How to reset BMW Keyless Entry

If your key can turn your car on and off but the buttons to unlock, lock and unlock the trunk do not work, follow all the steps in the video and your key will work 100%! I only have one (1) Key fob so it worked for me perfectly. If you have more than one key, I'm not sure if it will mess up the coding for the other key. Consult with your BMW Dealer for more info. STEPS: 1) Stand near your vehicle & lock it with the KEY not the remote. Wait five seconds. 2) Unlock your driver side door and get while completly shutting the door. 3) Turn the ignition to the ON position but DO NOT start the engine. Wait 2-3 Seconds. 4) Turn OFF the ignition and place the key near the gear shift. 5) Press and hold the unlock button and while doing so, press the lock button 3 times. 6) Wait 1 second and release the unlock button. The driver side door will unlock, then all the doors will unlock automatically and the interior lights will turn on. The reset has been complete! To be sure, after the reset make sure all of the buttons work! **IMPORTANT** --As soon as the reset has been done, turn on the car and leave it on for about 15minutes. This is to charge the remote with the car-- GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE!
