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.

WHY DOESNT MY DOORS DOESNT UNLOCK/LOCK USING THE REMOTE ON A 2006 BMW 3251


Hi
either the battery is u/s..or it needs reprogramming, i would do both anyway, just change battery in the key, then ( if you google how to re-program a 325i key) there is a sequence you do to program it to your car and it is relativley easy as i have done it to my 325i
hope this helps.

How do I fix my key remote on my BMW X5 2001


your key has lost its program it just means your key is on its last leg just go to the bmw dealership they can turn the key back on for you it takes about 5min or less they should not charge you---btw you do not replace key batteries for the bmw they are rechargeble thru the ignition you just have to buy another key from the dealership when it finally calls it quits...note bmw north amercia only authorizes 10 keys to be issued per vin number if a car reaches this limit you can not get a key from the dealer ever....

I cant unlock my 2001 325i bmw


Had the same problem. Dealer changed the tumbler in the key lock. Dealer has to do it because of your key. They have to order the part to. Once you open your door with locksmith dont lock it, leave it open an be careful. Cant remember the exact amount paid, 450-500 for this job at the dealer, lock works pretty good, at times doesnt unlock the other doors, but its under 2 year warranty.

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

2003 bmw 325i keys does not unlock and the door wont open how do i find a central locking system if im completely locked out?


insert the key into the drivers side or passender side front door, twist the key and pull open on the handle at the same time and the door will open. It might take a few times to get it, but this does work, source BMW AG Munich.
