    Hi people,

    Basically I have a 320 D SE on a 56 plate, I am currently using the only remaining key which is the fob with the plastic key that pulls out of it.

    I open the doors manually using the plastic key which sets off the alarm and runs untill I put the plastic key back into the fob and start the engine.


    It's allows me to drive the car but all in all is a bit of a headache, I have an original BMW key which originated from a 1 series and was wondering whether I could use the spare key to make the original key fully functional (start engine, central locking, windows etc) ??


    Is this possible?


    And if not, what are my options?


    Hope I have made everything clear, and thanks for the assistance!

    Unfortunately, you will have to buy the key from your dealer and the transponder in the 1 series key is not programmable without specialist equipment. Can I ask what happened to the other keys?

    Lets hope it isnt as bad as the bmw mini keys. They are an absolute nightmare. You have to backtrack through any previous keys to delete their coding so you can replace with a new one, then theres the 50 digit number with cross outs and deletions to set it up.

    Would have to say though, only having a plastic key to access the car would be far too scary. Especially in winter when the locks start freesing. (Thank you for the central locking invention, saved me many an issue in winter).

    Will not beable to use 1series key there matched to original EWS unit on each car from factory (chassis number) or when ordered from BMW. 1 series key may as well throw away if you not got the 1series.
