Thread: Keyless Entry and the E34, yes/no?

  1. #1

    Default Keyless Entry and the E34, yes/no?

    I wanted to get a keyless entry for my e34 but heard that messing with the electronics is not recommended, what are peoples thoughts, experience with keyless entries and which do you recommend?

    Default Are you sure it's not there?

    Have you checked under the driver's side back seat to make certain the module is not there? If it is, you only need the remote fob(s).

    My 1989 (9/88 Production Date) 525i did not have the connector which would have made installing a keyless really easy. I don't know about the 535iM

    what does this connector look like, basically if you are looking under the seat how do you know if you have it or not?

    All that's needed for keyless is a module and key fob?

    How would one go about getting a key fob?

    Oh and yes pics of this module... I have a '90 535im with heated seats / sun roof / lsd if it makes a difference.

    Default Should be a green 26-pin connector

    It will be located under the rear right passenger seat. 89-90 did not have this option....at least not on the 525i.

    My 1989 535im has a viper alarm system, which actually works EXTREMELY well.
