☛ This procedure is for the remote keyless entry only and has nothing to do with the ability to start the engine.
1. You must initiate the central locking system first: Insert key into driver’s door lock and open central locking system using the car key.
2. Get into the car, close all doors and insert the key into the Ignition Switch.
3. Using the car key, switch the ignition lock briefly to ignition lock position 1 and switch OFF again. The switching time must remain under 5 seconds, otherwise the system will not ready for initialization.
*You must turn switch position 1 (not position 2).
4. Remove the key from ignition switch, press button #1 (BMW logo) and hold in. Still pressing button #1 - press button #2 three times.
5. Relase button #1.
The central locking system should activates and relases all lock mechanisms in rapid succession to indicate that initialization procedure has been successfully completed.
If the ZV (Central Locking) does not send a return signal, initialization bust be restarted. Once the first initialization process has been completed, another three radio transmitters can be initialized. For every radio transmitter, the procedure described under 4 above must be repeated within 30 seconds, otherwise initialization stand-by is switched off. During initialization, all other existing radio transmitters must be initialized. The ignition lock must never be reactivated during the initialization process. If this were to hapen, then all radio transmitters would have to be re-initialized.
☛ If you have any additional remote keys - you start their programming on STEP 4. Do not insert any additional remote key into the ignition switch (if you do, the 1st key will lose it's programming)
