  1. Tearing my Hair out

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Picked up a lovely 316 Ti E46 2004 for a song and have gradually been working on it to bring it back to where it should be. Remote keys don't work and I presume its the coils inside but thought I'd just check the central locking fuses first (if it was going to be a simple fix then woop-de-doo)...

    BMW 2 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW F22
    218d Active Tourer Luxury My spare remote does not function as it should. The battery is fine but it won't open the car any more. When I put it next to the steering column at the marked place, I can start the car. I'm guessing it's because it's the spare and is hardly ever used. Has anyone...
