Question about 1988 BMW 5 Series

Open Question

All windows and sunroof open without command

1999 323i w/power windows & sunroof. Ignition off, exit car, lock car. then 2 minutes to 3 hours later the windows and sr come open by themselves ! Is it something to do with the "comfort relay"? I know the remote control has a "windows down" feature when the remote to unlock is depressed twice being held down for 5 seconds on the second depression. Is this some sort of "mode" that can be reset?
This is driving my fiance crazy...it's not safe for her to park outside....

If the vehicle is in Deadlock mode then a slim jim will not work. A good locksmith should get it open with no problems.

SOURCE: Help 10 codes on 323i!

These codes will have to be cleared and the car driven through a drive cycle, maybe a couple of times, is the check engine light off? Also you should check your MAF sensor it may need to be cleaned or replaced and makes sure there are no holes in your intake tubing. Hope this helps, let me know.

SOURCE: 1993 318i windows and sunroof appear to have no power

I have a 1993 bmw 318i and the same problem..no power to the windows or sunroof and no lights on any of the window or sunroof switches.The ANSWER is take the kick panel of the driver side locate the blue relay next to the orange or brown relay.Take the blue relay out and either replace it or take the blue cap off the relay and check the solder to all pins.There is one or more pins where the solder has crack..just buy a soldering gun and some solder .015 diameter and re solder all the cracked solder on the pins and it is back to normal.

2002 pontiac bonneville locks and interior lights doesnt work


This may be a bad rear integrated control module. or connection or wiring to it.
REAR INTEGRATION MODULE (RIM)
The CTD system is an internal function of the rear integration module (RIM) which utilizes class 2 serial data and various switch input information to perform CTD functions. When the RIM detects an unauthorized entry, the RIM sends a message via the serial data circuit to the DIM to activate the horns and exterior lamps. The RIM has 5 basic modes. Disarmed, standby, delayed, armed, and alarm for operating the CTD system. The 5 modes transition from one step to the next in the following order:

When in the disarmed mode, ignition is OFF and any door is open the RIM commands the instrument cluster to flash the SECURITY indicator via the class 2 serial data circuit. The RIM has the CTD system in a disarmed mode until the following conditions are detected:

Ignition key turned to the OFF position
Any door open
Doors locked by either the power door lock switch or the LOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter

The RIM enters the standby mode when the above conditions are detected. In standby mode the RIM commands the instrument cluster to illuminate the SECURITY indicator via the class 2 serial data circuit. If all the doors are closed and the LOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter is used, the RIM enters the delayed mode.
When the last door is closed, the RIM enters the delayed mode for 30 seconds . In delayed mode the RIM commands the instrument cluster to illuminate the SECURITY indicator on steady via the class 2 serial data circuit.
After 30 seconds , the RIM enters the armed mode. In armed mode the RIM commands the instrument cluster to turn off the SECURITY indicator via the class 2 serial data circuit. Any forced entry activates the alarm mode.

IMPORTANT: The CTD system can be armed with the windows or sunroof open.

Here's a description the sun roof
Power Sunroof System Components
The power sunroof system consists of the following components:
• Sunroof module
• Sunroof switch
• Sunroof motor, with 2 hall effect sensors and limit switch
• Sunroof window
• Sunroof sunshade panel
• Power supply for the sunroof module: RAP 25 A
• Ground G402

Override
The override function is used when needing to force a closing of the sunroof window. To override the system:
Turn ignition to ON.
Rotate the sunroof switch to the close position.
Press upward.
The sunroof switch data 6 circuit, or override circuit, will become grounded at the sunroof module. As long as the sunroof module sees this input, it will continue to slide the sunroof window to close, regardless of the other sunroof switch data circuits inputs.

When I unlock my 2002 vw golf all the electric windows open together ?


.Just to be sure, do you know that when you insert your key into either the driver or passenger (front) doors, and turn the key over to the far LEFT (in the process of unlocking the door), and hold the key in that position for more than a second or so, your windows will all roll down?? This is supposed to happen - it is a benefit of owning a VW! It is all described in the owner's manual.

Now the other side of this function, is that if when you get out of the car, and any of the windows are left open (including the sunroof if you have one), inserting your key and turning it over to the far RIGHT (in the process of locking the car), and once holding it there for more for a second or so, will then close all the windows for you. This opening and closing process will only continue for as long you hold the key turned over in the extreme position in either direction. Once you return the key to the center position, the opening and closing will stop. So you just hold it there until the windows are all closed. This option is not available via your keyless remote though - only via the key in the door locks.

It's something I love about the VW design - you can choose to let fresh air into the car before getting in without having to insert your key into the ignition and on the other side, if a window (or the sunroof) is accidentally left open when you've exited the car, you now have the option to close them all without once again inserting your key into ignition and turning it over.

Need to reprogram key less entry. 2002 Ford explorer sport.


Keyless Entry Keypad FAQ Ford Explorer
The keypad can be operated with the factory set 5-digit entry code
You can use the keyless entry keypad to
  • Lock or unlock the doors without using a key.
  • Open the liftgate window.
  • Activate or deactivate the autolock feature.

Where the code can be found
  • This code is located on the owner's wallet card in the glove box
  • Is available from your authorized dealer via scan code
  • Is marked on the computer module

Computer Module location
  • 1995 thru 2001 is located in the jack storage compartment in the rear of your Explorer. First remove the panel to the jack storage compartment. Towards the front of this area you should see a metal box this is your auto-lock module(way up front next to your rear left passenger seat). On the back side of this is your 5 digit code factory preset code. It is hard to get to. To see it you will have to loosen, pull, use a flashlight or a mirror but it can be done.

