Question about BMW 330xi
Need help with 2003 330XI keyless entry. wont open or close. I have tried many different suggestion to reprogram but nothing seems to work. i did notice when it was working, that at one point as a test I walked around the car until it locked the doors. The distance got shorter and shorterPlease help
There are two types of BMW key fobs...some have batteries and some have a rechargeable battery that is not removable (it charges via induction when the car is being driven with the key in the ignition).
My 2003 Z4 is the latter (no replaceable battery). If you are lucky your 330 is not that type.
And I do not think BMW dealers service the induction type key fobs ... you have to buy new keys

Hi Guillermo. Do the doors lock and unlock when you are sitting in the car with the doors closed? If none of the doors lock and unlock using the central lock button in the center console, you need to start with having the central lock system diagnosed. Some of the common issues are the door lock actuators, trunk lock actuator, and central lock button.

The transponder is not effective any longer sometimes the battery of the remote is very low which needs to be replaced

SOURCE: keyless entry won't work
I have a 1999 BMW E46 I have had a problem with the keyless entry myself. I brought the car to BMW Dealer and they told me that my Lock had an issue and that they need to repair some wiring wich would cost me $1,023.98 to find out that it was a fuse that burned out. I have replaced the 5 amp fuse with another one but it burned the fuse again so I put a 10 amp fuse and i have not had a problems since. In my car is fuse # 54 if Im not mistaken. But waht you can do is open the fuse box which is located in your glove compartment look for a diagram that shows you which fuse is where it will give you a fuse name a number where the fuse is located and how many amps fuse it is.
