Key/ Remote Question

My car doesn't flash the emergency flashers/ beep or anything else when i open or close the doors. i don't have BMW or third party Alarm system. so the question is is there a way for me to do something so car lights would flash when i open or close the doors? the reason i am asking is because there have been times that i thought i closed the doors but next day i see that i left it open !

Go to the dealer they'll be able to enable the flashing indicators, clown-nose, auto HVAC, etc. for a set price. It varies but I've seen $65 to $110 in my area

If you do a bit of research, you'll see all the things they can reprogram for that price.

Make your list, check it twice, and you'll get a one-time cost.

Sure you can ask them. Will they do it is another question though.

Those keys are what, around $250? They might help you out considering you've spent some money already but don't hold your breath.
