Bavarian Motor Works (BMW) is a German automobile company that manufactures and markets performance and luxury vehicles. BMW automobiles feature a keyless entry system that is built into the key and allows you to unlock and lock the doors and boot with the press of a button.

    Press and hold the "Unlock" button on your key.

    Press the "Lock" button on the key three times. Your key is now reset and should function properly.
