Hi I have been looking into getting a remote central locking system and after advice on here went with this oneh
It has been dispatched but now I am worried about the fitting of it as in the instructions it states the following
To disable the factory immobiliser a replacement ring antenna/transponder reader from BMW is required and a spare ignition key. The part number for the ring antenna is 61 36 8 364 710 or 71 36 8 364 709.
2 methods are available:
Bypass immobiliser at all times, secure a spare key to the new ring antenna making sure the key is as central as possible in the ring. Unplug the existing antenna and plug new one in it's place and hide under dash, you may also want to cut the key shaft so of found by a theif it can not be used.
Bypass immobiliser only through remote start:
Wire the new antenna through a SPCO relay and secure a spare key to it making sure the key is as central as possible in the ring. Hide the new antenna under the dash and at least 18 inches away from the original antenna to prevent them clashing. you may also want to cut the key shaft so of found by a thief it can not be used.
What I would like to know is has anyone fitted one of these systems? If not does this make sense and will I have to order a new ring antenna or can I get one from the scrap yard? I already have a spare key that I can use.
All help needed as this is coming soon. Cheers
