BMW initially developed the Smart Key for the 7 Series and now makes it available on other BMW vehicles. The integrated key does not actually start the vehicle. Rather, you insert into a slot in the dashboard to enable the activation of the push-button start feature. The key is concealed in a remote control with the BMW logo. The logo doubles as a lock for the remote control. It grants access to the three other buttons on the remote. Those buttons will unlock the vehicle, the truck, and illuminate the headlights.

Skill level:


    Remote Control

  1. 1

    Depress the BMW logo. It will unlock the remote control and enable use of the three other buttons.

  2. 2

    Depress the top button above the BMW logo to unlock the vehicle.

  3. 3

    Depress the button directly below the BMW logo to open the boot.

  4. 4

    Depress the button at the bottom of the remote, below the boot button. It will activate the headlamps.

    Integrated Key

  1. 1

    Flip the remote control over. Depress the button at the top of the remote.

  2. 2

    Pull the key away from the top of the remote.

  3. 3

    Take the key out of the remote. The key fits the driver's door, the boot lid and the centre armrest storage compartment, in addition to the dashboard.
