Keyless Entry Not Working
Hello, I just purchased a 2004 Mini Cooper S yesterday. I was only given one key and it has 2 buttons, one with a mini logo, the other with has a lock symbol. Neither of the buttons seem to do anything, so I thought I may have had a dead battery in the remote. I replaced the battery and still nothing, but the red light does appear when buttons are pressed.
I then thought it may just need to be programmed so i went through the key programming process. Closing all the doors, putting key in ignition turning to one click, then removing the key and holding the logo button down and pressing the lock button three times and releasing simultaneously. Nothing happened when I did that so I tried it a few more times and still got nothing.
After that I checked the fuses and made sure that they were all un-blown and they were all fine. I can stick the key in the door and all the doors will lock/unlock, and the switch on the inside console works as well.
I do not know what else to try, Does anyone have any ideas as to what I could check next?
