    Got a new Key - Remote lock/unlock still doesnít work

    I just got a new key from the BMW dealership. Unfortunately, remote lock/unlock still isnít working.

    It works intermittently with my orifginal key, so Iím not sure if itís the key or the car. I assumed my other key was simply running out of battery. The new key does unlock the door/start the car no problem. Is there some procedure I need to follow to map this new key to the car?

    You need to program the new key to your car. My Indy ordered one for me some years ago. I believe they did something like this:

    Much appreciated, I knew there was something. I’ll give it a shot and report back!

    I was just able to try it, it did not work for me. I suspect the antenna system might be broken. I had tapped in to a couple wires in there to hardwire a radar detector, and I think that might be giving me issues. shit.

    Fried_Chicken, I found other instructions, you may want to double check. See the 3rd pic in this link.
