Im sure you already fixed your problem but replacing the batt is very easy patiently use a razor blade and cut around the seam of the key eventually the key will open up do not pry then slowly remove the batt radioshack and a few online sites sell the correct batt i actually got the one size bigger batt it still fits and has a longer life pretty simple and cost about $5

After my 330i 2002 alarm went off, the central locking also don't work anymore. I had to force window open to get into the car. The key just work on drivers side door. Any suggestions?


Check the fuse. If fuses are good, check the battery in the remote. If that is good, try unhooking the negative battery cable for 10 seconds and reconnecting it.

2000 cadillac deville driver side won't open with the key


1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open.
2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock

Wireless Key Remote door & trunk opener won't work with trunk anymore


When you press the trunk open button, do you hear any "release" noise come from the trunk area? The issue may be a bad battery in the key fob OR there could be an issue with the transmitter located inside the vehicle. Do the doors lock and unlock properly? is the vehicle equipped with security or immobilizer? please advise

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.

When you replace the battery on the BMW key fobs they need to be reprogrammed. The dealership can furbish you with the right procedure, since it is dependent on the VIN# and not the year. On a latter note, ask for parts they should be able to give you the right thing.

I have a bmw 330i and the doors will not lock using key, i have replaced the key but it didnt solve the problem... what needs to be replaced?


if the door locks work manually with using the key in the door then probably will need to just reprogram/initialize the key especially if its a new key. if the power door locks dont work at all using the key manually then first check the fuse.

initializing key:
all these steps must be completed within 15 sec. of cycling the key i.e. turning the key off
step 1: get in vehicle close all doors and trunk
step 2: turn ignition on tell all dash lights are on but engine is not started
step 3: turn ignition off pull key out
step 4: press and hold the unlock botton down while then at the same time press the lock button three times in a row
step 5: door locks should initializ at this point they will lock and unlock on there own to show process is completed

Boot will not unlock with the remote button from key fob


Yes, this is what makes the Germans so cool!

Step one, replace battery in key foob. If that doesnt work proceed to next step.

Your BMW has a central locking system overide solution.

insert your main key into the driver door. before turning the key lift the door handle as if your opening the door, then turn the key all the way clockwise....it should go further than it ever has....it should make all the door latches POP! If this doesnt work, Try it while turning the key counterclockwise.

If this doesnt work, make sure you have your radio code and take off the negative battery cable overnight on your car. Then attach it after 12 hours and repeat above steps.

This should work, this is what they will do at the dealer and charge you about $700 :-)
