    Hey Folks, Wondering if someone could direct me to a guide for coding in the diamond shaped key fob that has worked properly for them. There seems to be a few online but it doesn't look as though they work for everyone. Is there anything I need to be aware of depending year/model variant? Or...

    Hi Think this is my first question on here. Just picked up nice E53 3.0 d for my partner as a run around. The question I have is if I get a used Diamond Bmw key. Can I reprogramme it purely to operate the central locking alone ? I know the transponder will be different but I want a separate...

    I had a few issues with my diamond key a while back. It started having problems with the lock / unlock functions. The distance it unlocked the car from got shorter and shorter until it no longer worked. Then after about 1 month the key no longer started the car. It put the lights on the dash, it...

    Hi, I have the diamond keyfob on my 2002 compact, which I only bought about a month ago. Works sporadically, thought about buying a new battery, but found something on "You Tube". If you have an electric tooth brush, just lay your key on top of the (plugged in) charger over night. Works first...

    My original diamond key doesn't operate properly. Initially I thought the battery needed replaced - which I replaced and confirmed was working - but after having done that, the key still didn't perform. It did very randomly work but so random that I stopped attempting to use it and just use the...

    I have an 04/12 build BMW 320d M Sport Special Edition. I recently scuffed one of the alloy wheels so requested a specialist to repair this. He observed that the wheels were originally diamond cut but had been sanded back to the bare metal, and then lacquered. He also observed that if a wheel...
