If you have a new key because your BMW key was broken or lost then you may need to reprogram it. This guide will take you through the process or programming your key to match your BMW car. If you follow the straightforward steps then your BMW key will be ready to use in a few minutes!
There are three way the key reprogramming can be done:
From with in your BMW Car
Works if your are inside your BMW with the car doors closed.
Rotate the ignition key to the 1st position then back to “off” in less than 5 seconds.
Take the key out of the ignition and then press the “unlock” button for 15 seconds. Whilst you are doing this push the “Key Lock” button 3 times in 5 seconds.
Take your fingers off both buttons.
All the doors will lock and then unlock. This means your new BMW key fob is correctly programmed.
With one programmed BMW car key, and one that isn’t programmed
Get inside your car and close the doors.
Use the working key to turn on the ignition, then turn off immediately. This should take no longer than 5 seconds. The next step must occur within 30 seconds.
Remove the working key.
Raise the key up to your left ear, it’s nearer the receiver then.
You must then push down the “unlock button” and push down the “lock button” 3 times. Take your finger off the “unlock button” and then the doors will lock to confirm the process has worked.
At once take the second key and hold it up to your left ear. You must then push down the “unlock button” and push down the “lock button” 3 times. Take your finger off the “unlock button” and then the doors will lock to confirm the process has worked.
If the process is unsuccessful, then do the keys in the opposite order.
Without a working programmed BMW key
Rotate the key to position 1 five times very quickly then remove the key. Press down the “unlock button” and then push the “lock button” 3 times, let go of the unlock button.
If there is a second key then repeat the process within 30 seconds. Switch on the ignition to finish the procedure.
