My Ride: 325ci convertible
After changing to led interior lights now key fob does not work.

I have searched and tried the reprogramming as instructed at least 15 times do convertible owners have to do something different? And now it also beeps when i take the key out of the ignition until I close the door.
Please help its been over a month now and its driving me crazy.

Changing your interior lights to LED will not affect your alarm or key fob. That's for sure.

As far as I am aware, the pairing process for the key and car is exactly the same as any other BM e46.

You are unfortunately not doing it correctly.

I know through my own experience that this took me ages to do because the timing needs to be spot on.

Re-read a precise set of instructions and retry. You also need to ensure that you hold the key high up enough to catch the sensor, holding it in the centre of the car, where the vanity lights are situated.

Maybe changing my interior lights did not effect my key fob. But what did was me pulling fuses because only some of the led's would work only to find out my plug and play led kit was not indeed plug and play.
i must have tried the reprogramming at least 10 times yesterday while i was waiting to get a hair cut. Over the right shoulder the left shoulder by the rear view mirror. ill have my Indy look at it next time I'm getting some work done.

Pulling fuses is never a good idea.

Are you sure the fuses are seated properly?

Have you unplugged the battery and let the car sit for an hour?

This will reset everything, and may deactivate your alarm system.
