THE GENERAL DATA

It is possible to put also a copy of number of keys together with own documents.


The car is completed with two keys

The basic key (black colour) – approaches to all locks. This key is necessary for service of car-care centre "BMW" for manufacturing of a new key with the built in microcircuit of a radio beacon (транспондера).

The spare key (usually grey colour) – approaches to all locks except the lock of a cover of a luggage carrier.


The radio beacon microcircuit is built in heads of the basic and spare keys (транспондера) from which works the lock. Therefore, at all do not lose keys. If you make own duplicate cannot cause operation of security system or start the engine.

For protection of the things locked in a luggage carrier at a car parking leave a spare key to the accompanying person.

Immobilizer system (recognition of a code of start-up of the engine)

The engine will be started only in the event that the transmitted coded signal completely will coincide with an identification code of the car.

When the key gets from the ignition lock there is an automatic installation of an identification code. When the key of the given car is inserted into the ignition lock, the transferred code cancels action of the anticreeping system interfering start of the engine.
