I am a new owner of a 2005 330 CIC. Wow, what a great car! I do not live near a dealer. Is there any way for me to program the keys or memory for the car to set up the options I want. Is this a dealer only job?
Thanks

You can program a remote master key yourself.

1. Insert key into ignition.
2. Turn key one click to accessory, wait aprrox 5 secs.
3. Turn key back to off position.
4. Take key out and hold unlock button down at the same time tap the roundel(lock) button 3 times.


If your car locks, your key is programmed. Not sure if this is what you wanted.

I got a little confused with the programming of the keys, which is why I looked up this website, however (after 2 years) and 4 visits to the dealer and new keys, the dealers were obviously confused too, I have finally figured it out.

For programming some of the options such as "auto door locks", "memory seats enable" etc, It has to be done at the dealer. The first time is free, after that it's C$100.00 per time.

For the seats/mirrors/heating (which is where I had the difficulty) the computer will remember where the seat, mirrors and heating was, when you either use that key to lock it, or use the power door lock. Manually locking the door (with the key) - it will not remember.

I might point out, the handbook is not very specific about this.

Hope that helps.

Does anyone have a list of the features which can be programmed into the key? I was planning on getting the autolock activated on my key, but I guess if they are reprogramming my key I might as well get more of the features activated. ) They charge 30 in the uk.

That is NOT programming a key...all that does is initalize the key to the car. This proceedure is used for new keys that have yet to be assigned to the car. if you are looking for auto-lock features and what not, you have to take the vehicle to the dealer...sorry.
