I think that my car, originally, had a keyless entry system because the original key has a button that has a battery in it but nothing else. Also, the drivers door has like a motor "thingy"(i know its a very desciptive word) that turns the lock, however i do not know how to lock the car. Basically, what i need to know is what i need in order for this to work properly, if it is possible.

keyless entry wasnt a factory option til 92 I'm pretty sure. It could be installed at a dealer as a aftermarket option, but an original bmw key w/ remote entry wasnt available til mid model e34's and initial e36's.

if there is a hole in the top of the key then it is a flashlight key.

if the door doesnt lock when you try to lock it with the key the tumbler is damaged. it isnt a completely electronic lock like on some of the newer vehicles.

Simply answer for the motor, can be simple lock motor hahah... But yeah even some e36's didn't have keyless entry but the key with a button and the lil bulb. But still had a motor. And yes its worth it i have it.

By the way i'm talking to a distributor that sells car alarms and HID kits so if anyone is interested just give me a pm
