SOURCE: Initializing a BMW key

no you shouldnt need to, as the aerial antenna for the EWS system simply clips off the front of the barrell when replacing.

well in saying that if you have a new key to match the barrell then thats a major, you will need to see a dealer to reprogram the whole computer system if possible & depending on the system your car is running.

E32 V12 BMW LOCKED IN 3RD GEAR AND REV TACHO DOES NOT WORK TRIED CLEARING CODES DISSCONNECTINDG BATTERIE STILL MADE NO DIFFERENCE


Really a nice car. If this is an automatic, some Manufactuers use Electric solenoids to switch gears. A bad connector underneath the car could be blocking the signal.

For a stickshift, some use a slave cylinder to aid the clutch operation. If the slave cylinder is electric, it too could stop you from shifting into another gear.

You can try alldatadiy.com for wiring details. Autozone.com also has free wiring details when you register your vehicle with them. I am untrained for BMW products. Your best chance is to find where the Tach feed is attached to get its readings.

The Powertrain Control Module may tie both functions together. Also worthy of comment is your Security system and Ignition key. Perhaps the Antitheft is keeping the trans locked in a single gear.

I hope my solution helps you.
