YOUR TIMING IS CONTROLLED BY DIGITAL MOTOR ELECTRONICS CONTROL UNIT.THERE IS NO TIMING SETTING FOR THE M62B44 ENGINE.IF YOU ARE HAVING IGNITION TIMING PROBLEMS TAKE VECHICLE TO BMW DEALERSHIP THEY WILL HAVE TO USE DIAGNOSTIC SCANNER TO CHECK THE DIGITAL MOTOR ELECTRONICS SYSTEM SINCE YOU HAVE SENSORS THAT CONTROL IGNITION TIMING.

Have had this problem. Solve it by reading the owner's handbook, which gives clear instructions. Do not use the key in the tailgate door before reading the instructions.

I cannot open the doors on my BMW using the remote control or the internal button. I can only open the driver's door using the manual key. The remote control locks the door fine and triggers the alarm....


This is a common fault on the series 3 usually down to the General Module 5 or GMV relays breaking down. Item is situated behind glove box reasonably easy to replace. Cost from BMW about £240.00 Can be found through breakers about £60.00. Keys will have to be recoded. See www.bmwgm5.com for more info.

BMW remote control problem


I have a e60 525i that I just brought and it has the same problem, the owners manual suggests driving with the key in the ignition for a long time as the batteries are rechargable and may have gone flat, i have tried this and it doesnt seem to work

i also read something about getting water in the aerial about the rear window and that wrecks the receiever. My car isn;t under warranty so not looking forwarding to taking it to bmw
