    2001/2002 E46 Compact I used to have a problem where, after a power wash, my key fob wouldn't work for a while, no lock/unlock, no trunk release (presumably until water evaporated from somewhere), only the manual key hole would work or the central locking button inside, and when this happened in...

    Greetings everyone! I am new to the E46 community! I recently purchased an 2002 E46 M3 Coupe and it had an already existing problem with the Key fob and Passenger side door lock. My deduction is that the key fob's battery is fully out, AND the passenger side door "lock actuator" is also out. In...

    So as recommended and because it looked like the Problem, I replaced the two relays in the GM5 Module. However the Problem of not being able to lock/unlock the car with the key half the time, and the Problem of the key not wanting to program to the car still persists. The locking system DOES...

    I have tried every possible way that I can find to program the key fob but none of them work. I don't want to buy a new key and I have run out of ideas to solve this issue. The only thing I can think of is that the key is broken or the battery is faulty/discharged. I have been driving the car...

    I purchased my 328Ci last night and he said the kefob was dead. When I got it home, I split open the keyfob and noticed the battery is missing. I did some research for like 30 minutes trying to find something but all I've found was about the solder type batteries. Does anyone know what battery...

    I know this has been posted to death but I haven't been able to get this problem fixed. Here is what is happening: when the key is out of the ignition and the door is ajar, the car chimes and the tail lights stay on (the ones on the trunk). None of the key fob buttons work either and it cannot...

    Hello everyone, I have a 2001 BMW 330i and the fob i have for it has not been working. When i got the car a few months ago, everything on it was fine, the center console lock button worked, all buttons on the fob worked, and the key lock on the driver door worked. My brother in law asked to see...

    Hey everyone, So there are a lot of tutorials and things out there that show people how to change their batteries in the key fobs which I did. I know the battery was good because I measured the voltage required. After this, I attempted various methods of synchronizing the keys with the car...

    Hello good people, I lost one key and would like to fix the replacement. Any tips on where to buy OEM one? I saw somebody selling a single used key on ebay - isn't the key "cut" unique? Could one possibly buy a used key and reprogram it? I looked up the part number; 01104444444, it's discontinued.

    Hi all, I am getting keys cut to then program my EWS and have some more keys. Well, the guy who cuts my keys has a problem. He cut it, and it can turn the ignition, but at the same time the key doesn't go all the way into the door and thus the door lock can't be turned. How is that possible...

    Hello, so couple of days ago i dropped my only diamond key fob :banghead: and the case came apart, battery went missing, luckily the original chip was somehow still in the case. did not notice the missing battery until next morning. Superglue is not helping to keep the case in one piece. I have...

    Hello, I recently bought a pretty beat up 325ci and it came with an aftermarket key with no buttons. After ordering a key fob from the dealership, I am still unable to program the key to lock/unlock wirelessly, or start the car. My thoughts are that they are two different issues. One, being...
