the owners manual suggests driving with the key in the ignition for a long time as the batteries are rechargable and may have gone flat, i have tried this and it doesnt seem to work

i also read something about getting water in the aerial about the rear window and that wrecks the receiever. My car isn;t under warranty so not looking forwarding to taking it to bmw

SOURCE: E36 BMW 318I CENTRAL LOCKING

try locking and unlocking the car with the key 3 times slowly ,other than that i have no idea ?? another trick is to disconnect battery and join the cables together for a few minutes to discharge any capacitors that may be holding a charge in the computer..Only other thing i can think of is the main dealers who have the right connectors and software to re set it all .sorry i havent been of any help

SOURCE: Car that I am looking at has remote keyless entry

My advice, If it's not a bmw garage then look around for another Z4. You would have to get the key programed to that car which will be expensive.

I do not know the exact cost but for peice of mind phone the bmw garage and ask then how much that would cost to fix.

I would look around for another, when spending that sort of money you want everything with the car to be spot on with no missing bits.

Bmw z4 radio shows disabledf?


Did your Z4 lose all battery power? If so, the have to enter the radio security code. If you don't have it, you might have to pull the radio out as its usually on the back of the radio. Hopefully it's on the card that has the key code, and wheel lock code.

I have a 2004 BMW Z4 and a light was left on and the battery died. I replaced the battery and when I turn the ignition all of the ligkts inside and out work. The locks work with the key remote and the top...


You should have just purchased a battery charger and then you wouldn't have disconnected the battery and un-paired the alarm system and immobilizer. There would have been enough residual energy in a flat battery to keep the immobilizer happy.

Disconnect the battery completely for at least 2 hours. Hold the positive and negative terminals together for 5 minutes. Put the key in the ignition and connect the negative lead of the battery. Connect the positive in one swift movement. Leave the vehicle for 5 minutes to reset and re-pair the chip in the key and the chip in the ignition lock.

It would have worked if the key was in the ignition when you connected the new battery.

I have a BMW Z4 2003 2.5 with the exhaust emission


The Exhaust Emission Light can come on if the car is driven slowly over short distances.It will not happen on cars driven at speed. A short trip of ten miles at over 3000 revs should reset the warning light,although it may not go out for a couple of days after you have tried it . Hope this helps and saves a bill at the local dealer. JK

Z4 Central Locking problem - drivers door.


looks like you will need a drivers door lock actuator (contains the latch)if the door will not unlock with the remote either.the lock cylinder usually will fail since you had to use it everytime to unlock the door. the lock cylinder is vin specific so expect a delay when its ordered from the dealership.i would probably expect around $800 for the complete repair, kinda pricey but the dealership will go out of its way to retain a customer.
