My Ride: Bmw m3 e46 smg
Bmw m3 e46 smg wont start

Hi guys

I have recently bought an e46 m3 smg and now the car wont start.

The gear is stuck it wont move and i dont get any signs when i turn the ignition no 0 or 1 sign comes up on the dash where the gears are displayed and the oil gauge hits max when key turns to position 2.

I bought a new battery but nothing changed i tried replacing the relay did not help and i also got a guy to come out diagnose it and the all it said was incorrect key, and the would not allow for the ec or engine error codes to be read. I ordered a new key from dealer but it did not change anything.

I have read alot of post on umerous forums but no one seems to have experienced any thng like this.

Would really appreciate an help

Was the key initialized properly by the dealer?
