SOURCE: 2001 BMW 325i - Key no longer unlocking doors.

if you have a bmw 325i 2001 model try this solution:
if you have one key , go on to the next step. if you have more than one key, like two or more than follow this procedure.

step one: unlock the doors with your key and get in and close the doors but do not lock them
step two: put your key into the ignition and turn it but not to start the engine, do this less than 5 seconds

step three: take the key out of the ignition and put it near the shifter. press and hold the unlock button while pressing the lock button 3 times. you have 30 seconds to do this. the doors should lock and unlock automatically signalling that it the key has been reprogrammed. if you have more than one key follow those steps for each one except for step one. remmember you have only 30 seconds for each key. that should help you.

SOURCE: Battery is dead. Doors are locked. Can't get into car.

I m a locksmith and had the same problem

What you do is:

HOld The handle up while you turn the key to the opening direction, it will feel as though it may bend the key but it will not.

keep pulling the handle until the button pops up it works I did it

SOURCE: check engine light comes on but car runs great 2002 bmw 325i and

The check engine light could be any number of things and the only way to find out is have the codes scanned. The brake light issue is common on E46 3 series. It is an issue were the brown ground wire that goes into the lamp housing melts at the connector causing a loose ground connection. The connector needs to be replaced and also add additional grounding wires to prevent further issues. And for fuel additives either use the cheveron techron, or the bmw fuel additive(the bmw stuff is the exact same thing, so just use which ever is cheaper).

SOURCE: BMW 325I Radio knob on/off not operating. Still

if the problem is with the knob being lose inside the radio, it can be repaired. I have been able to successfully repair every one that came into my dealership. most dealers will not attempt a repair. another alternative is to call a reputable audio installer/retailer and see if they will repair it.

SOURCE: 2002 BMW 325 - key locked in trunk

There are several suggestions out there on how to retrieve BMW keys from the trunk. Many of the ways I tried failed, and it takes 2 to 3 days to get a new key made up. In the coupe there is the center piece in the back seat that folds down. Then on the back wall there is material that will fold down that is held up with Velcro. Behind that you will find a rubber insulation that is mostly cut and looks like a door, but not all the way. Carefully cut the rubber to remove the piece. Now you will find a metal wall, but there is a large piece that is tack welded on. I got turned around and kicked it with the bottom of my foot and got 3 sides loose. Then a softball bat knocked the final side loose. Pull that out and trash it, the final barrier is the insulation that is held in place with plastic clips that can just be pushed down. After that you can a pretty large hole to work through and get the keys. Just put everything back in place other than the metal plate and you will never know anything was done.

2. hold the arm button (the big one in the center)
3. Press the unlock button three (3) times
4. release the arm button
5. turn key to on position and off within 5 sec.

Central locking in my bmw 320 diesel isnt working it wont open the doors but it will start the engine , the spare key is the same so its not the battery of the keys


Providing central locking works when you insert key in lock,try programming keys
Enter car make sure all doors/windows are shut
Switch ignition on and off,remove key
PRESS AND HOLD UNLOCK BUTTON ON KEY
Press lock button on key 3 times whithin 10 seconds and release unlock
Central locking will lock/unlock rapidly to confirm reset
If your key is the type with bmw logo in the middle battery replacement is not possible,as it charges as you drive

My key does not open or lock my doors remotely had key checked and is sending a signal but still not working


You do not say what year your car is, here is standard programming for most bmw,s,after battery or key replacement or malfunction.
Unlock car,enter, make sure all doors boot etc are closed.
Switch ignition on and off,remove key.
PRESS AND HOLD unlock button.
Press lock button 3 times in 10 seconds
Release unlock button
Some models led flashes in key for 10 seconds
Later keys central locking will lock unlock rapidly to confirm reset.
Later keys without led has no battery replacement,as it charges as you drive.So if you have this type charge before reprogramming

2006 bmw 325i remote only unlocks driverside door. will not unlock all doors when you lock it from the inside. have to use key in remote to open door. also central button to unlock doors is inop


fuse 56 and 57 control central locking,the issue is caused by surges typically in the front door lock actuators, normally at a dealer they would replace fuse 56 and 57 with a 20a mini fuse and if still occuring repl the door lock(s) that dont work or typically both front, first replace fuse 56 and 57 with 20a fuses as were too small from factory and than operate ten to 15 times, if it doesnt work at first dont panic,let the car go to sleep which takes about 16 min and than try again this problem has nothing to do with the key fob or the lock unlock button inside,also the fuses are located behind the glove box just rere the access panel and they are found at lower left section

My car remote control doesnt work . i changed my key batary .i need get new code but i cant .. my car 1994 model BMW 530 i .. best regart .


Hi , you can initialise the key yourself. Ensure you get into the car and close all doors, Insert the ignition key and turn on the ignition lights , do not start the engine, while the key is still in the ignition press and hold the lock button and remove the key from the ignition , while still holding down the lock button press the unlock button 3 times and release the lock button, the central locking should now lock and unlock, to initiate other keys just hold the lock button and press the unlock 3 times , you do not have to insert the other key into the ignition , you may need to practise this a few times , hope this helps, regards mark .
