Hi all, I just bought a 1998 318ti, I got few problems need help with.

1) I only have valet key for the car (the grey one), so which mean I can't open my glove box or the trunk???

2) The central locking system don't work, when I push the button nothing happening, no click or sound of anything, is this relay to the cause that I don't have the Master Keys??? or something wrong with my central locking system (I check all the fuses, they all working fine)???

3) Also when I put the valet key in the driver door lock, it will only open the driver door lock (the right side door don't pop open), is this how the valet key work, only unlock the door you try to open on one side?

4) The car should have keyless remote system, but I don't have them, is it the cause of my central locking system not working, because the system disable the cental locking system???

5) I open the Master keys already, would that help for the cental locking system???


Please help !!! I don't know what to do!!! thanks alot ghead

Alright. First thing you should do: GET A MASTER KEY!!!!! All of those things could easily be related to you trying to work with a valet key only. I ordered a key a couple of days ago; all I had was the clunky lighted key, which was also looking worn and old. It was only $31. I say, go to the dealership, get a new key, and let us know how it all goes. I get the feeling that all your problems will go away. I know for sure it will solve (1).
