Unhappy BMW E60 530d CAS/Key Issue

Hi all

First post, so please be gentle with me

I have purchased an E60 530d direct from an insurance company, which was stolen & then later recovered. I purchased the car with no keys. The car is unlocked, but showing nothing on the dash. Only power to the car is the ability to turn the radio on.

I went to my local BMW dealer, handed V5 and identification over, and got a replacement key for the car at 150, hoping that it would fire straight up, but all I get is a symbol in yellow, showing a key with a line through it.

I took it to a BMW specialist, to see if the CAS needed coding back up to the DDE, however it was coded together fine. The only thing it did say (He uses autologic), was that the key was invalid.

I think the car has been laid up for a few months, with a flat battery. The specialist said that sometimes if the battery has been dead for a while, the CAS can lose its last code that it got from the last key, and he thinks that this maybe the problem. He is suggesting that I buy a new CAS kit (including full key set & barrells) from BMW.

Can anyone tell me if there is anything I can do or try, before my last resort of spending nearly 500 on a CAS kit with keys?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers
Craig

Take your car to a specialist wich use some OEM BMW keylearning device by OBD.
Your problem can be:
When they stole the car ,they made key on the same location in CAS where you order from BMW.
Sow if you order for exemple key nr 4 that location in CAS is already used *(and modified) buy another tool..and BMW key wich you try not have same data,and will never work

Have you tried re syncing CAS / DDE?

Maybe when they stole the car that put their own CAS module in...

Or diagnoza is correct, you can by some cheap tool to read CAS key data and see enabled keys in EEPROM.

turn off the existing keys, the stolen key needs to be turned off in cas and then see if your new key will show up with the autologic. Most tech's in the shops only deal with replacing new modules and not much with stolen cars. Im not 100% sure what to tell you have not ran into that problem before.
