BMW 7 SERIES 3D KEY ISSUE

BMW 7 SERIES 3D KEY ISSUE

Postby altyron » 24 Apr 2017, 13:34

Hi, I have a 12 year old BMW 7 series which runs fine. However, the 'remote' 4 button keys are playing up. One key will open the doors and boot no problem. Buy it won't lock the car!

The second key does nothing electronically - when I use the manual part it opens the car ok, but the alarm goes off as soon as I open the door. Once the key is inserted in the ignition and started, the alarm ceases.

Secondly, my satnav syatem is also playing up and I don't know if the key problem is connected. The display shows and plays music ok, and the hands free phone function is also ok. But there are no maps and the satnav bit just displays "initialising please wait". Linked to this, the DVD /CD in the iDrive in the boot won't eject.

Any suggestions and fixes appreciated. All of the above happened quite suddenly 2 weeks ago.

Many thanks, Ronnie

First thought is batteries!! Both (or either) the actual car battery and/or the fobs. Do you know the history/newness of them?
