How Do I Program My BMW Key Fob?

Man Holding Key Fob

Ballwin-area drivers can rest easy knowing that programming the keyless entry on their new BMW key fob is a simple procedure, and it’s one that many drivers won’t struggle to complete. There are two basic methods; one to use when you already have a working key but want to program additional keys, and the other is when you are starting from scratch without a working key.

Programming Additional BMW Key Fobs

If you have a working key fob and want to program additional keys, follow these simple steps:

  1. Take the working key fob along with the ones you want to program inside the car with all doors and windows closed.
  2. Put the working key into the ignition and turn to position one. At this point, the dash lights and accessories should turn on.
  3. Turn the key back and remove.
  4. On the working key, hold down the unlock button and press the lock button (the BMW logo) three times, then release the unlock button. The doors will then automatically lock and unlock.
  5. Take the new key and hold down the unlock button while pressing the BMW logo 3 times, then release the unlock button. Again the doors should lock and unlock, and you’re done.

Programming a New BMW Key Fob

Below are the instructions for programming a new key when you do not have a working key fob.

  1. Insert key into the ignition and turn it to position one and back rapidly five times.
  2. Remove the key.
  3. Hold the unlock button and press the BMW logo three times, then release the unlock button.
  4. If you have additional keys you’d like to program at this time, repeat step three within 30 seconds from the original key programming.
  5. Turn on the ignition to complete the process.
