Hi, if the car stay for long time the computer box lost memory. Now is not reading the key. You need to program your key again by BMW manufacturer. Also on bmw the alarm is connected to computer box too.

SOURCE: I have a 95 VW Jetta III that I just purchased.

Insert the key into the door lock on the driver side and move it to the unlock position two times quickly. That should turn off the alarm.

If the passkey is messed up, there will be a light on the dash that says security, or have a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If there is no light when the key is turned forward, then its NOT a passkey problem.

320D E46 BMW 2000 engine won't start. Batery indicator is OK, central lock is working.


If your battery is good and all of your other electrical systems work fine then chances are it is your starter that is bad. However if the engine turns over but just won't start then you most likely have an electrical problem such as a bad ignition switch or ECM. I hope this helps you out.

it has a sensor fault but the problem is finding the fault ,best advice here is to ask BMW dealer to have a look for you as sometimes this sort of fault could be anything from a sensor to a microprocessor and without the correct software its very difficult to locate