  • 2002 thru 2007 is in the right panel behind the middle row window. It is below the seat belt mechanism. You have to pull out the top plastic panel off, then loosen the lower panel to be able to see the face of the computer module. The code is on a sticker on the face of the module.

Programming a personal entry code The factory set code cannot be reprogrammed but you can create your own 5�digit personal entry code. When pressing the controls on the keypad, press the middle of the controls to ensure a good activation.
Up to three personal entry codes may be programmed to the vehicle. To create your own personal entry code:

  • 1. Enter the factory set code.
  • 2. Within five seconds press the 1 � 2 on the keypad.
  • 3. Enter your personal 5-digit code. Each number must be entered within five seconds of each other.
  • 4. Press 1 � 2, 3 � 4 or 5 � 6 to indicate which of the three personal entry code positions you wish to use.
  • 5. The doors will again lock then unlock to confirm that your personal key code has been programmed to the module.
Tips:

  • Do not set a code that uses five of the same number.
  • Do not use five numbers in sequential order.
  • The factory set code will work even if you have set your own personal code.
  • If you program a code to a position that already contains a set code, the previously-set code will be erased.

Erasing personal code
  • 1. Enter the factory set 5�digit code.
  • 2. Within five seconds, press the 1 � 2 on the keypad and release.
  • 3. Press and hold the 1 � 2 for two seconds. This must be done within five seconds of completing Step 2.
All personal codes are now erased and only the factory set 5�digit code will work.

Anti-scan feature If the wrong code has been entered 7 times (35 consecutive button presses), the keypad will go into an anti-scan mode. This mode disables the keypad for one minute and the keypad lamp will flash.

The anti-scan feature will turn off after
  • One minute of keypad inactivity.
  • Pressing the UNLOCK control on the remote entry transmitter.
  • The ignition is turned to the 3 (ON) position.

Unlocking and locking the doors, liftgate and liftgate window using keyless entry
  • To unlock the driver�s door, enter the factory set 5-digit code or one of the vehicle�s personal codes.

  • To unlock all doors and liftgate, press the 3 � 4 control within five seconds.
  • To open the liftgate window, press the 5 � 6 control within five seconds.
  • To lock all doors, liftgate and liftgate window, press the 7 � 8 and the 9 � 0 at the same time.

  • Note: The driver�s door must be closed. You do not need to enter the keypad code first.

Deactivating/activating autolock
  • Your vehicle comes with the autolock feature enabled.
Note: The autolock feature can be activated/deactivated independently of the autounlock feature.
Before following the activation or deactivation procedures, make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed, ignition is in the 1 (OFF/LOCK)position, and all vehicle doors, liftgate and liftgate window are closed.

Power windows, sunroof, interior lights not working. Fuse?


I just saw your posting. Yes, It could be a fuse, a 10amp interior light fuse BUT... I had to replace the Central Locking Control module which toasted first... I had the 3 open door, no working lights/windows situation too...

The problem seems to be in the main cabin light which has the 3 way rocker switch. Turn this off (depress the side on the driver side of the car (US)). Check the 10 amp fuse for the interior light. If it is burnt, you are OK if its not, you need to replace the Central Locking module. ~$200 US

I still have not replaced the cabin light module where I think a short is. If I replace the fuse in question, and turn the cabin light on, it "pulses" for a few minutes and then cooks the fuse.

Recode a key 4 bmw 318i cenral locking


To carry out this procedure you need to have one working key and one key which requires programming. It may help sometimes to hold the key close to the rear view mirror as this is where the sensor is located in most models. 1. With both keys, get in the car and close all windows and doors. 2. Put working key into the ignition and turn to position 1 (the accessories should turn on) (try also position 2) 3. Turn the key back to position 0 and take the key out of the ignition. 4. Using the working key, hold down the unlock button, press the BMW logo (lock button) 3 times, and release the unlock button. Doors should lock and unlock. 5. With the new key, hold down the unlock button and press the BMW logo (lock button) 3 times and let go of the unlock button. Doors should lock and unlock and you're done!! If not working try the following PREPARATION 1. Close all doors, trunk, hood and sunroof. 2. The security system must be in 'disarm' mode. The key must be removed from the ignition key slot. ENTER CODE LEARNING MODE 3. Open trunk and leave it opened. 4. Open the drivers door and sit in the drivers seat. 5. Close the drivers door. 6. Cycle the ignition switch 5 times between the 'OFF' position and position 2,(ignition 'ON', all dash warning lamps will illuminate). The red status LED will illuminate continuously, and the siren will 'chirp' once, to indicate that the code-learning mode has been initiated. ?Do No start the engine.? The Ignition switch cycling in step #6 must be performed within 10 seconds. The sequence in steps #1-#6 must be performed within 45 seconds. REGISTER/DELETE ID CODE(S) 7. Open drivers door, (remain seated in the drivers seat) 8. Close the drivers door. 9. Press and release any button on the remote you wish to register in the system. The status LED will shut off momentarily to indicate that one code has been registered. 10. Repeat steps 7 thru 9 to register the three ID codes. It is possible for the system to memorize a total of 4 different ID codes. As a new code is initialized into the memory, the oldest code is automatically deleted. If you had lost your remotes and wished to delete the lost remote ID codes from the memory, you could initialize the ID codes from a newly purchased replacement transmitter four times thereby deleting the previous ID codes from the system memory. EXITING CODE - LEARNING MODE: 11. Open drivers door, and exit from the vehicle, leaving the door opened. 12. Close trunk. 13. Close drivers door. The LED will turn off and the siren will 'chirp twice. 14. The initialization procedure is now completed; Test all remotes to confirm operation. If this doent work your alarm/central lock needs to be reset
