Car: 2009 bmw 3 series
There is no working key on the vehicle.
All keys lost
Can it be done by obd? Vvdi2 Or is it istap? Can vvdi prog read isn?
There may be different systems installed on this vehicle, CAS2 or CAS3 / 3 + OR CAS3 + ista you have to connect and you look to see the CAS version, the vvdi will tell you when you connect . If it’s Ista, read the eeprom with vvdi prog and program a blank key with vvdi2
Use this method or load ECU dump if without any working keys
was cas 3/3+
Got key info obd
Chose key position
Programmed under dealer key
if akl & updated do not wind back or you will need isn if fails , we never wind back , if can get isn easy , if can’t or don’t want to risk it , read cas on bench , load Vvdi , do key in out , always try key in out 2 x with battery support , then click no it mods key then try again , always works but might take few goes never fails
If someone else been & wound back you can’t do that
If not updated can add key obd or on bench
