Reseting KeyYes, I've always had to have the dealer's service department reset the key. I believe the dealer has to do it for security reasons.

WRONG!!!

Insert the key into the ignition, turn to position one, within 5 seconds remove key, hold down lock button on key, simultaneously press unlock button 3 times. Doors will lock and unlock and you're done.

How much does a dealer charge you for a 30 second fix?

Begin by removing the retaining ring at the top of your 1998 BMW ignition switch. The ignition switch will slide out. Remove the wiring harness.

There is a problem with your charging system. May be a defective alternator or something else.

As long as the part number is 61 32 6 901 961 then the answer is yes.

Driving a Vehicle with a Charging System Warning Light IlluminatedIF there is enough current left in the battery to start the vehicle, AND properly supply the ignition system, then yes, it is possible to drive the vehicle. But, doing so could cause further damage to the charging system, and when the battery power level goes low enough, the ignition system could shut down and you will be stranded.Therefore, I strongly recommend NOT driving the vehicle until you have had the charging system checked out and properly repaired. This is especially true if it is dark and you will need to use the headlights, tail lights, and marker lights, all of which draw a lot of current and will acclerate "draining" of the battery!

Why in the world would you want to do that? The light is there to warn you there is a problem with the charging system. If it is on, there is a reason. But if you insist, just pull the bulb out.

Usually indicates a charging system problem. Could be as simple as a broken alternator belt.

Check the BMW for ignition fire. Check the coil pack. Check the distributor or crank sensor depending on the year of the car.

Fuses protect a circuit. The battery and charging system provide power.

It is not normal because that is a common ignition failure. This is can be caused by a broken lock pin in cylinder assembly.

Your battery is dead or you need to check the ignition switch.

How can I take out the key from the ignition key in a BMW 325i 2001. I can turn on the engine but the key doesn't come out when I turn off.

Basically, it makes the car impossible to start if the EWS (the computer) does not detect the proper key in the ignition switch.

It is more than likely defective. Any auto parts store will check it for you for free.
