Hi How Are U Hope U Are All Good. I Bought A Bmw 740il 2000 Model Full Options But I Have A Problem It Takes A Long Time To Start But It Cranks. U Have To Flip The Key Or Sometimes U Have To Put The Gear In Drive (d) And Then Back To Park (p) And When U Start The Car It Runs. And Sometimes When U Crank It For A Long Time U Can Smell The Gasoline. But When It Starts It Has No Problem. I Took It To The Mechanic And When Putting It On The Computer It Showed That There Is A Problem In The Sensor Inside The Ignition And It Needs To Be Programmed. I Programed It Was Back To Normal It Starts From The First Crank But After A Couple Of Days It Start To Take A Long Time To Start (same As Before) I Asked The Mechanic Again He Told Me That He Needs All The Keys To Program (4 Keys). Is That True Please Advise How To Program What To Do
