The story behind BMW digital keys

For the last 2 decades motor vehicle are tending to adopt electric transponder keys that are programmed to be in sync with the vehicle ECM (ECU). When a driver insert the key to the ignition slot, a signal is sent to the vehicle, if the code doesn't match the one stored in the car, the engine will not start or maybe even locked for couple of minutes. German manufacturers of automobiless like BMW are securing their automobiles even further with a high security laser cut keys and unique programmers since 1995.

What is the rolling code system?

BMW uses a rolling code transponder key that switches its value every time the key is turn in the ignition. When a motor vehicle is manufactured, 10 unique chips are programmed into the immobilization system. A specific number of keys are supplied when the car is purchased, and every time a key is lost, a new keys should be reserved from a dealer. Once all 10 keys are allocated, the whole immobiliser must be replaced or reflashed.

Why do I even care?

Lost keys San Jose CAIn the old days getting a duplicate or recovering from a lost key situation was merley a trip to the dealership or to a local key made shop who can cut BMW keys. However, with transponder keys, cutting the key will only enable you to unlock/lock the door or trunk, but without programmble registration of the key to the car, the key will nut start the engine. This means that the car need to be present at the moment of the key creation.

BMW remote head keys

The first generation of electric keys models used the rubber button key with three buttons and self replaceable lithium battery. During year 2000 was replaced with the diamond shaped remote key. Four buttons fobic-key is used on 7-series (E65/E66/E67/E68) from 2002 through 2008 and 3 buttons keyless entry device is for many BMWs from the 2006 to about 2011. Latest models also armed with the Comfort Access keyless entry device.

Immobilizer vs Alarm/Locking system

Each type of the keys above have 3 entirely separate features that work in conjunction with eachother:

  1. EWS - immobilizer that shuts off ignition/fuel/spark for a non-recognized key. This feature DOES NOT need a battery, but require proprietary software/hardware
  2. DWA - battery operated anti-theft siren system - can be programmed by the owner using dash-board procedure.
  3. FZV/FBZV - battery operated locking system/keyless entry (can also be programmed by the owner).

In our experience

If you have problems starting your car, the key battery is most likely not to blame, since the EWS don't need no battery to start the engine. In most cases the battery should last for life-time of the car! If you have a reason to think that the battery is dead or damaged you can try change or recharge it (for some newer style keys) by inserting it into the ignition, because a dead key battery will interrupt the DWA/FZV functions...but the key should still be able to start the car.

BMW key fob wont work

Although it can be a symptom of a cylinder or other ignition problem, especially with the fobik-keys, when you the key wont turn in the ignition, it is because of a dead battery... The car main computer will not recognize that that door was opened and will not release the lock.
