Hey guys thanks for all ur support on my questions, atleast it gave me some info, but today i can breath becuz all the problems are fized,

the central locking thing that kept on blowing the fuse, this is what he did after working 2 - 3 hrs on my car trying to figuring out where the short is and failing, he replace the 25amp fuse to the one with 30amp and it doesnt blow up, he also told me that it wont matter becuz the short is less than 5 amp so its not blowing the fuse now and plus u dont have to keep on using central locking now and then so the wire wont get hot and it will stay trouble free, so can i trust him or i shouldnt do that, i mean it works fine now.

OK i have this red light and this black sensor thingie next to my heated seats switches and i figured out that i have keyless entry in my car, its a 1994 318i and which remote do i have to look for programming and how many keys do i need to program the remotes and which remote should i get send me some links what should i get and how do i program them.

^^ Wow, those were two pretty long sentences. I think I understood what you are wanting to communicate, but please excuse me if my answers are completely unrelated to what you need.

Replacing a fuse with a higher rating is not a very good practice. That is bad for the central locking system, because now you are allowing more current than recommended to run through the circuit. Hoepfully, everything will be fine. However, in all likelyhood if anything goes bad now, it will not be a fuse, but the actual central locking system may say its farewell.

Before you go out looking for remotes, you need to know what kind of alarm/keyless entry system you have installed in your car. Once you know that, come back and let us know. You can inquiere with your local dealership whether the car came with the factory keyless entry system. If that is the case, check for the price of remotes with them.

Good luck.

+1 on drz's response... with fuse i wouldnt be too worried, but 90% of the time you would not want to do anythng like that with the fuses... itll just mess your car into oblivion if your not careful...
