    Hey, So this might be a dumb thing to ask, but theoretically would it be possible to retrofit the newish touchscreen display key to work with an e46? Let's say money's out of the picture and the actual E46 diamond key that has no longer functional electronics is on a key chain w my house...

    Hey everyone just wandering what the best option for a replacement key would be after mine refuses to start the car. Preferably don't want to fork out a ton of money for a bmw one so if anyone has any recommendations it would be greatly appreciated.

    Long story short I programmed my new key with ak90 and its alright, key starts the car, but the thing is I don't know how to program it to unlock and lock the car. My old key ONLY starts the car too. I tried the method where you turn the key the first position 5 times then take it out and while...

    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.

    Since I've owned my 2004 330i, I haven't been able to get the trunk to open with the key's remote trunk release. The dash-mounted trunk release will open the trunk. The trunk-mounted trunk release will open the trunk. The trunk's keyhole will lock-out if turned horizontally. It will permit...

    Hello Fanatics, My 2003 330i is approaching 250k miles, in large part thanks to the knowledge shared here. I just rebuilt my lock cylinder (2nd time since I've owned the car) because the little cast piece inside broke. Put the cylinder back in the door, and found I couldn't turn the key to...

    I know I know there's a million forum threads on this already, I'm breaking the rules. Sue me. Replaced the battery on my diamond key. It was a royal pain in the ass and now the key looks like trash, but that's neither here nor there. Went to go reprogram the key and it still doesn't work...

    Hey All: So new week, new problem :p My set of keys to my e46 died (or so I think) usually I put the key into the ignition and the car doesn't start whatsoever. So most of the time I sit in my car turning the key on and off for anywhere from 3 turns to 5-10min. The car always eventually...

    Hi! I have a trisky problem with my bmw 316 e46. Often when I unlock the car, I press the button on the key, then the lights go on, but the doors do not lock up. So when I press the button inside the car, nothing happens. But from the key I can both lock the car and open the boot, but I can not...

    I know that there are a lot of threads about this but none quite like mine. So on my 01 325xi my door was not locking by turning the key. I replaced the key lock the first time and it broke into pieces after being used for 6 months. I recently ordered a new lock and master key from bmw ( oem...
