Unhappy I Need Help


Hi I am new to this site as well as i just got a 2006 bmw 325xi last night and i have a few questions.


1. is the key wont unlock the doors or lock them. I looked at a few posts on how to re program the key but they are all for older sets (requiring me to insert the key and turn to mode 1) but my key is you just put it in and there is a push start button. So is there any one who knows how to re programm this key since it doesnt have a battery (my first thought on changin the batteries on it) but it recharges them.

2. When i insert a dvd on the dvd slot the screen says the dvd is unreadable. This is a normal movie and i tried all other movies and even dvd discs with music videos on it and it doesnt recognize them. Am i doing something wrong?

3. how do you programm the garage opener thats located in the mirror?

4. FInal question is with the navigation. Why do you need to put a navigation cd in? if so where do i get one because my car didnt come with one?

any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, alboss2010 AND Welcome!
1. Keys need to be programmed by your dealer. But it's good idea to charge battery before you ask them to reprogram - because it cost $$
2. 2006 325i DVD slot can not play DVD movies, but can play MP3 - 4.7 gb MP3. But in this case you lost navigation.
3. for programing garage opener I post at list twice here and at list twice on Bimmerfest. Please search.

OK - here is one post
4. Because 2006 E90 navigation system base on DVD map, software constantly read from this disk. Latest model of BMW equipped with Hard Drive based navigation. Hint where to get DVD - look for post on this forum with word Torrent.
