I recently lost the keys to my 2005 BMW x5 and had a tow service open it up via the passenger front window. The lock switch will not work now. Is there a reset? I cannot activate a new key w/o it!


So more information is needed as a few things could be happening. Such as does the vehicle have keyless entry and a key fob, Also this vehicle may use what is called a master key which must be present when a new key is added. I am assuming you are trying to reprogram a new key and perhaps you are at the point of programming that requires locking or unlocking through the vehicle master (driver-door) switch. I posted a link to a couple ways to program a new key as more then one option exists for manual programming which is programming without a BMW scan tool. One other thing to check is the actual door that was opened, look closely at the latch and make sure it is not damaged and or a little lever may exist to disable the automatic lock unlock. If you see a little slot with a metal tab, that may need to be switched back to allow the lock to work. You can test this by using the key in the door to attempt to unlock it manually. http://www.programyourkeys.com/BMW_X5_Key_Remote_Control_Fob_Programming.html

HOW DO I FIND THE LOCATION OF THE 2001 BMW X5 3.O emergency fuel door release?


Open the boot and to the right hand side of the boot you will see a green round button pull on it and it will pull the locking actuator back allowing you to open the fuel flap, if you can't see the green button then it may have dropped behind the boot cover and you will need to pull the cover back to get to the green pull button.

My bmw x5 door handle will not open even the door is unlocked,i can't get to the other door because they are locked.


How did you get the driver's door unlocked. Your other doors should unlock by hitting your key fob button twice. Sounds like the door handle came disconnected or broken.
