Key works, but FOB gives me 3 beeps... and doors do not lock or unlock. What do I do?

Asked by Jul 06, 2015 at 09:30 AM about the 1998 BMW 3 Series 323i Convertible

Question type: General

I have a 1998 323i convertible (E36 M52 stick). My key works fine in the locks and trunk
lock. However, when I use the FOB, I get 3 beeps... and the door locks & trunk do not
lock or unlock. I have followed the proc to reset the FOB mult times, with no success.
There is nothing obvious here from what I can see. Any recommendations? I really do not
want to have to take this to a stealer.

Thank you very much for the quick response. I have attempted these procedures mult times, with no success - the 3 beeps continue. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Tx...
