I've done a few searches here and haven't found the answer I'm after.
So, I've just fitted a new 3.0ltr V8 to my 530i which hasn't been running for about 2 years. The key was flat so I replaced the batteries and went through the key initialization sequence. Bear in mind I only have one key!
The initialization sequence was followed to the letter but has not worked. The owners manual says that the vehicle will need to be taken to the nearest BMW Service Centre as the system is probably locked?
Is there something I can do to get around or reset this?
I still get all ignition/dash lights etc, just no cranking (no power to the start solenoid) and I can't hear the fuel pump going.
Not sure if it's related or not but the Radio code is also not being accepted by the factory radio.
