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.

Regards

Dan

Locked keys in 1999 lincoln town car executive and no keyless entry. can I gain entrance without an expensive locksmith?


Hello Jennifer Jackson...

No... even LINCOLN windows are harder to break
(sorry... your LINCOLN is pretty secure).

Worse... the best price I've paid to get a double sided
PATS (passive anti-theft system) key cut = $6.

Bring your own key... But this was all about the price of PREVENTING your current situation... (oops).

If your ONLY key is truly "inside"...
Your goose is pretty much cooked... The cost of
the LOCKSMITH is pretty trivial compared to your
alternatives... Dealers will zing you MUCH BETTER
than your "expensive locksmith"...

But what ever you do... (my recommendation)... Since
you prefer not to be prepared... (no door code or FOB)
Don't pass on the opportunity to have that same SMITHY
at least tell you about your door code POSSIBILITIES
or at least program a remote FOB for you ...

A RESPONSIBLE "expensive locksmith" will
explain the WISDOM of NEVER having less than 2 (TWO) transponder keys. (by reading your owners manual you can program the FOBs yourself (FREE).

How do you manage the "no" keyless entry...?
I remain pretty sure the number pad... & KEY FOB
(wireless transmitter) were standard equipment...

2 SPARE keys minimum... ALWAYS.

Keyless entry lock and panic button work. However when pressing the unlock button the locks do not move but the panic button comes on.


the car came with 2 fobs
are both bad, why not try the other fob. never run any car with 1 fob
always have a good spare, or it can get very costly fast.

did you replace the battery in the fob yet, (yes do both , they are both at end of life, for sure) and are dirt cheap, compared to $100 shop labor rates + , why not use an ASE independent shop,,,?
.
you bought a key, so ... shoe drops.

Keyless remote wont work


Many times if you purchase a used vehicle, the car lot only provides the key because they do not want to spend the money to purchase a key fob. A 2006 Lancer either has a 2 or 3 button keyless entry remote which you can find here: http://replacemyremote.com/

Dealer gave me a shaved key works on starting ignition not on door lock the other three keys work on everything car doesn't have engine immoboliser removed the remote keyless entry fobs what is


Many times the dealer gives you a valet key made to give to the vet to park your car, these keys work even though the theft deterant system is active, but they will only work for short periods untill the theft system activates and imobolizes the vehicle. The system is reset when the valet brings your vehicle and you insert your normal (chiped) key.

Is the igntion key code and the keyless remote code the same if so where can i find it looked under trunk


You do not say what kind of vehicle and why the dealer could not issue a new key using the VIN. I know of no manufacturer that writes down the codes anywhere in the vehicle. The keyless entry is controlled by it's own module and is verified by the main computer. The ignition key carries the code on it, and is verified by the ignition module. A good locksmith shop should be able to make keys for you.

My 2000 Lincoln LS keyless remote doesn't work, so I replaced the $15.89 battery and still nothing from what Ive read on this site keyless entry keypad remote code should be in the manual but...


You have to go to a lincoln dealer with your title
& Vin #,they will give you the factory code for the
Keyless Entry on the drivers door

Make sure you have them write down to proceedure
that was in the owners manual ,so you can change it
to what you want.

I have a 2004 LS I don't know if it is the same.
Have no way to scan it & send it to you
