      followed the instructions and it worked but then stopped working and the alarm goes off on every entry to the car and the console red light is flashing. I have tried to reset but with no avail. any ideas?

        Hi -sorry to hear you had a problem. Can you clarify at what stage it stopped working? Immediately or after a number of operations? Alos were you programming new or old fobs?

        Glad it helped - they can be a right pain. Think I've messed my new one up. Stopped for a toilet break on way back from Plymouth and put my keys on a shelf not noticing it was swimming in water - Doh! transmit light was permanently on until battery went flat! So spending a penny cost me a packet. aaargh

      Excellent guide , so good that I've joined the website instead of being a nosey guest and that I could post a review , worked to the letter , just need a bit of physio now for the back ! I found a company called scheidmann that stocked the fob as bmw said that they no longer stocked them , so a big thank you to the author whose obviously put a lot of time and effort into this to help others out

        Welcome to the forum. Glad it worked for you - some people have had problems recently but they have had different issues. If you can post the link to scheidmann on the forum that may be a help to others. jonco
