I just purchased my 98 323is from a used car dealership this weekend. I was given 2 keys and neither of them seem to operate the keyless entry which it was said to have. I looked in the trunk and on the left side it says that "this car is pre wired for BMW 6 cd, BMW cell phone, and BMW security/keyless entry." I was wondering, if i were to buy a keyless entry remote off ebay or something would I be able to program it? Does anyone know what I would need to do. any help is appreciated.

Big gulps huh, well cya later.

Mine wasn't working either when I got it. I tried changing the battery, and everything, but nothing. Bought one off ebay for 20.00 and it works perfectly. If you need the intialization instructions, let me know.

Thats the thing, i have one key that has the light on it when you press the button and the other key must be a valet key. Because the trunk says wired for bmw sercurity/keyless entry does that mean that i can buy a keyless remote and program it?

oohh ok..

Check for the alarm modulde behind the glovebox. If it's there then get FOB from ebay. if its not get whole kit from Ebay or bavauto. Or a alarm or keyless kit from stellar. Both sold by bavauto.

Right. All cars are prewired since 92. Doesnt mean it has it though.

You don't happen to have the installation procedure for the alarm, do you? I had my dad rip mine out of my old 1992 beemer with remote to put in my new car... but I'm not too sure where exactly to install it.

My son has a 98 323is with wireless entry. The remote is not on the key. It is a small 1.25" square key fob with 2 buttons IIRC. The alarm box is under the glove box on top of the panel above the passenger footwell. Look there for a smal box with wires connected and a small, loose antenna wire.
