Hello,
Does anyone know how to program a new bmw key?
I bought a 98 528I and the car came with only 1 key. I just ordered a new key, but the dealer just cut the key. It was not programmed. So far I can only start and stop the car, but cannot use the lock/unlock feature.
I don't wanna go back to the dealer because it's too far and I cdon't have the time.
Can anybody help me?
Thanks.
