Integrated universal remote control*
The integrated universal remote control can replace as many as three hand-held transmitters for various remote-controlled accessories, such as garage and gate or lighting systems. The integrated universal remote control registers and stores signals from the original handheld transmitters.
The signal of an original hand-held transmitter can be programmed on one of the three memory buttons 1. After this, the programmed memory button 1 will operate the system in question. The LED 2 flashes to confirm transmission of the signal.
Should you sell your vehicle one day, be sure to delete the stored programs beforehand for your safety.
⚠To prevent possible damage or injury, before programming or using the integrated universal remote control, always inspect the immediate area to make certain that no people, animals or objects are within the travel
range of the device. Also, comply with the safety precautions of the original hand-held transmitter.◀
If you see this symbol on the packaging or in the manual supplied with the original hand-held transmitter, it is safe to assume that it is compatible with the integrated universal remote control.
▶If you have additional questions, please contact your BMW center or call: 1-800-355-3515.

1 Memory buttons
Fixed-code hand-held transmitters
- Switch on ignition.
- When starting operation for the first time: Press the left and right-hand memory button 1 for approx. 20 seconds until the LED 2 flashes quickly. All stored programs are deleted.
- Hold the original hand-held transmitter at a distance of approx. 4 in/10 cm to 12 in/ 30 cm from the memory buttons 1.
▶The required distance between the hand-held transmitter and the memory buttons 1 depends on the relevant system of the original hand-held transmitter used.◀
- Simultaneously press the transmit button on the original hand-held transmitter and the desired memory button 1 on the integrated universal remote control. The LED 2 flashes slowly at first. As soon as the LED 2 flashes rapidly, release both buttons. If the LED 2 does not flash rapidly after approx. 15 seconds, alter the distance and repeat the step.
- To program other original hand-held transmitters, repeat steps 3 and 4.
▶If the device fails to function even after repeated programming, check whether the original hand held transmitter uses an alternating-code system. To do so, either read the instructions for the original hand-held transmitter or hold down the programmed memory button 1 of the integrated universal remote control.
If the LED 2 on the integrated universal remote control flashes rapidly for a short time and then remains lit for approx. 2 seconds, this indicates that the original hand-held transmitter uses an alternating-code system. In the case of an alternating-code system, program the memory buttons 1 as described at Alternating-code
Alternating-code hand-held transmitters
To program the integrated universal remote control, consult the operating instructions for the equipment to be set. You will find information there on the possibilities for synchronization. When programming hand-held transmitters that employ an alternating code, please observe the following supplementary instructions:
▶Programming will be easier with the aid of a second person.◀
- Park your vehicle within the range of the remote-controlled device.
- Program the integrated universal remote control as described above in the section Fixed-code hand-held transmitters.
- Locate the button on the receiver of the device to be set, e.g. on the drive unit.
- Press the button on the receiver of the device to be set. After step 4, you have approx. 30 seconds for step 5.
