  • Sit in the car with all the doors shut and windows up with your key fobs (all your fobs need to be done at the same time)
  • With one of your keys turn the ignition on then off and remove the key
  • Press and hold the unlock botton and then press the lock button 3 times.
  • Release all buttons and the locks will bounce up and down.
  • Repeat this with the other key/keys (press and hold unlock and press lock 3 times, locks will bounce)
Note: Only switch your ignition on once, doing so again while programming will reset the process and you will have to start again.

Thanks healyc!

BMW code it for the purposes of your immobiliser/alarm etc. Programming it (as in the above) is so that it will activate central locking & total closure (windows) etc via the buttons.

I'm afraid 'autolock' is only availble via connection to BMW software. The locks will then auto-lock at about 10-20 KM/H

I thought so. I seen some manual how to set up 'autolock' without going to stealers but it didn't worked on mine baby, so if there are any other ways to do it way not to try it, I don't want to go to stealers and get pay for 5mins work but pay for full hrs as they told me :mad: 120€ !!!


ahh ifwe can't do it we can't nothing huge happened.
thanks

Sorry, missed this!

Give one of the independent garages a shout, I'm sure it can be done for far less than the BMW quote.

You need to follow the procedure exactly or you will undo the key programming!
