No Bus means the engine computer is not communicating with the body computer or the transmission control module.
I would check the power and connections for the engine computer first.

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.

Bmw e36 immobilised, iginition lights come on, but the starter wont turn over. how do i start the car to get it to a garage, i dont wont to pay the £70 for recovery truck


BMW E36 immobilizer Hope the following will help. Had similar problems. The transmitter buttons on keys is for central locking and alarm. Inside the key at the front there is a small electronic/magnetic chip that looks like a block. About 8mm long, 2mm deep and 4mm wide, not connected to any pc board. This is the immobilizer. It must match the receiver that is located behind the ignition switch. If it is loose and too far away from the receiver it won?t deactivate it. If you made a spare key it will switch on electrics but won?t start the car. If you don?t have an immobilizer chip any alarm shop will be able to program a new chip or install a new pair for your keys. There is a way to disable the immobilizer but rather have it fix and protect your car. I read an article somewhere (perhaps bmw e36 blog) of people removing this immobilizer. Good luck
