Hi there - haven't been here in a while - not since I bought my 330Ci
back in '02, and you guys were extremely helpful then - I'm hoping you
can answer a silly question now...
I've recently traded into a 335 Coupe which I love! But I have a
question about the key FOBs....
I've programmed all my user settings with one key FOB. Is there any
way to simply apply the same settings to the other key FOB? When I
insert the 2nd key, all settings reset - all radio presets, climate
settings, etc.. revert to default/blank settings. It seems I have to
program all the settings again from scratch for the 2nd key FOB. I
can't find anything in the manual - hoping someone here knows how to
Not a huge deal, but it would be nice if I could simply copy the same
settings to the 2nd FOB...
Any ideas? Is this possible?
The assumption is that you have a key fob in your pocket, and your wife has
a fob in her purse. You use your fob and the car sets itself to you, your
wife uses her fob and the car sets itself to her. If you swap fobs, then you
have to set both of them the same so the car does not change from one fob to
the other. If you set one fob, then the other fob is setting to default
settings, and you need to set the second fob, so the car sets the seats and
mirror to the same settings for both fobs.
Exactly. Thanks for the replies, but I know how they work. What I'd
like to do though, is set them both the same as a baseline. The only
thing that will change or be different between us is a small seat
adjustment. All the climate, radio, nav, lighting, etc, settings
should be the same on both. Sounds like there's no way to copy the
settings to BOTH FOBs - I'll just have to program them both
individually I guess...
