Key FOB stuck car dead for 40 mins then

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey,
I am just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this problem I am having. I recently had to have my door lock changed as it was broken. After the install I have found that a few times I jump in the car and try to start. Everything lights up then dead almost instantly. The key FOB gets stuck then in about 5 mins later I hear a ticking sound and the flasher button on the dash board start to blink rapidly sync with the ticking sound.

I have to leave the Key FOB stuck in as the car wont start, but after about 40 mins later it starts. This has happend to me about 5 times now since I have installed the new key. Is it related or co-incidence ?

I had my battery and alternator checked and all read fine ok.

Puzzled what the problem is and what do you guys recommend I do?

Thanks

PS. Also I have noticed most times after driving for a while and then I turn the car off I get a symbol relating to coolant low. But my coolant level is fine. Any other reasons why I might be getting this symbol?

Possible bad battery. When the battery is weak, everything will go wrong.

Anytime a car acts up electronically, the first thing to check is ALL fuses, etc. Start there.

OK I don't experience the car dieing or it not being able to start after parking. Although the longest I have parked it maybe 8 hours at a time. It's my daily driver. I do however notice that the clock always reset after that 40 minutes death.

I exported the car from the USA to here Jamaica so no coverage from dealers. Is Is there anyway I can get the location of this fuse box? Is it the one on top top the battery that needs replacing ?

The fuse box is on the glovebox, is not visible, you have to take out the panel of the top.

Also besides of the fuse box you have to replace the cable that's connected from the battery (in the trunk) to the fuse box.

Search here about that recall and you going to find all the info and parts that you need
