BMW Key Programming – BMW Keys Replaced – Lost Car Keys – Ignition Repairing


How Do BMW Keys Work?

BMW has been using remote key fobs since the BMW 7 series (E65) was released in 2001. The key fob was a plastic key with electronics that operated the central locking system as well as the ignition. It allowed traditional keys to be replaced with a far more secure and sophisticated remote key. Many modern models of BMW now don’t even require the insertion of a key fob into an insertion slot. Access to the car is conditional on you carrying the fob within the vehicle.

This convenient and impressive technology function uses unique codes that are linked to your individual car. A professionally equipped auto-locksmith is able to access this information and program new transponder keys to respond directly to your car. Once a BMW key is programmed, it cannot be re-programmed or unprogrammed, offering increased security.

Do I need to visit a licensed BMW key programmer?

Can BMW Keys be Reprogrammed?

BMW keys that have previously been programmed to a specific car cannot be re-programmed to work for another car. When replacing an existing key, a brand new one must be programmed as its replacement. This ensures a higher level of security as the key is equipped with only your unique car’s encryption.
