    BMW e61 key problem

    i didnt snip the wire,, i checked to see if it was earthing, and it didnt seem to be, i checked the voltage at it and it was 1.7 or something, it was going down as i measured it. I tried putting 12v to it and it made no difference.

    is it 12v? i will snip the wire and put a fused 12v to it and see what happens?

    BMW e61 key problem

    was looking at it again today, my multi meter was all over the place when looking for the 12v lines, it could be the wiring, but i have taken it back the the speaker int he roof and repaired anything suspect. Now, all the fuses are ok in the boot, if i put a 12v to the two wires going the module, it wont matter will it? They arnt grounding out when checked with my multimeter. Also what is the big red wire for that goes into it? that has no voltage to it. thanks

    BMW e61 key problem

    i didnt have the ignition on, i have replaced all teh wires in the rear loom, and everything apart from the glass worked, the glass i think is the switch on the window as when i unplug and replug it in i can hear the boot lock move. There is no signs of corrosion i could see, everything looked nice, but is it likely to be the module still? i will check the voltages tomorrow... looking on ebay they are like £250+!!

    right, so get it apart, just took the cover off the glass lock and it came open! module in the tailgate looks good, there is a main live to it and there is a main earth to it, they seem good. there is a little cable that plugs into it with 4 wires, im getting voltages there too. the antena has slight white on the plug but i was not 100% sure at it was getting dark. the key i cut it open and that has 3v on the battery, it looks good inside too. what would you say is the issue? the module just gone? thanks

    BMW e61 key problem

    BMW e61 520d 2008 Cane to the car this morning and the key fob didn't do anything, so I used the key inside of the fob. That unlocked the car but the alarm went off. Soon as I put the key in the car started but won't recognise the fob to lock it . What is the problem please ???

    could be never thought of that, there does seem to be a bit of back lash in the drive, so maybe it is that.
