How to Program a BMW Key Fob

bmw key replacement

If you live near Turnersville and need to know how to program a BMW key fob, you might be tempted to call BMW of Turnersville for help. However, it’s easy to program a BMW key fob yourself. Check out this guide on how to program a BMW key fob, and if you still have questions, or need to order a BMW key fob replacement call BMW of Turnersville.

Program a BMW Key from Scratch

If you don’t currently have a working key fob, follow these instructions:

  1. Push the key into your BMW vehicle’s ignition switch, but don’t start the engine. Only turn on the electronic systems. Then, turn the key back and forth, from position one to off, quickly five times in a row.
  2. Remove the key and hold the unlock button down. Press the lock button (BMW logo) three times, then let go of the unlock button.
  3. You can also program additional key fobs at this point by repeating the steps above within 30 seconds of the initial key fob programming step.
  4. Turn on the car’s ignition to complete the programming process before heading out on Philadelphia roads.

There you go! Becoming a BMW key programmer is really quite simple. If you have trouble making use of the feature after you’re finished with programming, your BMW key battery may be to blame.

Program a New BMW Key with Your Original Fob

Sewell drivers that already have a working BMW key fob can create additional keys for other drivers using the following method:

  1. Enter your BMW vehicle with the working key fob and the additional fobs that you wish to program. Then, close all your car doors and windows.
  2. Insert the original working key into the vehicle’s ignition and turn it to position one. Position one is when the car’s dash lights and accessories light up, but the engine doesn’t engage.
  3. Turn the key back to the off position and remove it.
  4. Using the original key fob, hold down the unlock button and press the lock button (the BMW logo) three times. Then, release the unlock button. Your car doors should automatically lock and unlock at this point.
  5. Grab a new key fob and hold down the unlock button while pressing the BMW logo three times like before, then release the unlock button again. 
  6. Repeat the steps for all your additional BMW key fobs.
