I just took delivery of my 2004 325i and forgot to ask the dealership to program the key so the car would make a sound and would flash turn signals when I arm/disarm the alarm. I want to know if anyone knows before I pick up the phone. We all know how disinterested they become once you sign the papers. Please email any responses to pangeaaffair@aol.com. Thanks.

they have to hook to it with DIS machine or GT1 to change car/key settings.

mechy1barry;
could you post your responce to 'thesamba'. I'm watching with great interest as 'Initializing' the keypads is done independent of the service testers,
I know of no way to 'Reprogram/Personalize' the vehicle system W/O a MoDiC/GT-1 or the Sales Dept. unit Dealers may have........thanks............jb.

the lights flashing with key button press is set in car/key memory with the DIS machine or GT1. Programming the key remote function is done without having to go to the dealer.

this programme is for rebooting the key fob for the opperation of central locking and alarm on a majority of the marque, in most cases does not include the immobiliser.if anyone requires further info ,email please with full info on car.

I just purchased a 1997 540i for a private owner and the battery in the Key they had went bad and when the replaced it the programming must have been lost (sorry, I'm new to BMW's and the forum, so this may be a dumb question). I would like to reprogram the functions of the Key for the doors and what not as well as the special features for security as well by myslef if possible but maybe its not, I just don't want to pay the dealer $55 for 2 minutes of there time. Any and all help is appreciated.

Kind regards, Lynn Beardall lbeardal@iveracity.com

To be honest, I don't know if you can do this yourself, maybe it would just be best to pay the dealer and then at least you know that it's done properly. That's what I would have done.

I totally agree with you. I've seen the dealer done it - just a few clicks for $60.00!, to me, don't ask for repeat service!
I'm in the same boat - need to program my key too!

can someone email me how to program the key to an '04 BMW 325i. The car doesnt beep, the panic alarm doesnt go off if I hold the trunk button for even 20 seconds. The lights dont flash. I went to classic BMW the guy just told me that my car doesnt come with those options. My car has the premium package...thats really surprising if it doesnt have those options!

Hi. I just bought a 2001 BMW 325xi. It doesn't have the alarm installed yet but I would
Still like to know if the doors are locked. My key will lock/unlock the car and the trunk. It will even
Open all the windows and the sun roof but the lights don't flash when I lock the door.

I'm going to purchase the alarm and install it myself but everyone is telling me I'll have
to pay the stealer to program it because my light don't flash.

Is there a way I can program my car to flash without going to the stealer.

Hi,

We have a 2007 335i that we bought on ebay motors. Our last 2007 335i was a lease and the salesperson helped us program all of the settings to work for my FOB and my husbands FOB Now we want the same set up as we had before but don't know how to do it and the dealership wants to charge $60 for each key FOB personalization!

I'd really appreciate any advice on how to personalize our new FOBs to our new car green.kimber@gmail.com

Thanks!

Ok, this probably has nothing to do with this post but since your talking about security I wanted to ask anyways......

I have a 1995 318is, my key has one button on it that does nothing but turn on a small amber light on the key itself. There is no door lock/unlock switches inside the car and if I want to lock either door or trunk, I have to do each one manually with the key. My question is, how can I determine if my car came with any type of security and if the doors are suppose to lock/unlock with just one door being locked/unlocked? Thank you.

Dear fellow members,
I have a BMW 335i 2009. I was wondering if it is possible to program the key for keyless entry without buying this option at the dealership?

Mechy1barry,
You seemed to know a lot about this. I would appreciate if you can reply to me at Andrey_eg@yahoo.com

Thank you in advance.
