Autel MaxiIM IM608 won’t do BMW Mini with EWS3. Tried all different ways, from reading it with another tool using the eeprom data etc. But it does have the function to code a new remote using the barcode. IM608 coded the remote through diagnostic but won’t program chip.
Barcode programming is under Immo or Diagnostics Menu. This whole post is about registering the RKE to the Electric Body Control (its not about the chip).
Go to Diagnostic – service – body – central body – then you’ll see the function (ZKE Central Body Electronics BC1 Redesign). You can test the key was well to make sure it’s sensing a signal.
Need to enter both lines of barcode but remove certain numbers/letters from the beginning and end. This barcode, it’s on the two-button remote.
you need to enter parts from the first line and parts from the second line. Need calculate the barcode into the separate parts.
FYI: If chip key, nothing beats the AK90 for EWS key.
