Re: remote start

I have a e34 with remote start. the locks on bmw's are air blown so they say they are afraid to touch it because if they harm the air system they dont want to pay for it. But if you go somewhere and the guys are cool they will do it and no problems yet. (It comes with keyless entry) The only bad thing is the srs dummy light comes on because they have to take apart your steering colum to get to the key ring. They take a thin copper wire from the ring and wrap it around the micro chip that they take from your key. (the set up has its own starter kill built in) now your key is like a old school car. Every thing else works percect and from very far away too. the only bad side is going to the dealer and having to pay a tech to reset you airbag (srs) light.

Hi, How do you mean air blown, all the bm's ive worked on have acutators for the door lock mechanism ?, what model are you talking about as ive worked on most and have never seen this, very interested to see one.

Hi, the locks in the doors are electric actuators but when the tech pulls up the install guide for 95 525i it shows a silver box under the dash board and the directions go from there and it worns of risk of harm to the air locking mechanism if the remote is pressed while the doors of the car are open. but the alarm wont let you press the buttom when they are open. (I had to try it). maybe its only on the 95 model because it has a passenger side air bag. I dont know I just had to go to two shops (Best Buy and Circut City) and they both showd me the same install instructions on there store computer. but Circut City installed it for only $213.00 so It works and I'm loving it. I don't know if this was any help on the info and I couldn't find any layouts of the 95 e34 locking system. If I come up with one I'll post it. Thanks for the Quiz.

The E34s are all electric, 5-wire actuators. Your remote start guys are thinking of the older Mercedes. I dont recall any bimmers were air. About the only goofy thing in the E39s is the security in the key you have to contend with. Other than that its like a Ford Taurus, they're fairly simple. I would hope in a month, he would've found someone to install it.
