Frequently Asked Questions
A simple way to determine the BMW replacement key you need is based on the model year of your BMW.
2005 and older – this generation of BMW used a traditional key and blade-style key, also known as a BMW Diamond key.
2005 and newer – this generation of BMW uses a keyless fob with the ‘push to start’ feature. There are two styles of fobs; one with keyless entry (or comfort access) and one without. If you can access your car without pressing a button on the remote, you will know your car is fitted with comfort access.
Reduced signal strength
Are you noticing your key is only working when you are close to your car? As your key’s battery wears out, its signal strength will reduce until it is unable to open your car at all using the unlock button. It is best to have your key’s battery replaced when you notice its signal strength is decreasing before the battery flattens completely.
- Multiple clicks to unlock the doors
When your car key is functioning properly, it will be able to unlock your doors in a single click (please note, some cars have a safety function that only unlocks the driver’s door on the initial click). If your key is taking multiple clicks to unlock, this is a common sign that the battery’s functionality is decreased.
- Inconsistent performance
If your car has a press start feature that is activated by a key fob, this will become inconsistent when the battery requires a replacement.
As a fail-safe feature, most BMW and Mini Cooper models have a traditional key blade within the key fob in case the battery runs out. This will allow you to unlock your car manually and start the ignition.
For a more in-depth explanation of how to access this manual key and the keyhole on the door, which is often hidden, the below videos could help. However, using a manual key entry should be a temporary fix, so don’t forget to drop into GMW Perth to replace your key fob’s battery.
