My Ride: 325i
Keys and locks

I purchased a 325i with no key, as i had a 330i write off I changed the ignition, door and boot locks for the ones in the 330i along with the ECU and EWS.
I now have a 325i that runs but the central locking only works from the key when it is used in the drivers door lock, the buttons have no effect.

Anyone who could point me in the right direction of where to go next would a great help thanks

You should be able to find the key programming procedure by searching in Google. That might solve your problem.

If not, you may need to program VIN numbers into the modules from your old car so they match the vin on the new car. I know people do this for new transmissions and I have to do it for my new nav system. It might be a good idea regardless if it fixes your problem or not.
