Here is a instruction on how to use Autel IM608 programmer to add new BDC/FEM key for BMW 320i 2013.More about key programming for BMW,please check it here:BMW Key programming
What You Need
2.BMW FEM/BDC test platform
3.A existing working smart key
4.New/blank smart key
1.This is an advanced level procedure
2.Only F-chassis are supported
3.Check first to see if vehicle has had keys added before via obd (if the BMW car is added keys before by obd,you can access Autel IM608 to do new key adding directly)
4.If it is first time to add new key on the BMW car,we need to remove FEM/BDC module from vehicle
5.Before we attempt to add a key,we need to “Jailbreak” the FEM or BDC only one time.After that you can add additional keys by obd.
6.We will be using the “Smart Mode” function that is a sequence of step by step guided instructions.
7.Adding the key can be done via Bench or OBD
Location of FEM
Before remove FEM/BDC,we need to disconnect the negative battery terminal
After then we are going to see the right side of passenger
That is kind of where the FEM is located
After remove FEM,please take pictures of FEM fuses (you need to restore back after programming)
If it is an FEM system,the chip will be labeled M95128
If it is an BDC system,the chip will be labeled M95256
After then we need build connection
Please follow below diagram
